Consensus: Neither entertaining enough to recommend nor remarkably awful, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles may bear the distinction of being the dullest movie ever made about talking bipedal reptiles.

Peter Travers
Rolling Stone

In one way, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a triumph for producer Michael Bay in that it is equally as godawful as his Transformers: Age of Extinction and a hit nonetheless.

It's pretty much business as usual: one personality trait per turtle (with the most screen time for party-dude Michelangelo), lots of wisecracks, plenty of thin-crust product placement (Pizza Hut this time around), and even a last-minute cowabunga.

How can you pack in so many curiously questionable pop culture figures into a franchise based on nothing more than beloved (?) 1980's nostalgia?

It's essentially a Transformers movie - a Michael Bay production complete with mass destruction, urban panic, white-hot lighting, inane quips, product placement, explosions and, well, Megan Fox.

Turtles fans might have been looking for their own Avengers. They get Alvin and the Chipmunks on performance enhancers and mass-market pizza instead. In Hollywood, history repeats first as farce, then as marketing.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles feels like a Bay Combo, a collection of ideas we've already seen.

I had to draw on my own ninja training and reflect intensively on the transitory nature of all phenomena, just to fend off the profound yearning for death.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles doesn't so much provide brainless enjoyment as it pummels the viewer into submission. "Shell-shocked" is a reasonable description of the experience.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles could be worse, which - in a summer of Transformers and Behaving Badly - says nothing.

Aside from the occasional turtle-humor, this live-adaptation is mediocre at best. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turltes' disarray origins strays away die-hard fans… More

Nothing that made the original films (minus the third) fun and enjoyable was retained in this new revision of the series. Missing is the goofball humor, cheesy… More

I had low expectations for this movie, it turned out not to be as bad as I first thought. An average and clichà (C)d action flick that may leave you quaking in… More

Jonathan Liebesman dishes out the plain old cheese pizza in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Sliding in at a mere 90 minutes, it is a quick viewing. Aside from a… More

I went in with low expectations and was still stunned by how bad the film was. It's not particularly entertaining on any level and all the characters have… More
