Consensus: TMNT's art direction is splendid, but the plot is non-existent and the dialogue lacks the irony and goofy wit of the earlier TMNT movies.

Tasha Robinson

...while the visuals are terrific, the plot is a distracting clunker that feels like it was written one line at a time by a bunch of overexcited fan-board commentators playing a round-robin storytelling game.

I guess if you read the comic strip and you played the video games and you watched the TV show and dug the earlier movies, you'll dig this new version. For me, I didn't do any of that stuff.

Whenever the amphibians are in action, the film finds a rhythm that mixes punk graphic cool and merch-friendly visuals.

Stephen Garrett
Time Out

What remains is intensely numbing action scenes, poor plot machinations and joyless character sketches all rendered in exquisitely cold CGI.

It takes more than an awkward title attempting to sound cool to overcome its mundane plot and silly dialogue.

Almost every good scene in TMNT is an action sequence and a lot of time and thought has been put into them. So much in fact that none seems to have been spared for the story or any of the other characters.

A passable brand rebooting exercise that will impress younger kids even if it doesn't satisfy older fans.

Worst of all is the lack of genuine laughs. Writer-director Kevin Munroe has apparently forgotten that the Ninja Turtle phenomenon started as rib-nudging parody.

The characters were no longer constrained by rubber suits or the laws of physics.

Not bad, my daughter loves it and way better than the live action versions. The CGI in this is just awesome. Especially on blu ray.

I really enjoyed this one. I was a massive turtles fan as a kid and I think this was a pretty good update. It's not perfect, but thankfully it's not… More
