Irvin S. Yeaworth Jr. made this between the classic “The Blob” and the just plain goofy “Dinosaurus!”. While “4D Man” is nowhere near the greatness of “The Blob”, its a pretty enjoyable little sci-fi flick in its own. Also, unlike many of the other drive-in sci-fi films of the time period, it seems to be interested in telling a much more mature and adult story. There’s parts that even remind me of “The Incredible Shrinking Man” in their somber mood and tone. The film is a nice balance between an engrossing story and the more campy and outdated elements a lot of genre fans look for. At the center of this all is a fantastic lead performance by Robert Lansing. Even when his character is supposedly a monster, Lansing makes him sympathetic throughout. Also, the special effects were very good for their time.The film is far from perfect however. There’s a big band score that sounds far better suited for a “Dragnet” episode than this film. Its constantly blaring on the soundtrack, and detracts a lot of potential creepiness the scenes could have had. A moog or therimin score, like what was featured in many sci-fi films from the period, would have been much more effective. Still, the good outweighs the bad here, and while this isn’t exactly a 50s cult classic, its commended to drive-in fans. (6/10)
