Cruddy, primal, extremely violent, and fairly entertaining, it captures some of the snot-flicking spirit of the old EC comics. Full Review

The humor is not merely sophomoric and silly, it's aggressively so, and the bargain basement gore effects are over-the-top and excessive. Full Review

Rating: 1/4 -- Though it is silly, sleazy, and graphically violent, The Toxic Avenger does hold a bit of warped charm for fans of this sort of thing. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- The Toxic Avenger is an incredibly bizarre flick, combining silly jokes with outrageous gore, but it works. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- It's your basic nerd revenge fantasy, only decked out in gore and over-the-top, bad-taste gags. Full Review

An outlandish mix of gory violence and realistic special effects. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- [It] may be trash, but it has a maniacally farcical sense of humor, and Tromaville's evildoers are dispatched in ingenious ways.

Description by OLDIES.com:

Welcome to TROMAVILLE, NEW JERSEY ... a small American town, terrorized by criminals. The town's corrupt mayor sits idly by, while muggers, robbers and teenage punks victimize helpless citizens. Among the residents of Tromaville is MELVIN, a nerdy emaciated janitor at the local health club. That is, until he becomes THE TOXIC AVENGER! A gang of thugs devise a cruel hoax that goes horribly wrong as Melvin is cast through a third story window into a vat of hazardous toxic waste. However, an unexpected metamorphosis takes place. As the chemicals take hold of his body, Melvin turns into the TOXIC AVENGER, doer of good, and brutal mauler of evil! The rest, as they say, is history! The excitement is non-stop as the hero sets out to single handedly wipe out the forces of evil that torment the people of Tromaville. THE TOXIC AVENGER is non-stop entertainment that will leave the viewers glowing from the fun. See the film that spawned the comic book, website, cartoon, action figures and three sequels to date! Experience the action that made Troma Entertainment a cinematic legend! Still a classic three decades later! See THE TOXIC AVENGER!
