It starts as a dystopian science-fiction and transplants its world on earth early on. It’s about a gunslinger a foot tall whose credibility lies in the photorealism of his environment. Charles Band’s productions aren't exactly subtle, and Dollman is no exception. The contrast between real and fake size is an issue. Full Moon Entertainment is aware but thinks creativity matters most.
The sets are organic, rich, and sometimes overdriven by over-the-top effects that the budget can’t afford under Hollywood standards. Interestingly, the movie seems like it’s fresh out of the mind of a child wishing his stick figure came alive. While this film belongs to horror realm, it can be highly appealing to a young audience and fairly accessible.
It’s not straight terror and it’s not just science-fiction either. It has different influences at different times and pulls it off. The concept of miniaturization is one rarely tackled in film, because of the visual trickery it implies. The actors seem to be struggling with it as much as the production design department. This one must have been easier to write than direct!
