Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014)

Last Sunday, Danny and I went to a movie date.
Watched one of our same childhood favourite — Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles a.k.a TMNT 2014.
Darkness has settled over New York City as Shredder and his evil Foot Clan have an iron grip on everything from the police to the politicians. The future is grim until four unlikely outcast brothers rise from the sewers and discover their destiny as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The Turtles must work with fearless reporter April O’Neil and her cameraman Vern Fenwick to save the city and unravel Shredder’s diabolical plan.

I read plenty of reviews saying it is suck TMNT franchise;
no plot, meaningless, not a original story of it etc.
But, for me, I think every movie,
although it is franchise, it has its own story.
Nevertheless, I won’t say it is a very good film too.

Normally, the villain in movie wanted to take control of a city or the world,
their point of view is to make a “better” or wonderful city of their own.
But, I think Shredder in TMNT 2014 think differently;
no other visionary thought, but he just wanted to own the world.
Whilst, Eric Sack who supposed to work for Shredder, portrayed he is the boss of Shredder.
For me, the character of Shredder in TMNT 2014 is under-developed.

How about the turtles?
With the CGI technology, no doubt, the visual is better than the past.
However, it doesn’t look like a teen.
They are super huge!
Personally feel the core of TMNT 2014 isn’t on the ninja turtles,
yet, April O’Neil, who was their host.
I kinda like it began with the comic scene,
yet, sooner when it is in the real life scene,
the focus is not much on the turtles.
Overall, to certain extend, TMNT 2014 is still entertaining the audiences.
However, I didn’t think it is  better version than the past franchises.
The cartoon version have a better story than it.

Rating: 2/5


  1. I still remember the original version of this movie although I am sure the special effects are far more advanced now ! 🙂
    Shame it did not live up to your expectations.

  2. It seems that you molded your review on what you perceived as a normal movie watcher with much thought as to entertain your passion. A very awesome movie review.

  3. I did not like the way they messed with the origins of the turtles in this version. I did like the elevator scene — best scene in the whole film!

  4. I wasn’t feeling this Movie at all! I have no idea why they did a re-make at this time .. great review but the movie wasn’t all that

  5. I think the adaptation is a good one though since it’s now retelling the story to a different generation so it will take time to get used to the mean green fighting machines.

  6. I had decided not to watch this movie after all the bad reviews I had read about it but after reading what u wrote, I think it deserves a watch…

  7. Nevertheless the plot and the lack of meaningful story, Megan Fox is the most beautiful reporter of all time, from all the versions. The turtles look funny, not to say ridiculous though, lol

  8. I have heard of the turtles and glad they are doing well but doubt I will be seeing the movie anytime soon…maybe on a plane. But what do I know; it’s the biggest grossing movie of the year I think so some is doing something right 🙂
