REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  1 of 5 [Rate It]

1.5 of 4

“..while there's nothing particularly playful, fun or clever about this big-screen Turtles re-boot, there is some good news, however feeble. The ninja turtles are more enjoyable to watch than Transformers..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
1.5 of 5

“..this movie is a cinematic flatline that shows rare blips of life only to crash back down again into nothing..”
by Germain Lussier [SlashFilm]
2 of 4

“..the main joke in "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" is the very existence of its four heroes..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
Review rate : C+

“..technically, the film is solid across the board..”
by Drew McWeeny [HitFix]
1.5 of 4

“..it just isn't pizza time, folks. There's not even a decent "Cowabunga!" in the movie, and if you can't rouse yourself to get that right, how can there be any hope for the rest of the picture?..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
2 of 5

“..if you can see them through the murky cinematography-and when you find yourself aching for more scenes with bad-guy William Fichtner, there's a serious problem. The film is for all those painfully postironic teenage boys who don't want to ogle Megan Fox..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]
1 of 4

“..all the lightheartedness has been drained out of the technologically sophisticated reboot..”
by Soren Andersen [Seattle Times]
“.."Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" comes to the summer blockbuster season like an ugly creature someone left at a pet store..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

THE IMITATION GAME :

“..its various riffs on codes, whether moral, sexual, societal or German, are plain to see rather than enigmatic or enlightening. Luckily it's all anchored in a storming performance from Cumberbatch..”
by Dave Calhoun [Time Out London]

PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR :

“..a frantic, peppy, in-your-face slice of irreverent toon action..”
by Geoff Berkshire [Variety]

HORRIBLE BOSSES 2 :

“..good for a few laughs, but not much more..”
by Justin Lowe [Hollywood Reporter]

THE SEARCH :

“..the film as a whole is tepid and familiar enough that it's hard to even find much to salvage in the acting..”
by Oliver Lyttelton [The Playlist]

RISE OF THE LEGEND :

“..a slick, polished and entertaining reboot of a folk legend..”
by Elizabeth Kerr [Hollywood Reporter]

FOOD CHAINS :

“..Rawal takes a compassionate but dry approach that suggests he's focused on making a call to arms, not art. The best documentaries manage to be both..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]

SEASONS OF LOVE :

“.."Seasons of Love" is a tedious love story that doesn't have the drama nor excitement of even ten minutes on the F train..”
by Monique A. Williams [Shadow and Act]

A ROYAL CHRISTMAS :

“.."A Royal Christmas" may not be the brightest bulb on the tree, if only because the story is so underpowered by original ideas..”
by Nancy DeWolf Smith [Wall Street Journal]

HELLO LADIES: THE MOVIE :

“..as a romantic comedy that stands on its own, Hello Ladies: The Movie hits every objective. It's a structurally sound movie, which may sound like an insult but simply means that it's not just a stretched out episode of Hello Ladies..”
by LaToya Ferguson [A.V. Club]

LATE PHASES :

“..Late Phases fails to deliver either shocks or real drama..”
by Katie Rife [A.V. Club]
