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]

MACBETH :

“..fearsomely visceral and impeccably performed, it's a brisk, bracing update, even as it remains exquisitely in period..”
by Guy Lodge [Variety]

INSIDE OUT :

“..delightfully inventive, funny and touching and, surreptitiously, a great way of helping kids get a handle on all those inexplicable feelings..”
by David Sexton [This is London]

SICARIO :

“..Villeneuve handles conventional action sequences terrifically well..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

SEA OF TREES :

“..from the cloying, ever-present score to the complete lack of narrative momentum, it all adds up to a film that's easily Van Sant's worst..”
by Oliver Lyttelton [The Playlist]

TOMORROWLAND :

“..the movie can conjure up futuristic images, but the story is nothing we haven't seen before...”
by Stephanie Merry [Washington Post]

POLTERGEIST :

“..the spirits may have been willing with Poltergeist but the movie is weak..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

WHEN MARNIE WAS THERE :

“..will make fans of the Japanese animation studio yearn for when Hayao Miyazaki was there. The now-retired maestro of the form had a sense of poetry and lyricism that's sadly missing here..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE III :

“..more depravity, more terrible acting..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

CHOCOLATE CITY :

“..a black riff on a certain stripper movie smash..”
by Roger Moore [Tribune News Service]

ALOFT :

“..the rest of it - the healer, the journalist, the falcons - is just a thick, tedious layer of frost on the window..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]
