Trivia

Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird didn't want to see Bebop and Rocksteady, or Krang, or any of the other goofy characters from the cartoon show in this and any subsequent movie. However, the studio wanted Bebop and Rocksteady to appear, but since both co-creators were still not in favor of it, Tokka and Rahzar were created. See more »

Goofs

In the club, as Michaelangelo and Donatello are fiddling with the musical instruments, we see Donatello turn the amplifier to full and say, "Full volume" in Michaelangelo's voice. See more »

Quotes

This sequel is entertaining enough to overcome certain silliness and flaws.
6 September 2005 | by See all my reviews

The fearsome foursome turtles go after the glowing cannister that mutated them as babies. While the turtles are trying to find the meaning of their lives and the ooze is slipped into the hands of the evil Shredder (Francois Chau). Shredder asks the help of an unwillingly scientist (David Warner) to make his mutant allies, Rahzar and Tokka. The Turles seeks help with the young pizza deliver boy-Keno (Ernie Reyes, Jr.). The Heroes dive into action and of course, Pizza!

Directed by Michael Pressman (Doctor Detroit, Some Kind of Hero, To Gillian on Her 37th Birthday) made an entertaining sequel. This is a bigger budgeted film than the first movie. As usual, the highlight is the animatronic characters by Jim Henson's creature shop. The plot of the sequel is extremely silly but never boring. Paige Turco replaced Judith Hoag from the original and Turco is appealing in the film. Too Bad, Elias Koteas didn't return for the sequel and Corey Feldman didn't return to voice Donatello also. The film was a hit like the original. The only flaw in the sequel is the ending, which it is a mess. Rapper:Vanilla Ice appears in a embarrassing cameo. This sequel is amusing for the kids and fun for the fans of the comic book series. (*** ½/*****).
