Even though the new animated Batman vs Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles isn’t going to be here on DCU any time soon, I thought it’d be nice to have a discussion thread for it. (Mods: if I somehow missed an already existing thread, please feel free to banish this one.)
My thoughts: Absolutely fantastic. Again, DC Animation knocks it out of the park, both exceeding and subverting my expectations. Stunning fight choreography, surprising twists and perfect character work. Great dialogue voiced by talented actors. The story was based on the first B/TMNT mini-series, but I’ve not read it yet, so I’m not sure how closely it hewed to the original. If only I’d realized that James Tynion IV was involved, I’d have added it to my list sooner!
I just can’t say enough good things about this movie. I had pretty low expectations going in, but it really surprised me, hitting me right in the feels with a balance of humor and action and…
… gah, I sound like the lovechild of a gushing fanboy and a marketing campaign.
Just see it. It’s worth your time.
