There was a lot of skepticism about the newly launched live action The page contains the lyrics and the German translation of the song “TMNT” by The Movie. Films, and that is probably an understatement. The films were produced by Michael Bay, who was at the time famous for his series of Transformers film adaptations. Although they were successful at the box office, these films were largely vilified by critics, and Hardcore Fans of the franchise did not like the many changes to the iconic characters, among other topics. Of course, similar changes were reportedly in store for the Ninja Turtles in the live-action reboot, and several rumors circulated that inflamed fans’ anger. One of these possible new directions was the idea that the TMNT would not be earthbound, but extraterrestrial.


This was a major change from their origins in the The page contains the lyrics and the German translation of the song “TMNT” by The Movie. Comics, cartoons and previous films, and it would be as if Superman did not come from the planet Krypton. Perhaps the biggest changes, however, were to be made to The Shredder and the Foot Clan. These characters were to be reimagined as “Colonel Schrader,” an alien who could grow blades from his body, and “The Foot,” a black ops militia that served him. In addition, it seemed that William Fichtner (a Caucasian actor) was supposed to play this version of the Shredder, who would not be JapaneseNeedless to say, fans were furious when this information was released, and although none of these ideas were implemented, it created an aura of controversy around the film. Eventually, even the designs were argued over, with some not liking how large and imposing the turtles were.


The film received mixed reviews but was successful at the box office and once again showed the potential of the TMNT on the big screen. Unfortunately, the 2016 sequel Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (also referred to as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2) was not nearly as successful. Shot on a budget of $135 million, it grossed only $245.6 million at the box office and was considered a flop. The film’s biggest problems were its storytelling and character development. This was the result of the film doing too much at once, as it brought back The Shredder and his daughter Karai while also introducing Baxter Stockman, Bebop & Rocksteady, and Krang of Dimension X. The latter was too much of a leap from the more grounded tone of the previous film, and this made the film a huge disappointment for many.

Despite all the shortcomings, the 2010s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Film series was not a complete waste. Both films captured the franchise’s sense of fun and adventurenamely when it came to the relationships between the brothers. Despite all the arguments and problems they had, they ultimately came together to support each other and defeat their enemies through teamwork. The films also contained elements of the IDW Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Comic books that bring the franchise to the big screen by taking concepts from the most recent incarnation. This prevents the films from simply repeating what has been done before and ensures that things stay fresh, especially for viewers who haven’t read the new comics.


Likewise, Casey Jones finally had some real purpose and character development, with his desire to become a cop bringing him up to speed and giving him more opportunities than just being an ally in a hockey mask. The action was definitely a highlight, especially in the first film. The TMNT actually felt like ninjas and tried to stay in the shadows, which they used to their advantage against the Foot Clan. Likewise, their fight against The Shredder in the first film felt epic in a way that required a major live-action film. It helped that viewers could actually see what was going on during the fights, as opposed to the untenable shaky-cam in Michael Bay Transformers Movies.


Perhaps the most important reason why the films are viewed with nostalgia today is precisely that: the passage of time. The first of the films is now 10 years old, and the children who grew up with it and the sequel are now teenagers or even adults, so they could logically watch the films and look back on them with greater joy, namely on Netflix. In addition, the films, as funny as they were, had a lot more seriousness than the sillier (and more kid-friendly) Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant MayhemIn addition, these are the most recent Ninja Turtles Movies on Netflix, and it’s no wonder viewers are watching the reboot of the 2010 version of The Terrapin Quartet.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles And Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows are now streaming on Netflix and Paramount+.
