The Most Objective Study Yet Finds No Link Between Video Games and Violence

    The turtles weren’t the bad part despite having noses and big size… the action was tight the story lacking. Everything didn’t have to be connected… as a 30 yr old, growing up with the original movie(which still holds) and cartoon. I actually wasn’t disappointed. More turtles, less April… and hire better writers bc that plot has been done and it takes away from what might have been a good movie

    How old is shedder? Eric Sachs is like 50 if the shedder raised him he is what 75? Is this just the Amazing Spiderman plot? Why is April Oneil the main character of the movie? Where did this mountain on the edge of New York come from? Where on the compound was that ware house Raph fought shedder in? Why is the release computer on the roof? Does the elivator open directly out the side of the building so that you have to scale the side to jump over the railing?  I didn’t why are the turtles sizes relative in comparison to each other? They seem to change scale constantly? Was shedder going to kill him self when he released the gas? They didn’t technically have an antidote, or even confirmed pure mutagen… they just had blood that may contain it… Why is it a super intelligent rat learning karate from a bird cage before he ever mutates is now now way more believable then a picture book called the art of…I’ll give them props for the “It slices, it Dices” – pizza cutting  homage scene.

    The lack of this movie being good was disappointing. 

  6. Amor says:

    The lack of Vanilla Ice in the latest TMNT movie is disappointing.

  7. Kevin Carter says:

    The best thing they could  possibly do is have Krang kill Megan O’Neil Fox in the first 5min. The rest of the movie can be spent doing pretty much anything because it would be a million times better than the first already.
