TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES is a US action adventure about a group of mutant turtles who team up with a young reporter to defeat a threat to their city.

Violence

There are frequent scenes of martial arts violence, which include kicks to the face, chest and legs that send characters flying into walls and through windows. Some characters are thrown through moving train windows, or out of moving vehicles. There is lots of gunfire, although most characters are not harmed; when one man is shot, there is no blood or injury detail. There is a lot of focus on a character who has a suit entirely made out of metal blades, including ones which he flicks open on his hands and sends flying out at those he is fighting. The violence is often accompanied by jokey asides made by the main characters.

Threat

There are frequent moments of threat, including people being held hostage at gunpoint, or being left dangling from roofs, cliffs or the sides of speeding trucks.

Other issues include mild bad language, with uses of 'shit', 'ass' and 'butt'. There are also some mild sex references as a man looks appreciatively at a woman's clothed bottom, and as some characters use a large billboard advert, showing a woman wearing a bra, in order to hide.
