Trivia

John Altamura was fired during production according to Llyod Kaufman and Ron Fazio for "abusing his authority". Ron Fazio, who plays an executive of Apokalypse Inc., was originally asked to only to be the Toxic Avenger's distant shot double . However, after Altamura's dismissal, Fazio was asked to play the part and provide the character's voice. Producers kept the scenes with John Altamura, hence both men are credited with the title role.

Not as good as the first but still awesome fun!
20 December 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The Toxic Avenger is a hilarious, fun, gory and exciting picture that really has it all. I didn't hear a lot of good things about the second tale of Toxie which was really bad to hear. Most of this negative attitude was centered around the "unrated" DVD that was actually heavily edited. Luckily the one I got was the true Director's Cut that ran around 106 minutes. This one had pretty much everything the first one had but the main thing that annoyed me was the change of actors. It just wasn't the same, the actors from the first weren't good but they brought a charm to the characters.

The plot in this one is crazier than that of the first. This time The Toxic Avenger is lured into Tokyo, Japan by Apocalypse Inc. While he is fighting crime in Tokyo Apocalypse Inc. is reeking havoc in Tromaville. As usual, it's up to Toxie to save the day.

The "unrated" version, as talked about before, apparently omits all the gore. And boy, there's a lot of it. We see plenty of great, gory stuff like intestines getting blown out of a guy's stomach from severe wheelchair trauma, roses being shoved into a man's eyes, someone getting chopped into sushi and much, much more. And the effects are actually really good.

Please, don't go into this seriously, take your brain out and watch it. It's a lot of fun and it should please Troma fans and gorehounds alike! 3/5.
