Michael: What am I worried about? I'm 22 years old, I'm backpacking through France... Life is wonderful. Oh, who am I kidding. Michael J. Fox is a major motion picture star and I'm making a Killer Tomatoes movie, part 4!. What am I worried about? I'm making a movie. I'm filming in France. I've got a piece of the merchandising! It beats dinner theater.

Killer Tomatoes Eat France!: And so the quadrilogy comes to a close
30 September 2017 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

John DeBello provides us one final Killer Tomato movie and honestly that's probably a good thing.

Professor Gangreen and his incompetent lacky Igor have one more shot at world domination, this time involving an ancient prophecy and the king of France.

Much like the 3rd film there are laughs to be had but most is purile filler and the charm of the first film is thoroughly gone.

John Astin is great once again but the novelty is beyond being worn thin and as much as I think the franchise accomplished something it's definitely best that this film be it's death rattle.

Essential viewing for fans of the series, but as a standalone film this has very little to offer.

The Good:

Brilliant opening credits jokes

The Bad:

Generally very stale

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

Singing tomatoes are still better than 90% of the UK top 40

Bra's make great parachutes for fluffy talking tomatoes....wait, what?

The french armies ammunition of choice are baguettes

The Hunchback of Notre Dame isn't 100% certain but he has a hunch
