"The first Toxie was brilliant..the second funny..this sucked"

"By now we all know the story behind The Toxic Avenger parts 2 and 3. They were made to be one cohesive film, it was too long, hence divided into two halves or movies. It was an interesting experiment, leave it to Troma to try something like that, however the results left a lot to be desired.
After watching parts 2 and 3, it becomes evident that this hardly bears any resemblence to the original Toxic Avenger at all. Toxie has a totally different outgoing personality, he looks different, even his name was changed from Melvin Fyrd to Melvin Junko. Nevertheless the first half (part 2) was bearable, though the plot had more holes than a slice of swiss cheese...
The Toxic Avenger 3: The Last Temptation of Toxie is virtually plotless. Comprised almost entirely of remainder footage from part 2, the film is almost confusing in its similarity. The first 30 minutes is the same concept as part 2, Toxie ranting about the lack of meaning in his life and how depressed he is. Eventually he gets a job at Apocalypse Inc. (Yes the same one he just defeated in the previous film...I guess they just never went away). When the town learns of his alliance with the evil Apocalypse, they turn their backs on the hero. Realizing his mistake, Toxie sets out to make everything right again in a confrontation with the devil himself.
I'm not going to comment on the dialogue, or special effects, or screenplay, because this is a Troma film. I realize that what Troma does is meant to be tongue-in-cheek, but this flick is pretty bad even for that type of film. Toxic 3 is just a hodgepodge of left over footage that translates into one giant, nonsensical continuity error. If you enjoyed the original, I'm sure you want to see every Toxic Avenger movie. (I know I did!) But if you can resist, just skip this one."
This was a Disappointment

"As much as I like Troma films, this movie was seriously disappointing. As a fan of the first two films in the Toxic Avenger series I was expecting a lot more from this third installment. Instead, this movie is a large step backwards from the previous two. The acting is horrible, the fight scenes are awful, and the plot is lacking.
And it features one of the worst endings ever. The "videogame" showdown makes little to no sense. Regardless of whether or not you're a Troma fan I recommend steering clear of this one."
If It's A Comedy, Shoudn't It Be Funny?

"I laughed a lot to the first TOXIC AVENGER, I laughed a little more to the second TOXIC AVENGER. I may have laughed about twice during the third TOXIC AVENGER. That's right! It's that boring. I assume only a ten year old would like this film. I know I didn't. Again it's nothing like the original, but it's exactly like the second.What I don't get, is why Apocalypse Inc. is back after Toxie eliminated them. Bringing them back was very unoriginal. They shouldn't even have a crime business in this one, because the first one didn't. The first one was the only one that was a bit realistic.The only funny part is what Toxie does with a criminal's intestines at the beginning. And the only fight scene worth watching, is the ending. But the ending isn't that great either. That's how bad this film is.
During the film, stars of the movie admit they're in the movie. Not saying that, that is stupid, because there are movies like that. But, the first one didn't mention anything like that, so why should the second?It just looks as if the directors Michael Herz, and Lloyd Kaufman didn't even try on improving this film. It looks like they were just looking for a few bucks to put in their pocket.The jokes are old in this one, not that there are many of those in them anyway, but I noticed they stole a joke from the first TOXIC AVENGER hoping people wouldn't notice. For example, the mother being gruesome joke. The actors also can't even make the joke sound funny. The original actor who told that joke made it sound hilarious.I sure hope CITIZEN TOXIE: THE TOXIC AVENGER PART IV is worth watching when it comes out. I'm hoping that it will be more like the first TOXIC AVENGER. This film is pretty rare, and the video store I got it at, was the only video store that I've seen it at. So if you feel like this movie is something you need to see, then go ahead and rent it, because that may be your only chance to get it. But don't be a bonehead, and go buy it. Wait to see what you think about it.I hope my long review was helpful to you!"
