'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Family Review: 5 Things Every Parent Should Know The heroes in a half shell are back, and this time they are the most realistic looking Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ever, thanks to Industrial Light & Magic's performance-capture technology.

The violence is similar to that in most superhero flicks, with large-scale action sequences that leave characters injured or in one case dead. Shredder nearly kills Splinter, who is shown unconscious, and three of the Turtles are caged and tortured (almost bled to death). The villains hope to release a biological weapon into New York that will poison everyone....
