Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III (1993)


Elias Koteas
Paige Turco

Directed by Stuart Gillard

If you want or are in the mood to see a bad movie, here is one I recommend because using the word bad  only to qualify this movie, doesn’t justify how I felt after watching it. Not only is this movie bad i.e. not even worth writing about, it doesn’t leave you with anything to remember when you are done viewing.
The Turtles franchise was facing an end, with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: Secret of the Ooze (1991) not being much of a hot cake like the first movie, then the producers decided to make matters worse by making this movie.

It sucks badly; the dialogue is lame and out of place, the customs of the turtles is the worst of all the three movies and then the voice casting…???
Words are not enough to explain why the voice casting was terrible, it just was. I remember back then the main attraction to this movie was that Casey Jones (Elias Koteas) will be in it; so with Elias in it and Paige Turco back again as April, you will think nothing can go wrong. Boy was I surprised.
Everything that could go wrong with this movie did.

The movie plot has our turtle travel back in time to go save April who was mistakenly sent back in time when she handled a magical scepter she bought at a flea market. Basically that is just it for the plot.

The movie kind of put a full stop for a long time in the Turtle movie ideas, although the cartoon series carried on. Then in 2007 another Turtle movie was made and it continued from the events that happened in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: Secret of the Ooze (1991). That movie too was not a critical or commercial success.

This movie is bad with a capital “B”, I feel so much like purging my brain because I have seen this movie, a purging that I will try to do by watching another movie that I know will be good.
The 2007 turtle movie was named TMNT and it was an animation.

In conclusion, please if you are in the turtle craze and you just feel like catching a movie of your one time favorite heroes again, then see Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles I (1990) or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: Secret of the Ooze (1991) or just watch the TV series, don’t even try or consider seeing this movie, the stain is hard to remove.
