The four turtles travel back in time to the days of the legendary and deadly samurai in ancient Japan, where they train to perfect the art of becoming one. The turtles also assist a small village in an uprising. Written by
At one point in the movie, one of the turtles refer to Walker (Stuart Wilson) as the "Zorro dude". Wilson later starred in The Mask of Zorro (1998) as Zorro's arch-nemesis, Don Rafael Montero. See more »

The first one was a surprisingly entertaining movie, even to this day. It's dark and still humorous just like the turtles comics were. Being a 90s kid I loved the Turtles as did every child in the free world at that time. A great movie with a great ending that could have been the last but because of the success of it they rushed out a sequel.
Now as a kid watching the Sequel Secret of the Ooze I always thought it was the better of the two. more action, more goofiness and more villains. As an adult now it is still a decent sequel but isn't as good as the first. Has some nice fights and SUPER SHREDDER that is just awesome.
Now still as a Kid assuming the 3rd movie would start with Super Shredder breaking out of that dock disaster, I was disappointed. What they gave us is a over the top horribly written, mess of a movie that should have never been made.
Nothing about this movie stands out or even is slightly memorable or even funny. When your a kid and still hate this TURTLES movie you know it must be brutally bad, which unfortunately it is that and worse. I tried re-watching this movie as an adult and by the end I really wanted that wasted time back. The movie is bad; the animatronics are bad the jokes are bad and the ending is one of the worst in film history.
They could have easily brought back Shredder or Maybe Krang or Baxter Stockman. They had an abundance of evil villains they could have used to make this movie more appealing but they chose a crappy character named Walker. This movie is the reason they never made another Turtles movie until 2007 a whole 14 years later. Don't waste your time or money on this travesty of a movie.
