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]

“..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]

CHRISTIAN MINGLE :

“..a sweet romantic comedy that is faith friendly..”
by Donna Rolfe [The Dove Foundation]

MALL :

“.."Mall" is definitely worth a look..”
by Billy Tatum [AXS]

DARK WAS THE NIGHT :

“.."Dark Was the Night" doesn't break the monster movie mold, but does fill it to capacity with eerie atmosphere and creeping chills elevated by terrific acting..”
by Ian Sedensky [Culture Crypt]

BIG DRIVER :

“..if you do enjoy the once in a while thriller, and like to see a story that pushes you to think, then Big Driver is for you..”
by Nathan M Rose [FlickDirect]

SUMMER OF BLOOD :

“..Summer of Blood tries very hard to be cool, but instead comes off as strained and aloof, with a number of satiric targets it could have aimed for but just bypasses altogether..”
by Drew Taylor [The Playlist]

THE CULTURE HIGH :

“..an amateurish hand is in the term-paper-like voice-over narration and the inclusion of underqualified talking heads..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

RUDDERLESS :

“.."Rudderless" is a competent, well-acted melodrama, yet in scope and ambition it has the modest and serviceable scale of the small, not silver, screen..”
by Michael O'Sullivan [Washington Post]

YOUNG ONES :

“..unfortunately this film is equally dusty, with a mishmash of ideas and self-conscious execution..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

BIRDMAN :

“..Keaton's terrific, off-kilter performance is just one of several in this dizzying, high-energy movie. A must-see..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

HOUSEBOUND :

“..creepy, silly, inventive, darkly funny and, at one point, mind-blowingly bloody..”
by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]
