While the TMNT movie reboot was a financial success, it was hoped a sequel could address some of its flaws, which it did & didn't.
People complained about Megan Fox as April, so there's less of her this time, allowing the Turtles to be the main characters in their own movie, but Fox seems less enthusiastic in her portrayal as April, perhaps due to the previous criticism.
After rewriting the last movie, during filming to make Shredder Japanese, over objections to William Fincher, the actual Shredder is now the main villain & recast, as he’d have to do more than look intimidating. This is both a pro & a con, as they bear no visible resemblance & the films still hindered by that previous rewrite.
Tonally it's not quite as all over the place. Though with a conscious effort to be less violent, it seems it would have been better avoiding the modern trend of getting a 12 certification & just going for a PG, as there's little here to warrant the higher rating.
There's a lot more fan service this time with Krang, Baxter Stockman & Casey Jones been added & more Turtle Van.
Best of all is the scene stealing Bebop & Rocksteady. "My Man" aside, these two are just having fun when they're around & they nail the characters, even when both human.
It’s a drastic leap for any franchise, however elaborate it is, to introduce aliens into their setting, when previously not present. So if you compare Krang’s 1st appearance in episode 2 of the kids cartoon, to his 1st appearance in the 2nd movie, the cartoon did it better. But it’s still fun to see Krang in live action & even using his robot body to actually fight.
The trailer of the movie & title suggested an Avengers style battle for New York, but instead of ripping off that excellent sequence, they rip of the final battle from the previous movie.
Some say it's the better of the 2 films, some say it's worst. It often feels that just as it starts giving you something good, whether a fight scene or Splinter listening to Lionel Ritchie, it has to stop that moment.

Reasons To Love Bakugou Katsuki (BakuDeku)
It was Bakugou's birthday, but the class didn't have time to prepare anything for Bakugou. They were too busy helping the pro heroes that they all went to their own room after Iida and Yaoyorozu finished ensuring they were complete by the time they got back to UA. Bakugou didn't mind this because he was too tired to lift a finger as well, and it's way past his usual bedtime.
After taking a shower and getting changed, Bakugou was ready to hit the bed, but a knock stops him. He groans and pulls on the door as hard as he could, whispering loudly, "what?!"
Midoriya stands in front of him with his eyes locked on the floor, "Uh, I know it's late, but I wanted to ask you for help,"
Bakugou takes a deep breath, "Yeah, right, it's already late, and my body is so fucking painful I just want to go to sleep, can't that fucking wait till tomorrow?"
Midoriya shakes his head, "I need to do the presentation tomorrow morning. That's why I need your help, Kacchan,"
Bakugou groans and runs his hand through his ran before nodding, "fine, wait for five minutes and I'll be down,"
"Thank you, Kacchan!" Midoriya beams and runs down the stairs while Bakugou dries and fixes his hair before hanging his towel on the drying rack.
Bakugou walks down the stairs and sees that the lights we closed. He walks into the common room and sees a presentation slide projected on the wall.
Bakugou furrows his brows as he walks to the couch in the middle of the common room. He was so focused on the presentation on the wall that he didn't notice everyone hiding in the shadows until a loud, "Happy birthday!" echoes in the common room, followed by the sound of party poppers.
Bakugou felt someone place a party hat on his head before two arms wrapped themselves around his shoulder.
"Happy birthday, Bakugou! Kaminari and Kirishima greet him before they sit him on the couch.
That's when Bakugou noticed everyone else sitting on the floor while Midoriya stood in front of them, "tell me if you like it, Kacchan,"
Bakugou doesn't say a word. He just raises a brow and crosses his arms as he leans on the couch, waiting for what Midoriya had prepared. But confusion filled the room once Midoriya was done.
There was silence after the presentation. Everyone was confused, but no one dared to ask what the presentation meant.
"What the fuck was that? All you showed us were photos of me, dumbass. Who gives a presentation like that?" Bakugou asks with his eyebrows raised.
Midoriya takes a deep breath, "I know it seems pointless to present this to you without actually putting any reason, but you'll just counter everything I put. If I presented reason 1: you're handsome, you'll just tell me 'hell yeah I am, but there are other people who are handsome too' or if I put reason 2: you're amazing. You'll just tell me, 'fuck I am, and you'd be blind not to see that,"
Bakugou opens his mouth to say something, but Midoriya speaks first, "see, you're ready to say something back,"
Bakugou shuts his mouth, but he always had trouble keeping it that way, so he says, "then what the fuck was the presentation for?"
"It's to show you that I don't need a reason to love you, Kacchan. I can make an endless list of why I love you, but all those are pointless because other people have those traits too. What makes it special is it's because it's you," Midoriya says, and frustrated runs his hand over his face with frustration, "I don't know if I'm making sense here, but if I wrote that you're kind, it's not a special reason, anyone can be kind. But if it's you who's being kind, it's suddenly special,"
The rest of the class tilts their head to the side in confusion as they try to understand Midoriya's words. But Bakugou understood.
He understands that Midoriya doesn't need a reason to love him because the only reason is that he's Bakugou Katsuki. That's it.
Bakugou stands up to wrap his arms around his little nerd and presses a kiss on his temple as he whispers, "stupid,"
Midoriya chuckles and hugs Bakugou back, whispering, "happy birthday, Kacchan. I'm sorry, this is the best I could do,"
"It's more than enough," Bakugou whispers, and they remain hugging like that until teases start, and they part for them to eat the small cake the class had kept for Bakugou's birthday.
I couldn't put all eleven photos, so I had to remove one;-; anyway, I hope this made sense and Happy Birthday to our explosive blond.
I also have this posted on Twitter.

I've never read a hanahaki fic with carnivorous plants before so it had to happen I guess
In which Kirishima says "hey ow maybe I should've cared about that whole breathing thing" and Bakugou panics but gets cranky/pleased that he gets a carnivorous plant instead of a normal flower (once he finally understands what's going on). The boys are a mess. Kiri doesn't know how to take care of himself, Bakugou can't comprehend that his little ray of sunshine wants him. Good times.
...yes, the title is a pun
