Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows

Two years ago, Michael Bay brought us a live action reboot of a popular cartoon show, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and despite its grotesque appearance, that cannot stop the turtles by showing off their buttkicking moves and their corny jokes some called it funny. Now, the turtles are back for another hilarious thrill ride that will still blow our shells away for more.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles:
Out of the Shadows

Called Out of the Shadows, this second installment promises more action than the previous film with wild results you can expect from Leo, Mikey, Ralph, and Donnie, and the others. In addition to returning baddies such as The Shredder, Out of the Shadows features the movie appearance of mutant villains as seen from the TV series such as Rocksteady and Bebop. This is going to be one heck of a showdown that deserves to be called a thriller with a hint of sarcasm our favorite shell-shocked heroes can expect.

Just like the first film, appearances can be somewhat as discorded as the Transformers movies that Bay directed because their looks really hurt our childhood memories but if you didn't bother about their appearances, this sequel has everything you can expect on an action flick; stunts, martial arts, alien invasion, and some corny jokes the turtles can come up with. Sure, we got tickled by the turtles' comic dialogue and for this sequel, we never know what kind of jokes or puns our heroes come up for this time but jokes aside, it's so darn hilarious to watch.

Although it's as messy as the last one, TMNT2 balances the thrills of the action movie with the humor of a comedy flick, resulting to one heck of a superhero flick you can watch for the summer movie season. Although too bland to call it a superhero flick, it's not half bad to watch this flick even if you're not a fan of the series.

My rating: 3.4 out of 5.
