Citizen Toxie: Toxic Avenger 4, The (2000) * 1/2 (out of 4) Fourth film in The Toxic Avenger series is a major disappointment but it is a step up from the previous film. The Diaper Mafia are killing people off so it's up to Toxie and his sidekick Lardass to save the day but they get sent off to Oz where they encounter a bad Toxie. As usual, there's plenty of politically incorrect humor, which is sometimes funny and sometimes not. The spoof of the real life event of a black guy being dragged behind a car is really offensive even for Troma standards and why director Lloyd Kaufman would put this is in beyond me. There are some funny scenes but with a running time of 110 minutes the film just goes on way too long and wears its welcome out around the thirty minute mark. Hank the Drunken Angry Dwarf from the Howard Stern Show plays God.


IMDb reviews are full of hyperbole, and no one likes reviews claiming that a decent film is the best movie ever. However, that won't stop me from saying Citizen Toxie is the richest, most entertaining action comedy I have EVER seen. Every element (except, of course, the quality of the images and special effects, which is acceptable given the $500,000 budget) of the production is beautifully polished, and every second of the film has more raw "fun" than a person can take in during a single viewing.That said, many people just won't get it. I consider myself a fan of crude humor, but even I can't watch the first 20 minutes of the film, which feature retarded children getting shot, without feeling uncomfortable. And if you've never seen a Troma movie before, you'll probably get so hung up on the poor quality of the DVD transfer and makeup/special effects that you won't be able to watch the movie itself.For everyone else, this movie is fantastic. It has a clever and engrossing plot and a creative cast of charming characters, and is so completely packed with action, subtle (really!) and not-so-subtle humor, and pure fun that even after four viewings, I get completely sucked in to the story and laugh all the way through. It's easily Troma's best film, and (this sounds blasphemous) the original "Toxic Avenger" doesn't even compare. I can't wait to see what comes next.PS-I showed select, pg-13 segments of this film to my aging parents see what normal people think of it, and they loved it too.

OK, I have only wised up to Troma's greatness within the last 5 years, so I'm still finding the ones I like. Mostly, the one's by Lloyd I like... this one kicks a**! Right behind Sgt. Kubkiman, NYPD, ToxieIV is my favorite Troma outing to date. As the other reviews have said, yes there's the required Troma gore, gags and boobies... and who doesn't like naked people covered in blood? OK, lots of people, but those aren't the people Troma's aiming at! Toxie IV has lots of funny lines, great camp, and it is pretty high technical quality, for a Troma movie. The extras are great and fun to watch. And someone else said that Troma can't be found at video stores, and as for Blockbuster, no they don't carry Troma cause they are way too mainstream. However, every Hollywood video here in Albuquerque has Troma in it... the Hollywood film library at Juan Tabo & Candelaria actually has over 50 Troma titles in stock, including all 4 Toxies! Maybe that's not the case everywhere, but at least here in NM Hollywood loves Troma! NM loves Troma (hence the TramDance NM Film Festival)! Troma Troma Troma! Oh, ps, Tito, while an extremely offensive character, is too funny!!!!
