TMNT...

"It's Winters." "Actually, it looks more like fall. Get it?"

I am a huge Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan. Growing up, I had all of the action figures. I watched the cartoon religiously. I even bought the soundtrack to the second movie. Editor's Note: I did this so that I could have the Vanilla Ice song, Ninja Rap. So, of course, I had to see this movie. I had planned to take some students with me, but that didn't work out. Editor's Note: I was going to take some kids so that I would have a cover story for why a 26 year old dude would be seeing a kids' movie. So I went with Jarred.

TMNT
Running Time:
1 hr 30 mins.
Directed By: Kevin Munroe
Starring: Chris Evans, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Mako, Patrick Stewart

This movie was good. There were times (like the rooftop fight between Leonardo and Raphael) that the visuals were awesome. It had a couple of pretty good one-liners. The voice work was excellant. But, the story left much to be desired.

And so, to TMNT, I give the honor of being awarded a certified 2 1/2 Yarmulke™ rating.


Fun for kids and fans, but for everybody else; go rent the first live action movie...

You should have called me! I totally wanted to go and none of my friends wanted to see it! When TMNT2 comes out--I'll meet you there!

i thought this started out as a 3 yarmulke(tm) rating....

It did. But, upon further evaluation, I changed it. I was using 3 yarmulkes as the average. THen I realized half of 5 was 2.5, not 3.
