As established late in Part 1, and as prominently exploited in this sequel, Toxie is more a superhero and not the bad guy we saw in him. The backstory's been taken care of, and it’s now time for real-time fast-paced wars with hoards of villains of all types: midgets, transgenders and other minorities that raise taboos and debate. Expect gore, racial jokes and burlesque.
All this is done in good taste, and it’s probably where the franchise succeeds best. The people behind this have no shame making the marginal evil, so as long as they’re the center of the plot. Toxic Avenger is true to himself and carries a lobbyist’s torch. He is more than ever defined here as an oppressed victim, not that any of it must be taken seriously. Still, the commentary is thick.
This is a new chapter in Toxic’s life and it should, in theory, trigger the start of many adventures. This is at least what the format and marketing suggest. This production is made for pure entertainment. It’s a cheap gimmick but with people creative and hard-work enough behind it to fill the runtime and still grab the audience. Prepare to be shocked and laugh about your own morals!
