I recall Megan Fox jumping off the Transformers series because Michael Bay was being too sexist in his producer chair, yet here they are again! Though it's not as much as it was in Transformers, they're certainly putting Megan in that spotlight once more, and I hope it wont end the same way. As for the Turtles? They go through the same squabbles as last time: that of leadership, and teamwork, and trust, and now it has to do with their (but not all of their) wants to he human.
The enemy? It's Shredder again! But now it's with someone else working behind the scenes, as well as the charming Bebop and Rocksteady, played by Gary Anthony Williams and Stephen Farrelly.
Among the good guys we have hockey grunt Casey Jones played by Stephen Amell, who's able to sustain unrealistic amounts of damage considering he doesn't seem to be a mutant himself, just a human... or is he? Really? Getting thrown into a car like that and barely wincing?
Apart from Megan (who's a bit drawn back as usual) the character performances are pitch perfect, and the evil Dr. Baxter gets a good laugh too, though the schemes on betrayal and saving the world feel a bit all too rundown and familiar. The special effects feel rushed too - not as grand or detailed as they could have been, or could it be that I'm just getting used to over-the-top action CGI like this?
It's a grand ride though! Thrilling and entertaining, even with all the same old plot ingredients mixed in. Good watch. But, not as good as the last one.
I like the title btw. Revealing, but still not so much!
rated 3/5: not bad
