Kinda better than the first film, though by the end it basically levels out as a draw between the two. Too mundane once more.
‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows’ does improve a few things, one being the score – not that it’s great or anything, but it’s more pleasant than Brian Tyler’s attempt. Overall it’s a little more watchable, but what affects this most is the messy ending – especially with the CGI, which looks like a video game.
Cast-wise it’s largely the same, though Johnny Knoxville is dropped – not that I noticed until the credits, mind. Can’t say I’ll remember any of the cast’s performances, just like in the 2014 production.
I guess it’s a positive that this didn’t completely crap the bed, as sequels sometimes do – especially ones that follow poor originals. Still, this isn’t good at all – and, unsurprisingly, killed the would-be franchise early on.
*** This review may contain spoilers ***
I was indifferent to the first TMNT movie. It was okay; it could have been better. It could have also been far worse.
So, there was some apprehension going into TMNT: Out of the Shadows, because, traditionally, sequels were worse than their parent films.
Well, Turtles wasn’t. The second film is actually much better than the first. It still has hard- to-digest action sequences right out of Michael Bay’s wet dreams, but this one also had some heart. It had a theme.
Being a teenager is difficult enough without, one, having to shoulder the burden of saving the city from an evil ninja, and, two, being forced to hide from the very society they are protecting. The TMNT concept practically begs to touch on things like teen angst, and the feeling of being an outcast that almost all teens feel at some point. But, because they’re mutant turtles, this would of course be magnified 10 times.
But the franchise, in its various incarnations, hardly addresses this. But the new Turtle film does. It appeals to the sensibilities of people who recall the awkwardness of being a teenager. This movie actually says something.
There are some flaws, however. Shredder and Krang meet for the first time, Krang proposes an alliance, Shredder accepts. At no point does Shredder flip out while a talking brain rambles on about his plans for world domination. At no point does Shredder question Krang. He is a banished evil warlord. Why would Shredder trust him?
Megan Fox, unfortunately, is still a thing.
Would have been nice to have Casey Jones truer to his original character.
But where the film works is in the script, and, particularly, the scenes with the Turtles, sans their human friends.
And then there’s Rocksteady and Bebop. We 80’s kids have been waiting 26 years to have them on screen, and, when it finally happens, it doesn’t disappoint. There’s an interesting dynamic at play with them: While the Turtles yearn for acceptance and to be human, Rocksteady and Bebop, former humans, are happy to be monsters.
I guess the ooze is always on greener on the other side.
But a pretty good Turtle movie overall, and a lot of fun.
A Franchise Halfway Out of its Shell
2014’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles gave us a new look and feel for the beloved franchise, and it disappointed greatly. Now two years later, a second chance to win over the hearts of die hard Turtle fans has arrived in the form of Out of the Shadows, a sequel while better than the first, still falls short of becoming a special TMNT film.
While the Turtles were far and away the highlight of the first film, their grittier design and lack of proper development was no doubt a downside. Now, I must admit, where in the first film I honestly could not stand the look and feel of the Turtles, I have begun to come around to, not necessarily enjoying, but tolerating their massive Hulk-like looks, and this is because Leo, Raph, Donny and Mikey are all super fun to watch, with more chemistry developed throughout the cast members and a much more classic Ninja Turtle vibe to the Turtles in this film. Eating pizza, cracking jokes, awesome ninja action and just generally acting like teenagers are all major points in the development of these characters, and with Out of the Shadows, there is some more of that old school TMNT feel between the four brothers. Even if there is an alarming lack of literal action scenes involving our favorite mutants, the Turtles are once again the best part of the movie, as they should be.
There are more positives to be excited about, including the additions of villains Bebop and Rocksteady and occasionally, the Turtle’s sidekick Casey Jones. Bebop and Rocksteady are fun villains, humorous, energetic and bring more setting-appropriate antagonists into the fold. I had mixed feelings throughout the film about Stephen Amell’s portrayal of Casey Jones. He was funny, bad ass, and even if it was brief, sported his iconic hockey mask and stick, much to my delight. However, Amell occasionally is too bland and lacks that cocky personality you’d expect from the character, and never develops a meaningful connection to the Turtles, something that the classic 1990 film was able to do extremely well in comparison.
The movie’s plot is much goofier than the first film, which holds many positives, but also brings unwanted ridiculousness. TMNT is supposed to be silly and wacky, a point I complained about in the first movie, and to that aspect, Out of the Shadows does succeed. Anyone expecting an Oscar winning story from TMNT would be kidding themselves, and the more lighthearted story is welcomed to this franchise which often suffers from being far too serious. On the other hand, the dimension- crossing, world ending concept that the film presents is just too much to handle in a movie about turtles that are ninjas, it just doesn’t seem to fit. For once in the duration of this franchise, I would love to watch the Turtles fight some crime on the streets, a simpler tale that doesn’t have to include the end of days.
What I will never be able to wrap my head around is what goes through the mind of Michael Bay whether he’s in the director’s chair or producing, but his presence is once again felt greatly in this film, and that is easily its greatest downfall. The pace of the film feels like it’s on speed, giving no time to care about or really dive into what’s happening on screen, and the major use of Bay’s trademark slow motion and explosions don’t fit whatsoever in this film. Heck, the logo at the end even assembles exactly like the logo for Bay’s Transformers franchise. Director Dave Green is able to make small changes to improve the quirky tone of the film, but Bay is felt right from the start and it doesn’t do the film any good.
The cast is decent for the most part, led by Noel Fisher, Jeremy Howard, Pete Ploszek, and Alan Ritchson as Mikey, Donny, Leo and Raph respectfully, with Fisher stealing pretty much every scene he’s in as Mikey. Bepop and Rocksteady are in good hands with Gary Anthony Williams and Stephen Farrelly and even the overlord Krang is done quite well by 3-time Emmy winner Brad Garrett. Tyler Perry is surprisingly great as mad scientist Baxter Stockman, charming to watch in his science quests and his hilarious evil laugh.
On the other side of the coin, we have some poorly cast actors and poorly written characters. Megan Fox, thankfully, is in less of the film this time around, but when she is, she’s the worst April O’Niel we could have possibly gotten. Her character is horribly developed, and her portrayal is even worse. Will Arnett isn’t much better as Vern, he’s largely unfunny and put in action scenes with Fox that should’ve been used on the Turtles and Casey Jones. It’s terribly unfortunate that TMNT mainstays like the big bad Shredder and the Turtle’s master Splinter are extremely underused as well.
To say that Out of the Shadows was a total flop wouldn’t be fair. Even if by a small margin, Out of the Shadows is an improvement over the first film. There are still some major fixes I wish could be made to help improve this franchise which got off to a very rocky start two years ago and is crawling its way to improvement. I can only hope that the inevitable third installment propels the series upwards into a love I and so many others have for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles name.
One year after their battle with the Shredder, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles still live in the shadows, having allowed Vern Fenwick to take the credit for Shredder’s defeat. When Shredder is being transferred between prisons by corrections officer Casey Jones, his Foot Clan–operating under the direction of scientist Baxter Stockman–attack the convoy transporting him. The Turtles, tipped off to the escape attempt by April O’Neil, fend them off. Stockman is still able to affect Shredder’s escape using a teleportation device, but Shredder is hijacked mid-teleport and winds up in another dimension. There, the alien warlord Krang gives him a mutagenic compound in exchange for his promise to find three components of a machine Krang sent to Earth in ages past, which when united will open a portal to his dimension.
Shredder recruits the two criminals that were being transported alongside him, Bebop and Rocksteady, and has Stockman use Krang’s mutagen on them to transform them into powerful animal mutants. The snooping April witnesses their transformation, and is able to steal the vial of mutagen. Pursued by the Foot, she is unexpectedly saved by Casey. In the scuffle, the vial is lost and taken into police custody. Donatello deduces that the mutagen could be used to turn the Turtles into humans, enabling them to live normal lives above ground, but Leonardo refuses and insists that he keeps it as a secret from the others. However, Michelangelo overhears their conversation and tells Raphael. Rapheal furiously confronts Leonardo for not telling them about the Retro mutagen and being honest with them, which results in Leonardo benching him and Mikey off the mission. Raph then recruits Mikey, April, Casey, and Vern to break into the NYPD police headquarters to recover the mutagen. But the Foot arrive ahead of them and in the ensuing battle, the Turtles’ existence is revealed to the police, who react with fear and hatred. The brothers escape, but April and Casey are arrested.
With Shredder’s forces having already recovered two of the pieces of the portal device, the Turtles track Bebop and Rocksteady where they have recovered the final piece from a jungle in Foz do Iguaçu at Brazil. The Turtles intercept their jet on its return journey via a plane-to-plane skydive, and although the resultant battle crashes the jet, Bebop and Rocksteady are still able to successfully escape with the final component. The Turtles return to New York just in time to watch as Stockman and Shredder complete the portal device and open the gateway to Krang’s dimension, through which his modular war machine, the Technodrome, begins to emerge. Krang immediately betrays Shredder, freezing him and locking him away with his collection of other defeated foes.
The Turtles see no way to combat the threat from the shadows and must decide whether or not to take the mutagen and become humans in order to fight openly. Leonardo finally agrees to do as his brothers wish, but Raphael shatters the vial, realizing that they must accept who and what they are. Vern recovers security footage that proves Stockman and Shredder’s crimes and secures April and Casey’s release, allowing them to facilitate a meeting between the Turtles and police chief Rebecca Vincent. With the acceptance and blessing of the police, the Turtles go into action, confronting Krang aboard the still- assembling Technodrome. Meanwhile, Casey keeps Bebop and Rocksteady busy while April and Vern defeat Shredder’s lieutenant Karai and take control of the portal device. Once the Turtles locate the beacon around which the Technodrome is assembling, they hurl it back through the portal, taking Krang and the rest of the Technodrome with it, and April, Casey, and Vern shut the portal down, ultimately defeating the alien, but not before Krang swears he will return for revenge.
The Turtles are honored by Vincent and the NYPD, but elect to keep their existence a secret from the public at large, deciding that being normal isn’t nearly as fun as being a turtle.
