    If you are looking for the classic TMNT story and characterization... this ain't that. This is an even more wildly different take on the Turtle heroes that any we have seen before.

This movie is virtually nothing BUT brave artistic choices that are bound to leave some viewers frustrated or annoyed, but the creators went for it anyway. There are swaths of dialogue with characters frantically talking over each other, and you can't understand a damn thing. Another bold, potentially audience-alienating choice this film made and just pulled off.…
