Our review of what was once the highest-grossing independent movie of all time…before Blair Witch Project dethroned it. Is it an overrated piece of my own childhood nostalgia…or the best martial arts/action/comedy starring four walking, talking turtles, their rat sensei, and a whole lot of human beings ever made? Or is the truth more nuanced and complicated than anyone’s willing to admit? I’ll admit something: due to the internet’s current demographics, this film – and its sequels – are some of the most over-reviewed films of all time…at least in cyberspace. I can only add my own perspective and hope that will be enough.
