Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – Enter Shredder

Today, Nickelodeon released Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Enter Shredder on DVD.

“Get Lean, Mean and Green with the Turtles Team. Join Leo, Donnie, Raph and Mikey as they take to the streets of NYC, where every turn yields a new enemy. Get ready for non-stop battles against Kraang-droids, mechanical Mousers, a mutant alligator, and even the evil Shredder himself”.

Based on the description on the back of the movie case, it sounded like we were in for a fun action packed evening. We got the popcorn and drinks ready, and my youngest 3 sat down to watch. Giant Turtles, a very large Rat and a sidekick named April, how could this not be epic?

TMNT Enter Shredder CoverWell, the back of the box didn’t lie and my kids had a great time watching ALL of them. This collection of 7 short episodes were super fun to watch, and the animation was great. Much better than what I watched years ago with my little brothers.

In each episode, the Turtles had to save the world from the havoc that Shredder was causing in the city. Thankfully, Master Splinter taught them well and their legendary Ninja skills made them heroes every time.

There were also bonus special features on the DVD that are totally worth checking out. The kids loved “The Mutation of a Scene” feature as it showed the animation process, step by step. There were clips of pencil drawings, colour drawings and then the final movie all side by side. It was actually really neat to watch, and they watched that one part alone a few times.

There was also a comic book that you could “flip through” and read along on the screen. It wasn’t super exciting as there wasn’t any action, but it did force them to read the words. Score one for Mom.

If you’ve got kids that love ninjas and fighting action, this is the movie for them. I like that it’s a bunch of short episodes, so depending on your child’s attention span, they can watch as little or as much as you like. My girls actually loved watching it, so it’s most definitely not just for boys. In fact, they are ninja jumping and spinning around my living room as I write this. It’s good family fun, and would be a good pick for movie night.

Cowabunga Dude. Enjoy some Turtle Power – where the good guys win and the bad guys lose. The DVD is rated PG for violence (as violent as cartoon fighting turtles can be anyways). It is 168 minutes long and is available today wherever you buy your DVDs.
