Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Movie

After only two seasons on Nickelodeon, directors Ant Ward and Andy Suriano released Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Movie on Netflix and it is outstanding.


The film was released on the 5th of August 2022 by distributor Netflix and was welcomed with open arms by many fans across the globe with many of them asking whether the series would get a third season any time soon.


Rise of the TMNT: The Movie is centered particularly on Leonardo voiced by Ben Schwartz, who from past presentations has always been shown as a leader of the team of turtles.


However, in this film, we get to see a different persona from the character that I once viewed as respectable and focused.
Leonardo is arrogant, self-centered, and completely blind to anything else around him but himself, and this film aims to build that character we all love and adore from the ground up.
What can you expect to see from the Rise of the TMNT: The Movie?
An introduction is everything to me when it comes to films and directors Andy Suriano and Ant Ward did not hold back with this one.
Straight off the bat, you can expect to be amazed at how far the turtles have come from swinging their powerless weapons around to swinging mystical weapons that are just incredible.
Unlike a lot of fighting sequences that you’d find in American cartoons, this film’s fighting choreography seems to come out from what you’d expect from Japanese animation.
Which is refreshing and breathtaking to see.
Another amazing aspect of the Rise of the TMNT: The Movie is the spectacular way in which the movie begins off as quirky, free-spirit, and fun but then turns real dark and gory in a matter of minutes.
Expect the unexpected during this film because that’s how speechless and dumbfounded I felt throughout this film.
The characters are different from what I used to know but just as incredible.
For once in his life, Raphael voiced by Omar Benson Miller is shown to be more than just a brute and more of a leader than Leonardo, April O’Neil is an actual fighter alongside the turtles and Splinter rather than just a driver.
And the last thing that I found exceptionally well in the Rise of the TMNT: The Movie is the marvelous pacing of the film and its villains, the Krang.
From the get-go, the Krang is shown to think of themselves as superior beings that think little to nothing about any other race with a twisted complex that enjoys the torture of others.
Their arrival certainly changes everything in the movie and I luxuriated in it.
I, myself was a huge fan of the series back in the days with shredder but over the years, the outrageous designs of the turtles put me off the franchise as the turtles stopped looking like turtles and more like disfigured masculine beings.
However, after watching this phenomenal film, I might start watching the two seasons of the Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles that were released in 2019 – 2020 on the Nickelodeon channel.
Just to get a better sense of where the movie comes in.

"Ben is special. He brings so much genuine love for the characters — so much genuine humor. He’s an amazing guy. He’s super charming. He’s so funny. He loves to play in the booth. He’s really respectful to work with and ultra professional. He’s a great-all around guy."

Casey Jones travels from the future to the past to warn the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles of an impending invasion of the most dangerous alien force in the galaxy — the Krang.
