This is the third movie in the Killer Tomato series. It stars John Astin (Addams Family on TV) and Rick Rockwell (Who Wants To Marry A Millionaire).
This time Dr. Gangreen wants to take over the world by taking over the news media. Of course, his Killer Tomatoes fit into the plans too. Lance is the one who tries to stop him - with some help from Kennedi who is a Tomatologist. (Yep. She studies Tomatoes.)
The jokes are very silly. This is one of those movies you'll think is just dumb or great. It appears to have a bigger budget and stronger script than the original. Although the story might be more developed than the original, I'm not sure if I can say it's a better movie. The original's appeal was in it's very obvious low-budget. The original almost looks home-made. Here the presentation is better, but the script doesn't play out as well. This movie is easier to sit through than the second movie - Return of the Killer Tomatoes (which had most of the actors from the first movie plus George Clooney). Killer Tomatoes Strike Back is about equal to the next movie, Killer Tomatoes Eat France, if you decide you want to see more.
Professor Mortimer Gangreen (John Astin) is back. He evidently never watched "Pinky and the Brain "(1995 TV series). He has plans disguised as Jeronahew to take over the world by using bad television.
First he must get revenge, get retribution, and get even with previous opponents. Out to foil his plot, Dr. Kennedi Johnson (Crystal Carson) best know Tomatologist. She has a close encounter with a killer tomato and a shower curtain. Also the unwitting Police Detective Lance Boyle (Rick Rockwell) who does not quite believe in killer tomatoes until it is too late. Then there is the return of FT; whose side is he on this time?
Is John Astin becoming a better actor or just being himself? As usual full of puns and one liner's. Be prepared for the sequel.

A sequel that should have never been made was and it is terrible. This is so bad that it is hilarious. This movie fits right in between Godzila vs Mothra and Night of the Living Dead. For those of you unfamilar with the first movie, the evil Dr. Ganggreen is at it again trying to take over the world using "Killer Tomatoes". The same crew has to stop him again. This is a great movie at half the price. Buy it if you need a break from good movies.

Following the infamous Tomatoes Attacks movies, this one is a comedy like Top Secret and Airplane. Well saying, it tries to be, 'cause it's much inferior than that, the jokes are extremely stupid. Even so, it has some good gags, like the English-Tomatoe dictionary...
