As a kid growing up, I loved the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon. Like a lot of people, it was my introduction to the Turtles. Since then I’ve played with the toys, read some of the comic books and, of course, watched the movies.
I like the original Turtles movie, even though it doesn’t have too much of a nostalgia effect on me. Outside of that, the movies have been kind of hit-and-miss. I do enjoy the newer movies produced by Michael Bay. They’re kind of a guilty pleasure for me, mostly due to them being like the cartoon.
Outside of that, I don’t care for many of the other movies. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem is the newest movie and, arguably, one of the worst yet. The only one I dislike more is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III. I wasn’t going to watch this movie after I heard of the typical current-year changes they’ve made. However, curiosity got the best of me.
I can’t blame Hollywood completely. I mean, that’s what they do, especially these days. They take a franchise and drive it into the ground. In this case, I put a lot of the blame on the Turtles’ creators. They’ve always sold out and used their creation to simply make money. So it comes as no surprise that they’ve done it again here.
Anyways, check out my video review for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem, and let us know what you think in the comments.
