The new addition to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise is better than the first part in 2014 and get ready to witness some engineering and scientific facts that make absolutely no sense, but fun to hear the words being thrown around and inventions being put together.
The movie is entertaining and stunning, now the action scenes and the CGI wasn’t always perfect, but the one-liners and the comedy will be well received.

The whole mindless fun and forgettable experience introduces four more characters from the franchise, we have Casey Jones (played by Stephen Amell, who plays Oliver Queen in the Arrow series), Baxter Stockman (Tyler Perry) and the bumbling duo Bebop and Rocksteady.

The movie also focuses on the turtles learning to accept themselves for who they are and learn to work together regardless of their differences.

This is the second movie in the proposed trilogy by Michael Bay, and I fear by the reactions and the box office feedback this may be the last movie in the series. The main problem this movie faces is the fact that the TMNT will be loved by old timers and new comers who are not familiar with the heroes in a half shell will find it hard to enjoy this film, so for someone like me I’m more driven by nostalgia.

The plot in the movie follows up from the last adventure of our heroes, Shredder is being moved to a secure facility to face penalty for the murders he committed. In his transport bus is the duo Bebop and Rocksteady and while the Foot Clan with the aid of Baxter Stockman broke Shredder out of the transport, Bebop and Rocksteady broke out too.

Casey Jones was one of the officers in charge of the transit and he was hell bent in catching the escapees.

While tracking down Bebop and Rocksteady he runs into April (Megan Fox) who was being chased by the Foot Clan, during his heroic rescue he meets up with the latecomers to the save April party our four turtles.

After a brief unrealistic freak-out, he joins forces with them to take down Shredder who appears to be working with another creature named Krang from another dimension. Krang wants Shredder to assist him open an interdimensional crack in space for him to transport his technodrome through.

Our heroes save the world adventure led them to find a way to be human and having to decide if that is what they wanted. They also had some face time with the NYPD, who too were freaked out by their presence.

You will enjoy this film if you did the first and are a fan of the heroes in a half shell.
