So, before us the horror of Sonny Laguna and Tommy Viklunda Puppeteer: The Smallest Reich. Why am I writing a Puppeteer, not the Lord of the Puppets? Yes, because it is not the Lord of the dolls no. I’ll run a little ahead – but there is nothing from the Doll Master, only the name of Toulon, and a couple of familiar dolls (but there are a lot of new ones). Is it good or bad? Let’s see.
The plot revolves around Edgar, who draws and sells comics. One day he finds a battered doll in his brotherÂs things (hello, Blade, I donÂt like you here). Edgar eventually learns that soon there will be an event about the 30th anniversary of the murder of Toulon (note, murder) and the doll can be sold at auction. In the hotel come the same people who dragged their dolls for sale, when the dolls come to life and the massacre begins.
Let’s be honest – before us its not enough that its not the Lord of the Dolls, its just a broken treshatinka. The real one, although I always avoided this word in reviews. Heroes come to the hotel – and that’s it, the plot stops for a good 30-40 minutes! Begins a selection of scenes from the massacre, not related to the plot is absolutely nothing. By the way, I want to say that the slaughter turned out to be, if not very tough, then harsh exactly – in the frame of the intestine, ribs, a bunch of cut sips with all the details and many other goodies.
Why is the film repulsed? Yes, because you look at the behavior of the characters – they specifically climb into the clutches of the dolls. There was no such thing in the original series, everything was on serious things. Here, the Jewish hero throws a doll with the face of Hitler with an evil grin into the oven. And the cast? Guys, here is Michael Pare, here is Matthias Hughes, here is Udo Cyrus, an Asian from House after all! Well, kill me, I don’t think this film was intended to be serious. Have you seen the battle in the final? And the scene after the credits? What seriousness can we talk about? Everything is so stupid that it turns into a cool bloody attraction for the evening, since the film maintains dynamism and the action does not sag in it, and all seriousness ends at the 20th minute already.
But let’s go to the minuses – I still think that it was impossible to write Puppet Master on this. Well, not the Overlord is not a remake and no point. I understand that the film would be interested in a smaller number of viewers, but I would get better marks. I perfectly understand the supporters of the classic Pappet, which is from Full Moon, and not from these guys. Yes, I also did not like the parasitism on the name of Toulon. Modified dolls look at times worse. Not enough of the usual Blade, and the new dolls, along with the old look very ridiculous.
I wrote in the review on ÂDestruction of the axis that the Band in vain ended up with a mediocre comedy, it was necessary to save all madness for a separate part, and ÂThe axis of evil to finish normally. So this very crazy part could well be this picture, why not. Few amendments to the script, old dolls instead of new ones, completely new ones to remove altogether, suicide to leave suicide, well, and stop exposing Toulon and his dolls to the Nazis. What would be cool. After all, the dolls in the first films were exactly negative characters, this later they went over to the side of good. There would be such a peculiar part of the franchise – everyone is better than Bendovsky nonsense about magic fingers and chicken legs.
But did not grow together. New directors really present us with an updated design of old dolls, introduce new ones and make from Toulon absolutely no one understand who. I do not like such remakes, yes. I had a bomb from Freddie in 2010 when I found out that he was a pedophile. Well, here Toulon Nazi. Not a deal, folks, not at all. We had to make a separate film without Toulon dolls, leave only new ones, or shoot according to the canon, so that Toulon still committed suicide, the dolls were evil, but not Nazis. Too many have changed, and this is not the case.
To summarize: the film made a double impression. I really did not like that it was released under the name Puppet Master. No it is not “Lord of the Dolls” never. On the other hand, I liked the movie because it is a stupid meat attraction, and I missed it. I would even give him a figure-eight, be it a separate horror movie, but for having added so much nonsense, you will have to lower the points.
