Movie Review of “TMNT: Out of the Shadows” (2016) from the RubberOnion Animation Podcast #136

teenage mutant ninja turtles out of the shadows 2016 movie review with stephen brooks and rob yulfo on episode 136 of the RubberOnion Animation Podcast

MOVIE REVIEW! Back in 2014 we did a full review and side-by-side comparison of TMNT (2014) with TMNT (1990)… now we’re taking on the modern sequel “TMNT: Out of the Shadows” (2016). We discuss the sequel in the original TMNT trilogy, “Secret of the Ooze” and compare it with this modern sequel. Does it hold up? What does Stephen think about how the Turtles were treated? What happened to April O’Neil? Did Bebop & Rocksteady fit the tone? Was Krang really necessary? Listen to find out what we think!
