review of Teenage Ninja Mutant Turtles Out of the Shadows

Well, they did it. While the first movie/attempt by Michael Bay to translate the reimagining of The Teenage Ninja Turtles felt a bit boring, the unthinkable happened and I think they managed to make the sequel better than the first film!

Megan Fox reprises her role of April O’Neil, Will Arnett as Vernon, while we get a few new faces to the franchise in Laura Linney as Police Chief Vincent and Arrow‘s Stephen Amell as Casey Jones.

TNMT toys and movies.

Brian Tee plays Shredder and Brad Garrett voices Krang and Tyler Perry gets his claws into a role of an ever-hopeful, sort of evil scientist.

The film is directed by Dave Green whose credits include Earth to Echo (2014) and …. um, and… before that he made a few short films, was in the Camera and Electrical department of another film, while has “Miscellaneous Crew” credits from Spider-Man 2 and 3.

Now personally, I love the physical representation of the Turtles with they physically dominate the area with their huge presence. To some degree, I still enjoy their crazy antics topped by crazy fun fighting skills. And to some degree, they almost get the feel of the cartoons that ran for so long on TV, but I remember having pretty fond memories of that first movie.
