Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (2016) movie review
Welcoming back our favourite heroes in a half shell: Michelangelo, Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and the gorgeous Megan Fox to our screens.
Teenage. Mutant. Ninja. Turtles. The name says it all -- there is a specific audience envisaged for this cartoon/comic superheroes series.
TMNT2 (Out of the Shadows) is a live-action/CGI animation feature film. The special effects were pretty amazing. There were some seconds of poor registration, but by and large the cinematography was excellent, and we could accept the characters within their universe.
This film is the classic/cliche story of a group that has to be made into a team, a boss who has to become a leader, and accepting oneself.
So, yes. This is a SFX extravaganza, but leavened with some characterisation and plotting. It is essentially a cartoon and should be approached as such. TMNT2 will not challenge you, but taken for what it is, it can be entertaining, and a film that the whole family can see.
