As darkness settles over New York, the people of the city need heroes -- and they're about to get them in the form of the mostly unlikely quartet of crime-fighters ever to help humankind: the spunky yet relentless reptilian force known as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Action Adventure Comedy - This is a reboot of the live action fantasy action comedy series
based on the comic book and long-running television animated series
characters. Star Megan Fox takes a back seat to the live action/CGI
fighting turtles. Although aimed at a family/kid audience, there are
some intense fight and other violent scenes that may be of concern to
parents of young children.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Below Average By making Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles come as close to the visual and audio immersion of a game, the movie's production crew gives it a chance with those kids.
Roger EbertFull Review Below Average Instead of a fun and unchallenging limp down memory lane, 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' is an energy-sapping exercise in futility that will leave you begging for less.
USA TodayFull Review Below Average While there's nothing particularly playful, fun or clever about this big-screen Turtles re-boot, there is some good news, however feeble.
NY PostFull Review Poor Tedious Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was cowabungled

The "Professional" movie critics didn't enjoy TMNT's. Luckily, most of the 97 moviegoers we polled LOVED "TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES."

Crime and fear are spreading through the streets as Shredder and his evil
Foot Clan have been flexing their iron grip on everything from the police to the
politicians. The future seems all too grim until four outcast brothers,
survivors of a scientific experiment gone wrong, rise from the sewers, and take
on their destiny as the ultimate masked vigilantes. Faced with Shredder's
diabolical plans for domination, these Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are about to
team up with fearless reporter April O'Neil (Megan Fox) and her wise-cracking
cameraman Vern Fenwick (Will Arnett) to save the citizens of New York.
