OT season 1 has a brief moment where Michelangelo cries when Kala is leaving, but there are many moments littered throughout the show where the OT turtles shed a few tears.

Either way, I have no issue with the turtles of any incarnation crying as long as its done in moderation.

Shredder could've done more than blow up the Channel Six building. I don't mean as far as murdering Splinter, but think of the possibilities if censors were not an issue.

Shredder and Krang combined had the biggest arsenal of any villains in all of the cartoons.

Nope. Watched the credits through to the bitter end, nothing.

Apparently Rat King was supposed to be the villain for a later season, had they gotten to do it.

That's good to know. I haven't got around to watch it yet but I always forget to watching through the credits when it comes to TV shows. Also, curious to know if the pacing is as spastic as the series because I don't know if I can take an hour of a half of that style.

well, it was better than the pilot. I'll give it that. It took me three tries to be able to finish that mess.

as far as this one - WTF does April have to say her name just about everytime on screen? Too remind folk that, yeah, this black person is really the red head you grew up with?

- That mystery stuff she stole from the lab. never explained what it was, and never seen again after it was used.

-The Turtles getting mystic powers isn't a bad idea in and of itself. but unlike in 4kids, they didn't earn these powers. they where given them and mikey's ability just sort of 'happened'. no build up, no training.


- how do they have the money to build that huge ass tank?

this thing still has the flaws of the show, but at least it felt watchable.

You can literally apply this question to every TMNT cartoon where they have a truck/car/van. It's obvious they salvage junkyard parts and build it together as always.

Again, it is explained what the stuff she stole was. It was an experimental herbicide, she literally says what it is right before she steals it. I'm not sure why people try to claim it was unexplained, it clearly was.

There is an explanation for what the tank is in the show, not a terribly intelligent one, but there is an explanation.
Spoiler:
It's a prop from an old Sci-Fi show they stole and it may or may not be a legitimate piece of alien technology.

Not exactly rock solid but I'm honestly not sure why the Party Wagon, Turtle Blimp, Shellraiser or any other tacked on vehicles the previous cartoons shoehorned in would be more OK than this thing. Just to be clear, the Turtles should have any bombastic combat vehicles at all, it's just selective to point out that it's stupid here while ignoring that it's in all the other cartoons as well.

tturtle van and blimp where clearly stolen from baxters lab. all the stuff they used to build them was there, so they didn't need money.

In 2K3, they used a warehouse of parts abandoned to build the battle shell.

That's not really the point, the point is that there is an explanation and it isn't really a particularly worse explanation than what previous cartoons gave us.

Just got done watching both Season 1 and the movie off of Netflix. Unfortunately I didn't know there was a Season 2 before I saw the movie, so I still have to watch that.

But what I saw was really good. The 1st Season had what I was really craving from a 'new' TMNT iteration, which was fun new original mutants, a change up of the original formula, and just as awesome, no cameos or crossovers with Fred Wolf Turtles. If there are homages, they are small and all iterations get them.1st season to me was actually fun, I actually laughed at some of the jokes, and I haven't done that in a long time.

The movie itself was a blast. Wonderful visuals, and quite dark. Something I enjoyed seeing, the dark to balance out the humor, so the movie didn't end up too silly. I hope we get more of this kind of TMNT, because I think it would work well.

Finally got around to watching and I'm really impressed. Leo was the definitely the MVP of this series and the movie highlights that. His character arc here was great. I like that it wasn't afraid to go darker and this version of Krang was extra creepy. Great use of Casey Jones as well. Not to mention the action was on an epic scale. And of course, it still had a lot of humor but it was much better balanced here.

Leo: "If this isn't the poster shot, someone's getting fired."

I kinda feel bad for the Foot Clan guys though. They have terrible taste in picking leaders. First the Shredder and now the Krang.

Season 2 has a lot stronger eps than the first, and the 3 part finale is just as good or better than this movie. I definitely recommend the end of Season 2 if you like what you saw.

THAT WAS AN AWESOME MOVIE!!! The animation, the action, the stakes, it was even darker than the 1990 film. And CASEYYYY!

Only cons to me were Don and Mikey really getting on my nerves with his mcu tension-breaking quips.

Krang was straight up incredible. I loved how his mech was a hollowed out corpse of a creature, you could see it’s jaw move whenever he fought. I really expected them to turn him into a huge joke villain and i’m so glad they didn’t.

I dont understand why so many people here are so hesitant to praise it. The shows dead anyway, what’ll it cost you?

Season 3 most likely won’t happen, but this would be a damn good ending, it was all surprisingly emotional.

If this movie just had a touch more seriousness, it’d have been perfect to me.

I wish Rise would’ve had the chance to go all the way with everything it planned (Rat King in this artstyle? Sign me up!). But if this is how it all ends, i’d be satisfied.

To me, this is the new second best Turtles film. Behind the obvious top spot.

I mostly agree with you, except I'd say that with the amount of body horror shown in the film, I'd say it is quite serious, it was like the rise turtles were facing a threat that the 2003 turtles would've dealt with, I kinda liked Mikey and Don's interactions, but their quips aren't for everyone, the Leo scene where it looked like he was about to die was quite shocking but tbh the shocking scene for me was the bit where it looked like Donatello was about to get melted/consumed by the krang.

As for people being hesitant to praise it, I assume it's because rise of tmnt is just not a tmnt iteration that they enjoy, whether it be due to the off-the-wall comedy, the character role changes, the fact it's just so different compared to previous iterations or the glaring bright colour palette, I mean the Fred wolf series had a lot of comical moments too but it wasn't as in your face as rise is,I like how each turtle iteration adjusts the characters a bit but everyone is gonna have their own preferences and opinions on how they like the characters to be portrayed, some like the turtles being fully serious and action-packed, some like them being silly, some like it to be a mix of the two, as for the colours, that's a colour theory/art style preference thing.

that said, I did really enjoy the movie.
