The Puppets return to tackle the Nazis in Axis of Evil
The Puppet Master series has been running strong since 1989. Throughout the series it has taken the storyline in all sorts of directions creating a chronological history that can be confusing. While Puppet Master: Axis of Evil is the ninth official film in the series, it actually is third in chronological order for the series itself. With varying stories and evolution to the characters, can Axis of Evil bring something new to the story and continue to evolve these beloved horror icons and a deliver another stepping stone for the future of these characters?
Puppet Master: Axis Rising follows Toulon as he takes shelter at the Bodega Bay Inn in California. When two soldiers are sent to kill him for his secrets, he hides the puppets away and commits suicide in hopes to have his secrets die with him. When an employee discovers his body and the puppets he begins to take care of them eventually discovering their secrets as well as that of the Gestapo's plans to bomb the United States. With the help of puppets he sets out to stop them before they can set their plan in motion. Featuring Blade, Pinhead, Jester, Tunneler, Six Shooter's arms, Shredder Khan, Gengie, and Ninja this latest entry expands on the opening sequence in the original Puppet Master, even using the same footage. There have been some various inconstancies throughout the series, but still always managed to bring it all together fairly well. This connection to the original seems to bring it back on track as though Band is trying to reconnect all those missing pieces in a more cohesive manner. This one takes a little bit longer to get to the fun, but the clear attempt to tell more of an origin story makes it work. This is an entertaining entry into the series, while the acting is not all that great. Over the years, the acting side of it has seemed to go down a bit, but is overshadowed by the sheer fun of the puppets in action.
