"TMNT: The Next Mutation" was a concept for fourth live-action movie should this third movie prove a success. In this concept the Ooze that transformed the Turtles and Splinter was still in their bodies causing a much more drastic 2nd mutation. Michelangelo's mutation would have gave him a more human appearance allowing him to walk amongst the people of the City. Donatello's mutation would have gave him to have psychic abilities, but have him wear an optic device because his mutation would cause his vision to deteriorate. Raphael's rage would cause him to mutate into a fearsome creature with claws and spikes jutting from his body. Leonardo would have the ability to mutate his skin into different textures. And Splinter would transform into a creature twice his size that he would have limited control over. However, the third movie was not as successful as hoped and the fourth movie was nixed. Concept art for the never made 4th movie can be found as unlockable bonus content in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Smash-Up (2009). The concept of having the Turtles mutate into creatures was later used in the 'New Mutation' saga of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1987) cartoon. Later the "Next Mutation" name was used in Saban's live-action series, Saban's Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation (1997). Matt Hill, who voices Raphael, is the only actor from the films to reprise his role in the "Next Mutation" series. See more »

Originally when I saw this movie, it had only just come out in theaters and I was just a kid. At the time, I thought the movie was a steaming pile of crap, no where near in comparison tot he first two. Hell, I overlooked the inclusion of Vanilla Ice for YEARS, insisting that even if he was in the second movie, it was still better than the third. However, now that I am older and a touch wiser, I've gone back and watched all three movies (I've been on a serious TMNT-a-Thon ever since I heard a new movie was in the making). While I admit the third is indeed the worst of the three, it is far from the travesty I originally thought (and thought for years). Aside from the silly story and the poor quality turtle costumes, the dialog is given several moments to shine with some surprisingly funny jokes and one-liners and minor giggles. I'm not saying every TMNT fan should go out and buy this. I don't even own it myself. However, I think you should get a few friends together, grab some snacks, some source of caffeine, order a pizza, and rent TMNT III for a night of absurdity and laughs. That's what my friends and I did <3
