A Fun-Sized Futuristic Dirty Harry-Meets Suburban Commando-Meets Honey I Shrunk the Kids Anyone? (by LostHighway101)
Only a director like Albert Pyun could handle material like this. The director of many B sci-fi/martial Arts projects the "Nemesis" series, "Cyborg" , a teen video game adventure, and a post-apocalyptic musical, Mr. Pyun loves to combine genre tropes into stimulating, unique experiences. Pyun asked what many B-filmmakers did in the Tarrantino administration: why bother with new material when it has all been done so well before?The 90s direct-to-video market thrived simultaneously with this era of genre hybrids; those movies that recycled old genre tropes, archetypes, and <more>
approaches into new material. In "Dollman" Pyun makes a tasty salad out of various conventions from "Dirty Harry", "Honey I shrunk the Kids", "Suburban Commando", "Time Cop", various gang films, and the action and sci-fi conventionality of its era.Tim Thomerson plays recurring Pyun character Brick Bardo who, in this incarnation, is a futuristic bad-cop who is inter-dimensionally displaced via space ship into the Bronx with his his WMD-packing floating head nemesis Armbruiser. During their trip, the two are shrunken into action figure proportions. After Bardo's spaceship is abducted by a young boy, he must struggle against various domestic terrors the family dog, a cockroach while Armbruiser shops his WMD to a dangerous local gang headed by the dangerous Braxton Red Jackie Earle Hayley in a hammy, vicious performance .Fortunately "Dollman" delivers in every way you want it to. The shrunken person tropes are satisfying and realized; the action scenes are intense; and its science fiction backbone is always present. Pyun juggles these elements well and has fun with the formulas at play. Although it suffers from Pyun's tendency toward awkward pacing, "Dollman" is one of his strongest and most controlled films.
You either love or hate this kind of movie (by pugdog#1)
And if you love them, and Tim Thomerson, you'll love this movie. The'sequel' Dollman vs the Demonic toys, is little more than tape together of the left overs of a half dozen other films and is quite funny in it's own right if you recognize this . But, Dollman is a heroic effort of a miniature intergalactic cop, with a very big gun. If you like these sort of movies, this is a definite "WATCH".
Tomerson best of the b list (by metalrox_2000)
While I was kinda surprised to see ex bad news bears star Jackie Early Harley as the villain, I found myself quite entertained by the story. Tim Tomerson has to be the best of the b action stars. Whether the good guy, like in Dollman and the Trancers series, or a villain in Nemesis, Tomerson has that relaxed cool aura about him that very few actors have. I saw this movie a few years ago late night on HBO, and mainly began watching it mainly because Thomerson was in it. Why this movie hasn't seen the light of day since is mind boggling, considering that slew of just awful movies that <more>
Sci-Fi channel shows. This is another must have for b movie fans, as is the Trancers series.
