Editorial Reviews

After foiling a plot to blow up an American arms plant, DANNY COOGAN and his girlfriend, BETH, quickly find that their troubles have just begun. One of Toulon's mysterious Puppets has been kidnapped by the Nazis, and under the wicked, watchful eye of the occultist COMMANDANT MOEBIUS, the Puppets' life-giving serum is synthesized to create a master race of unstoppable soldiers. Moebius plots to assassinate the highly-decorated GENERAL PORTER to deliver a crippling blow to the American war effort, but his experiments are not ready. A Nazi Scientist uses the serum to create their own superior race of NAZI PUPPETS in the form of BLITZKRIEG, WEREMACHT, BOMBSHELL and KAMIKAZE! Danny and Beth, teamed with craggy SERGEANT STONE and Toulon's Puppets, are no match for Moebius and his war machine. It is up to BLADE, PINHEAD, LEECH WOMAN and JESTER to revive their own secret weapon to stop the AXIS RISING! Director: Charles Band. Kip Canyon, Jean Louis O'Sullivan, Brad Potts, Scott King, Stephanie Sanditz star.

2.0 out of 5 stars Full Moon continues to disappoint October 16, 2012
"Puppet Master: Axis of Evil" had a lot of potential but some shoddy acting and minimal puppet action kept the film from really taking off. It was, in any case, better than the last couple of installments in this series, but it forewarned of possible misery in future installments. Unfortunately, this new episode in the PM series fulfilled this prophecy of doom by being one of the worst of the bunch.

The story had potential - Danny and Beth, with puppets, set out to find the source of the Nazi occupation in America and rescue Tunneler. In the process, they uncover a Nazi plot to create undying soldiers and, ultimately, a series of Nazi-inspired puppets. The problem is that this film never gets past this idea stage. The acting is far worse in this film than in the previous, with Danny and Beth being the worst offenders. For all their faults, the previous actors were loads better than these two, who have the screen chemistry of oil and water. The other characters are vapid and one-note, which you expect from a Full Moon picture, but with such poor acting they inspire little attention from the audience. The only character to charm me was the Sarg, who was just hammy and stereotypical enough to make him endearing. The puppet work is just as pointless as it was in the last film, with minimal screen time for the puppets and fights that start and end so abruptly that I thought I'd fallen asleep and missed whole scenes (turns out I didn't miss anything, it was just horrible editing). The Nazi puppets have loads of potential, as the movie poster suggests, but never come close to living up to it. I've seen better animation in a toddler wielding an action figure.

3.0 out of 5 stars "My fate is in your little hands now" October 21, 2014
Now with ten movies to its name (eleven, if you include the non-canonical crossover), the Puppet Master series crawls over most other American horror franchises for sheer number of installments, trailing few in quantity. This is quite a feat for a series that's never seen the inside of a movie theater, has been retired twice, and has seriously declined in quality during the past fourteen years. "Axis of Evil" here sees the series slowly regaining some of its lost style, earning a passable rating and making me hopeful that inevitable future sequels might be better still.

The story: following the events of the previous film, Puppet Master Danny (Kip Canyon, 1313: Bermuda Triangle) and his girlfriend Beth (Jean O'Sullivan, Party like the Queen of France) must reunite the separated Puppets and stop the plan of a nefarious Nazi commander (Scott King) to create an army of undead soldiers...or of deadly little Axis Puppets.

The previous film had plenty of things wrong with it, and while "Axis Rising" is far from perfect, it improves significantly via an influx of enthusiasm.

1.0 out of 5 stars Some sort of joke here! March 20, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I thought this might have some merit by the reviews and an outstanding DVD cover, however; the acting was terrible and the puppeteering was worse! For alleged adults to rave about this, there must be an inside joke I don't get. I didn't see anything resembling "scary"; just a excuse for some cheap T and A shots! Don't waste your time or money on this DVD.

If you are already a fan of the Puppet Master series, you know that these movies are pretty hit or miss. They can be really great (like the first and third ones in the series) or pretty rotten (like Puppet Master Vs. Demonic Toys). The tenth installment sits pretty firmly in the middle of the pack, which isn't terrible for any movie that is a tenth film in a series.

I really enjoyed the addition of the new set of villain puppets, especially Bombshell. I wish we could have seen more of them and learned what they were all capable of doing. One of the puppets named Weremacht looks cool, but it is never fully revealed what his special "power" is other than looking like a werewolf. I especially enjoyed seeing the puppets we are already familiar with engaging in combat with the new villain puppets. Leech Woman and Bombshell getting into a cat fight was quite humorous.

As one would expect with a movie in the Puppet Master series, the best parts of the movies involved the puppets. Unfortunately they are probably only in a third of the movie (at least it felt that way watching it). When you did see them on camera, the puppets seemed to be mostly just observing the humans as they interacted with each other. They got into the action very infrequently, which hurt the movie.

The movie seemed to be trying to overly rely on the actors to deliver engaging performances that would distract you from the minimal puppet action. However, most of the actors and actresses were not impressive even by B-movie standards. The only performer that made any memorable impact was Stephanie Sanditz. She seemed to be enjoying herself on camera and embracing the innate campiness of being in a movie about killer puppets.

The movie's ending left open the possibility of an eleventh installment.

Garbage is what you should expect. I liked the first couple but this is unwatchable. To say the series has gone downhill would be an understatement.
