Storyline

Brick Bardo (Tim Thomerson) is a traveller from outer space who is forced to land on Earth. Though regular-sized on his home planet, he is doll-sized here on Earth, as are the enemy forces who have landed as well. While Brick enlists the help of an impoverished girl and her son, the bad guys enlist the help of a local gang. When word leaks out as to his location, all hell breaks loose. Brick is besieged by an onslaught of curious kids, angry gang members, and his own doll-sized enemies, and he must protect the family who has helped him and get off the planet alive.

Not to bad for what it's worth
3 August 2014 | by mr-delocatedSee all my reviews

Dollman is not the greatest movie, but it is also not the worst. It's cheesy, it has one-liners, and it's low-budget. The movie has obvious problems, but it has a certain quality that makes it watchable. Most of it's problems stem from bad acting to cheap effects. I found the movie with a pack of others, including The Gingerdead Man( Made by Full Moon, who made Dollman).The movie definitely stood out from the others, being the best of the other movies( which isn't saying much). Some sites consider the movie to be horror. I wouldn't consider the movie horror, it's more sci-fi/action. Best to watch this movie with a few friends. It can be a good, one time cheese-filled experience.
