It's sounding like what I was expecting, a fun popcorn movie. Which is fine with me. I wouldn't mind a smarter script but at the end of the day I want a fun TMNT movie.

Is there a reason why the film had to be limited to a 100 minute runtime?

We still dont have an official runtime, Rotten Tomatoes is still showing it as 2 hours.

Word is, they can get more showings in a day with a shorter movie. In this day and age where the majority of the movies are so front loaded, I guess each hour in the day counts for money earned by the studios. Not to mention, there is also this thing about movies being marketed to kids that shorter is better, considering we are dealing with smaller attention spans and bladders.

Of course, this is all hypothetical with no concrete evidence.

I think this will undoubtedly be his best film to date

Can I say that I loathe the argument "Who watches ________ for Oscar-caliber performances?" Is it really so terrible to expect decent acting in any movie, especially one you have a vested interest in? Besides, Heath Ledger earned his posthumous Oscar for a dopey super hero movie role....so it just seems a bit disingenuous. Then again who really takes the Oscars seriously anymore anyway?

Didn't the director confirm on twitter that the movie was going to be under 100 minutes?

It'll be interesting to see where this film lands in the Rotten Tomato Meter.

TMNT 1990 = 45%
TMNT 2 1991 = 36%
TMNT 3 1993 = 27%
TMNT 2007 = 34%

Even so it's still an terrible move. I wonder how much story and other extra scenes were cut from this movie? It kind of frustrating when this could have easily been 2 hours. It also could have probably gotten higher ratings.

My prediction is around 40%.

with the 1st film having a higher rating at 45%, It'll be interesting to see if it can top that.

Yeah, someone is going to get short changed in the end. It will probably be Donny.

The fact that even the first film only has a 45% on rottentomatoes shows their bias against TMNT movies.

I can't stand critics who use snarky reasons like "Whoopi Goldberg is in this for some reason". And he said William Fichtner is one of the greatest badguys of all time but not in this movie? What other movie is a bad guy in, let alone IN. I only know him from The Dark Knight as the bank manager who yells "YOU AND YOUR FRIENDS ARE DEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAD". The main theme of every review, critic or regular viewer, that I've seen is that the Turtles are great in this. That's all I need to hear.

The fact TMNT III has 27% shows we shouldn't care what the scores are. TMNT III should be 0%.

That also neglects the "audience scores":
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: 81%
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: 68%
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: 35%
TMNT: 61%
Back then critics weren't ready for comic book movies then...and TMNT as a franchise was only 5 years old when the 1st film hit. There are variables. Now critics could be Turtle fans. I mean....I'm 30. If I could figure out how to make the leap to that career field, I'd totally do it.
