4.0 out of 5 stars Give and Take June 7, 2004
The first Turtles movie was great in the fact that it took on the tone of the comics rather than the TV show (more grim, more adult). The second, after much backlash from parents, went in the total opposite direction and turned it into camp. This installment is a nice ballance of the two.
Granted, the costumes are not up to par with the first two, and the plot is not the most original (nor feasible), but they take a back seat to the jokes. The first two TMNT movies focused more on plot and action with an occassional joke to keep things light. Writer/director Stuart Gillard's time travel story, while not the strongest, opens the door to many jokes and gags, which is what makes this movie stand out among the others. It's a nice change of pace, in my opinion.
Kudos to Elias Koteas in this film (he deserves to be the first in the credits). His 15th century counterpart isn't the best, but he makes up for it when Casey Jones is forced to "babysit" four ancient Japanese warriors in modern-day New York (favorite bit is still the hockey scene).
For those who were more interested in plot, this is not the best place to start in the series, but if you enjoy a good line of jokes and gags, I'd definitely recommend this one!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great, but a bad end to an excellent trillogy. April 1, 2001
By Omid
Format:VHS Tape
Aww, the Turtles are done for it, their final movie. I feel this movie could have been better in many ways. The voice of Spliter should have been the same voice from the 1st and 2nd movie. The Turtle's costumes should have been the same as the 2nd movie. The enemies were too unbelievable. And the ending of the movie was just a little too weak for me. It's a good movie for a fan, but I only suggest buying it if you are a diehard Ninja Turtles fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Everyone hush up and just enjoy August 1, 2002
By Steph
Personally I myself am a film buff, and this movie cinimatically has its faults, but at its heart it goes back to the roots of the TV show which i watched as a child, The first 2 movies were dark, They had better writing and puppetry but were so grim. this disconnected it from the younger generation of turtle lovers.
it is not the best in the series but it is my favorite, it has more fantasy and charm than the first 2

5.0 out of 5 stars Very authentic September 23, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
The movie's period costumes and weapons of the gaigin were very authentic. The accents of the Japanese were also authentic. The battle scenes in the village were very reminiscent of Akira Kurosawa's materpiece "Seven Samurai." The misprounciations of the turtle in Japanese was hilarious, but then again I guess it would be considered an "inside joke." The caricature of hockey players was also very funny. It is a very, very good movie and very underappreciated by the public as well as perhaps those "in the know."

3.0 out of 5 stars Depends on what you want... August 12, 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Whether or not this movie should be considered better or worse than the first two depends greatly on what you want to get out of it. The facts are as follows: 1) it deviates severely from the "traditional" plot line (ie. Turtles vs. Shredder). 2) The turtles' characters are (comparatively) more mature and have thus ceased to act like 15 year-olds. 3) The fight scenes are very enjoyable, much more so than in the first movie, because they are well lit and you can really appreciate the artistry of the choreography. Personally, I enjoyed seeing how the characters had matured and developed. Each turtle's personality is much more distinct in this movie. They are individuals now rather than a group of adjective-yelling adolescents. Basically, this movie is different from the first two, so if you aren't willing to try something new, don't see it. But if you liked the turtles for themselves and not just their image, give it a try.

4.0 out of 5 stars The turtles meet Shogun June 14, 2011
When their reporter friend April O'Neill (Paige Turco) is whisked off to parts unknown by a peculiar Japanese artifact she found at a flea market--and a 17th-Century Japanese warrior, Kenshin (Henry Hayashi), appears in her place--Michealangelo, Donatello, Leonardo, and Rafael naturally gear up to find her and get her back. The artifact turns out to be a magic scepter which replaces people from the past with others of equivalent mass (hence Kenshin's advent) and carries the Turtles back to Japan in the year 1603, where they discover that an ambitious daimyo, Lord Norinaga (Sab Shimono), who happens to be Kenshin's father, is attempting to crush a rebellion led by Mitsu (Vivian Wu), who happens to be Kenshin's beloved. A British gunrunner (Stuart Wilson) eager to sell Norinaga his cargo of rifles and cannon makes things more complicated, since of course it's to his interest to make sure the war isn't settled. And the Turtles have only 60 hours to accomplish their mission and return to their own time or they'll be "toast." It's fun to see the quartet in action in the land that invented their discipline, trying to adjust to a time long before their own (two of them even entertain thoughts of staying), and as always the quips fly thick and fast and the combat scenes are a fast-paced delight. Elias Koteas returns as Casey Jones, though no explanation is offered for his absence in the last movie, and there's more than a hint that the Turtles will have a second adventure in the past too.

4.0 out of 5 stars A misunderstood movie March 1, 2011
By Matt32
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
First, don't be mislead by all the bad mouthing. This is not the worst movie of all time. I thought this was a solid Ninja Turtle movie; I loved it when I was younger and still today I find it entertaining. Like it or not, this is the way the great live action trilogy came to an end. After this we had to wait years for TMNT, and that wait was not worth it. I don't know why it is so hard for some to appreciate this movie (I am still appauled by the amount of people who disliked Secret of the Ooze!!!)

Is the writing weaker than the previous movies? Yes. Is this a strong finish for the trilogy? No. However, I think all of the Turtle quality is there. One complaint I see is that the Turtle's mouths don't line up with the words well. In my opinion, no more so than in Turtles 1 and 2. I never even noticed the slip ups until they were pointed out and I started looking for them.

Someone said the story was far-fetched; the idea of time travel was too sci fi. REALLY?! A series based around 4 turtles mutated into humanoid form living in a sewer eating pizza, trained as ninjas by a mutated rat that come out and fight crime at night whose main enemy is a ninja who calls himself Shredder?! Yeah thats A LOT more realistic than time travel. The main antagonist was killed of in the last movie, I give them credit for thinking up this plot. Turtles 3 had a good storyline although not executed to its full potential.

Main characters such as Splinter and Casey did not have much face time. I would have loved to see Casey accompany the turtles, but he did not. This is cleary a weak point in the movie, but nothing I couldn't live with.
