Bruce Ingram at the Chicago Sun-Times, gave it a 63 score, stating: “[A] basically brainless but intermittently adrenalizing, mostly-just-for-kids reboot.” Kyle Anderson at Entertainment Weekly, gave it a 58 score. He said: “Turtles is head-and-shell better than “Transformers.” Cowabunga?”
Justin Lowe at The Hollywood Reporter, gave it a 50 grade, saying: “The castmembers portraying Splinter and the turtles achieve a persuasive level of realism that was never possible with the elaborate puppetry required for the original film series and adequately fulfill expectations for their characters.”
Nicolas Rapold from the The New York Times, gave it a 40 score. He stated: “A certain kind of discipline and experience is at work here: It’s no accident that the action and dialogue seem blandly cartoonish, as if the moviemakers wanted to keep everything easy for all ages to follow.”
Mark Olsen over at the Los Angeles Times, gave it a 40 score as well, stating: “Not out-and-out terrible enough to be completely dismissed, while also not particularly memorable either, perhaps the truest summation of the film is to say simply that the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a movie that exists.”Read More..>>
