DVD review: Heroes on a Half Shell return in style
Grade • A-
DVD/Blu-ray • Since the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles first appeared — in comic-book form — way back in 1984, they've been through a number of incarnations on the small and big sceens, from Saturday-morning cartoons to live-action movies.
Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael made a welcome return in a new TV series in 2012 — it reset the legend of four turtles and transformed them into a team of do-gooding superheroes.
The new computer animation updated the look, and the writers went back to the humor that made the show fun.
Thirteen first-season episodes are packaged as "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Rise of Turtles" — a collection that will entertain kids and adults.
