I like how Ben Affleck cares about attention to detail and actual story.

I was never a huge fan of TMNT so I could never grasp the horribleness of the situation...until I found out just recently that Michael Bay is planning to direct a movie based on one of my beloved video game franchises, Ghost Recon. Now I understand that the Ghost Recon franchise isn't as huge, but like those who grew up watching TMNT, I have grown up playing each Ghost Recon release.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Never watched the cartoons, but the movies are divine.
Micheal Bay is making them space turtles, Having a twilight fag play Donatello, a kid from hunger games as Raphael.
And Megan fox as April.
Ever see that south park episode where Steve Spielberg and George Lucas rape Indiana Jones? Pretty much that's how it it going to be.

Drilling is a complicated process, while being exploded into space isn't that mentally taxing for the people onboard except the pilot and whatnot, one or two guys teaching some guys how to put on a space suit wouldn't take as long as teaching someone how to drill.

But really though **** Ben Affleck.

That's why Ben Affleck is a award winning director and Michael Bay is on the same level of Roland Emmerich and M. Night Shyamalan

He should of won best director but he did win best movie so it says something.

They didn't have time to train astronauts how to operate the drill as there was a giant meteor coming for earth? they got Bruce Willis as he was the most experienced with the drill which was being used, he chose the team he wanted to take and they let him and he was their only hope and wouldn't go if they didn't let him. They just taught the drill team basic astronaut skills as it was easier.

It's not easier to teach a bunch of people how to precisely fly a billion dollar vehicle. On top of that, it takes time to train an astronaut for what they'll experience.

Just a quick point, they didn't do any flying, all the actual astronaut part was done by 4 fully trained astronauts (2 per ship). The closest they got was moving fuel lines on the international space station, or maybe driving the space car.

(I like this film too much)

Well, my opinion of that movie was remarkably low, so I can't judge the acting all that well. I mean, Morgan Freeman can salvage almost any movie, but Sum of All Fears was barely passable for me.

True, but to me it did so in the maximally stupid way possible. IT was just riddled with so many cliches throughout that it was hard to watch without snorting cocaine with incredulous laughter. It wasn't tongue in cheek either, it was a serious movie that is very hard to take seriously.

There were plenty of other glaring idiocies in the plot as well. The original novel was all right because it didn't overdo the drama and kind of kept some things low-key if they required a stretch of the imagination. The movie just went all out pompous drama apocalyptic. That only works if everything is airtight in the plot. If it's not, you get a snoozefest or a Uwe Boll film.

well a quick runthrough

* assuming the pilot at the start would carry a picture in his control panel....real pilots actaully remove all distractions from the cockpit, including ducttaping over lights they dont use
* assuming just because russia and usa are the biggest countries in the world, theyd automatically be the first to go to war
* assuming that russia and america would actually go to war when in real life theyre in bed together playing the world
* assuming that a boy wonder agent can solve a political situation older more experienced agents cant
* assuming ukrainians cant understand other languages
* assuming that when boy wonder went into the pentagon and refused to get off the computer, that the general and MP's there didnt just kick his ass and drag him away
* assuming when boy wonders helicopter fell 200 feet out of the air, he got out of it unhurt
and the list goes on
