Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990)

[short entry]

based on a comic book

I was a freshman in college when the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie came out. And I wasn't into comics. So I watched it for the very first time with my kids last week. I think I was a bit old for TMNT when it was big, so I don't have the nostalgia factor. The premise was fun, the story decent. I guess I was just "whelmed" to coin a phrase. Was it adapted from the cartoon which was adapted from the comics? I'll have to check that out. (The above pic is, of course, the original cover from the Eastman and Laird comic.)
