Trivia

Daniel Pesina stated in an interview on the UpUpDownDown (2015) Youtube series that the ninja turtle costumes had very small eye slits for the actors to see out of that were also a good 3 inches away from their faces instead of being flush. So as a result, most all fight scenes show foot clan actors standing around waiting to be hit because the turtle actors couldn't see what they were doing. Pesina went on to explain that if you watch close enough, the Ninja Turtles would first throw out random punches and kicks and then a Foot Soldier would bend and jump in front of them so they could be hit. This explains why many of the foot soldier actors couldn't throw back any punches or kicks of their own as the turtle actors didn't have the ability to react. In a way, this helped tone down the criticisms of the first movie being too violent as there was little to no back-and-forth fighting and the Ninja Turtles would quickly defeat their enemies with one strike.

Goofs

Before the final fight with Tokka and Rahzar, when Donatello and Professor Perry deduce that they need CO2 in order to destabilize the mutation, they find a fire extinguisher. When they grab it, you can see from the pressure gauge that it is in fact not a CO2 extinguisher. This would make sense because CO2 extinguishers are primarily used for closed in areas or electrical equipment. See more »

Alternate Versions

The depiction of chainsticks on screen was rarely allowed in the UK back in the early 90's, so the movie was heavily cut or reframed to remove every last trace of them. However it has since be shown uncut on UK TV and was passed uncut by the BBFC for it's 2002 DVD release. See more »

When I saw the first debut of the turtle's movie I did not want to miss a second. And I did'nt. When the 2nd one came out I loved every second as the 1st, and to this day I still have the collection, and the credit I want to give to is the puppeteers and the suit performers they were awesome bringing those characters to life. Great Job. My full respect for these movies is still strong. Some say I'm too old to watch it still. I don't think so! TMNT Rocks. Let's keep it that Way!
