Out of the Shadows – COWABUNGA!
Without spoiling this popcorn flick, and to make a super long story short, I liked this movie a lot more than Transformers 2 and with my nostalgic beer goggles on, I go even further in stating I had more fun watching this, then it’s predecessor sequel – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze (from 1991) !
As some people may say, that this is unfair to compare especially in regards to it’s 1991 predecessor especially due to limitations from back in the day – Not true, I say – with the special effects of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles; Out of the Shadows off the side, I feel that the treatment of this property and it’s script is just better. Is this a perfect film? Of course not, is it a better movie? You bet your last popcorn kernel it is OR at least from this movie- goer perspective it is, if you will.
Overall -I just found this movie just to be summertime popcorn fun. -But- what do I know ? I do know this… I had a better time and watching this High-SpeedSuperJUST TooCoolSpecialEffects movie then BvS, by a long shot that is! (take a notes Snyder.)
And am I looking forward towards the third installment ? Yes … yes I am, which is odd – because I wasn’t a big fan of the first film, like it was “OK” …but just …OKAY, if you know what i mean?
So From Here :>
Would I see it again?
>> Yes in 3D on a matinee or on a cheapie Tuesday .
Did I keep my ticket stub?
>> Yes I did
Would I buy the DVD OR Blu-ray?
>> I dont know…I think that I might. Have to see
Where did I see this movie?
>> I watch this movie at the Landmark Theater in Waterloo, everytime I go there (at least in my case) the customer service seems to get better and better.
Which is something I sincerely appreciate, especially with the cost of admission and popcorn/edible stuff these days.
Overall movie rating out of 5:
