At risk of sounding like I'm trying to piss on the parade, I think I was turned off by what I felt were some weak jokes, and the typical subpar animation by DC, despite noticing a few cool shots of Batman. It seems like they did try to get creative, even with the limited animation budget, which is appreciated.

Seeing Raph draw blood definitely felt good. I'll give it another shot and let you all know what I think.

For reference, when it comes to TMNT animation, I apprecite the 2k12 show, quite a bit for it's mix of humor, action, and serialized storytelling. I find the 2k3 series admirable for it's attempt to be faithful to Mirage, but too sterilized and compromised to be fully enjoyable. I like the original cartoon for it's lighthearted attitude, quirky soundtrack, and irreverant humor, but I don't have much interest in watching it outside of nostalgia sake.

I don't have any real interest in "Rise...", "Turtles Forever", or even half the episodes of the series in which I do enjoy. So I'd say I'm not an easy sell when it comes to TMNT cartoons, but I'm also open to seeing different sides of the franchise.

I guess my initial write-off was based off the fact that it felt a bit like TMNT 2k3 to me. A series which, while I 100% appreciate what they were going for, was more frustrating than satisfying, for me, due to limitations with censorship, budget, and runtime.

Holy BatTurtles Batman!!!
This was seriously the best TMNT movie since the 1990 release. This movie has everything a turtle movie should have. Was dark, filled full of action, witty humor, and the plot was nasty awesome. Hope this continues, this was just gnarly.
I can't believe as huge of a turtle fan that I am that I just finished this movie this morning.

Going to the whole Batman vs Shredder scene I really enjoy the difference between Shredder and Batman's fighting style, both are masters of their craft but you notice Batman uses a lot of western martial arts and has more brawling aspects to his character while Shredder does more flips and is a bit more refined.

Batman fought in an interesting fashion in this one, mixing in martial arts, some brawling and using his gadgets a lot. I don't recall Batman mixing in his gadgets so often in his fights in other animated versions, in some ways I kinda felt he was 'cheating' a bit. I guess I wanted to see him fight Shredder and the Turtles in a more hand-to-hand fashion, with a few batarangs thrown in without overdoing it.

Agree with this statement. I felt as though his toys made the difference, but I also felt they made him look stronger than he should be as a martial artist. Maybe thats just me though

So Nicktoons is showing it Wednesday night 8pm; repeat Friday 5pm. I'm a little surprised given the level of violence and hope there isn't any complaint from parents who are caught off guard with that... Esp as the tv listing, at least the one I'm seeing, has it listed as PG, not the actual PG-13 rating. But I'm glad it may have a chance to be more widely seen.

If any parents complain, I hope it does not get used by Nick to say "See?! They only want kiddie stuff!" If anything belongs at 10:30 at night it's this, not 'Rise.' What is with these scheduling people.

I mean, I'm sure those scenes will edited out due to 'time limit constraint'. 'This has been edited for TV' and all that. Luckily the scenes with blood and whatnot are few and far between so you don't miss too much if they cut those out.

Yeah, got to thinking that, hopefully so. Though some of it is involved in places that might be hard to edit, but we'll see...

On the bright side, some of the deaths were kinda self-censored/implied. Like when Shredder impaled one of the security guards, yeah, you hear the sounds of blood spilling, but don't see a drop of it. The sound can be edited out easily.

Very true.

Hopefully the holiday timing, at least for the U.S. here, will get plenty of additional people discovering this gem, and increase support for a sequel. (And introduce some to the concept that the TMNT aren't always, and not always intended to be stuck as, "a kids thing.")

Sooo, that was NOT edited and pretty gutsy of Nick to show untouched. o.O

Granted I hadn't watched it again yet since it first came out, so maybe there were edits I didn't notice(?), but I doubt it... Ninja star star to the head, guy gouged through by Shredder, off camera guy vocally being killed... all there.

And this is repeating Friday at only 5pm? Erm... I mean, I love that a wider audience may get a chance to catch it, but that's a little surprising.

Did they keep that one character decapitated? I forget who did it, but either Shredder or Ra's Al Ghul slices off someones head off-screen, but you see the head roll on the floor.

If it was the guard that is decapitated and his head drops right to the side of the screen and his headless body falls over, yeah, that was in it too.


Damn Nick... did they not watch it before adding it to the schedule? We can't get a more mature series? But this, ah what the heck, lets just go for cartoon murder on the kid channel.

We already had 2k12 for the mature series and season 1 Korra ended with a murder suicide.

do christian groups still watch tv? If so they might complain and actually hurt chances of any future darker tmnt projects, if anything this might've been a bad thing for more mature tmnt.

Especially since Rise is also action oriented, they might just say "let's go full comedy for the next reboot".
