Film Review: ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows’

2 June 2016 12:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The heroes in a half shell return for more halfhearted fun in “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows.” Every bit as noisy, brain-numbing and lowbrow as its predecessor, the Michael Bay production never strays from basic blockbuster formula. It’s fast food entertainment destined for a short run atop the box office charts and an even shorter lifespan in the pop culture zeitgeist.

Although the franchise has remained active in animation and video games through the years, the heroic quartet named after famed Renaissance painters — Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo — went dormant in live action films for two decades, until 2014’s “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” resurrected the phenomenon.

First Trailer For Rush Hour TV Series Dances To An Old Tune

12 January 2016 7:28 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Starring Justin Hires and Jon Foo as Detective James Carter and Chief Inspector Lee, respectively, fans of the dormant movie franchise will recognize many of the scenes included in today’s snippet, and while Hires plays the arrogant, cocksure detective relatively well, we’re apprehensive that the series won’t bring anything new to the table. Of course, that’s just based on one overlong trailer, and there is certainly a budding chemistry ready to blossom between the core duo of Hires and Foo. But can they possibly top that of Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan? And more importantly, will they sing Edwin Starr’s “War” out of tune? We can only hope.
