movie coverI'd rather be watching TV![IMDB link] [Netflix link] [Another review] The last Toxic Avenger sequel! Don’t watch this on Hulu or Fearnet, it’s censored!

UNCOMFORTABLE PLOT SUMMARY (inspired by this): [highlight for spoilers] Terrorists kill retards.

PEOPLE: Cameos! Lemmy (of Motorhead fame)!!! Corey Feldman (who Clint thought was in the 1st movie, but wasn’t, but didn’t notice this time!)! Stan lee narrates (prologue/epilogue). Hugh Hefner as The President. Ron Jeremy as the Mayor. Hank The Angry Drunken Dwarf as God. Fellow SubGenius Morgon Proctor in it for a bit as an extra!

A *third* actress for Toxie’s girlfriend Sarah/Claire (no, they couldn’t bother to use the same name OR actress in the various sequels, even though it’s very obvious it’s the same character. They addressed this in this movie by using both names.) The first was the hottest, the second often tricked you into thinking she was the hottest, because she was so slutty looking, sluttily acting, and unwholesome looking. This third one is still friggin’ hot, but so damn vapid and annoying that it detracts from her hotness. Don’t get me started on her alternate-universe version…

Eli Roth (Hostel, Inglourious Basterds) was in this too! As “beautiful young boy”. No, we did not notice. Yes, he is apparently friends with people in Troma and sometimes appears in minor roles in their films.

Mitch Cohen, original Toxie, is the one lynched by the KKK after he gives him blackface by burning his face on a hot car engine.

The girl who played Sweetie Honey, Lisa Terezakis, managed to get in 2 episodes of Strangers With Candy (which I don’t like).

Pompey (the black guy who became bodiless) played an uncredited fireman in the awesome comedy Grandma’s Boy.

QUIRKS: Yes, this deals with an alternate universe! It’s the most “sci-fi” of any of the 4 Toxic Avenger movies! The alternate Tromaville is Amortville; the alternate Toxic Avenger is the Noxious Offender.

Sgt. Kabukiman, NYPD is one of the main characters in this sequel — so fans of that Troma character should benefit from this.

This movie succeeds in being tasteless — the opening scene involves the mass murder of a bunch of retarded schoolchildren. And that’s just the *start*…

VISUALS: Just like any Troma movie! Bad-but-still-incredibly-gross special effects.

SOUNDTRACK: Just like in Toxic Avenger 1, they use Grieg’s Night On Bald Mountain — one of many ways in which this sequel is better than the previous two sequels.

MORALS: In a Troma movie?!?! Yeah, right!

GOOD STUFF: This is much more in the spirit of the original Toxic Avenger 1. Toxic Avenger 2 and Toxic Avenger 3 just weren’t nearly as good, but this is almost back up there with the original!

BAD STUFF: Carolyn thought there were parts that weren’t good.

CONCLUSION: This is the sequel that fixed the Toxic Avenger franchise! After two so-so sequels, this one finally did the original justice!

RATINGS:

Clint: Netflix: 4/5 stars. IMDB: 7.4/10.
Carolyn: Netflix: 3/5 stars. IMDB: 7/10.

The native public rating for this movie is: IMDB: 6.3/10, Netflix: 3.0/5 stars (Netflix‘s predicted rating for us was 3.7/5 stars–IT KNOWS!!).

IMDB ratings for all 4 Toxic Avenger movies: 1:5.8, 2:4.5, 3:3.2, 4:6.3. So this is the highest-rated one, by IMDB rating.
Netflix ratings for all 4 Toxic Avenger movies: 1:3.0, 2:2.9, 3:2.8, 4:3.0. So this is on par with the original, by Netflix rating.

RECOMMENDATION: Toxic Avenger fans who gave up after the first two sequels: You should actually check this out. It’s better than the previous two sequels!

SIMILAR MOVIES: Every Troma movie ever. Look for Toxic Avenger 5 in 2011 or so: He’s going to be dealing with raising children, and erectile dysfunction. So I hear.

MOVIE QUOTES:

“Drop your tacos or I’ll blow your brains out!” Always good.

Tito: Oh, GROSS! This whiskey tastes like pregnant lady piss!

God: And tell the Pope to stop talking about me, he doesn’t know me and tell him that his hat looks fucking stupid.

Tito: Listen, bitch! Just because I’m a tard, doesn’t mean you have to treat me like one. But because I’m “special”, I don’t think I’m ever going to get laid. So why can’t I masturbate?

FRIENDS’ RATINGS: Several people I talked to seemed to indicate that this was the one sequel they remembered the most. Hell, one was *IN* the film. Good stuff.
