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.

I don't understand all the negativity found in this thread, I think this actually has a chance of happening, we as a fandom need to stick together and back this project to make it happen. #backed #adultTMNT #wearemiragefans #krangrox

And for the haters and doubters, you clearly did not read the Risks and Challenges section, he clearly addresses all concerns here and has a plan.
Quote:
Risks and challenges
1. Nickelodeon owns Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles at the moment. To make the film, they would have to approve of this vision. Traditionally, their market is much younger, but I feel that the more than 80 million millennials out there would be compelling to them.

It is not my desire to alienate today's teenagers by making this film, but to introduce them to the turtles in a sophisticated manner. Though it will be violent and there may be some brief nudity, it will not step over the bounds of good taste and risk traumatizing youth. Rather, it should provide lessons about the challenge of becoming an adult which is a theme in my vision.

So, in the end, I hope to have the teenagers of 90s and today in theaters eating it up together.

2. Much of what is promised here is admittedly up in the air. There has been no meeting with Mark Cuban and there is no production company behind this yet. But, I have a strong and clear vision and the unwavering will to accomplish it. If there is a demand for this film, I believe I am the producer to put the necessary pieces together.

The issue is that troubled kids and even LITTLE kids are not compatible with the seamless sort of underworld Saki is supposed to be running in the source material.

What happens when Little Johnny goes and snitches on Big Bad Master Tatsu? The whole house of cards come down.

Are you serious? Come on. I'd love to make a Sonic movie but I'm not gonna waste time trying to appoint myself as the "man for the job" to Sega.

His story could be great. That's not the point. He thinks, or thought anyway, he could get Nick to approve his idea for $20 million? This whole pitch was ridiculous. Nick was not gonna give him a dollar.

No one is going to take you seriously when all you've done is write fanfic to something you have no rights to. You can't squeeze your way into someone else's franchise.
