TMNT ★★★½

I was a huge fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles when I was younger, and I am happy to say that this stylishly animated film turned out to be a positive and pleasant reunion with some childhood friends. "TMNT" is engaging and entertaining; the voice acting is great, the music effective. Thankfully, the film’s tone is quite dark rather than campy, and the characters are complex rather than two-dimensional. I also appreciate the references to previous incarnations of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Cowabunga!
