Storyline

Picking up immediately after where 'Toxic Avenger Part 2' left off, after getting Apocolypse Inc. out of town, Toxie has nothing to do. He tries to get a job, but fails as a normal job is no place for a creature of superhuman size and strength. Until on day, Toxie is told that his blind girlfriend Claire, has a chance to see again, but it costs a lot of money. Then Toxie gets the opportunity to work as a spokesman for his enemy Apocolypse Inc. He says "yes" so he can get money for Claire. Not knowing what he was doing, Apocolypse Inc. takes over Tromaville and makes everyone slaves to work for them. After Claire's surgery, she opens up Toxie's eyes and he has too battle with The Devil himself so there will be a better future and a room for Toxic Avenger Part 4. Written by Tromaville SPEAKER

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.
