While the movie isn't perfect, I never understood the issue with Danny. I thought he was a good way to give us a perspective on Saki's operation, as well as parallel his family issues with the turtles.

I never felt like he was the focus of the movie.

While I'm here, can I just say how much I love intro to this movie? Seeing Ninja's cruising around in the back of a van in grungy 90's New York is such a pleasure for me. The grainy look of the film, as well as the makeshit feel of The Foot's operation was another way the film captured the spirit of the comics for me, visually. Subtle but effective.

Obviously they added that stuff as is the case with any movie adapted from a comic.

That's not exactly the point, would those parts have meshed well if they were in the comic?

This movie does not need a 15 age rating, why would anyone come to such an absurd conslusion? It is, at worst, pushing 7 to the limit. 11 almost seems far too much.

As a child, I would watch a lot of ordinary action-adventure comedy films on video, somehow usually rated 15 in Sweden.

its a recommended age limit, not enforced. The MPAA is more ridiculous of a system.

Sure, I just don't get why this movie in particular gets that high of an age limit in the first place.

In cinemas, ratings are enforced.

It's not a hard nut to crack, it's a kid's movie featuring the dreaded "karatesticks", plenty of fighting and Shredder was (until reconned by SotO) killed by being thrown off a building and crushed inside a garbage truck on purpose. And it had some swearing.

Unless it's a adult movie, kids can have a age appropriate guardian accompany them.

Yes. Also, most children don't go to cinemas alone anyway.

The first movie is certainly a PG film although it's interesting to see how useless that rating has become, at least in the UK.
