Dying Light Quick Review! Zombie Parkour!

2015 is here and one of the first games to come out that wasn’t a re-release and after multiple pushbacks and the cancellation of the Past Gen consoles Dying Light, a first person Survival Stealth, Horror-esc, parkour zombie game from the same people who made the Dead Island series. When I actually a few hours before writing this I had no idea they made the same game series and I didn’t know that going into playing Dying Light and as I played it more and more it’s nothing like the Dead Island games minus the Zombies and Weapon breaking systems Dying Light feels nothing like it’s and I was shocked at this. While Dead Island was fun to play with friends playing the single player campaign got really boring really really fast having felt like there was no clear sense of direction and the characters being about as interesting as a piece of cardboard. To my great surprise after playing hours upon hours of Dying Light I am still having a blast on the Single Player campaign and that’s not just the amazing parkour mechanics or the tension you feel when you’re running in the night away from the zombies or even sometimes in the Daylight when you want to avoid the zombies altogether but Dying Light actually kept me interested in its story! While a bit generic albeit with the military man going to a city that has a problem something happening to him and being saved by a resistance group and trying to blend in while still trying complete his mission but then being “torn” to do something. You play as Kyle Crane an Undercover Agent who goes to Harran Turkey where the Outbreak started and find Dictator Rais “Kadir” Sulaiman (try saying that three times fast) of course something goes and you end up getting bitten by a Zombie (Spoilers?) but it’s not like in the movies and other games where you automatically are turned into a zombie you have to take medication for hold off the inevitable and you’ll have seizures sometimes to remind you that your infected (Your body is a jerk). When you wake up in the safe house called “The Tower” you quickly learn that you’re #31 you are the 31st person to be bitten by a Zombie a bit strange but kind of cool and little cryptic! None the less it’s interesting and the characters make it even better throughout the game you’ll meet a lot of characters that have their own stake in it all and its all the same for everyone SURVIVE! It seems realistic in that aspect which I like and you’re the new guy and people at first are incredibly hard on you and mean but can you blame them? They have seen and been through so much!

The Gameplay- for Dying Light is totally where this game shines as I said running around and hoping from building to building is awesome and it’s so smooth and from my experience it wasn’t too much of a hassle or frustrating it just requires a lot timing and knowing what and where you want to go which again from my experience it just adds to the tension! I liked that! I am getting chased by Zombies and I have to think and time all of my movements if I make one small mistake I will get my face eaten off!? LETS DO IT! It just adds more tension to the already tension filled game, because when its night time you had better run! This was my favorite part of the game because I have never seen Zombies get so aggressive before usually they’re always somewhat docile and are just waiting to be slaughtered like Dynasty Warriors soldiers these Zombies DO NOT PLAY AROUND! I had and am still having an absolute blast playing this game and that is just the single player content! With most open world/survival games there is a crafting system that allows you craft different weapons/gear/health packs. With Dying Light the crafting system is easy and I like that its easy to see what you can actually create from the random items you find throughout the game. While like game like the Last of Us which didn’t allow you to pause the game to make a shiv or a health pack in Dying Light you can stop the action and create your gear or what have you. This doesn’t take away from the overall experience of the game I am still happy with its simplicity. The stealth is surprisingly good its not Metal Gear Solid status… (Metal Gear with Zombies I need that now!!) ANYWAY! You will sometimes want distract the Zombies in order to reach the objective mark and when you’re on the ground you may want to be quite or you have the option of just pummeling every Zombie you come in contact with (in the Daytime that is) and then go to your destination. It gives you options which is great because it doesn’t force you to play a certain way.
With the multiplayer you have a couple of options. You can both grab three of your friends and take on some Zombies or you can be a Zombie! Sort of similar to Resident Evil 6’s where you could do the same thing and invade a friends or someone’s game as one of those night Zombies, which was just fantastic! While not having a lot of time to play around with it all and not having well friends to play the game with I didn’t have as much fun as I would of if I had a couple of friends to enjoy it with. That’s what Developer Techland can do great they can make a game that is fun with your friends but with Dying Light they went both ways where the Single player is both enjoyable and entertaining enough to keep a person interested in and having fun with their mechanics and fairly interesting story!

Controversy and Verdict- Now this game has had a ton of “Hype” and I was one of the few people weren’t into it because nothing about the game really interested me I could have cared less about it to be honest and almost didn’t even buy it. I ended up pre-ordering it at my local GameStop and I begrudgingly put $5 down it still unsure if I was even going to pick it up because after the bland year 2014 was for gaming I was skeptical for this release and was probably going to pick it up on a sale or a pre-owned copy. I watched countless people like AngryJoe or TheRadBrad play their Early Access copies and not that their commentary was bland or boring but I just didn’t care for it. The game looked bland and I felt I wasn’t going to get a lot of enjoyment and to add on I have never been a big fan of Zombie anything because that sub-genre can’t hold my attention for more than 3 hours and that’s being generous! However Dying Light is holding my attention and it’s given me some hope for the Zombie Sub-Genre if the games continue to be as fun as this game is! Dying Light is how I felt before I bought Destiny I saw a ton of gameplay for it and I didn’t care for it and I just decided to pre-order it and decided to get it the day it came out and played the crap out of it and instantly fell in love with it and can’t get enough of it! Which is why I am giving Dying Light an-
8.5 Crazy Parkour Zombies out of 10!
+Fun addicting gameplay
=Cliché story
-Not too many multiplayer modes
+Innovative way to reinvent Zombies
=Simple crafting system that doesn’t take away from the overall experience but doesn’t add to the tension or suspense of the game

2015 is looking like a great year for video games! Its the PERFECT time to own a PS4, PC, or Xbox One!

Intersteller Quick movie REVIEW #2!

                     Rage, rage, rage against the dying of the light!

Interstellar- directed by Christopher Nolan whom a lot of people will know from the Batman/Dark Knight series. I not being too much of a fan of those movies for “Fan-Boy” reasons but that’s for another time! I just wanna focus on Interstellar and how its my favorite movie if 2014! That’s right! Unless a movie comes out in the next few months that is as superb and has me on the edge of my seat for 3HOURS!!! Keeps my attention, makes me cry, and is just an overall thrill ride Interstellar is my movie of the year!

NOTE: I’m only going to lightly go over the plot without giving too much away because its all really interesting but by the end you’ll be confused… Just like any other Nolan movie!

The earth is dying and we need to find a new home so the human race doesn’t die out! Cooper the main character (played by Matthew McConaughey) plays a Farmer/Engineer who sets out with a group of people from NASA Brand (Anne Hathaway) Doyle(Wes Bentley) Romilly  (David Gyasi) all being guided by Professor Brand (Michael Caine) to search for another Planet for the people to live on! While some have their own motives for attending this dangerous expedition some do it because they have nothing to lose (I apologize if this is extremely vague but I really want those who have not seen it to experience the plot in its entirety with it being fresh and there’s a big part that helps with them traveling to other planets)

In the movie as it was made abundantly clear that they will travel to different planets in order to search for a suitable place for Humans to live. The crew will travel to multiple planets and while they seem bland they are unique in their own way, some are extremely dangerous and, on some time is of the essence! Each planet is done so well done presenting itself with a new challenge that the crew must overcome and seeing how they handle each situation is both realistic and at times nerve racking!


I just have to say Matthew McConaughey is PHENOMENAL! His delivery is… Out of this World! (get it? Sorry don’t stop reading) his character is believable and his dialogue is never forced or feels awkward it always feels genuine! Its not just him though! Every Actor’s/Actress’s delivery is top notch! Even the little girl who plays Cooper’s daughter is just amazing! Aside from Matthew McConaughey Murphy (played by McKenzie Foy) she really plays up the daughter who doesn’t want their Dad to leave and she doesn’t even know if he’s coming back and you will definitely see that pain and hurt throughout the movie and its very believable. I love their interaction with each other it actually felt like they were really Father and Daughter! Which is something I haven’t felt/seen in a long time at a movie!

Okay so as good as this movie is its not without its problems and while they are few they are the kinda problems that will make you scratch your head and begin to over think things and then sort of break the movie (in a manner of speaking) but its not really a “Bad” thing its just not explained and that’s kind of Nolan’s style he let’s you think and really whatever you come up with is essentially plausible! Like the ending of the Dark Knight: Rises some say Batman died others say he didn’t, despite the (spoilers) end where Alfred sees Bruce and Selena eating brunch. Did it actually happen? Or is Alfred finally going crazy?

All in all Interstellar is an awesome movie and is the best 3hours I’ve spent in a movie theater it was s thrilling experience and I would say its one of Nolan’s best films! That’s why I give INTERSTELLAR 9.7 BLACK HOLES out of 10!!

Strong points
+Stellar Acting
-Confusing later on in the movie
+Gripping story
+Good Character development

The Grandmaster ForeignMovie Fridays! #1

KUNG FU is not a circus Act!

In recent years we have been getting really awesome action movies with good stories as well! For instance more recently X-men Days of Future Past, Avengers, Man of Steel, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Raid 2 and the Raid Redemption to name a few of my personal favorites! Usually its we have to sacrifice one for the other either we get great action but a lackluster story or Vice Versa, but I really feel like despite its less than stellar reviews that “The Grandmaster” is one of the best and most best looking and well done action movies to come out in the last few years.


Directed by Kar Wai Wong who is known for his movies “In the mood for Love”  “My Blueberry Nights” and “2046” The Grandmaster taking place in 1920s and onward follows Ip Man (Played by Tony Leung)  narrating his life and often comparing his life to Four Seasons and the people he has come in contact with throughout his life and all of the tragedies  Now compared to the Donnie Yen Ip Man movies this Ip Man adaptation delves more into the various styles of Martial Arts and the Philosophy of them more so than the other Ip Man movies did. That is one of this movies strong points because it shows how martial arts is more than just beating someones face in (which happens a lot in The Grandmaster) but you also get to know the thought process in them and you get to see just how much precise and gentle footwork, hand motions etc…

The movie may be in all Chinese and have Subtitles galore but you can still tell and see how well it is acted out by each actor! They all have their own struggles or demons they are facing or must overcome and in one case embracing! That’s another thing The Grandmaster does really well is that it doesn’t just focus on Ip Man but more so on those around him and how they impacted him and his Martial Art. Even a character as small as the Barber actually worked and made the character Ip Man even more interesting. I actually felt for a lot of the characters. The person who stole the show for me was Ziyi Zhang who you may know from movies such as “Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon” “Hero” “Rush Hour 2” and “House of the Flying Daggers” She plays Gong Er who is sort of like Ip Man pseudo love interest but because (SPOILERS) of her vows she made they never become anything. She was such an amazing character she had so much style, grace, and power it made a lot of the other characters look like they were barely doing anything. When they said she never lost a fight it was believable! My favorite scene again (SPOILERS) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Tk44p0tLlg) I had to rewind it multiple times because its not only awesome but extremely well done!

Kar Wong has very unique style of directing, every shot has a high level of care and intensity that adds to what is going on in the scene and while the action was very fast paced I was never left saying wait what the heck just happened… I’m looking at you Transformers! Whenever I would rewind it, it would be because something amazing just happened! They do have these Matrix esc slow down moments that add another layer to the martial arts action that is going on.

Many times throughout the movie I found myself wanting pick up a controller and just start mashing buttons because you really won’t see this kind of action but in a video game! Someone should really make a game out of this!

Now as much as I could praise this movie for being The Best Realistic Martial Arts movie to come out in the year the movie isn’t without its fault really I could only find 1 but its kind of a big one! Its sometimes will jump around without giving any clear sort of context and it would take me a minute or two to realize “Oh they went to the past… Okay!” I just wish they would really just say “Hey this takes place Five years ago!” Other than that this was a Fun, Exciting, Action Packed Martial Arts movie that can be appreciated by anyone who loves a good action martial arts movie or just want to find something to watch! I would definitely recommend watching The Grandmaster!

*There is also a nice little cameo in the movie to Martial Arts fans *

You can find The Grandmaster on Netflix, Amazon, YouTube or a host of other places its definetly worth checking out! Which why I give “The Grandmaster”

9 Bruce Lee Screams out of 10

+ Amazing Action

– Odd Transitions

+ Well Acted

– A little Convoluted

+ Its a ton of Fun!

Dragon Ball Xenoverse BETA Review



The newest Dragon Ball game Dragon Ball Xenoverse  is here… Well kind of in the form of a BETA to a few lucky people and I just happen to be one of them! Now I will say unrelated to DBX I love it when game companies release a BETA test to the people to play and give feedback and improve the game upon the feed back from the people! I wish game companies would do this more often!

So just a recap this Years Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z was CRAP!! The only thing good about that game was the 4v4 matches while it was awesome in theory it was the terrible and headache inducing gameplay made it a terrible experience! I am a huge DBZ fan and I was excited for the game I thought it was going to be like my number 1 favorite DBZ game Dragon Ball Z: Idainaru Dragonball Densetsu a title that only came out in Japan for the PSX and Sega Saturn. It was true to the Anime but also at the same time the player had a albeit limited freedom to complete the story! For instance if you wanted to have Krillin beat Frieza you could do that! As crazy as that sounds you could do it or if you wanted to kill both Krillin and Piccolo while fighting Frieza and when you select your next character you’ll find that Goku went Super Saiyan there’s so much more to the game that made it awesome and one of the most true DBZ experiences and I still play the game to this very day! IN FACT The last two Dragon Ball Z games have just been garbage! While Ultimate Tenkaichi was more playable and more enjoyable than Battle of Z they both are still LAZY pieces of crap and just terrible cash ins on the Dragon Ball Z license! BUT Does Dragon Ball Xenoverse hold high promise for the Dragon Ball game future? Find out on the next paragraph of the Dragon Ball Xenoverse BETA Review!!

indedxindedxDRAGON STARTindedxindedx

So you boot the game up agree to the User Agreement connect to the Server and create your save file you then you get to create your own character! As of right now for the BETA you just can make Namekian and Male of Female Saiyan! Now unlike Dragon Ball Z Ultimate Tenkaichi’s Chracter creator Dragon Ball Xenoverse promises to have more than 400 customizable items and already from the Saiyan Character I made it was already more expansive and interesting with just the Hair alone! I may have spent 30mins creating the best BETA Dragon Ball Character. I am looking forward to making the perfect character when the game finally comes out!

indedxindedxindedxDRAGON GAMEPLAYindedxindedxindedx

No matter how you slice it about 99% of the Dragon Ball games are Fighting Games and Xenoverse’s combat system is Amazing! It’s frantic, fast paced, and most importantly FUN and not tedious its easy to pick up and just have a fun time but it also gets a lot deeper with chaining Ki attacks and disappearing moves! (Which are finally back!) for the more hardcore fighting fans which is fantastic so its really awesome to see that they are catering to both hardcore fans and the causal ones! (Fun fact: The same people who made the Budokai series are actually helping if not developing this game!) So knowing that I at least went into the game with an open mind and an incredibly sour taste in my mouth from what Battle of Z left! You can 1v1 matches 2v2 and 3v3 and Xenoverse does all of them very well and somehow makes it still feel solid and not frustrating (Unlike Battle of Z) Also in game transformations are back! It seems like they are taking everything thats awesome about the Dragon Ball Z games and everything that past Dragon Ball games did absolutely wrong and making them better and putting them into Xenoverse… And I’m okay with that! I played about 5 online matches and for the most part it was all stable there was only one time where I experienced lag but it quickly corrected itself and it was back to high flying action! The best way I can describe the gameplay overall is Budokai 3 and Infinite World mixed with Budokai Tenkaichi 3’s scope of the battlefield and the speed of the combat!

indedxindedxindedxindedxDRAGON HUBindedxindedxindedxindedx

The HUB basically where it becomes sore of an MMO type deal in you take your character you go around and connect with other players, do versus matches, etc its an interesting thing and I am excited to see where the full release of the game! Not too much to this place its of course I imagine where a lot of the plot is going to take place what with the story taking a Days of Future Past kind of route but I am glad to see something new and fresh all together from a Dragon Ball game that always had you fighting the same villains since Dragon Ball Z: Kyôshū! Saiyan back in 1990! How they have been able to beat that dead horse for more than 20 years is beyond me! But hey there have been some really awesome DBZ games!

indedxindedxindedxindedxindedxDRAGON BETA PROBLEMSindedxindedxindedxindedxindedx

I am going to be real now the only problem I have with this BETA is the Server because its 70% of the time under maintenance and thats fine I get it! The game is in BETA and they are working hard probably around the clock to give an amazing Dragon Ball experience so thats fine its really my only gripe and I just let it go and I will play something else while I wait for it to be good to go!

indedxindedxindedxindedxindedxindedxDRAGON VERDICTindedxindedxindedxindedxindedxindedx

Even though this is just the BETA I am stoked for this game it restored my confidence in Dragon Ball Z games after the Past two I am so going to pre-order this game and pick it Day-One its going to be worth it! Will Dragon Ball Xenoverse actually be the best thing come from a Dragon Ball game? Or will it fail like its predecessors? Find out in Earyl 2015 when the game is released!

I give The BETA for Dragon Ball Xenoverse a 9.5 Dead Yamcha’s out of 10!

+Awesome Fast Paced gameplay

+Easy to Pick Up Hard to Put Down

-Server Troubles -no big deal though-

+Good stable connection that doesn’t conflict with Gameplay

Gotham “Pilot” Quick Review


Alright I admit I was worried about Gotham even though I am huge DC fan I was skeptical on a show about freaking Commissioner Gordon who is a character I could care less for don’t know why I just don’t care for him!

Somewhat Spoilers ahead… Somewhat!

So the show opens up with Catwoman (Catgirl? CatPreTeen?) walking through the streets of Gotham stealing milk and a guys wallet and then giving it to a cat in an Alleyway speaking of Alleyway we get to see a scene that has been done to death… (Too soon?)  But what I did like about this scene of Bruce Wayne’s parents being killed is that there was a lot more emotion and I actually felt for Bruce which I don’t think I have ever really cared about it in past movies maybe its because I just wanted it to get to the Batman Part but maybe knowing Batman isn’t going to be in this I can just focus on whats going on in the scene.

Gotham also conveyed the true essence of what the Streets of Gotham would be like (Even though brief) its literally a crime infested place and I love it and I hope we get to see more of that as the series progresses!

Every character in this show in this show is awesome! They all have their own motives others and they don’t over shadow the main plot and those characters don’t overshadow others if anything they actually enhance and complement them and make their performances more believable and the show itself even more awesome! The true star of the show is of course Jim Gordon (Benjamin McKenzie) its his Origin Show so its really gonna all come back to him in one way or another and it actually works because he truly em-body’s what a young Gordon dealing with a bunch of crooked cops and being the only good one would be like Righteous, strong, and cunning!

They hinted at a bunch of possible side story-lines and possibly future main story-lines and they were subtle as to not distract from what was going on in the main plot what with the relationship between Barbara and Montoya or maybe even a Solomon Grundy episode!?

Overall I feel really optimistic about Gotham its action is solid the story is awesome, the characters are believable and it has real potential and a great future! I would love to see a Spin off Batman show perhaps when the show ends! The show overall seems awesome and I’m excited to see future episodes I can’t wait to see where they actually go with all this! I just wish DC would get a lock on their movies like they do with their TV shows!

I give GOTHAM: 9 Character Easter Eggs out of 10

If you like comic book shows or movies watch this! If you like DC you probably already watched it! If you like crime shows watch this! Its got a little something for everybody!

Gotham is like Sopranos with DC Comics… And that’s okay!




      Destiny has finally released across all major console platforms. The game has been been through quite a lot from Push backs to servers being down for the BETA release. Now its finally out! And let me tell you it is probably the best game to be released after the lie of 2014 in Gaming! But does the game have enough content in it to last Destiny’s Ten Year plan for the game? If you’ve played it you already know if you haven’t and are teetering on buying the game and spending $60+ dollars on this game and want to know if you should buy it, Read on!

Short Answer is…. YES you should buy it forget what critics say honestly! You really should if you have a PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, or Xbox One this is a must buy for any platform! But I’m sure you wanna know why you should buy this game! Right!?

You play as a “Guardian” a character you create from the 3 available classes Titan, Hunter, and Warlock and then you choose from 3 other Races Human, Awoken, and a Robot there may not be too much customization to the character at the start but throughout the you will get different pieces of armor that you will be able to make your character look both awesome and protect you from your enemies! Once you’ve gotten your character just how you like it you begin the game!

        When you begin you’re dead and then brought back to life by Peter Dinklage none the less! Well he’s your “Ghost” he’s your Navi, Cortana, or Angel! Throughout the game he will lead and guide you and give you a narrative of the story and what’s going on and what The Fallen who you will mowing down wave after wave!


        The Gameplay is where Destiny shines! Its tight and responsive the controls are familiar to just about any other First Person Shooter game so anyone who has played at least two of them will feel right at home! A smart decision in my opinion because instead of learning new controls players can easily jump right in and enjoy all that Destiny’s gameplay has to offer! Which basic at its core is but as you go through the game you’ll learn that the gameplay is surprisingly deep and most importantly FUN!! (Which is in my opinion something that was sorely lacking in this years line of games)


Here is a breaking point for some buyers, the game always requires an internet connection so if you are an Xbox or PS4 owner you’ll need their respective Online gaming membership services BUT if you’re a PS3 owner its all free! While that may seem like a turn off to some the always online actually works and works very well with Destiny if youre doing the main campaign you may or may not run into someone who is the same level or higher who is doing the same thing or is just there to help newcomers who may not be too good. Doing this Bungie was able to create an experience that is awesome and rewarding to all players.

The World!

        You will go throw different parts various worlds for whatever mission you choose from Earth to the Moon, Mars, Mercury, and Europa while I would have loved for this aspect to have been more like Skyrim in where I can just explore the vast worlds and just gone around doing whatever I wanted! Even though I can’t do this and it feels like a more linear experience you will definitely get a lot of loot and XP during these missions! So they somehow found a good balance! I still would have loved to explore Mars though but I had fun with multiple missions I had on it!

Leveling up!

      Like most games that involve some sort of questing you’re character will level up! I will say that Leveling Up your character(s) in Destiny feels great! It feels like you’ve earned that Level Up and with it a new ability! Leveling doesn’t feel like a chore or like you’re just going through the motions just to get another ability like in most games out today! You’ll want to keep on leveling and may even forget how much time has passed!

The Social World…

     When you’re not fighting the Falleb you can visit the Social Hub where all the Hunters go to buy new guns get bounties, Side quests and more! Instead of the more action oriented First Person perspective you will be able to see your character in a Third Person perspective and see what your Guardian looks like there isn’t much to this world aside from the social aspect of it. Although you will spend a little bit of time there every now and again!


Unlike Destiny’s main campaign where it is cooperative multiplayer Destiny’s Crucible is where the Competitive Multiplayer comes into play. In this you have Control, Rumble, Skirmish, and Clash. At the core they are your standard multiplayer modes that you have seen before while they may not add anything new to the fray what I really liked is that the weapons you got while playing the main campaign are the weapons you use in them there aren’t any pre-set lead outs like in other shooters it boils down to what you’ve been using in the game! I find this both Really Cool and a LITTLE Bad. Really cool because if you have grown accustomed to using a certain Pulse Rifle you get to use that in the campaign you will get to use it in The Crucible. Bad because that Pulse Rifle can have an Fire element ability and an attack of 84 you get to use that against a person with rifle with an attack of 34 so the person with the better weapon has a better advantage agasint the other person but then it can come down to the other persons skills because its possible for that player with the 34 atk can get a few kills on the person with the 84 Pulse Rifle by using everything in their available arsenal from grenades to abilities like the Knife throw it can be done just requires a little bit of wit and thinking which is awesome!


         While a lot of critics may not like the game or think Destiny is Average at best or whatever! I can as person who SELDOM buys brand new games the day they come out and will just wait for a price drop or a used Copy at GameStop or ask for it for a Christmas present or borrow it from a buddy who doesn’t play it anymore I can HONESTLY say Destiny is one of the few games of the year that is worth the $60 asking price its so much FUN! It has already provided me with 20+ hrs of content and playing it through the past week the game hasn’t grown dull or boring it continues to be a truly fun gaming experience and I really recommend that YOU go out and pick up a copy if you have any gaming console! You won’t be disappointed! I would even say that Unless Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain come out in 2014 Destiny is Sure contender for Game of The Year!

That is Why I’m giving 9.5 DEAD GURDIANS OUT OF 10!

Teenage Mutant Megan Fox Amazing Spider Man Nina Turtles (I’ll get around to reviewing this movie review/rant #1)


 Well… I saw Teenage mutant ninja turtles after taking my sweet time to see this movie I tricked my friend into seeing it instead of seeing Guardians of The Galaxy (why? I have NO IDEA) first off I will say every bad thought I had about Turtles and them being crazy  looking or whatever I take back! The turtles are awesome! When they are on screen its just the best! The way they interact with each other is probably the best I’ve seen in any Turtles movie adaptation or even some cartoons!

I went into this movie Optimistic I’m not the biggest fan of the Turtles I like them I think they are really cool! So to be fair I erased all Prior TMNT cartoons and movies from my mind!

Sitting through the first part the movie is almost unbearable! Why? Because the TURTLES ARE BARELY IN IT! The parts they are in are awesome but its like the feeling you get when your about to sneeze and you don’t and you’re just left with that lingering feeling like “Oh yeah that sneeze was gonna be good now its gone deal with it!” That’s multiple times of the first part of the movie! When the movie finally decides to let the Turtles have their movie they can’t have it all just yet because MEGAN FOX!! This is the Megan Fox and The Turtles just kinda happen to be there movie! Don’t get me wrong I think Megan Fox is a very pretty woman, but her acting skills :{ I wanted her to be good in this movie I REALLY did because I like the movies I spend Money on I want everything to be the best! I will say she didn’t ruin it she just made it VERY VERY VERY VERY CONVENIENT!! Not just her character but just about everything about this movie was convenient from the random  Ninjutsu book ending up in the sewer to Splinter somehow having all those weapons oh that’s right Plot! Who throes away a Ninjutsu book and weapons? I’ll tell you who Mr. Plot and Ms. Script! That’s besides the point!

When the turtles finally get to have more of their movie it gets pretty awesome! They look so good in action it almost felt like they were real! Seeing them just man handle the “Foot” Clan was just hilarious and one of the highlights of this movie!

The “villains” of the movie Shredder and Eric Sacks (who was originally planned to be Shredder but because crazy fanboys he was just some random dude who just so happened to be connected to the Turtles and Apirl O’Neil (who would have thought) So Shredder and Eric have a plan to release a toxin into New York City harming the… People and the company….. Where have I seen this before!? Hmmm I remember the movie not being too “Amazing” I remember also while watching it I squashed a “Spider” and said “Man” that was gross! I can’t remember where I saw that from…

Anyway! The Villains were lame Shredder looked like Transformer who didn’t make the cut! And that’s not Shredder he had very simple armor and was a more superior fighter then the Turtles and I for one think it would have been more cool if he just had Simple armor and he could still wreck them but he was also on the defense because the turtles were stronger than him!  That would have made him more intimidating then just a giant suit! You could also tell that there were some re-shoots because in an interview William Fitchner said he was going to be Shredder and at first I was confused but it could have been food especially with the back story he had! How he grew up in Japan and was trained by a Sensei and watching it I was thinking oh man this could he really awesome!! I want him as Shredder! He always plays a good villain! In this not so much it was almost like they were supposed to have Baxter Stockman in the movie and they just got rid of him and have those lines to Eric Sacks and put some new lines for the Shredder (who may or may not be Oroku Saki or Oroku Nagi never explained only reaffirming mw that they just threw him in there. Honestly They should have stuck to their guns and just ran with it! In my opinion)

I’m getting a headache… Time to end this!

Look This wasn’t a bad movie… If you’re a kid if you see this “TURN YOUR BRAIN OFF!” The second half of the movie was fun! Like really good if they just shown the second half it would have been that much better! I wished they focused less on Megan Fox and a lot more on the Turtles because every scene they were in was GOLD! I also find this a Problem with movies like these with these Extraordinary characters like in Transformers! They focused WAY TOO MUCH on the humans! I’m sure a lot of people don’t care about the humans and wanna what the movie is about and not the humans… Maybe it us just me and I’m complaining this… Ugh! I just wanted this movie to be great all around! Its hard to rate this movie because it was both bad and Good and above average…

I give this movie a 7.5 convenient ninja books out of 10!
-The movie as a series has GREAT potential the Turtles are amazing I wished they would have had a bit more screen time.

-The story was weak and riddled with plot holes

-The humans in the next movie either need to be Interesting, Better actors, or have so little screen time compared to the Turtles!

This is how I think the ending of the movie should have gone if Eric Sacks was Shredder.

After Eric Sacks returns to his home defeated by the Turtles someone is in Main Room it the Oroku Saki he’s like “You couldn’t even handle a few Turtles!? You are no student of mine!” Then Shredder kills him and tells him “You are of no use to our plan!” You then open the door to a whole bunch of new possibilities within the TMNT universe!
That’s just me though haha!

I’ll get around to seeing a better movie! Until next time!!
