Everything Wrong With The Original Turtles Movie In 12 Minutes

Everything Wrong With The Original Turtles Movie In 12 Minutes

As the Michael Bay-produced TMNT reboot is on the horizon, Cinema Sins thought it’s time to wipe the dust off the 1990 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie and collect everything that’s wrong with it in their latest video.

The movie’s full of silly costumes and clichés, but honestly, there’s nothing wrong with this one. It was one of the best sleepover / birthday party movies in the ’90s!

  • Ahhh this takes me back. One of my favorite films as a kid, could quote the whole movie line for line

  • no, there is nothing wrong with this movie…..obviously they dont know what a crumpet is, and they defininatly dont understand Cricket!

  • If the pizza was inserted horizontally down the sewer grate then wouldn’t the pizza be all lopsided?

    • For The Matrix he counted “This obviously wasn’t filmed in America” as a sin.

      • Eh, it can be a valid point. If they’re trying to hide the fact that it isn’t but it clearly is. Like how the Ghost Rider movie is set in America but people living in Australia can point out where the Australian parts are.

      • Well, it is an inconsistency at least, given that everyone in it is speaking with an American accent. I’ve seen far less valid ‘sins’ called out, though.

        • The setting is ambiguous. It’s not set in “America” or anywhere specific so any inconsistency isn’t really an issue.

          Dark City is filled with American accents and American fashion, music, culture and architecture, but if someone were to discredit it for not being filmed in America I’d think they were daft.
          Same thing with the Matrix, in my opinion.

          • This is fair. Not to mention the fact that the city name is never referenced and it’s acknowledged that it’s probably a dystopian construct designed by The Machines.

  • Yea I’ll be watching this again instead of Michael bays rubbish turtles. If you can’t make cgi look better than someone in a rubber suit, just use the rubber suit!

    You don’t have to look any further than the wicked witch in the new wizard of oz to prove why, plus if you can’t see Mila kunis, all you can hear is meg.

  • Being set and filmed in 1990 is a sin? Also I think he had a dig at theme song. I strongly dislike this person now.
