Movie Summary

Stuart Gillard
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3, is a goofy, feel-good family movie, directed by Stuart Gillard. The film is the second sequel to the original movie. In this film, the four turtle brothers, Leonardo (Mark Caso), Raphael (Matt Hill), Donatello (Jim Raposa) and Michelangelo (David Fraser) have defeated all their nemesis' and have a bit of free time on their hands. With no nemeses to fight, the turtles have no reason to risk exposure above the subway system so they are confined to the sewers. The turtles boredom turns out to be a good thing for their dear friend, April (Paige Turco). A magical accident with an ancient Japanese scepter sends April back in time to 17th century Japan. When the turtles realize what has happened to April they instinctively take off after her. Quickly, the turtles realize rescuing April is not going to be easy. Along the way the turtles make new friends and new foes. The brothers know the magic that transported them back in time only gives them 2 1/2 days to find April and return all five of them or risk being trapped in 17th century Japan forever. This seemingly impossible task becomes more daunting when Michelangelo, along with the scepter is kidnapped by outlaws. Now, it's up to the brothers to develop a plan that requires them to trust new friends, regain the stolen scepter and return all five of them, safely and quickly, to the sewers of New York.moreless

    Chicago Sun-Times

    The whole point of a Turtles movie is superhero power through ninja fighting. And no matter how it is dressed up, or what century it's set in, that's all there is inside the shell....

    Miami Herald Rene Rodriguez

    The movie takes an excessively long time to cover short narrative ground, and the plot is muddled enough to confuse the target audience. [24 Mar 1993, p.E5]

    San Francisco Chronicle Mick LaSalle

    It's a little of this, a little of that, and in the meantime there's not a single joke to crack a smile over. [20 Mar 1993, p.C3]
