What excited me about this movie was the introduction of so many new characters like Bebop, Rocksteady, Krang, Baxter Stockman and Casey Jones but even better than seeing these characters coming to life was the appearance of the Technodrome and the Turtle Van. It is definitely one for the fans as only they can appreciate how cool this movie is.

The Turtles try to go incognito after they faced Shredder in the last movie and saved the city although staying in the shadows is a lot harder for the brothers as they thought.  After Shredder escapes custody, he joins forces with a mad scientist Baxter Stockman and his henchmen to take over the world. However the Turtles must confront an even greater alien nemesis, but in order to succeed they must first find a way to work as a team under the leadership of Leonardo, as each brother has conflicting goals that could ultimately tear them apart.

Visually amazing and creative the movie captures the same nostalgic excitement in watching the Turtles as a kid. Bebop and Rocksteady were well cast as Gary Anthony Williams and WWE Superstar Stephen “Sheamus” Farrelly brought these characters to life exquisitely by embodying them both literally and figuratively on screen. There is an action sequence which I can only describe as “Tank on a Plane” which was really amazing and funny. Despite its mixed reviews, I still found it a great movie to watch in terms of entertainment as a fun family blockbuster. I watched this DVD a few times over December with family and it still does not get old. Also you can use it to educate the other members of your family who may not already know how fantastic the Turtles are.

  • I liked the movie, it wasn’t as good as the first but it was still great to see the Turtles journey further and grow. To see Rocksteady and Beebop was also very cool! – Leon de Bruin
