    This is another very good entry. I really like the fact that Slash is teaming up with a partner of his own, hey Raphel has his number two so why can't he. And of course that person is the Neuturalizer which is cool, he's a villain in the show I like but was only there for one episode hopefully after this one he'll have a bit more; he's sort of like the Predator alien with all the sophisticated weapons, primal nature, and intelegence.



    Casey I really felt bad for, because we see Raphel just ranting for no good reason on the failure of the missions because of Casey. I like Raph but this is one of those times I really don't like him, personally I don't feel it was Casey's fault at all, like in the first scene he was having a hard time running on the rooftops which makes sense (on a sidenote same with April) because he trained himself for ground assault, let alone running on rooftops really isn't easy as it looks. Also on missions, crap happens they don't always go 100% according to plan, that's fact that's science. And there was one moment when Raph I felt was really out of line when he complained about another missioned failed because he had to watch Casey's back, I thought What the Frak are you talking about, if your complete concern was for the mission Casey would already be dead and watching another's back is what partners are suppose to do that's the point of them. It' s obvious that the reason Raph is moaning and growning like a premadona is because of his pride which is supposedly wounded. The thing about battles are they don't know or care about pride, rank, or reputation it's just whether you win or die on the battlefield that matters. So Raph's pride doesn't amount to jack squat and he's about to learn that the hard way.



    I liked seeing the back and forth between both the Neutralizer and Slash, you can see why both of them have kicked it off together they have one thing in common they want to stop the Krang for good. However we begin to see there is a big difference between them but also shows that despite the dark and primal nature of Slash he does know his limitation, he has a set of rules for himself, for one thing he doesn't kill innocent people. The Neutrizer we see might be borderline insane as he is overly determined and ruthless enough to destroying the Krang he doesn't care who gets in the way, he stated he's willing to destroy most of New York and it's populace to do it; this just goes to show why both Slash and the Neutralizer are a bad combo.



    The action is soild as usual, but the one battle that stands out was seeing Slash, the Turtles, and Casey all fight against the new vehicle of the Krang which is obviously an homage to the Imperial Walker from "Empire Strikes Back" and the Tripods from "The War of the Worlds". It was cool seeing everyone of them have a hand in fighting the thing, from Casey coming in the nick of time saving the Raph and the Turtles from the vehicle by slap shooting a bunch of explosive pucks at the thing. Even liked seeing Slash and the Turtles working together, I like seeing them work as friends then being enimies. There was even a couple of "Empire Strikes Back" references when we see Mikey use the same move to take down the Imperial Walkers which is tieing down the legs but unfortunately this time it doesn't work and probably because Mikey doesn't have a Snowspeader and strong enough cable. However it's Casey that really takes it down by shooting an explosive puck into an exposed opening, much like Luke chucking a grenade into the Walker's underside: and of course the vehicle explodes and Casey you can say has scored a goal.



    In the end Raphael learns his leason and shows a little more respect to Casey, likewise even for Slash. Slash also learn his lesson on knowing who his partners really are, he of course in the end doesn't go with the Turtles because he has to continue doing things his way. Just seeing that end makes me wonder if Slash will have another partner or even become an ally to the Turtles once more, which would be cool. The only thing I do know is that Slash, Casey, Raph, and the Turtles have all got each others backs.moreless
