Otherwise don't expect them to be lifted until closer to the release.
Well when they lift it, it will be before May 30th.

There is still one question.

Will this be a rather nice film?

How is a simple paste job "more effort"? You stuck movie Krang into his cartoon body. Woohoo. His is at least creative and added something to tbe image. And he made it funny.

The Sewer Den is one of the popular TMNT fansites, also this review is non spoiler, so it's ok to read.

I'd assume someone who writes for a site dedicated to TMNT would be a big fan and he has an entire room of TMNT stuff but that review seems to be written by someone who barely knows the franchise at all.

I'm especially floored by this...

Quote:
Shredder's most iconic trait is absent for most of Out of the Shadows - his iconic helmet and mask. Fans will be divided over this creative choice, but I liked it. It's an attempt to give our favorite villain more depth. Instead of looking at a lifeless hunk of metal, the audience gets a human face for a change. And this human face belongs to Brian Tee - who does a solid job portraying old chrome dome. The source material prevents Shredder from being anything more than one-note, but Tee's venomous performance is a refreshing spin on the 30+ year old character. In Out of the Shadows, we see Shredder in new situations thanks to ditching the constant use of a helmet and mask.
What on Earth is this person talking about? Sure the helmet was an almost ever present fixture of the 80s animated series (and it's not like he never took it off in that) but every other version has shown that wears the armor mainly for battle, it's hardly a controversial to see him without it and nothing we've seen in the trailers seems to be new territory for the character.

The idea that the "The source material prevents Shredder from being anything more than one-note" is plain wrong. I would say that Shredder's general backstory that both Platinum Dunes movies have rejected gives him some depth and depending on the version varying degrees of it to mine. As Tohoru Masamune pointed when he actually did some research into the original comics you could almost say Shredder is almost a victim himself. Heck even if his only exposure to the franchise was the 80s cartoon and the 90s movie it's not like this element was completely absent in those versions. The long standing feud between Yoshi and Saki was fairly prominent in the Steve Barron movie and the early seasons of the Fred Wolf show.

I'm in awe that an actual fan would argue this point and if it's what he truly believes maybe he should be suggesting the change him after all he's very cool with that...

Quote:
Stephen Amell gives the character a fresh spin with a different brand of humor. I would never say he's better than Elias Koteas, but his performance is so different that the comparison seems trivial. Experience Casey for who he is in this movie and you'll enjoy it.
Isn't part of the appeal of these movies for fans to see their favorite characters brought to life. What's the point if they are going to just completely reinvent characters?

In principal he's not wrong after all every so often a reinvention comes along that justifies the change but what if this version of Casey falls short of engaging? After all based everything we've seen and heard about Out of the Shadows' version of the character it doesn't sound all that interesting.

"Raphael isn't dumbed-down to a hothead."

I can appreciate the possible attempt to give the character more depth but instead, they gave him a fear of heights for no other reason than to aid in their stupid drawn out plane splat joke. One step forward three steps back. freaking pathetic.

Jesus Christ, was that person paid for that review? Or is he just so far up the movie's ass that he can't see bottom anymore?

"Yeah just show Shredder's face that'll give him more 'depth.'"

Give me a freaking break.

This is such a weird assessment...

You recognise the reviewer is right but criticise him based on hypotheticals...even...though...he's...seen the movie....

It's not just paste. I had to cut it, paste it and redraw all the cartoon android body parts back over it and stuff. He just drew an easy top hat and cane.

Besides that, I'm really excited for this movie with all the great reviews!
