What an unusual task it is to split a movie into two sequels. Recently this was done in adapting the final 'Harry Potter' book to film. But what if when you make a film, there's too much footage for just one? When Troma made 'The Toxic Avenger part II,' they ended up with around 4 hours of footage. To solve this dilemma, they decided to use some of it as a start for part III. Both were released the same year, but the end result was quite mixed. While II upped the ante in outrageousness, III mostly unfortunately lacks what makes it's predecessors such fun.
Pros: Cast gives it their all. Exciting score. Quite good special effects. Some really amusing bits and dialogue. Still enough goods for camp lovers. Strong opening and closing.
Cons: Virtually plot less. Pace drags a lot of the time. Too talky. Hasn't aged well. Could have used another trip to the editing room. Story is perhaps too straight forward this time.
Final thoughts: After the zany fun of part II, this is quite a letdown. Even Lloyd Kaufman was disappointed in how it turned out. Still recommended for those who enjoyed the first two, but don't go in with high expectations. Experimental filmmaking can be a wonderful thing, but in this case it didn't really work out. Too bad.
My rating: 2/5
