I found this while scanning articles about Martha Graham for work. I strongly disagree that the sequel was better than the first film. The first film was dark, gritty, violent, and more resembled the original comic book, with the characters being like their 80's cartoon selves. The critics who said that this movie was better because it was "more upbeat, more light-hearted, and funnier than the first!" have no idea what they are talking about, as the original movie was not meant to be "light-hearted." And that concludes my rant on critics with misguided raves about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: The Secret of the Ooze.
