Starts off cleverly enough, then proceeds to badly staged low-budget war scene after badly staged low-budget war scene.

Audience Reviews for Troma's War

A group of plane crash survivors find themselves on an island inhabited by camouflage clad commandos.

A talentless cast, excessive gore, incredibly stupid dialog, and topless women. In other words, vintage Troma.

Thank God for troma! This is the epitome of low budget classic film making. Lloyd Kaufmen delivers the goods with TROMA'S WAR. GORE! GORE! GORE! NUDITY! AND it's funny to!

Troma is not known for it's big budgets but this one appears to have the biggest budget of any of their previous works. And you can tell that every dime went into the production.

Lloyd put together an impressive cast for this one, and introduced us to the great Joe Fleshieker (who returned in other Troma classics). The action is great. This is what we have coem to expect from Troma.

This is troma at it's best. I also recommend Toxic Avenger 1-3, Citizen Toxie, and Bloodsucking Freaks.

Oh and the brightest moment comes when one of the characters yells hysterically "I have AIDS! I have AIDS!" Yet, Troma's War is one of the more impressive films from the company's catalog with a clever plot and comment to foreign policy under the Reagan Administration. After a plane crash, survivors rally up to survive in an island inhabited by unfriendly terrorist and communist with a sinister plot to take down the US. They are terrorist since they are dress for it thanks to the pathos of Hollywood and world events of the 80's. They are unfriendly because the gun down one screaming woman while taking a handful of passengers prisoners. The groups leader accuse the survivors of being commandos, now that certainly is preposterous. Just ask the guy who happens to carry a blow dart with deadly venom and used care salesman who was in airborne and screams airborne every chance he gets. Director Samuel Weil and Michael Herz have really outdone themselves with this clever film and satire, but don't worry there is plenty of low brow humor to go around. "I have AIDS! I have AIDS!"
