This sequel to 2014’s live-action reboot sees the band of sewer-dwelling, pizza-loving giant turtles again teaming up with their journalist friend April (Megan Fox) and tangling with evil ninja foe Shredder.

This time, they also have to contend with the supervillain’s mutant henchmen Bebop and Rocksteady, two dumb thugs transformed into a talking, walking warthog and rhino, and with megalomaniac intergalactic warlord Commander Krang, who doesn’t just threaten their beloved New York but the future of the planet as well.

It’s empty-headed nonsense, of course, but the action has a rowdy vigour and the turtles’ boisterous high spirits will please fans.
