Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II - The Secret of the Ooze Reviews
It's nowhere near as good as the first movie, but there are still glimmers of treasure in this one.
It is a disappointment that the movie has the Turtles using their fists and other objects EXCEPT for their weapons while fighting crime. Because that is what every kid wanted to see...It is also a disappointment that Super Shredder gets easily beaten by himself...no kidding. Surely we all wanted to see Bebop and Rocksteady, but we have some shitty replacement called Tokka and Rahzar...and yes, it's not the same thing, there's a HUGE difference. All this in a silly effort to tone done the violence. I think a movie like this DESERVES such use of violence. The first one did well with all the violence, it would make sense that if they wanted to repeat the success, they would not tone down the violence, but oh man, they did. But even so, the action scenes are still entertaining and fun. Humor gets stupider as it goes and the climax is actually an anti-climax. This is not a good movie, let alone a good sequel, but it's still fun and surely has its nostalgia value to it, and it was because of that that I enjoyed it, but it was beyond stupid.
TMTN II is a guilty pleasure at least, and that's a lot to say when it comes to a movie that doesn't live up to its own title; after all, the secret of the Ooze is never revealed or explained, it's just an excuse for a subtitle. Guess that's why they stopped subtitling the other movies. Overall, an entertaining movie with a huge nostalgic value to it.
