Reyes Jr. actually emits a fairly engaging charisma as a kung fu master / pizza delivery man named Keno.

It's obvious that many of the things that I think are ridiculous in it are going to be found entertaining by kids.

If you ask me, TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES II: THE SECRET OF THE OOZE is an adrenaline pumping comedy that'll have you laughing even harder from start to finish.

But it is enjoyable.

I was gonna make a joke about suffering that was gonna tie into a truncated review of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 The Secret Of The Ooze, but now it seems pointless.

Adrenaline pumping comedy that'll have you laughing even harder from start to finish .

I meet the same confusion with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (WAW.

Henson also works on the turtles once more and even though they have slightly bigger heads and their facial expressions are a bit off, they are still just as stunning and breathtakingly realistic as they were in the first movie.

I enjoy this film it is more entertaining and fats paced and I still love it!!!

Even the dark settings are not AS dark as in the first film,and the supposedly funnier humour sometimes becomes tiresome and does not always hit the mark.

Before they can even fight, however, this SuperShredder brings the pier he dragged the Turtles into on top of himself just as the Turtles escape.

But, a lot of the movie seemed slow pace, and cheesy.

In the second film, there's none of that mushy, gooey, completely enjoyable stuff.

I just got off giving the first "Turtles" movie a 2.5/5 because I revisited it not too long ago and found it unbearably pathetic and boring, while yet at the same time strangely intriguing; it evokes nostalgia of childhood.

The second movie is no where near as good as the first, but is still enjoyable.

It was completely harmless and definitely entertaining for that demographic.

Now, there's the first one which is entertaining.

Despite this film's catering to a younger audience, it's still enjoyable to all ages and I still enjoy watching this movie, even to this day.

As much as I liked the darker tone of the first film, the humor in the second really makes it the more enjoyable picture.

But I still find the first film a tad bit too boring and cheesy.

The script,though patchily assembled,still manages to be engaging throughout and the Jim Henson creature shop creations are as well made,colourful and pleasant to the eye as you'd expect.

It still contains fun action sequences and the same turtles but on the whole, the story feels like an empty shell of the first movie.

Considering that "The Secret of the Ooze" is a sequel, it is a surprisingly entertaining sequel.

Now, in conclusion, I highly recommend this adrenaline pumping sci-fi comedy that'll have you laughing even harder from start to finish from start to anyone who hasn't seen it.

There are plenty of martial arts action in this movie, but there are also some cheesy dialog and a non-suspenseful plot, which made this sequel a little less entertaining than the previous movie.

i know it's aimed at kids but the first one got serious several times, it's music changed from fun to awesome/badass/intense when stuff was about to go down.

Anyone who would regard Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 as pointless is,in essence,unable to see past their own nose.

An enjoyable sequel, that paved way for the similarly cartoon-like but equally entertaining third outing.

Directed by Michael Pressman (Doctor Detroit, Some Kind of Hero, To Gillian on Her 37th Birthday) made an entertaining sequel.

more kid-oriented than the first, but still enjoyable .

I also like how they show the Foot Clan and teen boys from back then entertaining themselves.

So, go see the movie if you can, but don't reschedule your life around it, merely pull it out on a rainy day (or a boring spring break, like my case).

I saw on wikipedia how the 3rd one got mostly negative reviews, including one review of somebody who considered it only entertaining for kids and almost as if that movie was written by kids.

Of the new characters the new film introduces,Ernie Reyes Jr. emits a fairly engaging charisma as kung fu fighting pizza delivery boy Keno and David Warner is impressive as bumbling professor Jordan Perry (or maybe the film holds too much sentimental value for me!

The one thing that could be considered important in that sense just comes across as pointless, and is wrapped up with a single line.

Paige Turco makes for a considerably better looking and more animated April O'Neil, and Ernie Reyes Jr. is entertaining enough as the Turtles new ally, an a**e-kicking pizza delivery boy.

This sequel is entertaining enough to overcome certain silliness and flaws.

Director Pressman must take a fair amount of the blame here, the fights are lacklustre & dull, there's no edge to them & as I write this I can't remember one specific fight during the entire film & I saw it last night.

Despite this though, it delivers an entertaining ride that you should enjoy if you liked the first.
