Do you like karate, adventure or turtles? Well then, Cowabunga Dudes!, this film is one you'll want to see. A blast from the past, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Original Movie, which was adapted from comic books of the same name. This is classic fun, family film, directed by Steve Barron (Merlin and Coneheads), is about four humanoid turtles: Raphael (voiced by Josh Pais), Michaelangelo (voiced by Robbie Rist), Leonardo (voiced by Brian Tochi) and Donatello (voiced by Corey Feldman), who become mutanized and learn ninja skills from their Master, Splinter (voiced by Kevin Clash), who is a humanoid rat. These ninja turtles go on a mission to save their master and stop a gang called "The Foot Clan", who is trying to take over the world. These pizza eating, crime fighting turtles will do whatever it takes to save their master and this leads to a lot of exciting action. My favorite characters are Master Splinter and Michaelangelo. I like Splinter because he is very strong and wise and he teaches the turtles many lessons in addition to their ninja skills. I like Michaelangelo, because he was the funniest of the four turtles and he made me laugh a lot during this movie. My favorite scene is when the turtles learn their word, pizza. It's funny watching these little turtles walking around the sewer tunnels where they try pizza for the first time and say "pizza". It's an adorable scene. The location of this film is mainly the sewers and streets of New York City. This anthropomorphic film takes you on a journey with these walking, talking turtles and though their costumes are not realistic in this day and age (the movie was made in 1990), it's still a fun film to sit and watch with your family. I recommend this film for all kids up to the age of 13, though some older kids may find the film a bit too corny. I didn't expect a film with such action filled martial arts scenes, to be funny as well, but this film does both. I rate this film 4 out of 5 stars because even as it's a 20 + year old movie, the martial arts scenes were action packed and the movie teaches good lessons to younger kids.
