Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the ShadowsThe sequel to 2014’a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles returns Megan Fox and the rage-roid Turtles for a new adventure when scientist Baxter Stockman (Tyler Perry) breaks the Shredder (Brian Tee) out of prison and helps the leader of the Foot Clan assemble the pieces for a dimensional portal to open the way for General Krang (Brad Garrett) and his Technodrome.

Introducing the characters of Casey Jones (Stephen Amell) and mutants Rocksteady (Stephen Farrelly) and Bebop (Gary Anthony Williams), Out of the Shadows plays closer to the themes of the cartoon. While still flawed and ridiculous at times (as in how it gets Fox into a slutty schoolgirl outfit), Out of the Shadows is an improvement thanks to the new characters and better story. Will Arnett returns for comic relief as cameraman turned city hero Vernon Fenwick. Laura Linney also joins the cast as the police chief whose loyalties and motivations swing wildly depending on what is required in each scene to scene.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #55For someone who hasn’t kept up with the series in recent months, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #55 offers a good opportunity to catch up with the Heroes in a Half-Shell and some very big changes in their lives. Victorious over the Shredder, Splinter and his sons have taken back control of New York and control of the Foot Clan. All seems well for most of the Turtles, although Michelangelo has decided life among his former enemies isn’t for him.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - The Fourfold Trap

Divide and conquer is the theme of “The Fourfold Trap” as a fully-brainwashed Karai (Kelly Hu) leads the Shredder‘s (Kevin Michael Richardson) forces to separate and capture each of the Turtles. Placing them each in a specially-designed trap, Karai awaits the inevitable arrival of Splinter (Hoon Lee). The traps are a bit goofy, as well as deadly, furthering the episode’s (and show’s) theme of the Turtles being stronger when they work together which eventually leads to their escape.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - The Creeping Doom

It’s all Mikey‘s (Greg Cipes) fault! Goofing off in Donatello‘s (Rob Paulsen) lab, Michaelangelo not only exposes Donatello to a chemical that slowly makes Donnie dumber but his actions also result in the creation of not one, not two, but three villains for the rest of the Turtles to band together to fight. Accidentally releasing the Creep who in turn uses the remains of Snakeweed to create Son of Snakeweed, the Turtles barely manage to defeat the pair only to see them combine into the monstrous Creepweed.
