Leo (Age 8): ★★★★★

"I loved this movie and I thought all of the ninja turtles were very funny. Super fly was a bit scary but I am glad the turtles beat him in the end.

I am glad that everyone realised the turtles were good and they wouldn’t have to live in the sewers their whole life. I was happy that they were able to go to High School and make new friends. The movie shows you that it’s important to treat everyone with respect and not judge anyone by the way they look.

If you watch the movie, I hope you enjoy it!"
