The Turtles return in this underwhelming sequel that generally fares about as well as its predecessor...

This is one of those rare sequels that actually lives up quite nicely to the original.

Neither as fun nor as faithful to the spirit of the original comics. It's a bigger, slicker movie, but not a better one.

Clever if rather mechanical.

This lacks the darkness and subtlty that makes th first film so good, and so adult, but its simplified plot and gags will appeal to the under tens.

The murky lighting, uninteresting human characters and violence of the original have been modified in the more amiable sequel, mostly to good effect.

One can have a reasonably amusing time with this predictable sequel, which is a bit longer on action and shorter on wit and character than the original.

The Turtles, when not battling Shredder or providing Vanilla Ice with the basis for a rap number, kid around in enjoyable ways.

This one should have oozed out of the can before it got into any theaters.

The muppets look mighty fake, and Vanilla Ice was better in Cool as Ice, but check out wrestler Kevin Nash as Super Shredder.

Not only insulting to your intelligence, but also harmful for children to watch.

Next time, if the Turtles really want to hurt 'em, they should call on Hammer.

If you're a kid, you're going to see it. If you're a parent you may have no choice.

Didn't seem quite as good as the first -- at least, in terms of reproducing the atmosphere of the original.
