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]

STUNG :

“..director Benni Diez tries for schlock shocks in this giant-bug flick. Sadly, what's left out here is the fun..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

THE DEATH OF SUPERMAN LIVES: WHAT HAPPENED? :

“..the movie is fun to watch, even if it isn't always fully satisfying. Too much time is spent depicting all the designs for the film that were ultimately scotched..”
by Stephen Farber [Hollywood Reporter]

JACKIE & RYAN :

“..a homey but surprisingly enjoyable ride through honest old mid-America..”
by Deborah Young [Hollywood Reporter]

AMY :

“..a tender, intimate, nuanced portrait of a pop idol with an appetite for destruction..”
by Stephen Dalton [Hollywood Reporter]

MALA MALA :

“..Mala Mala has no kinship to the rawness, if not ugliness, of Jennie Livingston's classic documentary, whose camera worked more like a curious open pore, and less like a hagiographic machine..”
by Diego Costa [Slant Magazine]

LARRY KRAMER IN LOVE AND ANGER :

“..the film follows the familiar narrative, which is neatly compressed in the title..”
by Matthew Gilbert [Boston Globe]

MAGIC MIKE XXL :

“..as Magic Mike XXL closes with fireworks and Tatum's winning smile, the film is obviously satisfied that it has overturned some mired tropes - and frankly, so are we..”
by Stacey May Fowles [Globe and Mail]

TERMINATOR GENISYS :

“..a bad time-travel movie..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

THE TALE OF TALES :

“..a dreamy, fresh take on the kind of dark and gory yarns that have come down to us from the Brothers Grimm and Charles Perrault, only here they're pleasingly new and unfamiliar..”
by Deborah Young [Hollywood Reporter]

PERFECT HIGH :

“..it's neither sufficiently impressive on its own merits to be a quality film, nor is it deliciously trashy enough to make for a pleasurable viewing..”
by Alex McCown [A.V. Club]
