When the turtles are shown on a cargo plane returning from Brazil, it is a night scene, but the scenes in New York just before and after the exterior shots of the plane are set in the daytime on the same day, and they arrive back at their lair on that day. The only way it could be light in New York and dark in Brazil is if their plane departed shortly after sunset in Brazil. But by the time they got to New York, the sun would have set there as well, so it should have been night, not day. See more »

I along with many others had a lot of problems with the 2014 TMNT movie produced by Michael Bay. I didn't hate the movie as much as the general public seemed to, but the movie is definitely flawed. Most of my problems had to do with the movie taking itself way too seriously at times and the overabundance of human characters... Which brings us to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows. The sequel takes place a year after the defeat of the Shredder and New York City and the Turtles seem to be at peace. That is until a scientist by the name of Baxter Stockman(played by Tyler Perry) breaks Shredder(now played by Brian Tee) out of prison for a sinister plot to take over the world with the help of Krang, and inter dimensional alien and his Technodrome. Stockman and Shredder also recruit two criminals by the names of Bebop and Rocksteady(played by Gary Anthony Williams and WWE superstar Sheamus) to ensure their plan, and it's up to the turtles along with April O'Neil(Megan Fox) Vern Fenwick(Will Arnett) and their new friend Casey Jones(Stephen Amell) to stop them. I saw the movie and was absolutely dumbfounded at how much I enjoyed it. First off, the performances of all four turtles all have their own distinct personality and are featured WAY more than they were in the first movie. Which makes it way more powerful when the turtles go through emotional turmoil. Most of the other performances are great as well, I loved every villain in this movie, ESPECIALLY Bebop and Rocksteady. Their characters were so fun and energetic and faithful to the original 80s cartoon and they are a joy to watch on screen as well as Krang and Shredder. Another great thing about this movie are the action scenes. There is one scene in particular that takes place on an airplane which was one of the best action scenes I've seen all year, and the final fight is also very entertaining. The humor in this movie is very similar to the cartoons and there are many, MANY references to the other Turtles universes. Although the movie is not perfect. While the movie focuses on the turtles, the scenes involving the main human protagonists are not very good at all, ESPECIALLY Will Arnett's scenes. Another problem that plagues this movie is the amount of sub plots. You have the main plot line, as well as the introductions of Bebop/Rocksteady, Krang and Baxter Stockman AND Casey Jones, Leo facing leadership troubles, all the human crap, the brothers fighting among each other AND the movie isn't subtitled Out of the Shadows for no reason. It feels like at least one of those sub plots could've been completely cut from the movie. I get that the makers of the film wanted to include fan service to make up for the first movie, but that should never come as a price for good film making. In the end, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is a very good film with good performances and great action, but suffers from Batman v Superman syndrome of having too many plots for it's own good. However, if you are a Ninja Turtles fan, you should check this one out, even if it's not the best Turtles film.
