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

...worst of all... if Tromaville was destroyed, there'd be no Toxic Avenger 3!
1 May 2009 | by lastliberalSee 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.
