This past summer brought us Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, for everyone who didn’t learn their lesson from the awful first movie in the rebooted comic book franchise that is now in the hands of producer Michael Bay and whatever director is looking for a paycheck. And now Honest Trailers is taking it to task.
While the sequel brought all of the characters into the mix that they were hoping to see, there’s still no accounting for an awful screenplay that makes no goddamn sense and the same old rehashed plot that we’ve seen at least half a dozen times this decade already. Watch the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 Honest Trailer after the jump to see the movie get skewered.
While some fans might appreciate the sequel embracing the cartoonish nature of the content that inspired it, there’s a way to do that while also having a script that isn’t absolute garbage. One of the most laughable aspects of this sequel to me when I watched it in theaters, and it’s something that’s pointed out in the Honest Trailer, involves Krang meeting Shredder. Despite the turtles’ greatest nemesis being broken out of a prison transfer by way of a portal that takes him to a giant talking brain in another dimension, he has absolutely no questions to ask whatsoever. That’s just lazy.
Anyway, that’s just one of the many problems in a movie that completely betrays what the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles should be. While this undoubtedly has entertainment value for kids and adults can only get so frustrated by the franchise before sounding ridiculous, there just has to be a better way to bring these characters to life without ruining them. Actually, there was, and it’s called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles from 1990. Just go watch that.Cool Posts From Around the Web:
