Let's just call this film what it really is, 'The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles On Steroids'. Any endearing qualities that made up the 'original' Turtles are conspicuously absent. CGI isn't a substitute for a script that reeks of dullness. The 'coolness factor' that was such an integral part of their basic personalities is woefully missing. I would have preferred watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoons on television than this sad reboot. The target audience of young children may find it somewhat entertaining. Parents who grew up with the 'real' turtles will be sorely disappointed. They'll probably wish they had taken their kids out for pizza instead. Apologies to Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael, and Donatello, there's no 'Cowabunga' here Dudes !!
