The battle rages from the dungeon of France's newest tourist attraction, "Igor's Really Big Castle," to a Ben Hur-style car chase around the Arc de Triomphe and a heavy metal rock riot at the Louvre.

Michael, who's touring France, shanks mare, and Marie, a beautiful French country girl, are the film's romantic interest and also the pair who hope to squash Gangreen's plans of world conquest. Angela Visser, former Miss Universe, plays Marie and is surprisingly good in the role not to mention cute as a bug. The scene where Michael and Marie are sharing dinner with her parents is a riot!
The killer tomatoes themselves now have facial features, fangs and all, which I thought detracted a little from the whimsical absurdity of the concept which, after all, is a good part of the Tomato series' appeal.
Off beat (way off!) satirical humor with sight & sound gags that don't let up make these films work. I don't mean to sound like a prude but the squeaky-clean language and the near total lack of sexual innuendo is a refreshing departure from most current films.
I'm a fan!
There. I've gotten the bad out of the way. Now for the good. Based off the Killer Tomato cartoon, itself based off Return of the Killer Tomatoes, (and even featuring a couple of the toys based on the show, see if you can spot them) this forth entry allows the film series to go out on a high note. If you enjoyed the first two movies, you'll love this one as well. This is the movie promised at the end of Return ("See you in France!"), why they went ahead with the inferior Strikes Back instead is beyond me. This is also perhaps the most easily accesable film to show the non-fan, as you don't have to know much about the first three to enjoy it and it's not as "out there" as the first film. I love the individual faces of the main tomatoes in this movie, giving the veggies of doom a sense of character lacking in other entries. The humor is spot on, John Astin gives his best performance as Gangrene and the resulting movie sparkles with wit and laughs. If you enjoy Killer Tomatoes at all, if you even just smirk at the title, you owe it to yourself to watch Killer Tomatoes Eat France.

Yep all our favorite bad guys are back as Professor Gangreen finds a prophecy that will help him rule the world. All he has to do is make Igor (Steve Lundquist) into Louis The XXVII, the king of France.
Of course standing in his was, is our lovable FT (Fuzzy Tomato who is famous by now), Michael J. Fox ... oops Marc Price our unlikely hero, and to new tomato on the block, Marie "the French girl" (Angela Visser). Marie reminds us that this film is rated PG.
While we are waiting the tough of war of power and the war from Guatemala over the French McEnroe Line, one has to wonder if the Professors diabolical scheme will bear fruit, especially tomatoes.
Be prepared for every French cliché. And just who is the man in the mask?
Just when you think it is over be sure to read the credits closely.

I had no idea this movie was made. It was much better then I expected it to be. Again a great 'old school' campy horror/humor. Just plain fun to watch. Read morePublished on September 13, 2012 by Jay Schmitt
