Product Description

En route to a vacation in the tropics, a plane full of American tourists crash-lands on a remote Caribbean island that is home to a ruthless terrorist group. The survivors are hunted, captured, brutalized, and pushed to the limits of human endurance until they fight back and declare WAR!

Originally released during the 1980's, a decade of American cold war yuppie machismo, Troma's War is Troma's answer to Reagan and Rambo.

Troma, best known at the time, (and pretty much still,) for "The Toxic Avenger," put this truly demented military-action epic together in the late 1980s. It was originally only available in a massively butchered, (thanks, MPAA,) R-rated version and did very poorly, but now it's finally available uncut on VHS and DVD.. and your action-movie education isn't complete until you've seen this film. The plot involves the racially/socially mixed survivors of a terrible plane crash, (a black priest, a blind girl, a Nam vet, a fat guy, a rock band, etc. to name a few) discovering that the island they have "landed" on is populated by a terrorist army planning a secret invasion of the U.S. Great setup for even a traditional action movie, but "Troma's War" goes off in a direction best described as "G.I. Joe on amphetamines," with bloodier-than-Rambo battles, a pig-nosed villian, martial arts, human-ear necklaces, facially-conjoined twins, tongue-removal-torture and an ASTONISHINGLY offensive henchman named Senor Sida, who's "special power" is something I probably can't discuss on a family webpage. ANY sensibilities you may have, this movie will offend... and it's probably the most constantly violent movie in even the Troma library, so it makes one GREAT party tape. Stick around after the credits.

Why I continue to plod my way through Troma's catalog of schlock movies is a question not easily answered. "The Toxic Avenger" holds a special place in my heart because that movie was my first real gore film experience. Since then, I have seen many more films from Lloyd Kaufman's warped studio, and none of them ever really matches that first Toxic Avenger picture. If you are not familiar with Troma, they are a movie production company dedicated to releasing the worst trash films in cinematic history. The people at Troma actually revel in their reputation for bad taste through massive self-promotion in all forms of media. "Troma's War" shares attributes with nearly every other Troma film I have seen: atrocious and hammy acting, cheesy but gruesome effects, lame musical scores, pedestrian pacing, and tasteless humor.
The impetus for "Troma's War" is a plane full of civilians crash landing on a seemingly deserted island. Not many passengers survive, but those who do constitute a broad cross section of American society. You have a Catholic priest (who is a great singer!), a trio of rock and roll wannabes, a slimy businessman, a blind girl, the requisite hunky guy and gal, a Vietnam vet (who really gets into the war: he wears a necklace made out of human ears and has the best death scene in the movie), a British guy with a blowgun and poison darts, a few old folks, and a woman with a baby. The surviving passengers spend the first scenes of the movie just trying to figure out what happened and to map a plan of action. When hunky guy Taylor decides to explore the island, he discovers a roving band of soldiers armed with assault weapons slogging through the forest.

troma's war was a [kicking] movie.it had the usual humor that you would expect from a troma movie,but it also had some serious parts and good war/shooting scenes.this is probably one of my favorite troma movies and i dont really like war movies,but this one was an exception.This movie has a lot of extra features like every troma dvd so overall it is a very solid disc.Don't bother renting it,just go out and buy the best ... war movie ever
Rated R for strong violence/gore,language,and nudity

TROMA'S WAR is a classic twisted action film from Troma Films. The film is about a plane that crashes on a deserted island, and the survivors from the plane crash accidentally stumble onto the secret hideout of terrorists that are planning a secret invasion of the United States. Now the survivors must band together not just to save themselves but to save the free world. This film has all the complimentary violence, action, nudity, and sick humor that you would come to expect from any Troma film!

This film turns the tables on the Bush/Reagan-approved "military chic" of the eighties, taking the Ubermerikkkan propaganda that was GI JOE and Rambos II and III and turning it around into a call to arms for the common man against the elites that opress us. As "out-there" as the bad guys (and good guys) seem in this film, you must keep in mind that they are all charicatures to show us how wall street will stab you in the back to protect his neck and pocketbook, how the church has had its tongue ripped out by the powers that be (though it sings on through the blood), and how the true American spirit (not to mention our children's free will) can only be saved when we seperate Military and Monetary powers. Even through the (once-again) EXTREMELY GI JOE-esque visuals, storytelling and soundtrack, this film uses powerful symbolism in the manner of Dali's "Le Sangre D'un Poete" and Orwell's "Animal Farm" to push us over the edge and into seeing what our (barely) free minds are up against. All great art is shocking at the time of release, dated as expired within three weeks, and (seeing how everything in this film is coming true) we will all be studying Troma's War in art school in fifty years tops! If you don't believe that, then you probably think our president was elected legally. Welcome to the Infiltration, I hope you brought a condom!

Steer clear of the R-rated version, as it has had not only its tongue, but also it's heart severed by the MPAA. Not a film for normal Tromites just looking for cheap thrills - THIS IS A THINK PIECE!*
