Language was disappointing!

I was thoroughly disgusted by the language in this movie! Casey Jones called Rock Steady and BeBop sons of b....!! I could not believe that they actually said that during the film!

Too much swearing

For older kids/tweens

I watched with my 7 year old boys but didn't realize it was PG-13 until we started it. There's definitely some language in it. This will not be a movie I'll let them watch again by themselves until they're older. It's geared more to tweens/teenagers. The Kraang enemy is creepy. The 4 ninja turtle brothers in the movie talk alot about the importance of team work.
