In 2014, the movie world got a taste of Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, and Michelangelo, a band of teenage mutant ninja turtles who fight crime from the shadows of the New York City sewers. Fans of the original comic books, animated series, and movies have loved these raucous reptiles for decades, but how well would they translate to the big screen? After grossing nearly 500 million dollars worldwide, the answer turned out to be really, really well.
Sequel Shoots for Sweet Spot
But how to follow up such a huge hit? How about by including two of the most popular characters from the comics and show? Ninja turtles, meet your new nemeses: Bebop and Rocksteady.
But an anthropomorphic warthog and rhinoceros aren’t even the ninjas brothers’ biggest problem. You’ll have to check out the movie to learn who the real big bad is, but I will tell you this: the CGI used to create this uber-villain is some of the coolest you’ll see all summer.
Out of the Shadows
If the turtles are going to save New York City from these new threats, they’ll have to change their tactics. It’s time for them to ditch the sewers and take on their enemies in the light of day. But will the people of New York accept a couple of mutant turtles as their heroes? Or are they better off staying invisible?
If you liked the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, you should definitely check this one out too. Strap in for a fast-paced action adventure with some of the most unusual superheroes in the movie world today!
Warning: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is rated PG for violence and some strong language, so it may not be for everyone.
I love it! 😀
