Did You Know?


Rick Collins said that during production, three child extras were scared of him in the Devil make up. When he convinced the first two children that it was only make up and even offered for them to feel it, they did and were no longer scared. However, when the third child tried to feel it, he did the Devil's scream and since then, he has admitted he felt bad about doing it. See more »

Great opening scene, but very disappointing overall
20 March 2003 | by (Muncie, Indiana) – See all my reviews

As somebody who for the first time just got to watch all of the Toxic Avenger films back to back, it is all too obvious that splitting the original 2nd film into two films was a rather big mistake. While this film does have some of the best moments in the Toxic Avenger series, the film feels flat due to the major lack of action in the film overall.

There are several very good moments in the film however worth seeing. The opening videostore heist, containing what has got to be the weirdest (and funniest) cardboard cutout joke I've ever seen in my life, along with a obvious kick in the shins to what would later be known as the "Media Cartel" courtesy of Lloyd Kaufman. Another classic is obviously the end fight between Troma's rendition of the Ultimate Evil and Toxie.

Overall, for fans of Toxie and Troma this is a mandatory viewing. However, I have to agree with Stan Lee's opening narration of Citizen Toxie when parts 2 and 3 were disowned.
