On March 4, 2014, Shout Factory released Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation – East Meets West on DVD. Being that I not only loved these guys as a child but that now my two boys love them just as much, we had to have this one. We've only seen the cartoon versions together and I knew this would be a much more realistic version they could enjoy. They are always playing the old school arcade version game on our Xbox 360 and have become quite obsessive about it.
The synopsis says "Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo are four genetically mutated turtles who have grown into human-sized, ninja-powered crime-fighters living in the sewers of New York City. Under the tutelage of Master Splinter, these four teens have spent their formative years fighting their nemesis, Shredder, and his evil army. But the turtles’ world is about to change….and if you thought Shredder was bad, wait until you meet the newest TMNT foe: Dragon Lord! It will take all the power of the turtles to combat this new villain…but luckily for them, they will have help from a new ninja turtle, a female turtle named Venus De Milo!"
Recommendation: Both boys loved this as if you couldn't tell from the review portion! I think this is totally worth all $7 bucks and then some. I can't believe this one is listed so cheap! You are getting something your kids will love to watch over and over if they enjoy this type of action!
