Did You Know?


Though the first movie had exceeded all expectations, Golden Harvest wasted no time green-lighting a sequel because thought the franchise was going to burn out quickly and were surprised it had lasted as long as it did. They wanted to get this movie out in theaters as soon as possible, which is why the film came out less than a year after the first movie's release. See more »


Tutso asks Shredder, "We rebuild the foot?" Shredder specifically says, "No." (because the only one thing that is next is revenge.) Later, Keno tells the Turtles that he's heard of the foot, because the word is out on the street that they are looking for anybody with martial arts talent, especially teenagers. That means they are recruiting people to join the foot, thus meaning that they are rebuilding the foot clan, even after the shredder said that there was no need to do so. See more »


Keno: Hey which of you lovely ladies gets to ride with me tonight?
Girl: Dream on, Dweeb.
Keno: Okay, and when I do I'll dream of someone a little thinner.

I love this sequel and my second favorite in the trilogy!
31 October 2015 | by See all my reviews

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze (1991) it is a worthy follow up top the original classic action film Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990). This sequel is way improvement over third film and both of reboot films. It is my second favorite film in the trilogy and it is almost good as the first movie! I love them both to death and it is an excellent sequel.! It is my childhood film and I grew up with it. The first one was dark and awesome kick ass film, my favorite childhood film of all time, this sequel is good on the same level as the first is, just the first one is the best and far way better than all the films about Ninja Turtles were made!

After the big success over the violence in , Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles the movie makers "dumbed" down Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze, making the turtles more funny, less weapons and less fights. The TMNT star in the greatest movie of the 1990's, maybe even HISTORY! Our "Heroes in a Half Shell" must battle the Foot, and that dastardly devil Shredder to save New York. This movie shows that on rare occasions a sequel can be as good or better than the original! The Turtles look awesome and Keno definitely adds to the excitement of the movie! You have to give props to any pizza delivery guy that knows martial arts and can kick it with the Turtles.

We learn more of the origins of the turtles as well as meet a few new characters who help the turtles out. Raph's voice/actor replaced unfortunately, his personality lost. He angers for no real reason. This is Donnie's movie, he gets to be a geek, which worked. His original voice talent also replaced due to Cory Feldman's issues back then. The story would have been a lot more enjoyable without the horrible "Ninja Rap" and Vanilla Ice, that sequence ruined the movie for this viewer. Tokka & Rahzar are adorable. It got a little too much like the cartoon with "super Shredder" and the more laughs than drama that the first movie had. Jim Henson's Creature Shop designs where outstanding which the animatronics did work for the film as well as its predecessor. I love Jim Henson's Creature Shop!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze is still my favorite childhood memories film that I have always enjoyed and I always will. There isn't any drama in it, which I like it, there is a lot of comedy in it a lot funny moments, less sadness in it. Raphael, Leonardo, Michelangelo and Donatello are awesome!!!

One problem I have I wish that, they had Casey Jones instead in it and the music soundtrack could have been better. I wish there would be Corey Feldman's voice in the movie from the first movie.

I enjoy this film it is more entertaining and fats paced and I still love it!!! I love The sequel to the original movie. I love the fight scenes with the foot clan, and with thieves in the beginning of the film! GREAT opening sequence when the TMNT fly over Keno and kick butt in the toy store. Awesome storyline to connect their origin..... to the Ooze and TGRI. A new April ( although Mrs Turco did an alright job) I still wish there would be Judith Hoag in it, she was a lot of better than Paige Turco was. Those are the main problems with the film I have.

The Turtles and the Shredder battle once again, this time for the last cannister of the ooze that created the Turtles, which Shredder wants to create an army of new mutants.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze is a 1991 American live-action film based on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles characters published by Mirage Studios. It is the sequel to the 1990 film, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

The rating I am giving is a 9, it is not that good like the first one was but it is still good and it is my childhood movie.
