The Toxic Avenger Part II

After the events of the first film, Toxie has settled down with his girlfriend Claire.  Tromaville with it’s dancing citizens and safe streets is a really nice place to live but the evil corporation Apocalypse Inc. has other ideas.  They want to use Tromaville as their dumping ground of all their waste, in turn letting them take over the world but their have an obstacle, Toxie.

After the local home for the blind is blown up, Toxie is lured away to Japan in search of his Father who left when he was a baby. He meets up with a local girl who he saves from some hoodlums and together they search for ‘Big Mac’ Toxie’s Dad.

Toxic Avenger Part II amps up the un-PC humour and violence from the first film.  Nothing is sacred we have tasteless blind people gags, gratuitous pointless nudity, unusual and inspired kills and plenty of fighting.  In fact the film probably has some of the longest fight scenes in history.  Toxic takes on all manner of bad guys, cross dressers, ninjas, fish-men and midgets.  It’s all done in the unique Troma style with silly sound effects and questionable ADR, frankly it’s a real blast.

It’s not for the easily offended (get a life – it’s only a movie!), but it’s got a big heart in the loveable Toxie and any film where blind people find their way to the dining room using a clothes line gets my vote.
