Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich is very loyal and respectful of the Puppet Master franchise but does things better and differently. It reinvents itself in every way possible while upholding most of the mythos. Something needed to be done because this series was going nowhere interesting. This new addition doesn’t conflict with previous films and feels like both a sequel and a remake.
Continuity is maximized and there are no plot holes, except perhaps Andre Toulon’s arc, which doesn’t make a lot of sense. The whole Nazi versus Jewish element is kind of heavy, but it’s been hindering these movies since the beginning and it must exist. The Littlest Reich has, by far, the best puppetry we’ve seen. The actors are excellent, no matter how significant their part is.
This mostly takes place in a hotel. It is where it all started, after all, and Puppet Master purists will appreciate it. The best thing about this movie is that the puppets are evil, so expect a slasher and a significant body count. There are boobs and there is sex, in case you wondered. The creators left nothing to chance. In fact, this may very well be the best Puppet Master movie to date.
