makes toxie one a masterpiece
The first Toxie was dumb fun, but it should never have been made a "franchise."
Lacks the energy of its predecessor, but there's enough campy cheeze to entertain the schlock fans.
It's trashy, cheap garbage and Troma wouldn't have it any other way.
This sequel is more on the comedic side than the first one was, almost like a spoof of a sequel to the first. I found it really funny sometimes, and at other times hard to endure.
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!
"Toxie", New Jersey's only superhero, is lured to Japan by an evil corporation that wants to buy up his hometown of Tromaville to make it into an industrial waste dumping ground and general dystopia. With its long bloody brawls with an endless supply of ridiculously costumed goons and punks, it's even sillier (and moderately funnier) than the original, and much less mean-spirited while still retaining its politically incorrect edge.
