However, that won't stop me from saying Citizen Toxie is the richest, most entertaining action comedy I have EVER seen.

theres just something about the toxic avenger that is just ultimately sexy and thrilling and rock-star glamorous.

The storyline was solid, although it dragged in some moments, it was forgivable and still enjoyable.

What follows is the absolute, wildest, most out of hand, unpredictable day in the history of Tromaville...

Toxie even removes one victim's guts and other organs despite the fact that this member of the mafia has a detonator for a bomb(a bomb with a very slow timer).

The story is fun, it moves along like a rocket & is a pretty entertaining & funny film if you have a slightly twisted sense of humour.

But "Citizen Toxie: The Toxic Avenger IV" is actually an amazingly entertaining and creative movie that non-Troma fanscould enjoy.

One by director Lloyd Kaufman, and his commentaries are always at least as entertaining and insightful as the feature itself.

But clocking in over the usual 90 minutes it do becomes boring at times.

Loved the action packed, frist forty minutes , loved the gory stuff , this next level and It was the funniest of them all.

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.

By doing things rather over the top and even dull it isn't an entry for every fan of Toxie.

Terrible mess that includes scenes of drug abuse, intense violence and sexual situations (all these things are just used for cheap shock value purposes).

Gross-out and throw-away gags are intermingled with unexpected whimsy and some very witty satire.

It has a clever and engrossing plot and a creative cast of charming characters, and is so completely packed with action, subtle (really!

It demands respect because Feldman's emotionally compelling performance sweeps you into Toxie's topsy-turvy (and delightfully dark) world, and it doesn't let up until the credits roll.

From start to finish the movie is so funny and enjoyable you probably wished that the second and third had been the same (although the second is still pretty good in my books).

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.

Highly enjoyable third sequel in the Toxic Avenger franchise.
