Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles


Cinema review: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Mon, Oct 20, 2014

Everyone who grew up in the nineties remembers the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Turtles, like Pogs, were certainly part of my childhood. In the world we live in of remakes, reboots, and sequels I cannot believe it has taken this long for a new live action Ninja Turtles picture (there was a animated movie TMNT in 2007 that went straight to DVD). The original movies from the early 90s were massive successes, in fact when the first film came out in 1990 it was the second highest grossing indie movie of all time. Sadly these films have not aged well which leaves the franchise ripe for a reboot. Unfortunately for us, producer Michael Bay has got his hands on the project and if his treatment of the Transformers franchise is anything to go by this will not end well.
