Trivia

The scene where Toxie squashes a man's nose into a taiyaki was the first idea that Lloyd Kaufman came up with for the sequel, during his visit to Tokyo to promote his first film, The Toxic Avenger (1984). See more »

Goofs

When Toxie crushes one of his enemies in a wheelchair and his intestines are pushed out, one shot shows his intestines already hanging by his legs. By the next shot, his bloody intestines are being pushed out again. See more »

Quotes

Toxic Avenger: At first I found it hard to believe that my father was Japanese, and that I was part-Japanese. But that would explain why I've always had these strange, non-American urges to work very hard, save money, and live without credit cards.

Alternate Versions

The full uncut version from Japan contains 10 extra minutes,which include:
  • The wheelchair death is gorier and quite longer. He squeezes his body till his intestines burst out of his stomach (along with buckets of blood). Then Toxie takes the wheelchair, picks it up and thorws it aside.
  • The villain who gets choked with the vine and has roses shoved into his eye shockets is gorier and longer. It shows Toxie choking him more and also blood squirting out his neck (he also spits out blood) and it also shows Toxie shoving the roses in his eyes.
  • A gorier version of the scene when Toxie punches the Blackvillain's face in showing blood run down his face and also his body droping to the ground, showing what's left of his head.
  • When Toxie bashes the two villains; heads off, it usually cuts to them dancing; in the uncut print their bodies first drop to the ground, causing blood to splash out of their necks (and it also shows toxie tearing hair from their scalps!)
  • The Indian villain's death shows Toxie tearing his ears off his head
  • Toxie chases down 3 rapists and kills 2; in the R-rated version the 3rd one (a woman) is never shown. In the uncut print he chases her to a radio station where he shoves cords, microphones in her body
  • A scene showing Toxie and the japenese chick playing a game.
  • A new scene of Toxie complaning that everyone in Japan is staring at him.
  • Two fights scenes are added. One between two warriors (one gets crushed by Toxie's foot and the other gets thrown on some stand) and a japanese dragqueen who keeps trying to rape Roxie

Pass on the wasabi
9 August 2014 | by westside-surferSee all my reviews

I watched part 1 a few days ago and totally blown away, so much that I craved a second helping. Toxic Avenger goes to Tokyo, the land of weirdness, has to be cool, right?

At the start something immediately stuck out. They slapped a Halloween mask on the Toxic Avenger. It seriously looks as if the make bought a mask at Target. Part one got Toxie's look perfect. How could they screw up this bad? And not just the face, his entire outfit looks slapped together.

The beginning opens up with some gory awesomeness. It's looking to be a good movie. Everything is looking good until Toxie goes to Tokyo. At that point the movie really takes a plunge. There's a few over-the-top scenes were great to watch. Everything in between those scenes seems slapped together on the spot. Maybe the film crew felt out of place in Japan.

It just didn't have the confidence of the first one. Actually, scratch that, part one is the only true Toxic Avenger movie. Part two should have paid for its dishonor in the true Japanese fashion by disemboweling itself for shaming a classic.
