Audience Reviews for Doc Savage---The Man of Bronze
I'm going to go ahead and start by saying that my rating of this reflects my enjoyment of this movie and not necessarily its quality. It's a real piece of crap, and I know that, but I enjoyed it anyway. The effects are bad, the acting is bad, the set pieces are bad... everything is just, well, bad. It doesn't matter though. I've been advised to read the original serial novels that this film was adapted from and I very well could someday, but I don't write this off as just a piece of trash and hate on it for what it is. I laughed quite a bit, saw the ironies of the thing and just flat out had a good time with it. It's no masterpiece, but it's candy-coated garbage cinema at its finest!
As a serious action hero movie, this sucks ass. As a stupid, camp, immature and ridiculous action hero movie, it's pretty darn funny.
Based on the novel The Man of Bronze by Kenneth Robeson (AKA Lester dent) Doc Savage is a fun adventurous movie but overly campy. To those of you who don't know who Doc Savage is, he's a famous pulp hero popular in the mid 30's and into the 40's. There were in total 181 Doc Savage stories written mostly all written by Lester Dent who by the pen name of Kenneth Robeson. On his adventures doc Savage was usually accompanied by The Fabulous Five, his buddies from World War I. There was Johnny the archaeologist, Monk the world famous chemist along with his pet pig Habeas Corpus, Ham the lawyer, Renny the engineer, and Long Tom the electrician. When Superman was first created the inspiration for the character was Doc Savage. Doc Savage was known as "The Man of Bronze" so Superman became "The Man Of Steel". Doc Savage had a Fortress of Solitude in the arctic so naturally Jerry Siegel & Joe Shuster felt Superman should have one. Bullets reflected off of Doc Savage and you can guess thats how Superman ability. He had a large penthouse on the 86th floor of the Empire State Building. All the actors in the film are perfectly cast for their roles. The effects in the film are awful even for then, considering the producer was a master at special effects. The green death looks really fake, I mean they're animated green snakes. The movie does feature music inspired John Phillip Sousa that gives it a very patriotic feel. One of the henchmen is seen in his adult sized crib in the movie, a scene I can't stand for a good reason. A rare bronze colored 1936 cord Model 810 Coupe is Doc's car used in the film. Overall it's an enjoyable movie if you can get past all of the campy aspects of the film.
