That’s “Go Ninja, Go ninja, GO!” And it’s one of the best scenes in the movie.

I have this on DVD. It was a really good movie. It took me a few times watching it for it to really sink in that this was another movie. Remember James that at the end they hinted at the return of someone. Who do you think they ment?

I saw this movie a short while ago, and it was surprisingly good. It just had a real good balance as James already says in his review. There’s drama, humor, and more in-depth character development, but all of it seems to do its job without things getting too pretentious or over the top. As an old Turtles fan, I agree with most things said in this review, even though I really do prefer animation over live action. All in all, a movie everyone craving for some good Turtles nostalgia should see. Even the video game made of it is quite enjoyable.

Loved this movie. It wasn’t Emmy-winning gold, but it didn’t have to be. I feel like a good number of ’80s cartoon re-makes rely on the fact that they haven’t been under the public eye in a while, so they could get away with an okay plot line. And honestly, Professor X was this movie’s main bad guy–what else could you want?
Have you checked out the special features on the DVD for this new turtles movie? They team behind it openly said that it accepts the live-action movies… all except the third one :P. Pretty interesting stuff.

I got to say what a huge improvement over TMNT III that could a few years to make but well worth it.

Good stuff. I think I honestly prefer animation sometimes because with animation, you can do things that just can’t be done live action. However, when you DO have a live action film, I prefer practical effects over CG ones most of the time because for the actors its REALLY fucking hard to act scared/awed/whatever when there isn’t anything actually in front of you.
I’m getting way off topic here… this movie was a lot of fun, I enjoyed it,

I’m more of an In-between Turtle fan. I grew up watching the Live action movies and I watched Reruns of the original show back in the 90s. I also had a couple of toys and TMNT coloring books, so you could say I kinda grew up with the classic series, but it wasn’t until I was in my teens that the newer TMNT series aired and I really got hooked. I just thought it was awesome to finally see a Turtle show that wasn’t random reruns I happen to catch on TV. I stopped watching it after it entered a small hiatus in between one of the seasons and a couple of years later I saw the trailer for this. I thought it was going to be complete shit so I passed on it. Bad mistake, I decided to rent it when it was released on DVD and ended up loving the damn thing for the exact reasons that James mentioned in his review. I felt like I was watching part of the old show/movies I saw in the 90s while at the same time It was a continuation of the new show that I loved watching in my Teens… I really need to get a copy of flick

Goddammit man! I’m european, live in Norway and I knowstuff about the Turtles which, appearantly, you do not.. here it goes.. What we call Teenage Mutant HERO Turtles is ofcourse stil called Ninja in america, but by calling the cartoons Hero and the live action movies and stories Ninja it is made clear that there is a difference between them. In the cartoons (hero) the footclan are robots. It is for a young audience, no one get’s killed and we have Bebop and Rocksteady as moron henchmen and then you have the technodrome and Krang just to make kids go wow. Right? Now, the more mature version of the Turtles, the Ninja Turtles, doesn’t feature Krang. That would just be silly. 🙂
I read all the Turtle comics that was published here in Norway, still have them and read them from time to time. Some readers did ask why Krand wasn’t in the movies and if he’d ever turn up and based upon the “visions” (there has got to be another word..) from Eastman and Laird. . .Get it. . . ? I strongly agree that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III was and is utter crap and I did get somewhat reminded of it when I saw the scepter in the 2007 movie, but didn’t you notice the refference to Shredder not beeing dead? 🙂

This movie was way better than i had expected it to be. I was a hardcore fan as a kid and any deviation from that old animated series got under my skin but this movie pulled it off. I honestly cant believe they didnt have a TMNT 2. I know Michael Bay is working on a new movie and its about the turtles being aliens..and it sounds awful. Just make a new TMNT in CGI it was awesome, it made alot of money and people loved it. Why bring the series back and then leave it hanging again?

I kind’ve hated how this turned out. I thought it looked “okay” when I saw it in theaters. Then we queue to Raph trying to be live action movie Raph, which annoyed me. Generally, when there’s a brand new turtles franchise, Raph is typically different in some way. But it’s like they tried to copy him from the live action movies.
