Turtle Power: Definitive History of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (DVD)

Customer Reviews

I would recommend this to any TMNT fan.
David D. Owens
I cant say this is the definitive history of TMNT because there is so much that was never discussed or just merely glanced over but I can say I did enjoy watching it.
Like to buy stuff
We get interview footage with the voice cast of the cartoon series, actors from the movies, producers, directors, etc.

Turtle Power is a documentary going over what they claim is the "definitive history of the teenage mutant ninja turtles", which I wouldn't say is completely true. This doesn't mean the movie is bad, because its actually very good.

The film focuses heavily on the creators of the turtles, the original comic book being started, the original cartoon series, the first live action movie, the merchandising, and the music tour. All of this is covered very well with interviews with the original creators, producers, actors and voice actors (seeing interview footage of James Avery choked me up a little), and other business people. Original sketches are shown, behind the scenes and test footage from the first movie, and so on.

The problem I had with the film is after talk about the first film and The Coming Out of Their Shells Tour happens, the film basically skips over the rest of the history of the franchise, jumping to present day and covers it in about 5 to 10 minutes. The second and third live action film are barely mentioned at all, the live action TV show The Next Mutation is not talked about, the 2007 animated film TMNT is not mentioned at all, the 2003 cartoon series is not mentioned at all, and nothing about the current 2012 cartoon series or the recently released 2014 live action/CGI movie. It is very disappointing that the more recent history of the franchise is breezed over so quickly. It felt like the film didn't care about anything recent. I understand the film wanted to primarily focus on the origins of the franchise, but having "Definitive History of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" in your film's title, I think its fair to assume that anything recent should of been expected to be talked about in this. I know it would of added to the run time, but still.

As a preface, I obtained a pre-release copy of this DVD from the studio and wrote a full review over at DVD Talk. Feel free to check it out for more information!

"Turtle Power" is a 98-minute documentary by Randall Lobb and a team of friends and fellow filmmakers, all with a love of the TMNT franchise. This self-financed film details the history of the pop culture phenomenon from its humble kitchen-table roots as a black-and-white comic series to the popular 1987 animated show and beyond. Very few stones are left unturned, although the more recent material isn't covered in as much detail. The franchise's non-stop wave of merchandise is talked about as well, from the original Playmates figures onward. Featured participants include co-creators Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird, animation producer Fred Wold, head writer / developer David Wise, Mirage Studio comic artists, the 1987 voice actors and many, many more. All things considered it's surprisingly well-rounded and accessible if you're a new or die-hard fan of the Ninja Turtles.

Paramount serves up this DVD release (no Blu-ray option, unfortunately) as a movie-only disc, sadly omitting the extras that would most certainly have made this more of a collector's item. Deleted scenes would've been nice, at the very least. But the film itself is a strong effort and worth watching, at least more so than the Michael Bay-produced movie debuting in theaters tomorrow.

First let me state that I've been following this doc since it's inception. I was actually interviewed for it way back in 2009 and it's exciting to see it's finally finished! With that said I am actually rather disappointed and here's why.

1. They've been releasing tidbits here and there online for a long time now. A lot of us have seen some of the amazing interviews they got and it's an utter shame to see a large portion of them weren't used.

2. This is far from a "Definitive History". I wish they would have called this "The Early Years" because honestly that's what it covers. They completely glaze over everything after the first film. There was a golden opportunity to talk about the fourth film that almost made it into production. It would have been nice to see more light shed on that project and why it wasn't made. They don't talk about TMNT in other countries*such as the anime*, the Red Sky seasons of the old series, Next Mutation, the Image books, the 2003 series, TMNT, Laird's fourth volume of the comics, or anything that occurred after the buy out. It would have also been nice to see them address the Warner Brothers cartoon series that was almost made as well as the CGI one that actually had a trailer.

Another missed opportunity was talking about the fifth film that Peter Laird was working on. First it was a sequel to TMNT and then it became what was to be the first live action PG-13 Turtles film. I would have liked more light shed on that. Possibly the biggest let down though was they interviewed Lloyd Goldfine, the creator of the Turtles Forever film, but he is barely in the film at all. Again this is because they pass over the 2003 series and again this is disappointing as Turtles Forever is one of the coolest TMNT things ever made.

I think the other reviewer thus far was expecting something more along the lines of the definitive history of Mirage Studios, or the Comic Book history of the Turtles. As such, I feel he missed the point of this documentary and wanted something it never set out to do. This is an in-depth, expansive look at the creation of the TMNT and what the property evolved into across television, cinema and toys. It has some great interviews with both Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman, as well as the supporting players that helped make this a global brand. I found it to be very engaging and entertaining, and would recommend it to anybody who enjoyed the TMNT from either the black and white Mirage days, or the 80's cartoon.
