Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Movie ★★½ 1990 (PG)

Four sewer-dwelling turtles that have turned into warrior ninja mutants due to radiation exposure take it upon themselves to rid the city of crime and pizza. Aided by a television reporter and their ninja master, Splinter the Rat, the turtles encounter several obstacles, including the evil warlord Shredder. A most excellent live-action version of the popular comic book characters which will hold the kids' interest. Much head-kicking and ribcrunching action as Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, and Michelangelo fight for the rights of pre-adolescents everywhere. Combines real actors with Jim Henson creatures. 95m/C VHS, DVD . Judith Hoag, Elias Koteas; D: Steven Barron; W: Todd W. Langen; C: John Fenner; M: John Du Prez; V: Robbie (Reist) Rist, Corey Feldman, Brian Tochi, Kevin Clash, David McCharen.
