Movie Review : Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles- Out of the Shadows



Michelangelo, Donatello, Leonardo, and Raphael return to theaters this summer to battle bigger, badder villains, alongside April O’Neil (Megan Fox), Vern Fenwick (Will Arnett), and a newcomer: the hockey-masked vigilante Casey Jones (Stephen Amell). After supervillain Shredder (Brian Tee) escapes custody, he joins forces with mad scientist Baxter Stockman (Tyler Perry) and two dimwitted henchmen, Bebop (Gary Anthony Williams) and Rocksteady (WWE Superstar Stephen “Sheamus” Farrelly), to unleash a diabolical plan .


  • The animation and visual effects were simply amazing . The ninja turtles looked realistic and interacted seamlessly with their environment .
  • WWE wrestler Sheamus had a hilarious performance as Rocksteady along side Gary Anthony Williams who played Bebop . Those two basically “stole the show”.
  • The movie was produced by Micheal Bay , so you already know the action is top notch .


  • The plot of the movie was too simplistic .
  • some of the humor was too childish for my liking
  • Having Tyler Perry in the movie was not a good idea . His character came off too goofy and couldn’t be taken seriously .


Rebecca Vincent: What are you, superheroes?

Raphael: Just four brothers who hate bullies, and love this city!


Rocksteady: Mr Shredder, I’m Finnish… Because when I start a beatdown I always Finnish it!


Krang: You know, I’m looking forward to enslaving you! A cage full of tortoises might be nice!

Raphael: We’re turtles, not tortoises! There’s a big difference!

Leonardo: Yeah, turtles fight!



Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles:Out of the Shadows is a fun action/comedy . The story-line was good , but it didn’t have much steak to it . The hero’s were in no real jeopardy and it felt more like an episode in a TV show than a feature film . With that being said , it it still a very enjoyable movie . Fans of the original cartoon series will be thrilled with the addition of the characters Bebop, Rocksteady and others. Another good point about TMNT is that we got to see more of the individual personalities of the turtles as they had a bit of inner conflict within the group .

If you are a fan of the “Heroes in a half shell”, you will enjoy this movie ! TURTLE POWER !!
