O course there is good stuff in it. It is probably my favorite of the three (or at least a close second to the original- it really depends on my mood) due to several factors. One, the cinematography was GORGEOUS. The Japanese scenery right from the opening onward, was simply so beautiful, I fell in love instantly. All the characters were well-developed, and I really didn't mind the corny jokes, because- well, it IS TMNT (and they had more of the FW influence by then). I loved the fight scenes, and the costuming (not the turtles suits, but the rest of it) was really well done. I never found the plot or villains generic- they were different from what fans expected, sure, but time-travel is NEVER really "generic", IMHO. Also, the little hints at influencing their own future (Raph with Yoshi, Whit possibly being an ancestor of Casey, etc.) were neat. Overall, I think this one gets too much flack, and most of it is undeserved. Yes the turtle suits (mostly the heads, as someone pointed out) were not as good, but since they were mostly covered by the samurai armor I hardly ever noticed. The parts in New York were a lot of fun, too. Casey in the bar with those guards was hilarious, as was their introduction to hockey and TV.

Always my favorite part of the whole thing... Turtles in the old samurai outfits/armor. Kinda cute (and it hides those lackluster Turtle costumes).

No kidding, the painted poster illustration is amazing.

Eastman and Laird's heart was in the right place for TMNT 3, but they just didn't have the right creative crew backing them up. The idea was to not make the same mistake and rush another sequel. It was supposed to be more in the tone of the first movie with the time travel stuff.

Another tip of the hat to Tarzan Boy. Fantastic old jam.

Despite the inferior looking turtles, it's better than Secret of the Ooze in every single way.

Lol, yeah. Rist is awesome. "So... what's your sign?" was also perfectly delivered.

And I loved Raph calling Donnie out on his horrible Japanese.

All the turtle banter in it is hilarious. If only there were a little less time spent on the human cast (though they too are pretty amusing!).

The jokes in the second movie are better.

No doubt. TMNT III's joke fall flat almost all the time. For the most part, it's just a bunch of pulp culture references, like "Hey, let's have them do the 'stewing' gag from Wayne's World or mention the Addams Family."

I see a lot of praise for this movie but I'm wondering if most of the praise is coming from those born after 1984. The only three things that are good in this movie are the illustrations, the fact that they use their weapons and maybe that Tarzan Boy song which I oddly like. Costumes are ridiculous and the story is nothing of value. I have only seen it three or four times since it's release (as I have seen all three movies in theaters) and it's still unwatchable to me.

The original movie will always be a classic and is a "watch anytime" kind of flick. The second one is watchable mostly due to nostalgia for those of us that grew up around this time. Other than that, I really don't watch any other TMNT movies. However, I always wanted to see a small series of animated movies done right similar to the DC ones made.

I like this movie, there were some good moments in it

Mikey saving the kid from the fire and Leo giving him CPR.
Mikey bonding with Mitsu and also when Mikey had to held back and told to calm down when Whit kidnapped Mitsu.
Raph bonding with little Yoshi.
Raph also had to be held back and told to calm down when Walker had April.

i enjoyed it. personally a little editing and a change on the cheesy sound effects would've made it better. i love mikey in this film along with the final fight scene.

In my opinion, the action figure tie-ins to this movie were great. I enjoyed the intricate designs of the samurai outfits and the removable face plates.

I've said it before and I'll say it again...

Had TMNT III had Henson Suits, it'd be remembered more fondly.

This.

I think it could've been a much better film with only a few adjustments, not just an enjoyable bad film:

1. The enemies could've been the ancestors of Oroku Saki and the turtles ally themselves with Hamato Yoshi's ancestors to fight them.
2. Jim Henson suits
3. Tone and atmosphere of the 1st film (fight scenes, soundtrack, dialogue etc.)

I guess people will always see the 3rd as the worst, even if it can be argued that it was better than SOTO in some areas. SOTO had shredder, the Jim Henson suits and a more memorable set-up so it will always be seen more fondly than tmnt 3.

This is exactly how I feel. I recently rewatched this and I couldnt help but think the same thing.

I have no idea why they included an Addams Family reference. It's like James Rolfe once said, you're not expecting The Addams Family, The Addams Family is the furthest thing from you mind when watching a TMNT movie.

Well they say humour is subjective so maybe other than Raph thought The Addams Family reference was hilarious.

In my opinion, the third movie is by far the worst of the original movie series, but it's still not nearly as bad as a lot of people make it out to be. Like most people have said, their costumes are awful, which definitely brings it down for me. It's kind of hilarious how much worse they are compared to the first and second movies.

One of the biggest positives for me is having Casey Jones back. Even though he doesn't do much in the movie, it's still pretty sweet that he's there. I also love having Corey Feldman back as the voice of Donatello. I don't know how most people feel about him, considering that it's not really a traditional nerdy Donatello voice, but that was the voice that really stuck to me as Donatello when I was a kid.

There are a lot of nice bonding moments, like people have mentioned as well. So, it's not one of my favorites, but I think that it's worth watching.
