Can you believe David DeCouteau made a good movie? And he did it under the Full Moon banner? Strange as that may seem today (2012), in the not too distant past, this actually happened. In fact, part three is arguably the best film in the "Puppet Master" series -- which is saying a lot when you have eleven films (and growing). In fact, the only real complaint I have with it is the continuity, but that is a running theme with Puppet Master (we pretty much never have the same actor playing Toulon twice, for example).
I love the exposition here, the development of the origins of the dolls. I am unclear how Toulon went from being the good guy here to the bad guy we saw in earlier films... but, hey, it happens (Darth Vader, anyone?). This production is slick, the story is solid, the effects are good... I was a little bit surprised. I thought Aron Eisenberg did a terrible job pretending to be a naive child (as much as I loved him on "Deep Space 9"), but that can be excused.
