I liked BB Ra's. The vigilante-ninja master angle was more interesting than the eco terrorist of the comics and cartoon.
He was somewhat like his comic counterpart in that he still saw humanity was so corrupt that only extreme force and extermination was the answer. Having said that I think his comic/cartoon counterpart's motives were clearer; he wanted to save the planet rather than being a humanity's check and balance for corruption
