The Toxic Avenger is probably one of the best cult movies of its time and of course it brought Troma to life in every way possible. When I heard that this movie was coming out on DVD again and it was put in widescreen quality I thought "That's cool. Maybe they'll remaster it and give it a new digital makeover!" Man was I fooled. The 21st Anniversary edition packaging was cool but I played both the new one and the old one. The old one had a transfer that was way way better than the new one and the widescreen format didn't make much of a difference to the movie (than again Troma never did good transfers to their movies, but the original DVD of this movie has a way better transfer). The fullscreen transfer actually had a wider reach than the widescreen version. The extras on the new one are not much better than on the old one. even though it did include most of the stuff on the original version, some of the stuff on the original version was more helpful on the behind the scenes look to...
In a town called Tromaville there is a gym where a little dweeb named Melvin works. He's a geek who gets on all the cool kids nerves. They plan a prank on him that ends seeing Melvin fall out of a window and land in a barrel of Toxic waste on the back of a truck parked outside. But instead of killing Melvin, it turns him into a hideously deformed creature of super human size and strength that develops Troma-zones that make Melvin fight crime when needed. Melvin helps the people of Tromaville and cleans up the town of its crime, while also getting revenge on the kids who caused him to become what he is.
TA is a dark comedy full of action, horror and comedy that will not be accepted by people who take things too seriously. It is an over the top, cult style film. It's a breath of fresh air to have a movie with actors who aren't trying to steal the spotlight, or use the film as a stepping-stone to further there acting credibility for future...
This is one of the best movies I have ever seen in my life. Gore, action, and humor all come together to make this incredible film, by an incredible company which is in fact, TROMA. This movie is funny throughout, and one can laugh at when one's guts are being pulled out, or my favorite; ripping off someone's arm and beating the person with it. The story of the movie is simple. A geek by the name of Melvin works at a health club, and being tormented by everyone there, he jumps out of the window and lands in a barrel of toxic waste. From that part on he is the Toxic Avenger, a being that destorys any form of evil that arises. This movie I would recommend to all, except for children because there is gore, violence, and some nudity. But other than that, this is one of the best movies I have ever seen, and definetley one of Troma's best.
