Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem review “Turtle Power is back”

The ooze those baby turtles were doused in not only mutated them into humanoid crimefighters – it also seemingly gave them powers of regeneration and longevity. Since the original animated series launched in 1987 (loosely adapted from the comics created a few years earlier), the heroes in a half-shell have never been too far from our screens, with varying degrees of success.

The latest feature-length iteration – which the marketing tags as from “permanent teenager Seth Rogen”, who co-writes, produces, and lends his voice – puts a younger, actually teenage spin on the sewer-dwelling foursome. It’s reinvigorating: this is the Turtles’ most enjoyable outing since their ’90s heyday.
