Really Well Done Casey Jones Fan Film

If you're like me you loved TMNT as a kid and Casey Jones was a big part of that. A friend of mine brought this film to my intention and I must say it's pretty well done. So yeah, check it out and drop a little donation if you feel like it, you get a DVD for donations of $20 or more. Enjoy!

The man!

I just watched it last night, It was pretty amazing. The only negative is that some of the creature effects were a little bit out of their league, and that really came to light when they got close up on the faces. I think they realized this though, because they had the sense to keep the turtles (mostly) in shadow.

Otherwise, it was an extremely well written, well acted, well shot, and well choreographed movie filled with a great deal of fan service but never bogged down by it. Hopefully the people working on the new TMNT movie see this. The actor playing Casey is 100% perfect for the role.

Well said, especially about the lead actor playing Jones

damn, you beat me to it. this was perfect in every sense. blending elements from all over the franchise. hell they even got Robbie Rist to voice Michaelangelo. cousin Oliver strikes agian. frankly I thing the creature effects were damn good given the  small budget ($20,000), particularly since I wasn't expecting them to even try it let alone include a whole bodied turtle and Krang. as for Hilarion Banks (Casey Jones) from what director Polaris Banks and Hilarion's brother said on the revenge of the Nerd web cast his resemblance to the character was a driving force in creating it. I bought the song too.
