TMNT PosterI remember buying my first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle comic book as a young kid. This was before the old television show, the art was in black and white, and it wasn’t necessarily for children. I’ve grown up with this franchise through it’s many incarnations: the first cartoon series, the first movie and it’s subsequent sequels, the toys, the TMNT rock band (yes, they traveled the country in Turtle outfits) and of course the new cartoon series (I somehow missed the live-action television show).

TMNT is yet a new revisiting of the Turtle series. If you’ve never encountered the franchise before, you may be stuck wondering, “what’s going on.” The prologue doesn’t explain much of anything, but is long enough to make you wonder how bad the film is going to be.
