After facing Shredder, who has joined forces with mad scientist Baxter Stockman and henchmen Bebop and Rocksteady to take over the world, the Turtles must confront an even greater nemesis: the notorious Krang.
When their new next-door neighbors turn out to be a sorority even more debaucherous than the fraternity previously living there, Mac and Kelly team with their former enemy, Teddy, to bring the girls down.
Mortal hero Bek teams with the god Horus in an alliance against Set, the merciless god of darkness, who has usurped Egypt's throne, plunging the once peaceful and prosperous empire into chaos and conflict.
The Turtles continue to live in the shadows and no one knows they were the ones who took down Shredder. And Vernon is the one everyone thinks is the one who took Shredder down. April O'Neill does some snooping and learns a scientist named, Baxter Stockman is working for Shredder. He plans to break him out while he's being transported. April tells the turtles who try to stop it but can't. Stockman tries to teleport Shredder but he some how ends up in another dimension and meets a warlord named Krang who instructs Shredder to assemble a teleportation device he sent to Earth a long time ago. He gives Shredder some mutagen which he uses to transform two criminals who were also in the transport with him, Rock Steady and Bebop into mutants. And they set out to find the device. April saw the transformation while investigating Stockman, She would take the mutagen and she would be chased by Shredder's minions, the Foot Clan. He is saved by a man named Casey Jones who was the one who ... Written by
Director Dave Green has described this film as "about John, Paul, Ringo and George", whereas the first film "introduced the Beatles". Several bits of dialogue contain titles of the Beatles' songs. See more »
When April and Casey are locked up at the police station, the wall clock says 6:10, then next scene says 5:50, then next seen says 6:10. Maybe it is a mirror effect. Need to confirm. See more »

Mindless, superhero, brain candy, zoom. Bad jokes, great effects, explosions go boom.
My neck muscles are tighter than piano wires and I've sweated enough this week to fill a swimming pool. At the end of a long week of mad work, sometimes you just want to sit down and switch off your brain.
So, thank you, turtles. I like it when you hit stuff.
Is this a dumb movie? The obvious answer is yes, of course it's dumb, it's more superhero schlock: kiddie-fare enjoyed by 30-somethings.
But I don't know. Any fight scene with martial arts is a bit like a magician's sleight of hand. It's too fast to follow completely, but if done well we can see sophistication in the movement, and a fight is a bit of a story in itself. There's the setup, escalation of conflict, then boom, resolution. The best parts of this movie are not of the turtles talking but when things go all smashy-smash-smash. Smash.
Where the film drags is with its human characters, who have way too much screen time. Casey Jones is a 30-something who talks like a 12-year-old ("Someday, I'm going to be a detective!") and Shredder, regrettably, is mostly without his mask and doesn't throw a single pie. Megan Fox is wearing less makeup this time around, but in "acting," less is more. Baxter Stockman is likable, but doesn't turn into a giant fly.
But it's inoffensive, fun to look at, and a nice thing to shut your brain off to while recovering from a long week of sweaty haste.
