Casey Jones: The Movie

Casey Jones: The Movie

From Splash Page:

The original 1990 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie and Elias Koteas notwithstanding, Casey Jones: The Movie by Polaris Banks is probably the most spot-on film treatment of the hockey-masked avenger you will ever find. With superior acting, cinematography, and direction, it is more than just another fan film — but rather something more akin to TMNT as done by Martin Scorsese.

Banks describes his rationale for putting so much time and effort into Casey Jones: The Movie as follows: he “felt obligated to make the movie simply because he knew that nobody else would.” In addition to wearing many hats on the production, including director, writer, and editor, he also plays ninja turtle Donatello — yep, that’s right, the turtles themselves are also in the film, as well as April O’Neil in her yellow jumpsuit. The look of Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo, and Raphael are closer to the original movies than the later ones, but are surprisingly good — and complete with animatronics to bring their facial expressions to life.
