I thoroughly enjoyed watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows!
In this sequel the turtles do their best to try and stop Shredder from successfully opening up a portal that will allow the insidious Krang to come through along with the Techno Drone. Yes, the Techno Drone; imagine a scaled back version of the Death Star.
Anyway, Krang may look like a helpless blob of a brain but he’s actually a real bad dude whose only motivation in life is to conquer various worlds throughout various dimensions. He’s definitely one of the toughest foes the turtles will ever face!
Oh and in addition to Krang and Shredder… the turtles also have to faceoff against the notorious Bebop and Rocksteady! They both have a few screws missing but they’re some pretty strong mofos.
Of course, the turtles do get some much needed help from Casey Jones and April O’Neil but for the most part… it’s turtle power that gets the job done.
I’ve been a long time fan of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles since the premiere of the original animated series way back in the mid 1980s. So, I’m pretty familiar with the bulk of the original storyline. Though, I know that these recent reboots are intended to reintroduce the turtles to a younger generation, I couldn’t help but feel very nostalgic while watching.
The CGI effects are magnificently executed and make the turtles seem almost demigod-like. One cool scene I particularly liked involves them skydiving from one plane to another in order to confront and ultimately do battle with Bebop and Rocksteady.
I won’t giveaway the ending but it’s pretty easy to assume that the turtles emerge victorious.
On a scale of 1 tamale to 10 tamales I give Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows 8 pizza filled tamales! 😎
(P.S. I really don’t like Megan Fox as April O’Neil but I guess at this point she’s got her contract secured.)
