Based on Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird's phenomenally successful comic book creation, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles takes the dynamic characters off the page and throws them onto the screen for their very first live-action origin adventure. A puddle of radio-active waste transforms four innocent turtles into anthropomorphic teens. Challenged to put their angst aside, Raphael, Leonardo, Michaelangelo and Donatello seek the expert guidance of wise Master Splinter and aspire to become New York City's greatest mutant crime fighters. Befriended by the feisty April O'Neil (Judith Hoag, Nashville) and kickass Casey Jones (Elias Koteas, Zodiac), they are pitted against the evil Shredder, where fists will fly, shuriken will spin and nun chucks will whir! Featuring costumes by Jim Henson's Creature Shop, produced by the famed martial arts studio Golden Harvest and directed by visionary filmmaker Steve Barron (Coneheads), Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is an exciting leap into classic comic book entertainment.
