Editorial Reviews

The long sought-after Japanese cut of the Toxic Avenger; this 98 minute version is now available in the US for the first time! Welcome to Tromaville, New Jersey -- a small American town, terrorized by criminals. The town's corrupt mayor sits idly by while muggers, robbers and teenage punks victimize helpless citizens. Among the residents of Tromaville is Melvin, a nerdy, emaciated janitor at the local health club. That is, until he becomes The Toxic Avenger! A gang of thugs devise a cruel hoax that goes horribly wrong as Melvin is cast through a third story window and into a vat of hazardous toxic waste. However, an unexpected metamorphosis takes place. As the chemicals take hold of his body, Melvin turns into the Toxic Avenger, doer of good, and brutal mauler of evil! The rest, as they say, is history! The excitement is non-stop as the hero sets out to single handedly wipe out the forces of evil that torment the people of Tromaville. The Toxic Avenger is non-stop entertainment that will leave the viewers glowing from the fun. Bonus Features include Production Stills and Trailers.

The Toxic Avenger is probably one of the best cult movies of its time and of course it brought Troma to life in every way possible. When I heard that this movie was coming out on DVD again and it was put in widescreen quality I thought "That's cool. Maybe they'll remaster it and give it a new digital makeover!" Man was I fooled. The 21st Anniversary edition packaging was cool but I played both the new one and the old one. The old one had a transfer that was way way better than the new one and the widescreen format didn't make much of a difference to the movie (than again Troma never did good transfers to their movies, but the original DVD of this movie has a way better transfer). The fullscreen transfer actually had a wider reach than the widescreen version. The extras on the new one are not much better than on the old one. even though it did include most of the stuff on the original version, some of the stuff on the original version was more helpful on the behind the scenes look to the movie. The new one showed mainly fans recreating classic scenes from the movie and the commentary track is different; the one on the original is way more informative. If you don't own the movie the two-disc version is at a cheap price but the original DVD release is cheaper and is definitely the better one to have.

Me, being a big fan of Troma, I did enjoy the movie, and I own the original DVD release. If you people are planning on upgrading to the 21st Anniversary Edition, you may be a little disappointed. I still give this movie a 5-star rating for the movie and for the original DVD release. But beware, as I say again, you may be disappointed with the new DVD release. I'd say only the elite die-hard fans will want the new version. I'm a die-hard fan but I'm perfectly happy with the original version. But the movie passes with flying colors. GO TOXIE!

PLOT:

In a town called Tromaville there is a gym where a little dweeb named Melvin works. He's a geek who gets on all the cool kids nerves. They plan a prank on him that ends seeing Melvin fall out of a window and land in a barrel of Toxic waste on the back of a truck parked outside. But instead of killing Melvin, it turns him into a hideously deformed creature of super human size and strength that develops Troma-zones that make Melvin fight crime when needed. Melvin helps the people of Tromaville and cleans up the town of its crime, while also getting revenge on the kids who caused him to become what he is.

Review

TA is a dark comedy full of action, horror and comedy that will not be accepted by people who take things too seriously. It is an over the top, cult style film. It's a breath of fresh air to have a movie with actors who aren't trying to steal the spotlight, or use the film as a stepping-stone to further there acting credibility for future reference. This movie would never win any academy award. But that's what we love about because we hate the academy awards anyway. Toxie is just a great movie of the little guy that was always pushed around finds himself in a situation that leads to him finishing on top...and also some wacky, gross, disgusting, silly, over drawn, ridicules things along the way. It's a fun movie but not something to sit down with grandma to watch.

Finally I was able to sit down, kick back and relax and watch the Toxic Avenger clearly and as a bonus, uncut. I've had the first 3 Toxies on VHS for years, but the videos where bad quality, warn out and the image was always rolling and fading, the sound was dropping in and out...

I really enjoyed this movie, but mostly because it was so juvenile. It was just plain FUN!! It wasn't a wel made film, and the acting was horrible. But it brought back memories of early "Showtime" when my kids and I had little, and it gave me a good laugh to think anyone could actually take this film serious.

this is a awesome movie. I remember the cartoon the toxic crusaders. but I did not know it was based on this movie. the special effects and make-up is pretty good for this movie when it was made. this movie is 2 years older than me. I did not know it was that old. I love this 80's movies. this is truly one of those underrated movies. great acting great special effects. and a good story. if you have not seen this movie then I recommend you do

This is the film that put Troma on the map...and pretty much the only reason Troma is still around today. I vividly remember renting this film for the first time in the mid-80's from my local Mom & Pop video store, and having a great evening with my high school buddies as this played. Re-watching it now on "Green"-Ray, the film still holds up, and it's as much a blast today as it was 30 years ago.

Melvin is a nerdy, wimpy janitor at the local Tromaville Healthclub. Unfortunately he draws the attention of a murderous group of thugs that workout at the club. Melvin finds himself the prime target of a prank by the gang, and ends up face down in a barrel full of toxic waste. Instead of dying, the toxic waste turns Melvin into The Toxic Avenger, a strong mutant with the ability to sniff out evil-doers.

Full of blood, boobs and laughs, "The Toxic Avenger" is tons of fun for those of us who enjoy these types of films.
