The Reviews for 4D Man (1959) 720p

Decent story and special effects; weird soundtrackReviewed byhmnwilsonVote: 6/10

Watched this movie recently and overall it was better than I expected. The general storyline and acting was quite good and the special effects - e.g., walking through solids - were actually pretty decent. Robert Lansing and Lee Meriwether were pretty good especially considering this was their first film. The other actors were OK.

However there were a number of shortcomings and unintentional funny moments: 1) The soundtrack was totally over the top. Very 'hip' beatnik jazz orchestration with bongos etc. This cartoonish music often played during some of the tenser moments of the film, effectively ruining the suspense. 2) The sibling rivalry subplot at the beginning of the movie was really unnecessary. It was probably added to heighten the drama and give the characters more depth, but in the end it was all rather pointless. 3) The funniest moment of the film occurred when 'Tony' was working on his fourth dimension theory at the restaurant table. When the camera showed his notebook, instead of mathematical calculations or a scientific diagram, it was simply a sketch of a block of metal with a pencil going through it. It was like something straight out of a Leslie Nielsen movie.

Overall, it is an OK movie and worth watching if you enjoy old sci-fi movies. It won't change your life, but you won't regret watching it either.

Surprisingly effective little sci-fi'erReviewed byfrankfobVote: 7/10

Producer Jack Harris and director Irvin Yeaworth were responsible for two of the more off-the-wall sci-fi flicks of the '50s, "The Blob" and this one (they also did "Dinosaurus," but that's a whole other story). Both films appear to have been made around the same time, in 1957; while "The Blob" was released then, this picture, for some reason, wasn't put on the market until two years later. Actually, all things considered, I think it's a better film than "The Blob," although "The Blob" is actually more fun to watch. Lead actor Robert Lansing would at first glance seem to be an odd choice to star in a sci-fi movie; he was one of the more intense actors of his period, and you wouldn't think that his somewhat gruff demeanor and rugged, craggy looks would be the qualities you'd expect to find in an actor playing the lead in a sci-fi film; those parts were usually played by men who were more conventionally better looking than Lansing--and, frankly, younger. However, Harris and/or Yeaworth knew what they were doing when they cast him, as he fits this part to a tee; the coiled intensity he brought to all his roles really works here. His character is a basically good guy who lashes out when he discovers he's been betrayed (his ne'er-do-well brother steals his girlfriend) and in the process comes up with a scientific discovery that allows him to pass through solid matter. He also discovers that the side effects of this condition necessitate his draining the "energy" from others in order for him to survive. It's intriguing to watch Lansing's transformation from a decent if somewhat grouchy man to a homicidal, power-crazed "mutant"; where a sci-fi standby like John Agar would have either underplayed it or gone over the top, Lansing manages to strike just the right note, and really makes you pity, if not empathize with, the creature he's become.

Female lead Lee Merriwether has always been, in my opinion anyway, much underrated as an actress, being judged more for her status as a former Miss America than for her talent. However, she had a relaxed, naturalistic quality that many actresses with far more training and experience lacked, and I think it adds to the believability of the picture.

"The 4D Man" is no masterpiece, of course, but it's definitely one of the more intriguing, and thoughtful, sci-fi epics of the '50s. An interesting premise, very good special effects--considering the relatively low budget--solid performances and a much more adult tone than the usual '50s sci-fi flick make this a keeper. Check it out.

Intriguing Premise Indifferently ExecutedReviewed byBob-45Vote: 6/10

Nuclear scientist, whom has developed a virtually impenetrable metal is visited by his "black sheep" kid brother, also a scientist. The kid brother has developed a device which, when strongly enough energized, can enable the atoms of dissimilar materials pass through each other. The kid brother steals the older scientists girl friend, so the older scientists steals and tests the kid brother's invention. While attempting to make two inanimate objects pass through each other, the older scientist is "contaminated" by the field and finds himself capable of moving through solid objects. The price? When the scientist passes through a solid object, he ages years in a matter of moments. However, soon, the scientist discovers he can renew his youth, by stealing the "life force" of others.

An intriguing premise botched by a low budget, inappropriate music and obvious blue-screen special effects. The film does have a brilliant, complex performance by lead Robert Lansing. His transformation from staid hero to villian as he is seduced by the power provided by being able to walk though walls is a truly fascinating film experience. However, to have us believe a device which looks like an electric motor with a stainless steel plate attached could absorb enough power from a nuclear generator that it could generate a time travel field is so far-fetched as to be laughable.

Besides Lansing's performance, the best thing about the movie is the realistic aging makeup.
