Turtle Formation! Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Out of the Shadows is an action packed,humorous and filled with stunts that will blow your mind! With new characters and villains, teamwork, modern tech, and my personal favorite… EXPLOSIONS!
You will get to see your favorite turtles talking up with all their “teenage slang”. Michaelangelo “Mikey” wearing an orange mask who likes pizza and is very goofy, Leonardo “Leo” who wears a blue mask is the fearless leader, in the purple mask, Donatello “Donnie” is the brains of the group, and my personal favorite, Raphael “Raph” sporting a red mask, is the tough guy, who everybody is afraid of. And of course the wise master Splinter, a rat who raised and trained the turtles. This team would not be complete without April O’neil, their brave human allie who helps keep their secret; who now has a new friend, Casey Jones who also helps her with her missions. Prepare to get your laughs out with these witty teenagers!
For those of you who enjoy the villains, you will be happy to see the old classic Shredder with his deadly plan as always, one character that was new to me was Commander Krang, who helped with Shredder’s plan to eliminate the turtles.
This new adventure will take you through the sewers of New York city, while the turtles try to stop Shredder from building the teleportation device and taking over the world. This film is literally bursting with special effects, it is worth while watching it in 3-D. It was hard to sit still because it felt like I was part of the action and there were times that I had to dodge some bullets. Although the movie was long, the non-stop action will keep you entertained.
If you love action movies this film is perfect for you. I would personally rate this movie for audiences 7 and up due to some language use. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, teaches you the value of working together as a team. The turtles are silent heroes of New York, they don’t take credit for all of their good actions because they like to remain in the shadows…
In order to understand the storyline and get to know the characters I would recommend watching the first movie and some of the cartoon episodes because some characters were not on the first film but appear in the cartoons. Join Mikey, Leo, Donnie, and Raph in this mesmerizing adventure.
