Except they weren't even really incompetant here. They did finish every job they were given, even if they got a little overzealous a couple of times. (IE firing the tank's gun in the plane and chasing after Casey.) They weren't especially bright, but they still got the job done. They might be a bit lacking in foresight though.

Bebop and Rockheady weren't even that bad. I thoughtthey were funny in OOTS But I hated them in FW, so annoying.

Their casting may be the most universally enjoyed aspect of the film. It's like asking if they should recast Wonder Woman.

Then they made the Archie series comics, which had the tone I was looking for, which was like the cartoon, only in a different direction.

You see, we all have a view of what TMNT is, some see the comics first cause they read the comics before it become a series, and others learned via the cartoon, and will always call back to that since it was there first exposure.

No matter what, the fandom is split in two.

there are fans that love Bebop and Rocksteady, and there are others that don't cause they are too goofy for them.

The IDW comics did a pretty good job with those characters.
Not everyone sticks to their first exposure. I for one was big into the show and video games in my youth, and these days am well into the "Mirage Supremacy" camp. Opinions can change, especially if you were basing them on not even knowing the alternative at all, as many people didn't even know the comics existed let alone that they were good.

I thought Bebop and Rocksteady were one of the highlights of the movie. There is some good stuff in this thing, but itís strung together with really weak writing. Rather than recast, or reboot etc. just spend more time on the script.

Same.

I still love all the kid stuff, but I have been enlightened, & in my world, Mirage reigns supreme.

Also same. Keep in mind, this was an assessment made by TigerClaw we're refuting here, and that he is an imbecile.

You really shouldn't disrespect imbeciles.

In the world of Mutant Turtles, Mirage is king.

I've kinda been on a TigerClaw hate spree after he shared that stupid IGN up at noon video where he praised the two jabronis for "getting" TMNT. The same video featured the phrase "Ninja Turtles has always been kind of polishing a turd".

He should be banned.

I said you shouldn't disrespect imbeciles; I never mentioned TC.
