I don’t know anyone who thought the movie turtles were true to source, but their versions of Bebop (Gary Anthony Williams) and Rocksteady (Stephen “Sheamus” Farrelly) are a ninja cut above Rahzar and Tokka. And Laura Linney in a role as somebody serious? Are we actually looking at the Turtles as something worth dealing with decently?
Lord, I hope so. But you decide. “Out of the Shadows” is the sequel name, and it ain’t quite “skipping stones” – but it’ll do.
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
