Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III Reviews

August 6, 2014
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.

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

A decided case of diminishing returns.

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.

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

If the first sequel was a photocopy of the original, this second sequel is a tracing of a photocopy. It's the same business twice removed, and twice diminished.
January 1, 2000
The first film was bad, the second worse, and the third almost unbearable.
