Toxie's mean, green, and back on the screen! Melvin Junko was a nerdy 98lb weakling until he fell into a vat of toxic waste, turning him into the first ever superhuman superhero from New Jersey. This time the hideously deformed creature of superhuman size and strength takes on Tokyo.
The Toxic Avenger Part II is a spectacular sequel with even more ingenious special effects, even more bizarre action, and even more unbelievably famous fight scenes. He's come a long way from Tromaville, baby!

Where others may see a steaming pile of hot cheese in this F-grade camp/action/comedy/superhero/sexy/gorefest, those with rudiments in the genre will see the master-craftsmanship that went in to making this movie a reality. It's the only part of the quadrilogy that I've yet seen, but I've seen it dozens of times, always in the back catalog of on demand streaming services.
I gave my wife this exact introduction last night, when I explained to her why I had just purchased the 7 DVD box set of this zenith of film making. We popped the metaphorical popcorn and sat down to watch the unrated directors cut I am now reviewing.
Right from the get go I can tell the pacing of this cut is much slower, and to good effect. It really gives you some time to get into the world of the toxic avenger and understand its rules. To fully enjoy this movie you have to selectively turn off the parts of your brain that deal with abstract, and spacial, reasoning and logic. My wife kept wanting to jump in and point out where the plot was beginning to veer course out of continuity and I begged her, "just wait, you ain't seen nothing yet."
Toxie's dialog in this cut, as in the theatrical, is priceless gold. Virtually ever line spoken from the leather-faced ghoul is worthy of an award, monument, or possibly even a tattoo for the courageous. I won't give away much about the extra scenes compared to the original, but I'm sure you'll be delighted to know there's more nudity and violence than ever before.
Kids these days think Deadpool was the first superhero movie to break the rules an genre bend into dark gory comedy. They should put down there pokie mans, pass the peace pipe and watch the toxic avenger. See what comedy could be when you didn't have to pander to internet memes and bathroom-stall quality dick jokes. See what a few million dollars of gore buys you before CGI. I tell you, it is beautiful. A movie like this will never be made again in the same way those classic hiphop albums could not be made today. The industry has changed too much. We went down a different path and there's no going back. There's thousands of unlicensed references to pop-culture mania from a half dozen michael jackson dance moves in the first fight scene, to an Evil Dead easter egg, insane pyrotechnics, prosthetics... it's all here folks. Heck, 50% of the movie is dedicated to boarding-exploitative Japanophilia.
Well anyway, toxic avenger represents, to me, the road not taken. An independent film maker pouring his life work, his absolute opus, into an adventure so unabashedly farcical, that I'm sure there were more than a few points in the journey he questioned his own sanity and the sanity of those who agreed to work with him. Lloyd Kaufman is the Icarus to mel brooks' Daedalus. He is an anaconda to monty's python. He deserves recognition on the galactic stage. He found beauty in the absurd, in doing so, showed us how absurd we, ourselves, are, and how beautiful that makes us.

This edition of the Toxic Avenger is excellent with no enjoyment wrecking cuts - just good old wholesome carnage and laugh out loud shenanigans from Toxie.
Recommended - enjoy.
