Story and direction both fail to catch and hold interest. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- The standard plot now looks hackneyed, and the cueball-headed Dekker is stereotypically crazy. However, the impressive array of oversize props make this a lot of fun to watch. Full Review
Dr. Cyclops is the best bad picture of the year, an epic of silliness, and, more than that, a triumph of the process screen and the department of trick effects all combined very tastefully with Technicolor. Full Review
New York Times
Rating: B+ -- Albert Dekker is marvelous as the eccentric biologist. Full Review
Ozus' World Movie Reviews
An engaging fantasy with brilliantly executed (though mostly rather unimaginative) special effects which look back to The Devil Doll and forward to The Incredible Shrinking Man. Full Review
A mad scientist shrinks a team of explorers in this technicolor fantasy known for its groundbreaking special effects. Academy Award Nominations: Best Special Effects.
A sci-fi/horror classic about a mad scientist who invents a radium machine that enables him to shrink animals and humans. A group of engineers and biologists are captured and reduced to miniatures when they stumble upon Dr. Cyclops' secret laboratory in South America. Afterwards, danger looms large for the tiny travelers as they escape through the jungle, the evil doctor in hot pursuit.
- Shot in three-strip Technicolor.
- Additional cast: Bill Wilkerson (Silent Indian) and Allen Fox (Cab Driver).
- Additional credit: Wallace Kelley (process photography).
- "Dr. Cyclops" made pioneering use of early Technicolor and process photography.
