Synopsis by Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Epic Begins contains highlights from the first five episodes of the animated television series. In these programs, the origin of the Turtles is explained, as is their first war with the villain Shredder. Instead of presenting the complete, uncut versions of the first five episodes, The Epic Begins edits the programs together, with a total running time of just over 70 minutes.
