About the Movie
In the spring of 1984, a strange new comic book sat beside cash registers in select shops, too big to fit in the racks, and too weird to ignore. Eastman and Laird’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles presented a completely original breed of super hero. It was too bizarre, too crazy. It broke all the rules and should never have worked. Until it sold out. Again and again and again. For thirty years. Now, peek under the shell and see how this so-called “happy accident” defied every naysayer to become one of the most popular and beloved franchises in the world.
Good but incomplete.
This documentary covers everything up through the first movie. It does a great job with the material it has, but it feels less "definitive" with no time given to the second and third films, the live action TV series, the CG TMNT movie, the 2003 animated series, the current animated series, the current IDW comic, and all of the video games.
You're a turtle fan? Then you gotta watch this documentary, better than what I expected!
Told a great story
