age 18+
The Girl is too heavily sexualized. There are also a lot of inapropriate jokes. The models of turtles and anthrophomic creatures don't look very good and the Plot is boring

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
age 13+

This film doesn't exist

This is the biggest insult to the TMNT fandom, Next Mutation is more enjoyable than this trash. If I could I would give -200 stars because it's so terrible. The Turtles are ugly, April is the main focus because why make a movie about the title characters. And I have not forgotten how Bay was going to make the Turtles aliens. I would rather watch TMNT 3 over this because those Turtles look a thousand times better than these.
