    This makes no sense whatsoever. Shredder died in the first movie. Is this his son?

    • Tmnt fan says:

      Secret of the ooze shredder died. This is the remake moron! Re watch TMNT 2014 you’ll see shredder twitching and I’m sure they’ll explain it in the beginning of this one so you’re not whining in the theater.

      • TMNT 2014 was bad says:

        No, you don’t see him twitch. The movie is absolutely awful and it doesn’t explain it at all.

        Rewatch the God awful movie and be corrected.

      Are you sure you’re not speaking of the originals? This is the remakes bro. Makes perfect sense if you watched the remakes. Re watch the remake and repost you embarrassed yourself by living in the past.
