In2016, Ninjas are high-tech, genetically engineered pizza loving turtles with no real martial arts skills – just brawn, wit, high tech gadgets and a hot actress in the form of Megan Fox. Of course, its a movie produced by Michael Bay and full of special effects. 

Enter Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows. The four turtles start off having fun watching an NBA game and generally enjoying life in the sewers. At the same time a bad guy is doing a prisoner escape and then – yawn? – a dramatic prison break happens.

Out of the shadows means they come out to the real world. So let us introduce them:

Who are the Ninjas?

Raphael – Raph is the most aggressive Ninja of all the Ninja Turtles, he loves a punch on the face – his punch.

Michelangelo – Mickey is the youngest and most fun loving Ninja Turtle. Very curious and inquisitive, he is also naive and open eyed. A true Ninja in the making?


Donatello – Donatello is the brains behind the Ninja Turtles. Likes to brag, is a show off geek with an iPhone strapped to his hand, running all the gadgets he has strapped on himself. A modern ninja.


Leonardo – Wears a blue bandana. He is the leader – smart, doesn’t talk a lot, disciplined. The heart of the Ninja Turtles.



Then there are the Rhino and the Warthog! Check out these funny guys in the trailer.
