5.0 out of 5 stars One Of The Most Underated Movies Of A Generation 29 Mar 2007
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, not to be confused by the 1986 cartoon series was a masterpiece of it's time. Highlighting on its more dark and edgy early comic days, this film certainly had it all. Action, comedy, thrills and spills it was packed for 90 minutes of enjoyable entertainment that on it's release sparked a media frenzy worldwide for it's violent content. Although the film was categorised as PG and certainly not aimed at the children. The story is strong and the true meaning of combat is highlighted. Their master come father Splinter trying to enlighten their teenage mind in the art of ninjitsu as a way of life, fighting the forces of evil, whist still trying to make them understand the reality that is the surface of modern day America and that their lives would always be different of that of normal average Human.

The budget was not the biggest in the world, but I think that only aids to the film. Jim Hensons workshop were involved on the animatronics and special effect which undoubtedly added to the films success. the movement of the puppets aimed with the character vocals worked a treat

The film is dark, quite edgy and at times strikes a blow. The script is clever with catchphrases and styles of the time Full or sarcasm, great action spots, fantastic martial arts scenes and an ending that surely couldn't be considered for children? You'll see when you see?

If you simply think it would be a bad remake of a cartoon, think again. This certainly is a film for the older market. Although I first saw this movie at the age of 9, 16 years later this remains one of my all time favourite moves and only now did I see the more depth in the meaning of the writing that could never have been touched on in the children's cartoon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never pay full price for late pizza! 30 Mar 2007
In my opinion, this is a great film and one of the best comic book adaptations ever. It sticks a lot more closely to the original material than the 1990's animated series did, although there are a couple of minor references to the cartoon, such as April O Neill being a news reporter and the Turtles love of pizza. The film is also much more watchable nowadays, as when it was originally released in UK cinemas (and later on VHS), almost every scene with Mikey's nunchukus was either edited or blurred out.....which is very noticeable in the fight scenes and makes a huge difference to the confrontation with Shredder at the end....but the BBFC have now seen sense and the censored footage has now been restored for the DVD.

Basically, the plot is a simple one of good versus evil and old vendettas....Shredder (a Darth Vader style bad guy, all scary mask and gruff voice) is attempting to take over New York with his clan of ninja thieves and the Ninja Turtles are out to stop him under the guidance of Splinter, a rat who's master was killed by Shredder many years before. But it is unusually dark and emotional for a film that is perceived to be aimed primarily at children. All kinds of themes are dealt with....coping with isolation from the outside world, anger, loss, and generally growing up and coming of age...and the characters are explored in a fair amount of detail and shown to be unique personalities who deal with situations in their own way. The fight scenes are also a lot of fun too, the restored scene where Mikey takes on a `fellow `chucker' is particularly amusing, as well as being a prime example of just how much the BBFC ruined the overall feel of the film by censoring it so much back in 1990.

4.0 out of 5 stars COWABUNGA! 4 May 2004
By Mattyg
I heard about this region 1 dvd about 6 months ago, been a guy who grew up watching the cut version on a regular basis, i was very intrigued to buy it just to see what they cut out of it in the early 90's.
When the film came to my door, i was expecting to see an extended version of that film.
What i saw was a completely different movie, not only had the uncut bits been restored into the movie, but nearly every single frame of film was different, this was due to BBFC super-inposing on what was seen at the time (offensive pictures) michaelangelo nun-chuku's, which were taken out in every frame.
Fantastic dvd 14 years on from it's original release.
The only down side is that the region 2 dvd has a better picture quality than that of the region 1 version.

5.0 out of 5 stars TURTLEY AWESOME DUDE!!! 22 Mar 2008
This is a GREAT MOVIE. The four turtle brothers certainly gave it their best in this first installment of the TMNT movie saga. The plot is realistic (well, for a movie that has giant mutated turtles in it), and is full of fantastic action sequences. I've spotted a few mistakes in the movie, but they aren't that noticeably. The costumes were pretty good for its time, and the puppet work was well done. The villain: Shredder was cool, and he reminds me of Darth Vader at times.
All in all this was a brilliant movie and I would definately reccomend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars TURTLE POWER!!! 21 July 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I dare you not to like this movie, l even dare you to say negative things about it?? you can't you know why because it's "BOSSANOVA" dude!!! l haven't seen this movie since l was a kid and my perspective of it was very memorable from the scenes the turtles reveal themselves, the entrance of villain Shredder and the exciting final fight on the rooftop. Seeing this movie today is like having an injection of nostalgia. No matter how corny the jokes are or how stereotypical the dialogue is this film is awesome.

This movie is a perfect blend of the comics and the cartoon TV series as the whole atmosphere of the movie is dark and surrounded by corruption and crime (like Tim burton's BATMAN) but the turtles have the charm of the Cartoon series and they both work really well but it's also a great example of the 90s generation. For a movie done with puppetry suits they actually work well, Splinter looks absolutely awesome and the fight choreography in the battle scenes are well put together.The actors play their characters perfectly, sure their not gonna get awards for it but they do a swell job.

Bottom line this movie is so underrated it puts most modern comic-book movies to shame and that includes your precious Dark Knight. Why because it's funny, well executed, faithful and most of all it's Entertaining. Now go watch this classic!!!
