The story starts off with all the turtles being off in there own direction having split over differences. But soon there is a challenge that will require the turtles to reunite like and work together like they have never before. As some ancient demons are awaken that will challenge the turtles like never before. At first I was not sold on the cgi that was used for this film but it does allow them to do somethings that would not have been allowed if it was live action. The story is pretty good and petty interesting. If anything it does seem very short about the time you are ready for more. Back to the CGI it is very smooth and crisp. The story also is one that entertains all ages from about 5 and up. The fight scenes at times do turn very cartoonish. There are other times that you forget that the film is CGI. Though the story is not all the unpredictable it still does a good job holding your attention. I do have a small grip with the title, I think they should have stuck with a more traditional name. I also wanted to mention that the soundtrack was very creative and well done as well. It does what it should do, it enhances the film. Overall I enjoyed this film and it is something I would watch again. OUtside of it being short and sometimes a little to cartoonish.
