The movie was cool, but the problem is, the movie took a sci-fi kind of approach which is not new but it felt a little too shabby. As you start viewing the intro scene of the new enemy, which is said to have originated 3000 years ago, your hopes that you are about to see an awesome turtle movie starts to drop… well mine did.
Actually the Turtles have a sci-fi side with the introduction of krang in the TV animation series and comics.

What am I saying? The name of the movie is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles… mutant turtles is already a sci-fi genre, but I was so looking forward to see the introduction of krang as to me it is about time they get introduced into the series, but instead we have to face another sci-fi story arc. This new story made the movie kind of low from my view point in the area of the plot, as the story felt a little bit too poor to be a box office hit material.

The movie in the chronology will be the third as the movie starts when the turtles have taken out Shredder, which occurred after the events of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: Secret of the Ooze (1991). The movie features also Casey Jones and April as a couple.

The movie plot is about a more than 3000 year old warrior king Yaotl, who became immortal 3000 years ago when he wanted ultimate power which he was able to get when he discovered a portal that opened to a parallel universe this made him powerful and immortal but it turned his other generals into stone and released 13 monsters on the earth.
Now in this our present day (2007) Yaotl collected all the statue of his generals and found a way to bring them back to motion, making them stone statues that could move and talk.

Things in the sewers weren’t so rosy too, as Leonardo was sent by Splinter for training as a leader in South America, a training that Leonardo didn’t quite understand, but he returned home and now he and his turtle brothers are now facing a new challenge. The Foot Clan seemed to have been rebuilt and also monsters seem to be on the loose in New York, and a man named Max Winters who is actually Yaotl is behind this all, but the turtle group has been out of sync for a long time and is finding it hard to work together as a group.

So they most begin to function again as a group in order to defeat their new enemy.

After seeing this I still stand and say that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles I (1990) is the best adaptation that there is of this comic heroes, as this movie failed in the eyes of the critics and commercially.
Now don’t get me wrong as I said in the beginning this movie is cool and fun to watch so don’t hesitate to see it.
The order in which these movies are, critically are:
1.                   Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles I (1990)
2.                   TMNT (2007)
3.                   Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: Secret of the Ooze (1991)
4.                   Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III (1993)
