What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Zane Henry A solid Saturday afternoon's entertainment.
Michael Ordona Turtles big on style, but no substance.
|Mail & Guardian|

Barry Ronge It is, I fear, just an expensive marketing ploy to put the TMNT back in the public eye so that they can sell newly designed merchandise and computer games.
Megan Kakora Ultimately, TMNT isn't the best animated spin on a beloved classic. But watch it for its distinctive Turtle humour and departure from the real world.
Jamie Russell You can't keep a good turtle down.
Annlee Ellingson The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles raise ‘shell’ in serviceable CGI
Jason Anderson Though the property's novelty value is long gone and the film's storytelling is uninvolving, the exceptionally slick and striking action sequences will impress your inner 12-year-old.
Feeling more like the latest episode of a TV show than a big-screen flick, TMNT delivers an appropriate life lesson (teamwork wins the battle) like its race-based predecessor (slow and steady wins the race), but not enough in terms of engaging story or characters.
Tomatometer Lacks the irony and goofy wit of the earlier TMNT movies.
