Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows Review (MINOR SPOILERS)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is out and it is time to give you our thoughts on the movie. There will be minor spoilers here, but we will try to keep them to a minimum.


Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is the sequel to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles from 2014. This movie is all about giving the fans of the 90's TV show something that they have been waiting for now for over a couple of decades. We saw characters that we did not think that we would see on the screen like Beebop, Rocksteady and Krang. All of those characters looked surprisingly good on the big screen,

Other characters included were the returning April O'Neill played by Megan Fox, Vernon Fenwick played by Will Arnett, Brian Tee playing Shredder, Tyler Perry playing Baxter Stockman and Stephen Amell playing Casey Jones.

The movie is not necessarily for most adults. We think that this is mainly a kid's movie with nothing but one of the jokes about certain mutants' junk aimed at adults. The movie also makes no sense, but in reality we kind of knew that it was not going to the moment that we checked out the trailer. There was some good action but surprisingly none of it came from Shredder. That we think was a missed opportunity.

As much as we love Stephen Amell, he was a miss as Casey Jones and it felt as if he was not into wearing tat hockey mask. The same can be said about the part that April O'Neill plays in this movie. The truth is that this franchise is suffering fro the same problem that plagued X-Men Apocalypse. They cast a star in this case Megan Fox, and wrote the movie around her.

So those are the negatives for us, now the positives are that this movie is entertaining and it focuses a little more on the turtles and Beebop and Rocksteady. Those two characters for the most part were a highlight of the movie. It was also pretty cool to see the Technodrone almost complete on earth, and although Krang had a very small role, he reminded us of the arcade game which is a huge plus.

If you go see this movie, you should not be expecting something like Civil War. It is a fun, senseless movie, but how much sense can you expect from a movie that has 4 mutant ninja turtles as the main characters. If you go in not expecting a great movie with a great plot then chances are that you will be entertained. I would say that people who are not familiar with the 90's show or those without kids are not likely to have a great time. So we are giving Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows 2.5 out of a possible 5 stars, but that's only because of nostalgia.
