Rating: 6/10 -- The unapologetically hokey humor and dialogue and characters have their charms for sheer late-'80s kitsch value. Full Review

Rating: 2/4 -- Ninja Turtles is cluttered and flashy. In terms of plot, there's not much flesh on its bones. Full Review

Rating: 1/5 -- What troubles me about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is that it's basically an exploitation movie aimed at young children. Full Review

As a movie, Ninja Turtles would make a better cereal. It looks like it needs a little milk and mother-wit poured over it, something to make it snap, crackle and pop. Full Review

Despite brisk direction by Steve Barron, plus unbridled energy and fine special effects, an overt glorification of violence is still at the crux of this stunt film. Full Review

A movie that displays two traits nobody would ever associate with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: It is grim and it is no fun. Full Review

Product Description:

Splinter, the rat ninja master is kidnapped by the evil Shredder and his gang of hoodlums. The green teens with the help of an ambitious reporter embark on a perilous journey through the city streets and sewers to save him.

Plot Synopsis:

A live-action version of the popular animated TV series for kids. Due to radiation exposure, the four turtles have mutated into teenagers; now, they live in the New York City sewers, where they eat pizza, talk jive, and learn the tricks of a ninja from their guru, Splinter the Rat.
When a group of juvenile delinquents called the Foot Gang start wreaking havoc in the city, our heroes on the half-shell join forces with an intrepid girl reporter to put an end to the gang's evil ways.
