The 10 Biggest Criticisms of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Reboot

TMNT Reboot

The origin story is somewhat altered

When Bay spoke of initial plans for his movie and the potential of giving the heroes an extraterrestrial origin, fans, including some of the cast of the original 1990 film, were in an uproar. If the turtles were to be given an alien heritage, the entire mythology would have to be altered completely. Kevin Eastman, co-creator of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film, did admit the ooze that altered Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo, Raphael and Splinter does have an alien origin, but thankfully Bay listened to the fans and decided to stay true to the story that everyone knows…after we buried him on the forums. Though there will be adjustments to the origin story that involves the characters of April’s father and Eric Sachs.

    The moron that wrote this article? You’re wrong lol. There is a small minority of whinny bitchy fanboys living in their little closed minded fanboy bubbles. Step out of your cave and look around. Twitter, Facebook and other social media sites these days.. TMNT fans cant WAIT to see this. Even the whinny bitches will be in line on opening day. It was just shell shock “pun intended” at first bc its now 20 years later and it’s time for something fresh. This will be a HUGE success regardless of the small group of detractors.
    There will be lots of sequels. Bc EVERY SINGLE TIME some bitch critic bets against TMNT.. they’ve bet wrong. Have a great day. Cant wait for august 8th. It’s going to be ” foot in your mouth” day.

      The writer never said anything about how people aren’t going to see this. The article is about how this movie is setting itself up for failure because of the decisions that have led it to what it is now. This movie is making the same mistakes that the Last Airbender made; weak cast, lousy visual effects, the story being mutilated etc. People are going to see this movie, myself included and probably the writer too, but this movie has extremely high potential to be a very bad movie. That is something even you have to understand. That is what this article is about IMO.
