How did the movie live up to its name in terms of:
-Being 'teenage'
-'mutant'
-'ninja'
-'turtles'


EDIT: Not sure if I posted this poll right. I was curious how people would rank the 4 attributes on a scale of say 1-10. I've heard numerous people say the movie didn't feature much "ninja" action, but I would rank the movie high in terms of the "teenage" quality.

Imo, kind of a tie with "mutan" and "turtle," which could be lumped together really as one choice (since the "turtle" bit can't really stand alone without the "mutant" part).

Obviously the "ninja" part is not as played up in this one than it could have been. And to me the "teen" part feels a bit forced, out of need for title/traditional storyline. Mikey pretty much carried the entire "teen" bit. The other three never really had any clear dialogue or actions to support it and even goofing off in the elevator could still be easily attributed to young adults (or not so young in many cases lol). If they had said that Mikey was still a teen (maybe late teens) but the rest had hit their young 20s I could have believed it. (For that matter I could have believed they were 30.)

This is ridiculous.

ie: Rate Batman on if there was enough bat, and enough man.
OR
Pacific Rim...draw your own conclusions.

Mutant. They were huge, freakish, ugly, & the laws of science/nature/physics don't apply to them.

In some parts of Little Tokyo, you can get a Pacific Rim for about five American dollars... :tgrin:

The movie shouldn't have been called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

It should have been called Hunchback Monster Smashing Ogre's! That fits the Turtles in this movie much better. No need to get up anyone, I know I killed it.

There is no way that movie's title is anything but a joke between the producers. Not ONE person raised their hand at the pitch meeting? Come onnnnnnn, maaaaaaaaan... :lol: They just wanted to see if they could get away with it, I'm certain of it.

No, no, I want to get you started. Here's an easy one: "Jack Reacher" is dangerously close to "Jack Reach-Around". Do something with that. :P

Definitely mutant, somewhat turtles, hardly teenager (besides Mikey) and the tiniest little itty bitty bit of ninja

no offense, but this is a kind of pointless thread

i dont know, but they truely were all of those things, some more than others, i just see this turning into yet another bashing of the movie because they designed their turtles a little bigger and more realistic.

they all had moments where they seemed like teenagers, yes, they were mutants. regardless of size, its not out of the question that they could be trained as ninjas? they fought like ninjas? were good at staying hidden, even if it wasnt because they were small, they turned out lights, used the train to block sound, seems ninja to me. and they were turtles?
