Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is irresistible, critics say

MOVIE NEWS – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Chaos is the sixth Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie in the franchise’s four-decade history, and critics unanimously agree that it’s by far the best.


The judges say that the story of young reptiles struggling for social acceptance has never been so funny, exciting and visually captivating. The reason for this is mainly attributed to the fact that the production successfully amalgamated the energies of two creative forces. In the field of animation, those who made the Oscar-nominated The Mitchells Against the Machines, an action comedy soaked in absurd humor two years ago, with director Jeff Rowe at the helm. In it, a typical American dysfunctional family fights against the rebellious robots, but in reality, their biggest problem is generational antagonisms that cause a rift between children and parents. The other creative brain trust of the new ninjas is the duo Seth Rogen-Evan Goldberg, who are also unbeatable in comedy, because no one can sing about the torments of adolescence more entertainingly than them (Superbad – or why sex is cute).

“I have to say, this turtle cinema is irresistible,” writes Pete Hammond of Deadline Hollywood Daily.

Critics point out that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is really presents the world of teenagers to teenagers, while the older age group is not bored either. “These turtles grew up on social media, constantly making memes and watching twerking videos on TikTok. There are a bunch of scenes that seriously made me feel old and out of date,” writes Shakefire’s Matt Rodriguez.

The critical portal RottenTomatoes points out that the opus can bring great pleasure to old fans as much as to uninitiated viewers, meaning that the creators belonging to the former group have achieved their set goal. The film is at 96 percent on RT.

This time, the mentor of the turtles, Mester Szecska, the mutant rat, was also redefined. “Now Szekska is no longer the old, wise master drawn from ancient samurai stories, as in the previous versions, but a worried helicopter parent who overthinks everything unnecessarily, because he was traumatized by his negative experiences with people,” said Kristy Puchko from Mashable. He also points out that during the fast-paced action, the viewer is often scratching his head, so it may happen that he loses the thread, but there is nothing fraudulent about it, since the title of the film correctly states the definition: chaos.

Another virtue of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is that it visually resembles the raw and vibrant world of underground comics – because that’s how it started at the time, on a paper basis the career of armored justices. The film returns to the spectacle of classic animation, rejecting the photorealistic representation that is in vogue today, which creates a universe that seems painfully real, as if the goal is not to transport the viewer to a never-before-seen fantasy world.
