    For anybody wondering where Megan Fox has been this entire time, she’s currently severed her relationship ties with Brian Austin Green for good and is currently dating Machine Gun Kelly amongst other things regarding her three children and her career as a model. So her return to the silver screen with the recent action thriller “Rogue” sort of perplexed me....mostly because it’s been four years since the second live action Ninja Turtles movie and outside of maybe two movies, her reputation as an actress isn’t really impressive.....and neither is this movie. There’s redundant, pointless and amateurish dialogue, ham-fisted editing and cinematography, really shallow storytelling, butt-fugly CGI, generic shoot-em-up action sequences comprised of utterly boring choreography that isn’t interesting or compelling, it’s atmosphere hardly calls for any suspense or tension to any given scene, required or otherwise and if I had one word to describe the acting, it’s piss poor. It tries to be non-stop action whenever it can be, but the annoying shootouts and shaky camera makes the entire experience come off as a chaotic mishmash of noise. Even the film’s message about preventing poaching or the killing of endangered species comes out of left field and comes off entirely as a second fiddle because a generic Call of Duty mirror fighting African-Islamic terrorists was better than coming up with any kind of a compelling story revolving around that real-world issue.

    They do attempt to give the characters some amount of background info and depth because you have to try at that in these movies and only ONE of the given characters portrayed by Sisanda Henna actually feels more two-dimensional enough to be given the best arc as possible while also giving out the films best performance by a pathetically low margin. Outside of that and that ALONE, the entire film’s got next to no redeeming qualities.
