Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

USA | 1990 | 93 min | PG

If you’re anything like me, you grew up on the TMNT franchise, either idolizing one of the four ninja turtles, or pretending that one of them was your real-life boyfriend.


So how can you not adore their first feature film that stars walking, talking animals who know kung-fu and LOVE pizza, comments greatly on bio-hazardous waste, depicts the urban environment of NYC from the sewers, pays homage to other comic book franchises (did you know that “The Foot” are a parody of “The Hand” from Daredevil?), has a soundtrack with MC Hammer, and shows just how cool hockey can be (hello, Casey Jones).
