MPOV: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

April O'Neil, a reporter for Channel 6 news in New York, has been watching a mysterious organization called the Foot Clan terrorizing New York. She stumbles upon a robbery they are committing one night and notices a strange looking figure having foiled it. She tries reporting back to Channel 6 about her findings, but no one believes her.

The Foot Clan then terrorizes a subway next. She goes to the scene again in an attempt to find the vigilante and find evidence towards his existence. She sees four vigilantes this time, as they all fight off the Foot Clan and then disappear. She manages to spot them climbing atop the rooftop however, and tries to take a picture of them with her camera to prove to her co-workers they are real. The turtles Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael discover her and delete the camera images however, and tell her not to tell anyone of their existence or they will personally find her. She asks them who they are before they leave, and claim to be "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles."

She returns to her apartment and finds a July 1999 footage in her camera of a laboratory she was a part of when she was a little girl. She notices that the turtles she took care of from the laboratory 15 years earlier seem similar to the mutant turtles she had seen on the rooftop. She also remembers that her father was testing a type of mutagen in the laboratory. She continues doing more research and eventually pieces together that the Ninja Turtles were the same ones from the laboratory.

It was an entertaining movie, funny at times, doesn't makes sense at others. Well, this is a 'make believe' movie so you can't expect much. I liked that they actually have real actors for Splinter and the turtles so it was as realistic as it gets with all the costumes. An OK movie to watch if you can't go home and got stuck in a very bad 'car park' traffic jam.
