Puppet Master: Axis of Evil
release year: 2010
viewing setting: home DVD, 7/9/13
synopsis: In World War II California, a young kid inherits the puppets and uses them against German and Japanese spies.
impressions: This was much easier to watch than some of the past installments in the series. It had a solid plot, strong characters with believable motivations, good acting, and nicely-done period costumes. It also introduced the ninja puppet. Of note: it ends on a cliffhanger, as it's really only the first part of a two-movie story arc (the next movie is Puppet Master: Axis Rising.)
body count: 7
acting: Everyone actually did a realy good job - they all acted like they were back n the early 1940s. The main hero guy kind of looked like the skinny Chris Evans from Captain America.
final word: One of the most entertaining (and coherent) movies in this series.
