5.0 out of 5 stars Best film i have seen other than Chappie, 10 Mar. 2015
This film is amazing brilliant effects excellent story. I loved it as much as my son was shocked when watching it how both children and adults reacted the same. Character development was done perfectly. It had emotional moments funny and sad and i can honestly see at least another film being released. Really recommend this for everyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great film except one character, 7 Feb. 2015
Well i liked this film as it added the twist of a realistic point of view if it was to happen in reality( don't worry i don't think this would or could happen). The reality is that they are teenagers and have the inexperience of life and problems that teenagers get. With that said i also like the height difference between them all which added for a natural selection process like they would have if kept in a tank or in the wild as you always get a big one in the group.

Action scenes made me smile as did the effects i thought it would look terrible but to my surprise it actually looks smooth and fits with the setting. I think i liked this more due to memories as a 10 year old watching it on tv but all the personalties of the turtles came across perfectly. Shredder was like he is now in the recent turtles i know this thanks to my son watching it. Splinter is still the wise and awesome master and trainer and again he wasn't changed from a man into a rat which was fun for a cartoon but is silly for the big screen adding the realistic flip to it. Every character in this film was pretty much the same is i remember from the cartoon but for one exception which is April o'neil why o why would you get megan fox to play this role. Yes she is pretty nice to look at but her acting and voice just get on my nerves she looks nothing like April should and the attempt to make her have some traits of April are a slightly yellow leather jacket shots that she wears. Im not expecting alot but April is a strong independent women megan fox to me doesn't seem like she would be able to handle working as a news reporter and i wouldn't buy into it her camera man Vernon Fenwick is like i remember he would laugh at her and always got caught in stupid situations so come on guys next movie no megan fox. so for this reason alone is why im giving it 4 not 5 stars. If you like megan fox and turtles then this is the film for you and you will find no faults.

5.0 out of 5 stars ... rate a film based on the bible it's a good film period, 31 Dec. 2014
People can't rate a film based on the bible it's a good film period. Visually impressive and good acting. I remember the story well as a kid and it's a film to entertain. Lots of films based on stories are never the same deal with it and as the bible is a great fantasy story it's a good watch in a film context. I'm sick of films based on something being slated due to religion or history. Both these things are hard to mix and get right. If a film Is good then it's good

1.0 out of 5 stars no stars should be allowed for this, 20 May 2014
This review is from: Push [DVD] (2009) (DVD)
rubbish never got into it watched it a second time to give it a chance. Even with a second helping it was terrible its like they cant decide if its action, supernatural or drama. Acting was poor and story too easy to figure out. It dragged on and on and had a let down of an ending as it kinda just ends. Bet Chris Evans is think thank you captin America for saving a career cause this was not his finest hour

1.0 out of 5 stars Do not waste your money, 31 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This will be short much like the game.
Im a huge fan of the games but this was an epic rip off i felt let down and expected much more for the price they asked for one level. The game is fun to play and the one map that you play the story and side mission on is fun to play but once done it becomes really boaring fast. You notice that your playing the same thing again and again. If this was cheaper say £5 it would be worth it. But all in all its a demo of what is yet to come from the phantom pain. But this could just be apart of the phantom pain. I love how they have changed the look and gameplay but this is awaste of money for what it is. All the hard core fans will defend it but im a hard core fan and feel like i have been robbed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cant see how anybody rates this lower than 4 star, 4 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
See this film in the cinema and well it's just awesome it has masses of depth to it amazing visuals and the fight scenes between superman and his rivals are just epic giving the grand scale of how powerless humans are in comparison. If you felt let down with the other franchise aka superman returns and quest for peace this film makes up for it.

Don't care about the 3D as it's something that only games should be connected to the film itself is epic that's why I bought it on blu ray. However that being said I took it to my mate's house to watch on his huge 3d screen and was impressed but another mate of mine said his was poor, this could be due to quality of them as one is worth £2000 the other £1000 plus they operate at completely different power outages that give off different frame rates and resolution.

I'm not bothered about extras as I'm from the age of vhs so I was brought up with just the film high definition is the best thing about films in this day and age so I'm happy with the film being as clear as possible :).
Back to the film as I said about depth you get to see krypton from another point of view and this time it looks like a whole planet rather than a crystal city in the middle of a planet. Has more of a believable take which was helped brought to life with the aid of.....OMG its Russell Crow.

The story has to follow the same path way as the comic as it does giving great potential for a different perspective from the directors take on the story.

Things that are different in this story are costumes they just look alien and better on so many levels. Many people have said the story between Louis lane and superman was not as good but if they make a sequel I can see this progressing. How his father Jonathan Kent dies and his father Jor-El die gives that little twist of how they die protecting a person who they love in different but the same way.

Human reactions towards superman are more realistic as humans by nature always fear what can't be explained or controlled. Unlike the original films where disaster happens and superman turns up to save the day and gets praised this is more about self-preservation in how revealing himself to a world that wouldn't be ready to accept him could go wrong. So the traits of batman, the amazing Spiderman and iron man on the law and government's reaction to a crime fighter or vigilantly apply but with fear as they could all be hunted down and killed if it came to it superman well let's face it he's most peoples favourite for the reason that he can't be harmed.

Right I have said all good points so guess I will add some things that bug me as it's only fair because no film is perfect will list them as points to take notes of if you watch:).

*How does superman have a tailored suit for him when he's a man when he left krypton 100s of years before?

*When superman takes on other krypton folk surely they would hurt him better yet surely his suit would get torn to shreds.

*Superman was born and raised on a farm and takes on a small squad of highly trained warriors and punches his way through them as they do with him erm really?

*The materials used on the alien ships would have radioactive properties on them from krypton's minerals and would cause superman to get funky on them or just going near them as he has never been near it since a baby.

*When superman sets off a beacon how do the krypton warriors get to earth that fast when it took superman well let's say a pretty long time at the least.

*The general is all about preserving the life of krypton but superman was the first born child so surely he wouldn't want to harm him.


*Punching holes in the alien ships shouldn't be as easy as they are carbon materials from the planet Krypton and the sun would or could react in the same way changing the molecular density.

*Superman learns how to fly too fast.

*And oh yeah how to stop an alien invasion sneeze on them then role the credits.

Ok hope that helps like I said I loved the film but instead of praising it saying it the best film ever would be a lie. But it certainly entertained me and say bring on the next one. Thank you for reading :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great game has lots to offer, 4 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Loved this game gave me plenty to do i cant wait until they release the next one or a version for the next gen games console. Plays really well has really tense moments to it and gives a new image to Sam fisher. One thing did bug me and that was how similar the new Sam fisher looks so similar to the default Sheppard from Mass effect. Apart from that this game is really gritty giving you a feel of being an ultimate commando.

Unlike the other games it gives you 3 different ways to play it which are assault, panther and ghost. Assault is just gun ho style, panther is stealth with lethal effects so killing them and ghost is so you cant be detected so leaving no bodies to be found and subduing your enemies.

Sam fisher has many ways to be customized as well as the whole team and departments that they work in. To add to that any money you earn online can go towards the performance of Sam or your online characters.

Now for the online well i loved playing it and am pretty good at this it has many modes to it and a few in which you can customize your different classes. However it does have really annoying gadgets that get used against you. When this game was released it was really fun as nobody had these but in the first week people unlocked them. The most annoying one they had was the stealth suit(spies) really feels out of place and belongs in a game more like metal gear. Another gadget is a scrambler device(mercs) that when activated shuts down your electronics and devices that you use but what i don't get is how it effects your vision. Last is a mini uav(mercs) that has the ability to scan the area a reveal the location of the opposition sounds helpful and would be great if it could shoot but cant, instead it blows up next to people giving the easiest and most unskilled kill in a match. People will use some more than others but if they didn't exist the game would be better online hugely. This being said there is a mode where you can play a classic version where mercs and spies have the devices given to them and cant change them, this mode is only 2v2 but soo much more fun i played this a lot but as time went on people stuck to the other modes as you can only use your custom devices in them.

But with all of the above said i thoroughly enjoyed the game from story mode to online modes. I liked the fact that you had challenges to beat others you knew online for score and time on stages and the fact that you could set them for you mates to beat. If you like metal gear and the other splinter cells its a mix of all games of that genre.

love the tracks definitely worth the buy. Short tracks but the fights in the game are fast paced so goes with the tempo for the game. I love metal and techno slash punk so all of this is a perfect blend.
