The video introducing Vern at the basketball game includes a progression of newspaper and magazine headlines to summarize the events of the previous film, but the visible dates on some of the publications bounce back and forth totally out of order between July 2014 and December 2013. Also, the video begins by saying the events happened "a year ago" but the game is being played on October 31st, which is significantly more than a year after the latest publication dates of July 2014.

Over the top silly
25 June 2017 | by See all my reviews

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is the supposedly sequel to the original hit released in 2014. Featuring a runtime of 114 minutes, the movie wears out its welcome before the last is hurled. This film felt more so of spin off to the Transformers films than the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turles. Being more over the top, silly, loud and annoying dialogue said by the turtles, this film feels more goofy than it should have been. The original film was greenlit a sequel not because it was great but because it was a surprise hit (near $500 million worldwide).

The problems with this film is the plot isn't too original and very basic, with the action nothing special or anything we haven't seen before. Somehow they made the ninja turtles more annoying and repetitive compared to the first film. Also with the lead villains turned to animals. Megan Fox reprises her role and is solid, as well as Will Arnett and Stephen Amell. As with the original film, Out of the Shadows is also quite predictable with a good clean ending. Perhaps this film was a mistake as it flopped compared to the original.
