Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze (1991)
USA / English
"Cowabunga, it's the new turtle movie. "The Turtles and the Shredder battle once again, this time for the last cannister of the ooze that created the Turtles, which Shredder wants to create an army of new mutants.
Superb but lacks darkness like the original
The sequel to the smash hit 1990 TMNT, starts off greatly with an
introduction to a new character (Keno) and has a great pizza scene
showing how the city loves New York pizza as well as metaphorically
showing the viewers watching that this indeed is a turtles movie...The
opening music is great and is perfect for the city scene.
The plot is not as well thought out as the original but still does the
turtles a good name for them...I still feel they rushed it a little
seeing that the movie was in production right after the 1st movie went
into theaters...I seem to feel the super shredder was the turning point
in the franchise, meaning that it went from a sort of Tim Burtan feel
with TMNT 1, and ended up with a corny kid focused feeling with the
introduction of the super shredder..and the ninja rap didn't help
either..all though I thought it was cool....I just wished secret of the
ooze was more of a dark TMNT movie....which the 1st movie held on to
The addition of Professor Jorden Perry and the whole TGRI company was a
great idea to explain the chemical spill and the mutation the turtles
went through. His mature nature and serious tone helped the movie
maintain a sense of maturity as well as stability in the plot.
The acting was great in this one as well and the comedy was just as
good as in the first movie. Although Corey Feldman did not voice
Donetello in this one, the replaced voice actor was great...I even
might say that the actor that voiced Don in TMNT 2 is just as good as
Cory Feldman's voice acting in the 1st and 3rd movie.
IN conclusion, TMNT: Secret of the Ooze is a great sequel that is both
funny as well as serious and is a great movie for any age. The only
thing that bothered me was that is was slightly too focused on the
youth audience and didn't stay 100% with the original's dark
