film reviews | movies | features | BRWC TMNT: Out Of The Shadows - The BRWC Review

The second helping in the latest movie iteration of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles; TMNT: Out of the Shadows sees our unlikely heroes take on a fight of inter-dimensional proportions as they’re forced to unite with the city of New York and reveal themselves for the first time.

TMNT has everything a fan of the turtles could want. April O’Neil, Casey Jones, Rocksteady and Beebop as well as the indomitable Shredder;there’s lots of pizza and even the odd Kawabunga for good measure. Unfortunately, the film itself isn’t worthy of its contents. TMNT: Out of the Shadows is possibly one of the worst films I’ve ever seen. Having actually enjoyed the first (unlike many) I was more than willing to give this film a chance, I even hoped the consensus was horribly wrong, having seen so so many bad reviews before going in. They weren’t wrong.

TMNT: Out of the Shadows
goes so far into the childish category, delving so far into the world of slapstick that TMNT feels more like a set of sketches designed to make children laugh rather than build any sort of atmosphere. There is so much cutting and changing that everything happens within a five minute window. Clearly designed for an audience with the attention span of a gnat, there is no time to build up suspense or to build any kind of 3D characters. The ‘twists are so regimented and formulaic that for the first time in years I considered leaving the cinema many many times.

There are no acting performances worth discussing in this film, but I feel I need to defend the actors in someway. It’s clear throughout that thee script,the direction, but more than likely the force of the studios and audience polls has pushed this film so far down into the toilet, not even DiCaprio could make this film look good.

I love TMNT, and I wanted to love this. Unfortunately, the only good bit about the film are the closing credits.
