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.
PLOT:
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.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
