The turtles return to shell out more damage.
23 October 2009 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

There really is no point in going over everything once again for newcomers who should really watch the harmless and entertaining first movie anyway.

This time around we get a new April O'Neil (Paige Turco, a vast improvement over her predecessor), no Casey Jones, a little bit of mad science, a returning Shredder, some little athletic kid who kicks people to the ground in between delivering pizza and some great enemies for the turtles to try and destroy. Oh, and as the title would suggest, there's a more prominent role for the ooze that helped make the turtles what they would become and that's the main thrust of the plot: that ooze and how it is to be used/abused by those who get their hand on it. Simplicity itself.

This is, let's be frank now, not a great movie. And yet, somehow, it kept me entertained throughout and actually left me with a big grin on my face in places. Perhaps it was the familiarity of the characters, perhaps it was some of the genuinely half-decent action sequences, perhaps it was even just the excuse all these years later of STILL being able to laugh at Vanilla Ice (oh, do watch for that scene as it is priceless).

Nostalgia is all well and good in small doses but, thankfully, this movie was amusing, light and entertaining enough in a standard family movie way to pass the time without too much pain.

See this if you like: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Double Dragon, Tank Girl.
