This is from a vimeo account of a guy who claims to work for ILM of some test footage for some turtle fight scenes in the Platinum Dunes movie. If this is legit then it's a shame we didn't get something like this in the movie.

While it's still a little weird to see the these big turtles do martial arts it mostly works even in this cruder form and we should have seen some of this in the movie.

BTW if this has already been posted I apologize and you can ignore.

My god those ninja-like moves and animation. This. I wish we had this.

I dunno know what that is, never seen it and does seem roughly PD... Early test stuff with early rough models? Or simply someone else who does "ninja" better? But that animation is pretty sweet. (edit: Not to suggest the film's stunt guys aren't good, but behind the scenes stuff seemed to clearly show footage with them that wasn't used, dumbing down the fight scenes, which is unfortunate.)

Fight choreography by David Leitch
The films need him. (Unless of course he's already involved, in that case they need to not tie his hands.)

Wow a scene from the PD movie I genuinely enjoy sadly it's not apart of the actual movie.

Wow. That was pretty slick. Too bad we didn't see any of that in the movie. Loved their different styles.

I doubt it, It says this was posted 2 months ago, If it were from the new movie, Paramount could've taken it down.

If by new movie you mean the upcoming one... possibly, but Galactus wasn't suggesting that. If you mean the most recent one, more than likely not. It's obviously more of his portfolio work.

I agree wholeheartedly. Instead they just threw the Foot soldiers around like rag dolls.

It's alright, nothing too fancy. But still a whole lot better then what we got.

the fight scenes in this looks brutal, I hope we see this kind of stuff in the sequel, since there will be foot ninjas this time.

The Turtles are still too damn big. Not terrible, though.

The Turtles' designs and size are still garbage, but this style of action is infinitely better than what made it to screen. One-on-one combat with some brutal impact. Like -- gasp -- ninjas!

I wonder if it was cut for exactly that reason. Bigger, louder super-powered action and explosions might not feel as "real" as this.

The thing about this fight reel is you see Leo and Raph literally kill those dudes, Leo stabbed them with his katanas, and Raph snapped one guy's neck, That's like pushing the PG-13 rating to its limit.

Because of the "brilliant" decision to make them bullet proof:D

Sure, but those are split-second moments that could be changed or cut around. Everything else is still just 1000x better than what made it into the actual movie.

so the blades are actually the handles and the handle is the main part of the weapon. I've been using my Sai's wrong all along. Thanks PD Raph! :tlol:

(that was sarcasm for the ones of you who didn't get it)

i have a problem with the guys not shooting their guns. Give them swords or something then! But that woulda been great if it was actually in the movie. Still woulda have sucked though.

The problem was never the action scenes, it was the plot, writing, designs, settings, ect. The action scenes within themselves aren't bad

And honestly i woulda have preferred that exact mikey to the one we got in the movie.

Raph holds his sai normally in that clip, not sure what the punchline of your joke was?

fyi, Sai don't have blades, but prongs. They are truncheon weapons not daggers.

fyi, Sai don't have blades, but thongs. They are truncheon weapons not daggers.

Wouldn't they be called PRONGS?

Hey if ye olde sandals can be called thongs, sai blades could totally also be called thongs and I would only be 90% surprised. :tlol:

Not so sure of the weapon efficiency with a thong sai, though.

Hey, sometimes a Turtle just likes to feel pretty, y'know? :trazz:

Or in Raph's case here, "pretty and witty and gay!!" Sorry, I broke out into a musical number for a second there. Had to. It's required I do so at least once a month.

I agree that this looks a lot better than the choreography used in the actual movie against the Foot. It does seem reminiscent of the choreography between the Turtles and Shredder at the end though.

This video is awesome and a million times better than what we got in the movie. The problem is that as we can see, their martial skills are very limited because of their sizes.

When I look at this and the making of the movie (with the ninja training), it seems like some people involved really wanted to make a Ninja turtles film. But somebody (Bay ?) came and said "Who cares about martial arts ?, these turtles will through their enemies like hulk".
