A film that asks: why was I made?
26 February 2017 | by Mopkin TheHopkinSee all my reviews

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, is a sequel to 2014's reboot of the franchise. The first film in the series was generally poorly received, but did have some "so bad its fun" credentials. The 2016 sequel seems to have given this up completely, and offered a disappointing viewing experience to this viewer.

The film follows the Turtles as they battle Shredder, recently busted out of prison, as he tries to open a portal to another world to bring the armies of Krang to Earth to take over. Shredder enlists scientist Baxter Stockman to create monstrous minions to battle the turtles. Unfortunately, they choose Bebop and Rocksteady, two of the worst criminals in the history of crime.

The turtles face their usual issues of team dynamics, as Leonardo and Raphael compete for leadership, Mike is a goof and can't do anything right, and Donatello tries to guilt trip everyone. Master Splinter is distant and seemingly useless, Megan Fox is a damsel to save, and Casey Jones joins the crew as an annoying police officer. Basically, both sides seem inept in this film.

The story is bland itself as well. The armies of Krang are coming, and Shredder needs to find three Mcguffins to put together and open the portal. Krang gives Shredder purple ooze that can be used to mutate humans into humanoid-animals that we all have in our genes(?), but Donatello thinks this can be used for a more noble purpose. This purpose splits the turtles team, and causes all sorts of drama that the Turtles prioritize over doing any crime-fighting. Also, their are stuck up FBI agents, fart jokes, weak characters and plots, and an overall silly tone and atmosphere.

The film was not a complete waste however. Some of the sci-fi elements were interesting, if a bit campy, and their are some laughs to be had at the poor quality of film on offer here. It does have some legitimately ridiculous moments, and offers some basic laughs.

Even so, the positives are outweighed heavily by the negatives. TMNT: Out of Shadows is a sequel nobody really looked forward too, and its poor quality acting, direction, writing, script and visuals are too much for the funny/bad moments and fun science fiction camp to make up for. This can be skipped safely for most casual watchers.
