Absolute crap. Hard to sit through, no redeeming qualities. Might appeal to young teens but this movie is something you hopefully leave behind, like acne .

The Toxic Avenger knows that it's a cheesy, gory horror movie and that is what makes it so good. It's just an incredibly entertaining movie that more than lives up to its cult following.

Good, and fun Horror comedy. A good way to introduce audiences to Troma movie. Younger viewers obviously must stay away from this...even with adult supervision...because it's a comedy slash parody but it's full of violence, strong language,Good, and fun Horror comedy. A good way to introduce audiences to Troma movie. Younger viewers obviously must stay away from this...even with adult supervision...because it's a comedy slash parody but it's full of violence, strong language, gore and so on...
Young viewers can watch other b-movie...like Killer Tomatoes for example...still good but also more "polite".
Note: It's a low budget, undergound, B-movie...so you have to use a different yardstick to review this kind of show.

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Troma Production's flagship title, The Toxic Avenger, is one of the most gory, if not, the most vulgar superhero film of all time. Action-packed, gory, bloody and disgusting, the film offers a nonstop, low-art fun that manages to exceed anyone's expectation, particularly those who slam genre and cult films. The soundtrack is very 80's and is very apt on every scene, bringing life and color to the film's stark yet funny atmosphere. It's a film that begs not to be taken seriously, but fun and silly at the same time—a must-watch for cult film fanatics and comedy aficionados. Expand

“And you can tell all your scum friends that things are gonna change in this town. I'm not just another pretty face.” ☣️

A tour de farce for the longest running independent movie studio of all time, Troma’s triumph of trash is unapologetically cruddy, putrid and vulgar, particularly in its aggressive first act, but miraculously mutates into a veracious tongue-in-cheek superhero spoof thanks to a toxic vat of camp and fun. Striking big on a shoestring budget, directing duo Michael Herz and Lloyd Kaufman turn up the violence and gore to an extreme eleven with cheap special effects work that sometimes sickens, yet never detracts from the film’s goofy and warped charm. A few sleazy standouts include Mitch Cohen as the titular monster, the sadistic fan favourite Gary Schneider and Sandy Farina’s cheesy theme, “Body Talk”. 1984 saw this splatter comedy romp released to almost no reaction, yet today Tromaville’s flagship crime fighter has destroyed evil in three subsequent sequels, an animated kids’ tv series, a video game and even his own successful musical. Not just another pretty face after all.

8/10 mops to the face.
