The original trilogy!!!
on 27 June 2014
As I'm nearly 24, same age as the first film. These were the first three films I can remember in my toddler years.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990)
New York City, 1990. The NYPD can't trace the high rate criminals called, "The Foot". They're stealthy ninjas committing crime and recruiting teens everywhere. Their leader called the Shredder wants to search and stop the creatures known as the four turtles from disrupting his plans of dominating crime all over New York. As Splinter (the turtles's rat sensei) gets kidnapped by the foot to lure the turtles to a trap. The turtles gets assisted by the vigilante called Casey Jones and reporter April O'Neil.
This film has a late 80's early 90's nostalgia and has a sort of noir feeling. In my opinion the best one out of the trilogy.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze (1991)
New York City, 1991. As every citizen is happily living their lives as the crime rate has gone low since the turtles kicked all the Foot clan in jail. Meanwhile at the NYC dump, the Shredder has risen and the Foot clan is reborn and this time with an ooze substance called TGRI. The substance is green ooze that can mutate any living thing into ten times the size and it's the same substance what created the turtles. Meanwhile the Shredder uses the ooze to create two non-stop mutants of a wolf and turtle called Tokka and Razor. The turtles must stop these creatures and once again defeat the Shredder and the Foot clan to restore peace to the New York streets again.
This film I remembered the most and this one is not as noir as the first one and Vanilla Ice made a guest cameo with a great single.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III (1993)
New York City, 1993. As the turtles have been seen by the New York citizens whilst defeating the Shedder, the Foot clan and his two mutants in the previous film. It's time the turtles to stay underground and leave crime fighting to the NYPD. Later April is back from her vacation and has a gift for Splinter, which is a magical sceptre that accidentally sent her to feudal Japan. The turtles have no choice but to use the sceptre to go to feudal Japan and rescue her. Later in feudal Japan is in a civil war leaving April being captured in the middle of it and taken to a castle dojo. The turtles must find a way to rescue April and to get back to their present time in New York.
This film is the least favourite of mine, the turtles look very different than the first two and this one is more comedic than the others.
