      Alexander B It worked well despite its ridiculous premise. The special effects were limited by it's budget. However it still managed to be a very enjoyable film. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 04/22/23 Full Review David W You've got to love Tim Thomerson, he gives it his all whatever he's in. It's obviously got a budget that would be comparable to the catering budget for most movies and whilst it does show, it's still mighty inventive. The sci-fi plot doesn't bear too much close scrutiny but it's still very enjoyable, in a knowingly b-movie way, largely due to the effortlessly charismatic Thomerson. There are some interesting ideas in here, some creative use of the meagre effects budget and Thomerson gets some great lines. It'll happily pass the time if you're up for some retro sci-fi and in an undemanding mood. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/04/23 Full Review terry n Never even heard of Dollman. Saw at the dollar store and nabbed it. For the budget they worked with, it is entertaining. Bad graphics, mediocre acting, but tongue-in-cheek hilarious. The script and idea are great, this film simply needed a better budget. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Devin O Slightly dated but stupid fun. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 12/16/22 Full Review Audience Member I'm a sucker for the low budget direct-to-video movies from Charles Band's Full Moon Features, which brought us such cheesy classics as the "Puppet Master" "Subspecies, and "Oblivion" series of films. In this film, we have a hard-boiled space cop Brick Bardo, played by Tim Thomerson ("Trancers" "Cherry 2000" "Near Dark"), chasing down intergalactic criminal Jackie Earle Haley (Rorschach from "Watchmen" and Kelly Leak from "The Bad News Bears"). Jackie Earle ends up on earth, but there's a Gulliver's Travels type of twist and Brick finds he's the size of a Ken Doll on this planet of earth giants. The novelty of a tiny Dirty Harry tough talking giant humans goes a long ways and is pretty entertaining. The film was directed by Albert Pyun ("Cyborg" "Nemesis" "Dangerously Close"), who I've always love his penchant for setting his films in the ruins of old factories, which conveniently double as distant planets, post apocalyptic wastelands, or contemporary urban blight (quite cost effective, Albert!). Overall, like most Full Moon Features, it's hampered my a low budget, a corny script, and middling direction, but it has an infectious scrappiness and unpretentiousness that I find hard to resist. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review russell h Definitely better than most of the puppet master movies. Funnier too.

      Steve Simels Entertainment Weekly Unfortunately, while there's enough gross shoot-out stuff to mollify genre fans, the picture's miniature effects are mostly laughable. Dec 23, 2021 Full Review Alan Ng Film Threat What Dollman needed to succeed in its gimmick are more convincers. Rated: 5/10 Dec 23, 2021 Full Review Mike Massie Gone With The Twins Unexpectedly enjoyable - despite numerous technical faults and a sporadically detrimental shoestring budget. Rated: 7/10 Sep 11, 2020 Full Review Felix Vasquez Jr. Cinema Crazed Say what you want about this movie, but at least it excels in being creative, original, and gutsy...
