The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie DVD Review and Giveaway

In 2014 the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles had a bit of a makeover. They still eat pizza and they still wear bandanas, but there's something decidedly different about them. They're meaner and not so cute. Life since 1987 has hardened them, and you can see that in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie.

We could see the change coming when we reviewed the Turtle Van Takedown LEGO set.

Not quite so cute, but as it turns out from watching the movie, they're still cute enough, and not as scary as first sight would have you believe. They're certainly more like actual mutant turtles might look, more like the original comic book, and have kept all of the humour and personality - plus lots more.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie review

The movie sees Leonardo very much as the big bad leader of the turtles. Donatello is now taking a techy geek role, Raphael's a bit more 'devil may care' and Michaelangelo is the joker of the family - who does seem to behave like the 'slapstick little brother they had to bring along' sometimes.

I've liked the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for a long time, I took my little brother to see the movie 1990, and now I'm watching the remake with my own youngest children, and it stands up well. It's very different, very much more of the modern superhero style with huge sets and great expense, and it's entertaining to young and older alike.
