Although it has several times made into a movie, the story this time back to the early days of the birth of the hero turtles and their master, Splinter. As the fruit from exposure to mutagens fluid, they morphed from four turtles and a rat into a funny super hero.
The story changes into a cute animal than the mighty giant is highlighted into a heartbreaking story.

Bay has been synonymous with exciting entertainment, unequaled bin Transformers, Armageddon, and Pearl Harbor. In the intervention Bay, modernized the ninja turtles become a very powerful figure. Their movements are very fast. So fast, they could easily subdue criminals without being seen its true face.
Just like the characterizations in the television series Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles played in Indonesia of the 1980s, Leonardo (Pete Ploszek) who wore a blue mask and armed a pair of katana is present as a group leader turtle firm. Raphael (Alan Ritchson) wears a red mask and armed with a pair of sai. Donatello (Jeremy Howard) were tortoise purple genius inventor masked armed with bo stick. Michelangelo (Noel Fisher) remains a major source of freshness with a funny doings. Together as a family, they summersault and fight enemies with ninja techniques.
Segment targeting teenagers and children, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles got rich polish fresh comedic elements. Although stuck (or even blessed) in the body of a giant tortoise bullet resistant, teenage mutant turtle is no different from a large urban adolescents. Living in the sewers of New York, ninja turtles pinch style urban culture, such as by directing mirror to see pretty girls dancing in a pub.
However, behind the innocence and silliness teen style, they are a scary team combat. They are heroes in their shell and green. Cowabunga!
