Editorial Reviews

Troma Films' Toxic Avenger series shows its lack of legs with the second sequel to its 1985 hit. Despite a typically absurd premise, which has Toxie battling Satan to save his hometown of Tromaville, the film lacks the go-for-broke gags and gore that made the first two films such guilty pleasures. Part of the reason for this may be that the movie was culled from footage shot for The Toxic Avenger, Part II; Troma heads Lloyd Kaufman (who also helmed the feature) and Michael Herz simply stitched together Part III from the loose ends. While haphazard construction is part of the charm of Troma's films, the relatively high quality of the Toxic Avenger series raised the bar, and the slapdash nature of Part III is more of a disappointment than a campy source of humor. True to their nature, Troma disregarded the drubbing this film received and completed a fourth entry, Citizen Toxie. --Paul Gaita

Product Description

The New York Post raves, proclaiming Toxic Avenger III to be "Troma’s ‘Intolerance,’ with bigger sets and higher aspirations." The third 35mm theatrical hit in director Lloyd Kaufman’s wildly successful Toxic Avenger series finds our hideously deformed creature of superhuman size and strength battling his most formidable foe to date- the Devil himself! He's cleaned up Tromaville. He's conquered Tokyo. The Toxic Avenger series has set a new standard for independent action/comedies, transcending the limitations of low-budget filmmaking to become a bona fide worldwide phenomenon! The Toxic Avenger Part III continues this tradition in high style with eye-popping, gut-wrenching special effects, explosive action, and the unmistakably Tromatic sense of humor.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Toxic Avenger 3 February 1, 2013
With no crime left to fight in Tromaville, The Toxic Avenger is forced to find a day job in order to make ends meet, but there is only one company willing to hire a hideously deformed creature of super-human size and strength, and that's Apocalypse, Inc., Toxie's arch-nemesis! Toxie unwittingly becomes a pawn of corporate greed and corruption, turning his back on Tromaville when they need him the most! THE TOXIC AVENGER PART III starts off with a bang as Toxie mops up a group of criminals that are trying to replace all of the Independent films in a local video store with mainstream fodder as the patrons plea with them to let them keep their Troma movies. It is one of Troma's shining moments in the series, but it is all downhill from there. The anti-corporate message wares thin quickly, but something just seems missing the entire time... Mainly the over-the-top comedy and absurd gore, both of which have disappeared throughout most of the picture. Ron Fazio and Phoebe Legere are always entertaining as Toxie and Claire, and the snarling antics of Rick Collins' Chairman do make for a fun performance. In reality, THE TOXIC AVENGER PART III is a hackneyed cut and paste job using all of the left over footage from THE TOXIC AVENGER PART II, leaving the third film out as a festering barrel of toxic sludge. As a result, the final half becomes dreadfully boring due to the seemingly endless battle against Apocalypse, Inc. Savor what few laughs you can from the blindsploitation, churchsploitation, and schoolbusploitation or forget that this entry ever existed.

2.0 out of 5 stars I feel let down. July 25, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I bought this movie having high expectations after seeing the first one(best movie ever created by man). I popped it in and was pissing my pants in excitement. Little did I know that what stood before me would be the biggest let down in my 16 year life. The one part that made me smile was in the beginning when Toxie ripped that bad guy's intestines out and wrapped them around his neck. I have very high hopes for Toxic Avenger 4 since they really need to make up for this one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Pretty boring! September 26, 2011
By S. Der
The movie started out good. You see Toxic have a pretty good fight scene with some bad guys. Then, it goes off telling us about what happened to get to that point. Well, that was when it got bad. Toxic turned Corporate and turns his back to the people. After that it gets boring because there's really no story to get, he just goes around thinking about what he has done. Then, after he finally realized that he was wrong. He then trys to do right. The only thing is that there's no good fights scenes. All there is boring talking and cheap stunts to see. Then, Toxic just wins and the movie is over. This was pretty disappointing to watch.

3.0 out of 5 stars Toxic Avenger Part III June 1, 2007
By Gitters
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Toxic Avenger Part III is pretty much made up off leftover footage from the Toxic Avenger Part II. That being known, you can tell Toxic Avenger III has a paper thin script. The best part of the movie is the fight scene in the video store, where he rips out a guys intestines.

The plot involves the Toxic Avenger working for the devil, the chairman of Apocalypse Inc, which really doesn't make any since. He battled Apocalypse Inc in Toxic Avenger Part II, so he would already know that Apocalypse Inc is bad. Toxic Avenger wants to get Claire an eye operation. Why is her name Claire in Toxic Avenger II & III, when her name was Sarah in the original? So, if you watched the first two Toxic Avenger movies Part III is going to seem kind of stupid and pointless. Even though is movie pretty much contradicts Toxic Avenger II, I still give it three stars because I enjoyed the first two so much, if you forget about what you know first the first two films part III is fairly entertaining. If you didn't like Toxic Avenger II stay away from this one!

3.0 out of 5 stars An OK sequel! May 24, 2007
After the events of part 2, lovable monster superhero Toxie must still deal with the evil forces of the greedy corporation known as Apocalypse Inc. as he struggles to get his fiancee Claire an eye operation to restore her sight. He joins Apocalypse Inc. and becomes a yuppie then the hero every Tromaville citizen loves, unknown to him that the owner of the corporation is actually satan who plans on taking over the town of tromaville but can Toxie regain back his soul and take on the dark lord himself or will Tromaville including humanity will suffer?

An all-right entry of the series though it's not as good as the first, second and fourth entries! The splatter is well done but there's not much of them as shown in the other parts of the saga but the laughs are still there.

This DVD has good picture and sound with the unrated director's cut and cool extras like trailers to this and other Troma movies, an introduction by Toxie creator and Troma president Lloyd Kaufman, interviews with cast, interactive troma map, Toxic Avenger museum with stills and merchandise gallery, easter eggs, where in the world is Toxie? featurette and more.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Weakest Of All TA's, but still enjoyable. June 29, 2005
I first got into the Toxic Avenger with this very movie years ago. I loved the humour and the over the top goofyness of it. I became a fan 'cause of this movie and then later on saw Toxie 1 and saw why people didnt like the sequels 'cause they where more comedy driven then gore, like the original.

However, part II does has some great re-inserted gore bits that makes it better then it's original release. I was hoping that this one, part III, the directors cut would have re-inserted some bloody awsome grouseme shots. But, I hardly noticed any changes at all from the old VHS copy I had.

It had been a long time since I watched any of the Toxies, and watching them all on DVD in the correct order, i did see why this movie is said to be the weakest of them all, it does drag for a while through the middle of it and doesnt pick up untill the end. But there is still some great scenes in it.. however, I cant say you will enjoy it, some will, some wont, it depends on taste and how much you loved the first movie I guess.

The DVD contains the movie. The movies fine, except it looked a bit faded in color. The subtitles are screwed up.
