Antagony & Ecstasy

Rinky-dink production values, and sheer mindlessness and creative bankruptcy.

Less amateurish than the 1990 original, less embarrassing than the 1991 sequel (with its mind-boggling Vanilla Ice ninja-rap number), this may be the easiest installment in the series for parents to sit through.

Really stupid.

John Ferguson
Radio Times

Writer/director Stuart Gillard tries to inject some life into the project by including some tongue-in-cheek scenes in 17th-century Japan, but it quickly degenerates into half-hearted cartoonish action.

South Florida Sun-Sentinel

These fighting-intensive movies, a glorification of hurtful action, are strictly for children. While the corpse count is low, the mimicking turtles stand for nothing more important than the employment of physical force.

The comic book and animated incarnations of the Turtles remain far funnier and more inventive.

The oversized terrapins are characteristically flip as they backflip through an unnecessarily muddled plot.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series comes to a close with an installment that ultimately falls right in line with its subpar predecessors...

This third film is easily the weakest of the bunch, but I can't say it's terrible.

A decided case of diminishing returns.

If the time-travel gimmick has to be employed twice in a row then it's probably best to banish these characters to a retirement sewer.

The wisecracks have been cut back, and where once the Ninjas' dude-speak was original (influencing, for example, Wayne's World) it's now merely imitative.

Terrible conclusion of the trilogy. The first two were great comic/cartoon adaptations. But back in time? What the hell is that about?

The novelty was refreshingly spry and creative in its first go-around. But guess what--the butt-kicking shellshockers are running out of excuses to exist in their campy chaos

The Turtles themselves are better-natured than ever, and even nicely mellowed.

Achieves a degree of grace, goofiness, and agreeability that can often be lost in the serious drudgery of everyday life.

The first film was bad, the second worse, and the third almost unbearable.

Look at it this way; it could be worse. Your kids could be hooked on Barney.
