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]

MAPS TO THE STARS :

“..looks sharp but, in the end, comes off more like a prank than a coherent take on 21st century Hollywood, even if there are crumbs of truth and wit scattered throughout it..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

ANIMAL :

“..Animal feels like every other standard creature feature..”
by Patrick Cooper [Bloody Disgusting]

HOT TUB TIME MACHINE 2 :

“..there are plenty of ways to spend your time and money, but "Hot Tub Time Machine 2" shouldn't be one of them..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]

WILD CANARIES :

“..in spite of the constant activity, there's not a whole lot going on, but it's still a fun place to visit..”
by Eric Kohn [indieWIRE]

ALL THE WILDERNESS :

“..in spite of the tatty "coming of age" familiarity, Johnson's vision seems fresh and vibrant..”
by Pete Vonder Haar [Village Voice]

DIGGING UP THE MARROW :

“..a playfully self-reflexive exercise whose endless in-jokes will best be appreciated by only the most ardent genre aficionados..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

KOBE BRYANT'S MUSE :

“..certainly timely, if also largely whitewashed - a star-approved, produced and guided tour that sacrifices editorial perspective for up-close-and-personal access..”
by Brian Lowry [Variety]

THE SECOND BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL :

“..busier but also blander and duller than its predecessor..”
by Leslie Felperin [Hollywood Reporter]

THE DUFF :

“..director Ari Sandel takes many pages from Hughes' playbook, but the results here are far less satisfying..”
by Steven Bryan [Examiner]

MCFARLAND, USA :

“..a feel-good movie that earns all those good feelings..”
by James Rocchi [The Wrap]
