TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: OUT OF THE SHADOWS – Rated PG-13 – MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS

Starring Megan Fox, Will Arnett, Pete Ploszek, Jeremy Howard, Alan Ritchson and Noel Fisher.

As we follow our favorite Crush soda drinking, shelled superheroes into their sequel to 2014’s TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES ~ we find that Shredder (Brian Tee) has been working away while “on the inside”, having joined forces with Mad Scientist Baxter Stockman (Tyler Perry), as they are planning another way to destroy our world…

Still living the dream in the sewers under New York City ~ it seems that Leonardo (Pete Ploszek), Donatello (Jeremy Howard), Raphael (Alan Ritchson) and Michelangelo (Noel Fisher) may have to venture back to the surface yet again to save their favorite city, and their favorite girl April (Megan Fox) too.

When Shredder manages to escape to start his diabolical new plan, it is up the our FAVORITE GREEN GUYS, their bud Vernon (Will Arnett), and new man on the team, policeman Casey Jones (Stephen Amell) to bring Shedder to justice, while showing the people and police force of their fine city, that they really are THE GOOD GUYS, no matter how menacing they all appear…

I give TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: OUT OF THE SHADOWS a rating of WAIT AND CATCH THIS ONE ON DVD: Even though the kiddos who were at the advanced screening with me did cheer on our favorite GREEN SUPERHEROES throughout the film, and even though I did enjoy the storyline this time around, as it was very reminiscent of the Turtles I remember viewing with my eldest daughter and hubby back in the 90’s, I just didn’t feel this film’s production quality ~ even in IMAX 3D – warrants me telling you it deserves a BIG SCREEN VIEWING. It was good, but it wasn’t great, so I’m telling you that unless you LOVE these green dudes, and their super cool attitudes ALOT, you might want to wait and catch this film on DVD when it finally comes out…
