The Toxic Avenger 2 (1989)

The evil corporation Apocalypse, Inc. sets its sights on Tromaville as its new toxic waste dump, but one hideously deformed creature of superhuman size and strength stands in their way... The Toxic Avenger! Toxie is tricked into taking a trip to Japan to reunite with his long lost father, while Apocalypse, Inc. moves in to take over the town. If you thought the villains in Tromaville were wacky, wait until you get a load of the Japanese! Toxie faces off with ninjas, Kabuki warriors, Japanese schoolgirl transvestites, sumo wrestlers, and a new mutant menace before discovering Apocalypse's evil plot. All of the gratuitous, ultra-violent action and gore returns in THE TOXIC AVENGER PART II, topped off with plenty of the same ridiculous humor from before, but while the head-smashing, gut-ripping, and random acts of violence against fish are always welcome, the seemingly endless action sequences begin to ware as they pad out the run-time. Much of the cleverness has been dulled down as well, only to be replaced by stupid sight gags and more trashy exploitation, but who's complaining? Troma fans are sure to enjoy THE TOXIC AVENGER PART II just as much as the original.

Rating: 6/10.
Entertainment: 7/10.
