...worst of all... if Tromaville was destroyed, there'd be no Toxic Avenger 3!
1 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You are either going to find the Toxic Avenger films funny, or incredibly stupid. Well, maybe they are so incredibly stupid that they are funny. They certainly grow on you the more you watch them.

In this second adventure, all the great stuff happens in Japan. The fish-nose bit is hilarious.

But, before Toxie gets to Japan, he fights off the evil minions that are attempting to take over Tromaville. Those who are averse to blood and guts may find his methods a little hard to take.

In japan, he finds his father, Big Mac (Rikiya Yasuoka) with the help of a girl (Mayako Katsuragi) he saved from more evildoers. His father is evil also and he meets an inglorious end at the hands of a fish market owner. Toxie dispatches all his father's henchmen, and one henchwoman (Maya Shiraki), who manages to provide some real comic relief. Lots of gore in Tromaville, and plenty of nudity in Japan.

Returning home, he sets out to clean up the mess that happened while he was gone. And, he unites with his real father.

The production values were top notch in this film. The costumes in Japan were really colorful and I can see why it was such a hit there.
