Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows
comes in with a better storyline than its predecessor and becomes more about enhancing the Turtles’ character development. There is a scene of how villains’ sidekicks got started with Rocksteady and Bebop which creates interest, but the overall film still performs at low levels of entertainment value. The movie relies on special effects and action rather than portrayal, acting, and an innovative storyline which, overall, lowers the entertainment value.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

No. The movie still does not compare to the first two Ninja Turtles’ movies made in the 1990 decade. It would be exceptionally difficult to pull this film into the three-star range.
