I can't begin to explain how much it truly pains me to give this gem of a movie one star. Being a huge fan of the Ninja Turtles, I fell in love with this movie when I saw it on TV (even though it was reduced to 70 minutes, like it's evidently being released here). And once I saw the entire version (79 minutes) I fell in love with it even more.
To think that Nickelodeon is going to release this movie at it's edited length is disgusting. You may think I'm over-reacting, but seriously... what is the point of not issuing the full movie? This is DVD people, there are no time constraints for commercials. And trust me, that 9 mintues they cut goes a long way in humor, action, plot explanations and even character depth (i.e. Shredder).
Also, look at the cover art. As you can tell by other reviews, the coolest thing about this movie is that it stars the famous Turtles from the 1987 animated series (voiced by sound-alikes who do a great job)... and they're no where to be seen on the cover!
Hopefully Nickelodeon ammends these foolish mistakes. I will gladly delete this review if they come to their senses before the release date.
