Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990)
When the New York City Police Department is unable to stop a severe crime wave caused by the Foot Clan, four mutated vigilante turtles Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael come forth to save the city. Under the leadership of mutated rat, Splinter, and together with their new-found allies April O'Neil and Casey Jones, they fight back and take the battle to The Shredder. The film kept very close to the dark feel of the original comics, and is a direct adaptation of the comic book storyline involving the defeat of Shredder, with several elements also taken from the 1987 TV series that was airing at the time, such as April being a news reporter, and the turtles having different-colored masks, as opposed to the uniform red masks of the comic.
