OUR RATING: ★★☆☆☆
Story: Fantasy action comedy sequel directed by Dave Green in which the turtles Leonardo, Raphael, Michalengelo, and Donatello (Johnny Knoxville, Alan Ritchson, Noel Fisher, Jeremy Howard) face off against new threats and enemies in the form of: mechanical aliens, a mad scientist named Dr. Baxter Stockman (Tyler Perry), Bebop (Gary Anthony Williams) and Rocksteady (Stephen Farrelly).
At the same time they also once again have to confront their greatest enemy, The Shredder (Brian Tee), and his Foot Clan. The Turtles are equipped with the help of April (Megan Fox), Vern (Will Arnett) and a new vigilante named Casey Jones (Stephen Amell).
Verdict: Although this movie is better than it’s predecesor it’s still a pretty disappointing. Younger children might really enjoy this movie but there’s nothing here for adults to sink your teeth into. The positives is that the movie concentrates more on the turtles themselves and you get some good action sequences. In the end this is just harmless, brainless fun.REVIEWS

Leonardo: I told them, Master Splinter! But Raph, he never listens! I didn’t tell them about the purple ooze because they’d do something like this! And you know what? They might be right!
