It's way too early to tell at this point, but I have a good feeling about this one. Hopefully they're getting away from the ridiculosity of the second and third TMNT movies, which were just terrible. If they're faithful to the Eastman/Laird comics, this could be fantastic.
In any cast, the animation looks great and it looks like they got the right balance of humor and grittiness going.
Thanks to Doihaveaname? for the custom avatar!
It does look promising. For awhile I was worried about there not being any humor, what with all the ninja action sequences, but as soon as Mikey went missing I knew the funny would start very soon ;D I am sad that Shredder won't be in it. But I'm happy to read that they're making a tie-in video game. The Konami TMNT games were my favorites as a young'un.
Now if you don\'t mind, I am somewhat preoccupied telling the laws of physics to shut up and sit down.
They're turtles in a half-shell and they're green!
I don't know about you, but I always loved the turtles. It doesn't matter if the movie ends up rubbish, just as it doesn't matter if the Transformers movie ends up rubbish. I'm going to watch them both with the love and respect that they deserve!
Eh, I never liked TMNT. But, the movie may be good...
"'There aren't any beginnings,' Burton said. 'Nor any ends.
It seems to me that man has engaged in a blind and fearful struggle out of
a past he can't remember, into a future he can't foresee nor understand.
And man has met and defeated every obstacle, every enemy except one.
He cannot win over himself.'"

DUuuuuuuuuuuuude! Can it be March 30th NOW? Cause that'd be .................AWESOME!!!! I like the last part with Leonardo (I hope I got the name correctly) Came up with his swords.....and then Mikey falling in the dumpster......it looks like a happy movie......and by happy I mean freaking sweet.
I think you will be able to tell how good it will be once it gets rated. If it gets PG then they went the kiddie route and I don't think it will be that great. If it gets PG-13 then it went the darker route, and it will be awesome.

Just when you think your flamethrower is foolproof you have to do something stupid like try to use it.
Wow. That is, imho, WAY too animated looking. The goal, from the industry professionals that I've talked to (I'm going into editing or visual effects...not quite the modeling/animation that made up most of this, but close), is the illusion of reality. And... yeah. No. Spins are way too tight and fast for us to even imagine that they're possible, the buildings are missing something, and things just don't feel right.
That having been said, I'll probably be outside the theater at midnight when it comes out. But I hope this is just something they put out to show us they're working on it, and not final product.
Final answer: E if you're a TMNT fan, and B if you're not.
it's not necissarily a bad show...
But like the pokemon series and such. It's gotten a little too far. To think "oh, i'm showing this to my 6 year old kid" (no, i'm not a mom, but i'm thining in one's perspective right now) It's kinda violent for that age in my oppinion. THen again...playing Baulder's Gate II (DA) with my 5 year old cousin as she goes about as the barbarrian laughing and killing everything in sight...I think that it's not that bad. The new episodes of pokemon just plain *bleep* bottoms!
