sorry for the mistakes!
Return to Nuke 'Em High Volume 1
me take you back to where it all began" is what the narrator says at
the beginning of the movie. And forgive us if we interrupt this review,
but we must say that we do it too, we come back where it all started. It
was August 22, 2008 and we published our first review: "Poultrygeist
Night Of Chicken Dead" a movie by Troma, of course, set in the capital
of toxic wastes.
Then on these pages arrived a lot of trash, a lot of blood, a lot of boobs, technical changes that have brought us to this, the five hundredth review. Five hundred bad movies reviewed.
And to celebrate this goal we come back "where it all began," in the city that gave us birth, the beautiful, contaminated, dangerous, Tromaville.
Ok, we continue with the review and with Troma that puts his hand to one of his classics. It's not the first time (after the original, there were two sequels in 1991 and in 1994) and is not the last because shortly will be released the Volume II. Hey, waits a moment, a moment longer... Volume I and Volume II? Don't you remember a well known Tarantino's movies? Yes, and that's it, for the forty birthday of Troma, Kaufman and Hertz wanted to make a film event, in the same manner of their friend Quentin Tarantino, or at least with the same structure, because the two, naturally have a much smaller budget and a craziest idea.
"Return To Nuke 'Em High Volume 1" is in perfect Troma's style, but changes in a very smart way the concept of contamination, following the idea of the green world, because the nuclear power plants that are closing in some places of the world while the food has become the focal point of anyone's life.
So if the famous nuclear power plant near the school was demolished, in its place was built the factory of Tromorganic Foodstuffs, a food company owned by Lee Harvey Herzkauf, an unscrupulous businessman, played brilliantly and clownish by Lloyd Kaufman. With the support of the President of the United States (the always great Lemmy) the products of this contaminate the nearby school, creating the usual mutant monsters.
The nerds turned again in "Cretins" who create disorder in an already violent school. Chrissy and Lauren two beautiful lesbian girls are the heroines who have to fight the monsters and the Tromorganic and they are, progressives characters, heroines of the LGBT (oh well... in reality them represent only the sexy side of the movie)
Apart from the change of the trigger and after a sparkling start, "Return To Nuke 'Em High Volume 1" went too much in the wake of the first movie of the saga. So we see a same development, almost the same scenes and same shots. Inevitable that is a little boring and we aren't surprised much. But aside from that this Volume I is a funny movie, up to the great "Tromasterpieces" and with a young cast, amused and amusing, which in most cases seems to believe so much in this latest Troma's crap.
