(2016) (Pete Ploszek, Jeremy Howard) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Sci-Fi/Action: A group of teenage mutant ninja turtles try to stop their archenemy from getting his hands on an interdimensional portal that will allow extraterrestrials to arrive and potentially conquer Earth.
- A year after having defeated the villainous Shredder (BRIAN TEE) who's now locked away in prison, teenage mutant ninja turtles Leonardo (PETE PLOSZEK), Donatello (JEREMY HOWARD), Raphael (ALAN RITCHSON), and Michelangelo (NOEL FISHER) live a life of secrecy under New York City with their rat sensei, Splinter (voice of TONY SHALHOUB). Their heroic actions have publically been attributed to TV cameraman Vernon Fenwick (WILL ARNETT), while TV reporter April O'Neil (MEGAN FOX) serves as their human helper in the light of day.
She's currently tracking brainiac inventor Baxter Stockman (TYLER PERRY) who the group believes is working for Shredder's forces. And that turns out to be true when they end up teleporting Shredder from the prison transport truck -- where he was accompanied by common criminals Rocksteady (STEPHEN FARRELLY) and Bebop (GARY ANTHONY WILLIAMS) -- and into the presence of extraterrestrial Krang (voice of BRAD GARRETT). That alien wants Baxter's invention to help assemble a device that will open an interdimensional portal to Krang's galaxy and allow him to bring an Earth-conquering weapon into Manhattan.
That plan initially isn't apparent to corrections guard Casey Jones (STEPHEN AMELL) who lost Shredder, Rocksteady, and Bebop during the ambush, and his dreams of becoming a detective thus don't look likely under police chief Rebecca Vincent (LAURA LINNEY) who's less than pleased by the escape. When she finally gets sight of the teenage mutant ninja turtles, she isn't sure what to make of them or what sort of threat they might pose. But they do when it comes to Shredder and Krang, and with the help of April, Casey, and Vernon, they set out to stop the villains before it's too late.
