Happy birthday, you unfunny slow drag of a movie. Seriously, this has to be the most boring movie out of all six. The only nice I can say about it is that it's better than OotS, since some parts of 3 were at least a little entertaining. Which says very little, given how much of a moldy dogturd OotS is.

I half want to say "Already?" and half want to say "Is that all?"

Well, happy 25th to it. Too bad it couldn't have been done better. Esp those costumes... but at least they provided that suitable pic to use; not sure other movie versions could top that.

I've always loved the illustrated poster art. It's a shame the first two movies didn't get a similar treatment.

I personally like this film much more than 2007 and 2014, even think it has some pros over Secret of the Ooze, only majorly let down by the costumes and some of the characters like Walker.

I love AVGNs review of the film as well and some of the lines will always forever make me a smile ("help, I'm a turtle and I can't get up!" and "Sleezball" are my favourites)

Despite the costume, the story and setting is pretty good.

This is the only movie I haven't yet seen, I been told I'm not missing much and that seems to be the general consensus so I haven't raced to find it yet

I don't hate this movie, but I can't say I liked it much either. It's way better than the dreadful bay movies

I think we can all agree that this movie has been surpassed by the two PD films for the most dumpster fire of the series. So Happy Birthday you!

I first watched it in a cinema back in August 1993.

Eh. I wholeheartedly disagree with that one and that could be because I think Secret of the Ooze has more history with me. While SOTO is a lot more watered down than the original movie, I still feel like I'm watching the same TMNT universe established in the first film. Sure, the lighting is brighter and everything feels more slick (unlike the grime and dirt that I adored so much from 1990) but by the time you get to TMNT 3 ... the new suits and the overall vibe of the film is just so off it's hilarious. I don't think the story or the setting of the film is that great either. Secret of the Ooze is a silly movie, but why I feel TMNT 3 is like Batman & Robin is that it's a movie to watch while drinking with friends and laughing at how cheap it looks.

... Exactly. Even with my lukewarm opinion about TMNT 3, I still find would rather put that one on compared to 2007's TMNT or those terrible, terrible Bay films.

Also - TMNT 3 has easily the worst soundtrack of the trilogy! Even as a kid, I remember thinking how much my cassette soundtrack was a disappointment.

Though this movie intensified my love of ...

Wasn't it set in 1603, and the comic adaption set in 1593? Or maybe it was the other way?

The redeeming aspect of this movie is that the Turtles actually fight with their weapons, which really surprised me the first time I saw it after Secret of the Ooze. Also, Casey Jones babysitting the samurais dancing to Tarzan Boy.

I always liked the ice hockey scenes.

2007 really? I mean the plot was barebones and the focus was all over the place but I at least applaud the movie for trying to shy away from FW elements in favor of something a little more darker (sort of). I'd say it's mediocre at best.
