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 »


The Toxic Avenger: Oh man, toxic shock.
The Chairman: No, not toxic shock just your imagination set free! Look at it, a perfect world with a Porsche in every drive way, Chicken McNuggets in every pot, and you, you Melvin, smack dab in the middle of it. Loved by millions the world over, you'll be more popular than The Beatles and Elvis combined!
The Toxic Avenger: Gee, that's a lot for minimum wage!

Started out well...but...
20 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

By the way this started I thought it was gonna be better than 2...maybe not better than 1 but better than 2. From the opening scene, however, it goes way downhill. Very disappointing since some of TOxie's greatest, goriest, and funniest kills are shown in the opening scene. Theat scene is seriously the ONLY gore scene in the film, except a little at the end. The rest is turned into some type of "family" comedy. Not for the family, but a regular comedy. Some of the jokes are funny, when Toxie is talking like a tennis player...cracks me up. But most of the jokes fall flat. It is, however, still fun to see Toxie kill the bad guys. We just want it with more gore. This film barely even has any nudity! Troma without nudity is like Easter without eggs! Come on Troma is known for their gore and nudity. Basically needed in most Troma films with some exceptions...like Kabukiman. However the other Toxic Avengers had it and it is missing. There is a n homage to the original in this one though, about his Mother-In-Law. Classic. Overall, not horrible but not great. Seen a lot of better Toxic films. Worth a watch if you are a Troma fan.
