PLOT:
When juvenile Crime is on the rise. Reporter April O'Neal links it to a secret ninja clan called the Foot. After being attacked by Foot Ninja in the subway she is rescued by four mutant turtles and their rat sensei. Where she learns their link to the Foot Clan and their leader the Shredder. I liked this I really did.

On the run when the Foot discovers the Turtle Lair and Master Splinter captured they turn to their new friend Casey Jones for help.

OPINION:

However I didn't like the changes they made different from the cartoon. I also would have liked to seen Krang the alien brain.

(1-10 IN THIS CASE 10 BEING WORST)

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE:

+ MUPPETS (Using Muppets as turtles was brillant)
+ FIGHTS (I respect anyone who do complex martial arts moves while wearing a shell)
+ CASEY'S MASK (Casey's mask was perfect to the cartoon)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE:

- STORY CHANGES (Didn't like the way they changed the story from the cartoon series. Amano Yoshi was transformed into Splinter he wasn't a pet)

- SHREDDER'S MASK (The vents in Shredder's mask was totally wrong. They could have dubbed his lines)

- NO KRANG (I missed Krang. They should have found a way to put him in)
