Turtle Power – Movie Review

With the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles smashing the box office world-wide, a very interesting documentary that explores the cultural impact of the beloved turtles was released in digital format In Australia, in order to give fans an inside look at the genesis of the half-shell heroes.

Directed by Randall Lobb, Turtle Power: The Definitive History of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles features amazing footage from the 90’s when the ‘Turtlemania’ hit the world in full force with comic books, cartoons, food, video games and a ridiculous amount of merchandise, that is truly amazing to see today.

The documentary includes interviews with a lot of personalities involved in the process of making the Ninja Turtles a pop culture icon, from creators Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird, to the people who worked in the creation of the original toys, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles first live-action film director Steve Barron, the original voice cast for the beloved cartoons and even the performers behind the shell during the Ninja Turtles Musical shows, making this film a evocative trip back in time, full of nostalgia and timeless moments.

Turtle Power: The Definitive History of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, feels exactly like the first time you put a coin to play the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game at your local arcade…yes, it’s that awesome…COWABUNGA!
