More Detail:

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: MUTANT MAYHEM is an animated reboot of the origins of the green guardians where the four mutant turtles, with help from their stepfather and a human reporter, must stop a mutant fly from committing genocidal extermination of the human race. TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: MUTANT MAYHEM is a rousing, funny, creative take on the fearless foursome heroes on the half shell, with strong morally uplifting content, but the movie has some intense violence, scary creatures and foul language that warrant caution for older children.

The movie re-envisions the origins of the mutant turtles. A top secret military group sends a bunch of tough soldiers to grab the mutant formula that a scientist is working on in his lab. The group’s leader wants to use the formula, called the ooze, to create an army of super soldiers, but the scientist dumps the ooze into the sewer. The scientist deliberately infects his large pet mutant fly and the other animals in his lab with the ooze, then dumps the rest down the sewer. The ooze also gets on his pet rat, Splinter. Splinter sees the ooze infect four baby turtles in the sewer. So, he scoops up the mutant turtles, finds a place to hide and raises them as his own children.

Fifteen years later, Splinter has trained his four boys, Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, and Michelangelo, to be martial artists, to protect themselves from humans. The humans will grab you and try to milk you, he warns them, but we don’t have nipples, one of the turtles objects. The turtles long to be accepted by the human race, but Splinter warns them this will never happen.

Meanwhile, the dead scientist’s mutant pet fly, Superfly, is using the other mutant animals and reptiles from the lab to steal high tech equipment to get revenge on the human race for killing the scientist. When the turtles get wind of the scope of Superfly’s plan, they decide to stop him, with help from a female human reporter they’ve befriended. Doing that is easier said than done, however.

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: MUTANT MAYHEM tells a rousing, funny, creative story. Some of the dialogue is hilarious, and the animation is groundbreaking and unique. The characters sometimes talk over one another too much, however. This can lead to some confusion about what’s happening. However, the voice work by the actors is excellent.

MUTANT MAYHEM has a strong morally uplifting worldview. The adoptive father of the four turtles has a strong fatherly concern for them and their wellbeing. Also, though the turtles realize that humans probably will reject them if they knew about them, they decide to protect humanity from Superfly’s evil intentions because it’s the right thing to do.

MUTANT MAYHEM has some intense violence, scary creatures and foul language. So, MOVIEGUIDE® advises caution for older children.
