These crime fighting turtles kept us on the edge of our seat as they battled Shredder and his evil Foot Clan. Based on the original comic book by Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman , these Ninjas have been updated for today’s generation while still maintaining the appeal and likeability of the original characters. April O’Neil, an ambitious reporter played by Megan Fox, and Vern Fenwick, a cameraman with a crush played by Will Arnett, join the Ninja Turtles as they attempt to save New York.

The film shares the story of how the Turtles arrived in the sewers and came to be Ninjas. These teen Ninja Turtles, named after Renaissance artists, each have a unique personality. Leonardo is the oldest and most responsible of the brothers. He’s the calm Zen Master of the Turtles. Raphael is the rebel of the group with fierce Ninja weaponry skills. Though he is a bit of a bad-boy, he’s also extremely loyal to his brothers. Michaelangelo is the free-spirit surfer type and the youngest of the brothers. He’s fun-loving and very likeable. Donatello is the tech savvy turtle, with the all the high-tech gadgets. He’s the smartest of the group. Today’s kids will love these characters and find them very relatable in today’s world.
