I'm a big, big, BIG fan of the cartoon series and was distraught at the fact that M.Night would even consider creating a movie from this wonderful and successful series and turn it into a controversial issue. The casting was one thing, but I though he would AT LEAST just stick to an approproate storyline that does not confuse those who have not watched this series before. Everything in the movie was terribly made, even the acting. Each character was so badly portrayed that it was obvious they didn't even do their research or TRY. The littlest things irritated me such as the "Oong" pronounciation of his name. No effort at all was put in the movie.
For those who have not seen the cartoon, don't bother wasting 2 hours of your life, and for those who are a fan of the series, don't even bother looking at the poster. Period.
