From Amazon.co.uk

From a visual standpoint, this CG feature starring the venerable '80s and '90s superheroes the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is nothing short of slam-bang; the computer animation has a scope and look that transcends both the original comics and animated series and the three live-action features that preceded it. Writer/director Kevin Munroe creates a striking animated world for the four heroes in a half-shell to live, play, and fight in, and the action sequences are occasionally breathtaking in their speed and complexity. But where TMNT stumbles is its bland plot, which picks up after the last of the live-action features with all four teen turtles in disarray, and abandons longtime villain Shredder in favor of an industrialist (well voiced by Patrick Stewart) who recruits the Foot Clan (including Karai, played by Zhang Ziyi) to revive thirteen ancient monsters to aid in his world domination scheme. It's a simple and fun story for kids, but longtime Turtles fans will miss the wry humour and smart sense of irony of the original comics (created by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird, who gets an executive producer credit here) in this storyline. Still, for most adolescent audience members, such concerns won't matter a whit in the face of the abundant action. --Paul Gaita

I think this is probably the best representation of the TMNT on the big or small screens. It's certainly the closest to the comics.

A warrior from Central America gained immortality 3,000 years ago, and his generals were turned to stone. 13 monsters were released into the world and created carnage. Fast forward to now, and the portal from which the warrior gained his immortality is going to open again and he's gathering the monsters. Meanwhile the Turtles have grown up a little. Leo is in Central America to learn how to be a good leader, Mikey's got an entertainment business, Donatello works in IT support and Raph is, well, Raph. Meanwhile April and Casey have an antiques business and the Foot Clan, sans Shredder, is selling their services to the highest bidder.

The design on the film is great. The animation clearly takes a cue from Incredibles and this works for it as you don't spend your time worrying about how the CGI figures don't look like real people. It is stylised and fun. The story is rather interesting, mixing themes of brotherhood with the big plot about the monsters and the immortal. It's fun and dramatic, with a great fight between Raph and Leo.

It also seems to follow the previous films without being slavishly continuity bound. Shredder is dead, and rather than rehash another resurrection, they wisely leave him out to let the characters grow a little.

And the action! It simply couldn't be achieved by actors in spongy suits. It's as kinetic as anime and very well coreographed.

It's not Citizen Kane, but I doubt anyone who is reading these reviews is expecting that. But I think it represents a more mature approach to the franchise that takes it slightly higher than just another opportunity to sell toys.

Thumbs up!

3.0 out of 5 stars [3.5]--Gotta love those turtles!, 23 Jun 2007
Format:DVD
I was one of the many that grew up watching Teenage mutant ninja turtles and got caught up in the whole TMNT phenomenon back in the late 80s and the early 90s. That being said, the craze escalated when the guys in green migrated to the big screen and spanned over 2 sequels, which to my opinion didn't match up the level of polish the first one was.

Yes, my family and I watched the new TMNT movie and I was, once again, one of the few or many that wasn't keen about the whole CGI transition and it just looked too kiddie cartoon to me. However, being a fan I am, I went to see the movie anyways because I always have a soft spot for my green heroes. The first live action movie still has a lot of charm to it, although it is almost 2 decades old, and it is really close to the comic book origins. I still, up to this day, have goose bumps while watching it and the one liners still makes me laugh. I realized now why the first one is such classic and the rest just fall flat - the sequels were toned down a bit and they weren't as gritty and mature as the first one was.

Now we are with TMNT - a rival attempt to the franchise- now let me say I totally enjoyed this movie and I think the transition from live to CGI was best suited for the following reasons: 1. It is easier for the viewer to be caught up in the illusion as opposed to the live actions films because we knew that the turtles were fake - guys in rubbery suits...

2. We finally grasp the sense of the turtles being ninjas - in the old films their movements were limited because of the obvious, but here they're more agile and realistic in terms of fighting.

3. Because it is CGI the imagination, scenery, fights can go wild because the sky is the limit with CG as opposed to live action..

5.0 out of 5 stars Award worthy 4 Feb 2008
By Chris Morse VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Somehow this film just passed through. I remember seeing the trailer last year but did'nt really see any reviews or comments on it. This usually means this is a turkey to be well avoided, but I saw it on sale (another bad omen) and decided to buy it for my boy. On the cover it says it's won an award for best CGI movie of 07?

The start is unusual, it makes no mention of origins, of how they came to be where they are or who they are. It starts in fact with the four Turtle brothers split, Leo is in South America, where he has been for just over a year acting as an unseen protector for a small village until he is tracked down by April. She tells Leo what the other brothers are doing, and none of them are doing that great, one doing IT support, one a kids party entertainer and Raphael a masked vigilante (unknown to all).

The main story refreshingly has nothing to do with Shredder, though the Foot Clan are involved. The story is pretty involved and a bit of a 3 way fight. You have an Eternal Champion figure who's family of 4 generals were turned to stone by his seeking immortality, he has lived through the ages ammasing wealth and power hoping to rectify his mistake. At the moment of his mistake he also unleashed 13 monsters into the world. April, along with Casey has been collecting the 4 stone statues, who the Champion reanimates, but still as stone warriors. They are tasked along with the Foot Clan to locate the 13 monsters and capture them, along the way they of course meet the Turtles.

There's enough in the story to keep you interested and guessing just what is happening. It's also voiced by some excellent actors including Sarah Michelle Gellar, Patrick Stewart and Lawrence Fishburne.

As for the mentioned CGI?
It is well worthy of the award.
