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. —Michael Silva <firstname.lastname@example.org>
This is a Science Fiction gem that isn't outstanding but has a great nostalgic feel to it
Dollman is currently available for free on Tubi and tells the tale of a space law enforcement agent who crashes on Earth and discovers a family who needs his help; unfortunately, the agent is only 13 inches high. The section of the city the agent lands in is over run by gangs and they terrorize families and civilians throughout the neighborhood. Can a 13 inch spaceman help solve the family's issues and find his way off Earth in the process? This movie is directed by Albert Pyun (Cyborg and Sword and the Scorcerer) and the storyline reminded me a little of Hobo with a Shotgun. The action scenes and violence is very well portrayed and while delivered in 1991 this has a strong 80s feel to it. The acting in this is better than you'd expect as the cast includes Tim Tomerson (Near Dark), Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen) and Kamal Lopez (Deep Cover). Overall, this is a Science Fiction gem that isn't outstanding but has a great nostalgic feel to it. I recommend giving it a shot. I'd score it a solid 6.5/10.
