From Amazon.co.uk

Here's the pitch for Small Soldiers: "It's like Toy Story but these toys that come to life really kick butt!" That's essentially it for this breezy popcorn flick. In a very smart first 10 minutes, new toy-company owner Denis Leary tells his crew he wants toys "that play back". Hence the small soldiers land in Anytown, USA and the loner kid Alan (Gregory Smith) opens them up before they are supposed to be on the shelves. Those military-grade chips sure make them smart and give the toys plenty of pithy retorts to boot. There's plenty of violence and action, most of it fun enough. The vocal talents, including Tommy Lee Jones, Frank Langella and cast members of The Dirty Dozen are inspired characters, the humans less so. With Gremlins director Joe Dante at the helm, it plays like a sequel to that 80s fantasy. Amazing visual effects, of course. --Doug Thomas, Amazon.com

You'll understand the title from watching the movie (I hope)!

At first I wasn't really geared up to watch this movie, my 10 year old daughter wanted to see it and, well, as dad's do, I didn't want to disappoint her, so we hired it.

...and I loved it!

It's a very clever movie with a strong cast (check out the end credits for the whole list), all of whom put in believable performances for their roles (even Denis Leary was top notch as the tough, morally bankrupt boss, which surprised me as I'd only seen him do stand-up previously).

The story revolves around 2 sets of action toys which become 'alive', with one set (the Commando Elite) being the ruthless, sworn enemy of the other (the Gorganites) the kind-hearted peacable ones. Both of whom were manufactured by the same company that inadvertantly implanted them with the same advanced but unpredictable miltary-grade A.I. chips.

The script is fast-paced and well written, plenty of humour throughout, the plot is well conceived and delivered, there aren't really any holes in it you could point to, even for such a far-fetched story as this where all the Gorgonites want to do is go home! (Remind you of another movie?). The Gorgonites for their part, who've never seen their home believe, 'just because you can't see it, doesn't mean it's not there'.

I've seen this movie compared to Toy Story, but don't do it. They are 2 very different films; Toy Story is a feature length (very well animated) cartoon for kids/family, Small Soldiers is a feature length film with very good special effects that older kids to adults will get the most from watching. This is because there are many jokes requiring a broader knowledge base to fully appreciate. Younger children will enjoy this film too, but more for the action/animation.

Add this to your collection, you'll be glad to dust it off and re-watch it from time to time. It's prefect for rainy day escapism!

This is a good fun family film, the animations are clever and most importantly, the kids enjoy it. It keeps them watching and there are some genuine funnies which make them laugh out loud. Blasting your enemies with Spice Girls songs is a great idea. Excellent.

SMALL SOLDIERS [1998] [Blu-ray] [German Import] From Joe Dante Director of ‘GREMLINS’

When teenager Alan [Gregory Smith] buys a set of Commando Elite action figures, he's unaware that they have been programmed with military technology. The toys, including leader Chip [Tommy Lee Jones], spring to life and start taking their directives seriously, beginning by "killing" their enemies, the toy Gorgonites. But Archer [Frank Langella] and the Gorgonites won't go down without a fight. Alan gets caught in the middle of the war, as does his neighbour and crush, Christy [Kirsten Dunst].

FILM FACT: Bruce Dern, along with George Kennedy, Ernest Borgnine, Jim Brown and Clint Walker from The Dirty Dozen provided voices for the rest of the Commando Elite (Bruce Dern replaced another Dirty Dozen star Richard Jaeckel who died before shooting began). An uncredited Jim Cummings, along with Michael McKean, Harry Shearer and Christopher Guest from ‘This is Spinal Tap’ provided voices for the remaining Gorgonites. Sarah Michelle Gellar and Christina Ricci provided the voices for the transformed Gwendy dolls. Dick Miller, who was in the original ‘Piranha’ in 1978 (also directed by Joe Dante), also acted in this film.

When I first saw this film I thought it was good, though perhaps not brilliant. It was only when the end credits rolled and I was looking at the cast list that I read "The Gorgonites - Spinal Tap"! Yes, the Gorgonites are played by Christopher Guest, Michael McKean and Harry Shearer! Unfortunately this meant i had to run out and buy the film as I am a massive fan of Christopher Guest's work and have to have all his films. So there actually is a lot to offer older viewers who see this film if you know who is in the cast and can appreciate some of the in-jokes that would probably pass children by. Also, if you are a Phil Hartman fan this is worth having to round off your collection, as he died shortly after filming ended. I would say that this is worth seeing once no matter who you are and well worth buying if you can buy into the top cast and in jokes.
