Audience Reviews for Dollman

There is something about this B-movie that I like, its hard to pinpoint as the film is so ridiculous and belongs in a cartoon realm, I guess its the quaint 'Twilight Zone' charm of the plot and the cheesy yet fun effects mixed with some great hammy acting.

Pyun regular Thomerson gives his best 'Dirty Harry' performance here as 'Brick Bardo' (great name) complete with silly shades and a long trench coat. His strong gritty voice barking out silly dialog left right n centre to the wonderfully cliched baddies and gang members lead by a young over acting J.E. Haley.

This film does seem to have a cult following (nowadays, upon release not so much) and its easy to see why as its highly enjoyable with its highly nonsensical premise. A classic lead character, terrific bad guys and brilliantly hokey effects. Pyun's best film along side 'Cyborg' most definitely, which I'm sure came as a shock to him.

What starts off as a cheap sci-fi turns into all out comedy. Dollman is the story of a renegade police man from another planet. He crash lands on earth only to discover that in comparison to humans, he is 13inches tall. The film mixes the comedy and action well on it's low budget. Jackie Earle Haley is rather good in his role, but it's easy to see why he took a 13 year break from acting. One of the best twists comes when Haley squashes Dollman's arch nemesis with his hand. The floating head had been built up as the main bad guy but his demise was understandable and necessary. It was amusing to see a hardboiled detective be turned into such an nonthreatening force. It's cheap and cheerful fun, with a sense of humour.

A cool B-movie. Tom Thomerson was a cool character as "Dollman", who makes the movie greater. The alien planet was a great beginning. The setting was limited when crashed on Earth in the gravel-pit and tenements of the Bronx; I wish more of New York was explored. There are some fun sequences when Dollman is fighting the drug gang. The miniature-size effects were not used often enough; and relied too much instead on low-budget editing effects. A Full Moon classic!
