I remember playing the game of Turtles as a kid and always chose Raph. Very rarely, I chose Leo and was completely unaware of the powers of Mike and Don. With the new movie, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, you can get teleported to that world and explore a bit more of all the four brothers. I would rather say this movie tries hard to land in the kids' zone of entertainment with some funny lines coming from the Turtles. Don't judge the movie's tone by the initial playoff by Megan Fox in a schoolgirl outfit.
Leonardo, Raphael, Michel Angelo, and Donatello are back to save the world and they are not happy with someone hogging the limelight for all their good deeds. So, they want to come out of shadows and break this jinx of an identity crisis. They watch a game of basketball and things go wrong from there; when Shredder - the most dreadful criminal is at large. He teams up with an evil scientist Baxter to wreak havoc on mankind. There's another alien Krang, who's thrown into the mix to bring calamity.
No matter how hard the Turtles try to bring things under control, they go awry with them embarking on one feat after other. They paraglide, break their fears, go through an emotional upheaval, give their buddy speech to work as a team and pull down Shredder and his evil team.
Some uncanny spinoffs like piecing together a weapon and unleashing the power of rhino have been injected into the plot. The rest lies on the mighty arms of Turtles and their fully human friends - the cop who doubles as a hockey champ and the key holder.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows is an enjoyable movie for the fans who love and scream with the characters. The bromance is likeable and the light humor at few places in inexorable. For non-loves of these characters, it's a plain film that moves linearly at a comfortable pace to accommodate all the world-saving cliches.
The writers cooked the broth with so many borrowed ingredients but the meal didn't evolve as something tastier than the previous one. The emotion is weak and so goes the storyline and action. There's heavy dose of intermittent action couple with not so witty one-liners. At times, they are fun and, at times, they seem forced.
