Boring Rehash
5 November 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Puppet Master 5 is nothing more than a boring rehash of the previous film, featuring the same demon from underworld (looking like a power rangers cast-off bad guy) sending a Giger-inspired (read: Alien rip-off)critter to Bogeda Hotel to kill people. Dull and overly long, I really wonder why parts 4 and 5 were filmed back-to-back- there's not enough plot, or variation or direction for 2 movies. It's a mystery to me.

There are unintentional moments of hilarity though. Lauren, who spends most of the film comatose, seems to be there only to convulse and occasionally jump out of her bed screaming. Great characterisation (!) It's unfortunate because the initial set up- Rick Myers looks very guilty of murder, Dr. Jennings, a scientist being corrupted by a big organisation to find the the secret of the puppets, could potentially have led to an intriguing film, instead of the uninspired ' people wandering around a dark hotel and getting killed' number.

Yes it's a formula that worked in the earlier puppet master films, but the characters had actual character, and weren't just cardboard cut-outs. As campy and hammy as they may have been, you felt for them. If I ever have a puppet master marathon, I can quite easily say I'll skip both 4 and 5- they really are the least inspired of the series so far.
