In a city overrun by crime, there is a desperate need for heroes. Leonardo (Pete Ploszek), Raphael (Alan Ritchson), Michelangelo (Noel Fisher) and Donatello (Jeremy Howard) step up to fill that role -- even if they are not human, but instead Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014)...
Violence: Characters engage in constant acts of violence. These bloodless conflicts include depictions of martial arts battles, bombs and explosions, impaling and stabbings, as well as gun and weapon use. Destruction of property and vehicles are frequent. Characters are taken as hostages, threatened with death and some are killed. A contest to prove strength results in the death of a couple of men. A demonstration of the effects of breathing a poisonous gas leaves a man disfigured and writhing on the floor. Characters are often in perilous situations, such as hanging from tall buildings, falling from heights, tumbling over cliffs and being mowed down by fast moving vehicles. Scary looking villains wear masks or armor, and their leader has a scared face (although he is never clearly seen.) Evil characters verbally express their lack of regard for the life of others, a willingness to use innocent people as bait and to take blood from the bodies of others—even if doing so means they will die.
Sexual Content: A few mild sexual innuendos are heard. A man ogles a woman’s behind. A billboard advertising lingerie is used as a hiding spot for a couple of turtles (think turtle-shell bra).
Language: Mild profanities are used infrequently.
Alcohol / Drug Use: Characters given adrenaline as medicine become extremely hyperactive.
Other: Blood is seen in medical tubing when it is being drawn out of the bodies of some characters.
