Thoughts on... Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze (1991)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze, 1991.

Directed by Michael Pressman.

Starring Kenn Scott, Lauri Faso, Michelan Sisti, Robbie Rist, Leif Tilden, Adam Carl, Mark Caso, Brian Tochi, Ernie Reyes Jr., Paige Turco, François Chau and David McCharen.

Synopsis:

The teenage mutant ninja turtles must face their past and fight against their strongest foes yet.

Released less than a year after Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990), this sequel may boast a bigger budget but unfortunately it would seem that little of that money was spent on developing a decent script. Clearly aiming itself at a slightly younger audience, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze is lacking in darkness and wit - two key ingredients that made the original so enjoyable. The story has been simplified so youngsters can easily follow, and much of the violence is now toned down to the point where the

Thoughts on... Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, 1990.

Directed by Steve Barron.

Starring Josh Pais, Michelan Sisti, Robbie Rist, Leif Tilden, Corey Feldman, David Forman, Brian Tochi, Kevin Clash, Judith Hoag, David McCharen and Elias Koteas.

Synopsis:

Four teenage mutant ninja turtles must face a villainous foe in order to protect their master and save New York City.

Before beginning this review of the film Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, I must first acknowledge my strong sense of nostalgia for the movie. This was one of a select few films I owned on VHS when I was a much younger boy, and would often delight in drawing the curtains on a sunny day to sit in awe of the four heroes in a half shell. Of course, what would follow would be heroic (in my mind at least) ninja kicks leaping from the sofa, and which would inevitably end with me in pain of some form.
