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.

Bottom-of-the-barrel cheese fest from Full Moon
27 June 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Pretty much bottom of the barrel stuff from Full Moon Entertainment, a company not especially renowned for making good films. The low budget is apparent here. The film also sounds a lot better than it actually is. To be honest, that 'acclaimed' TV series from the '60s, LAND OF THE GIANTS, was a hell of a lot more fun than this. The film should have concentrated on Bardo facing perils, a lot more perils than the mouse he faces in one short scene.

It could have been a wacky variation on THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING MAN but unfortunately it's just boring; after the plot is set up nothing happens for about an hour, apart from people shooting each other occasionally and even that's not exciting. However there are a few choice bits of unintentional comedy on offer: this is the only film in which the stunt double is an action man! The humour - and there's a lot of it - consistently falls flat.

The acting is non-existent, apart from Tim Thomerson who remains bland but is not particularly bad. Obviously his experience (he's been in a lot of films like this, god help him) has helped shape him. To keep you interested (this is the plus side) there are some special effects which are interesting, such as the exploding people when Bardo shoots them with his powerful gun. There's a lot to laugh at but unfortunately not a lot to keep you interested. Watch only if you're desperate.
