It's neither scary or very interesting thanks to bad acting and writing, but can sometimes be funny because of this. Other times I just wanted to punch people in the face for their sheer stupidity. All of this should come as no surprise if you are a fan of the genre. It's plenty gory and one scene in particular will stick with me for awhile. If you just want an old-fashioned horror film that has some positives and most of the negatives of the horror genre, give this a whirl. Otherwise I wouldn't really bother.

It definitely caught me off guard at times with the amount of bloody violence and sexual content that Batman has never had in any film I've seen. It felt completely out of character for the series, which is again why they should have named it something else. It has quality animation and the voice talent is top notch like always, but this feels out of place. If you are familiar with the Suicide Squad and are interested than watch it, but Batman fans might feel like this is a little too far.

Not only is the plot completely a gimmick and not worth the charm of the characters, but it lost the fun and replaced it with bad one liners and too much goofiness. A lack of ideas is evident from the get go. It's just not fun at all and does not explore what made the TMNT characters so popular. They also changed the puppets and they were not as good as the originals from the first two. Not sure what happened there. This one is not worth the time, but if you already found the others not fun than this is not tolerable.

I can't say this is as good as the original because it feels like a step down, but I always enjoyed this one the most growing up and that still holds true. It doesn't take itself seriously at all, but still retains what makes TMNT fun (unlike number 3). There are times when they take the silliness too far, but overall it is pretty enjoyable and kids will most certainly love it. It has a special charm that is unexplainable to me.

They absolutely nail the tight bond between father and sons with the turtles and Splinter. The action sequences are fun to watch even though they are relatively simple because of the limitations of the puppets. I have a soft spot for this film because I loved it when I was a kid. I sat down and rewatched it with the same giddiness I had as a child and it made me feel young again. Ultimately, it's not a great film, but I enjoy it and if you grew up on it I'm sure it holds a special place for you too.
