Together, the turtles must locate the Technodrome to fix this mess!

As worlds collide, the turtles come face to face with classic characters like Casey and April, and a slew of enemies including Krang, Hun, the Foot Soldiers, the Purple Dragons, Bebop and Rocksteady!
In the original animated series from the 1980s, the Turtles often broke the fourth wall, and talked directly to the audience. This wasn't the case however with the 2003 series. This is made reference to in this movie, as the 1980s Turtles break the fourth wall several times. Until finally, Hun gets fed up and begins to violently shake the 1980s Raphael, while asking, "Why do you keep doing that?! Who are you talking to?! There's no one there!" See more »

For several months, 4kids' website featured a "Director's Cut" of the movie which contained eight minutes of footage that were cut from the TV broadcast, and eventually Paramount's 2010 DVD as well. Among the scenes restored:
The Turtles using sonar to search for the Technodrome underground
Karai explaining that she found the Technodrome when her monitoring systems revealed that Ch'rell had changed location
Karai claiming the Technodrome for the Foot Clan
Splinter settling an argument between the 1988 and 2003 Turtles
Casey and April fighting robotic Foot Ninjas
Leonardo detailing Shredder's scheme to the Mirage Turtles
Shredder nearly disintegrating himself and Karai (among others) while strangling the Mirage Turtles
Excellent! Just really fun and entertaining. Quality.
I very recently started watching feature length animated movies.. Like the Marvel and DC ones. I did some research to find some good ones, and among the ones I found, this one showed up.
And man was it entertaining. I loved it. I really enjoy the concept of the Turtles meeting versions of themselves from other dimensions. Very cool.
I'm not a die hard Turtles fan or anything, although I did like Turtles when I was a kid, but this movie just entertained the hell out of me anyway.
The story is pretty good, and the dimension-stuff is awesome. The fighting and action is very good. And maybe the best part of the whole movie is the dialogue between the turtles, and the differences between the dimensions. The movie is kind of self aware, and that's cool.
This is actually the first 9 I've given in quite a while, if I remember correctly.
