Forget cowabunga, this is cowadunga.

June 4, 2016
a torturous mindf--k for any sentient being over the age of infancy.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
June 3, 2016
Feels remarkably like it was conceived and created by (as opposed to merely for) 12-year-old boys.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
June 3, 2016
A loud, unattractive and most likely successful sequel to the 2014 hit.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
June 3, 2016
Goofy where the previous installment was gritty, and graceful where the previous installment was chaotic, this sequel is such a huge step in the right direction that it may be more accurate to think of it as a mulligan.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
June 3, 2016
Being a human in this movie is a fairly thankless task.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
June 3, 2016
This is the kind of movie that leaves you with the impression that more thought was put into catchphrases and fan service than into a compelling plot, thoughtful characterizations or imaginative action choreography.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4

School will soon be out, and so will the children for which this fast-paced CGI exposition is made.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
June 3, 2016
"Out of the Shadows" is by no means a really good pizza, but if you liked the last film, it's worth a slice.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
June 3, 2016
A headache-inducing $135 million sequel to the 2014 blockbuster, TMNT: OOTS becomes intolerable after about 32 seconds.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
June 3, 2016
This one at least seems to know it's stupid and the story, incomprehensible as it is, offers more opportunity for levity, which you sorely need in a movie with a cartoon warthog picking its nose.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
June 2, 2016
This movie is, it happens, easier to sit through than the 2014 film.
June 2, 2016
Despite the title, the wisecracking turtles named for Renaissance painters are never allowed to shine. It's a bummer, dude.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
June 2, 2016
There's a heavy-handed emphasis on the importance of brotherhood and being true to yourself, but mostly, the emotional stuff takes a backseat to all the pizza, pranks, and flaming garbage trucks that shoot manhole covers like projectiles.
Full Review | Original Score: C+

Better title: "When Really Ugly CG Creatures Fight."
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
June 2, 2016
As with the best popcorn flicks, Out of the Shadows offers plenty of mindless entertainment and mind-numbing silliness...
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
June 2, 2016
More cacophonous than cinematic, and loses the quirky charm of the cartoon in the avalanche of computer-generated violence.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
June 2, 2016
Your 11-year-old is going to love this film. Then he'll grow up and wonder what he was thinking.

"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows" is a Saturday morning cartoon on Michael Bay steroids. For the under 12 set, that's fine. For the rest of us? It's something to actively avoid.

Like a well-plated but nutrition-free meal, it registers on the senses while being bad for you.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
June 2, 2016
Out Of The Shadows is every bit as mercenary, nonsensical, and loud as a typical Michael Bay production (the pop soundtrack cues may be even louder, and make even less sense).
Full Review | Original Score: C+
June 2, 2016
Take one part 3-D visual bombast, add a healthy dose of non-stop action and sprinkle in one helluva silly storyline -- plus those fast-talking, even faster-moving hard-shell siblings -- and you have the essence of [TMNT: Out of the Shadows].
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
June 2, 2016
Every bit as noisy, brain-numbing and lowbrow as its predecessor, the Michael Bay production never strays from basic blockbuster formula.
June 2, 2016
To say that this installment of the latter series is superior to its predecessor is damning it with faint praise, but it's likely to reasonably satisfy tykes (and certain nostalgic oldsters-you know who you are).
June 2, 2016
The Turtles' place in today's superhero landscape is an odd one, operating somewhere ibetween Marvel's streamlined efficiency and DC's foreboding inconsistency. Out of the Shadows tries to incorporate elements of both and ends up a soupy mess.
