Product Description

Comedic action thriller starring Sean Astin and Will Wheaton. When an entire boys' school is taken hostage by international terrorists it falls to a group of troublemakers led by Billy Tepper (Astin) to try and stop them. With the army surrounding their campus, will the ingenuity and cunning of the students be enough to break the stand-off? Also starring are Keith Coogan and Denholm Elliott.

Review

"If your teenage sons are looking for heroes, send them to 'Toy Soldiers'" --Washington Post

"Pardon the language, but I f**king love Toy Soldiers, I have since the very first time I saw it back in October 1991. Back then I thought no one was cooler than Sean Astin's authority-baiting bad-ass Billy Tepper, even if I did question why he and his mates liked to sit round in just their undies (something I still ponder about today)!" --Nerdly.co.uk --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

Toy Soldiers I saw when I was a teenager working at a video store (that's right, video not DVD!) I fell in love with it the first time I saw it, and in trying to replace all the old VHS I had to DVD's, I decided to buy Toy Soldiers. I'm so glad I did, it's still just as great as I remember...though the glasses and clothes of the characters make me smile.
The storyline with terrorists taking over the school could be a storyline from today...and of course it's always fun to cheer for the good guys!

When a group of terrorists attack a private boarding school, a bunch of friends named the rejects, bring it upon themselves to protect the school and the people being held hostage inside it. They daringly set up a plan to get information to the outside world, and the many police officers surrounding the school. Most of the featured charactors have important American parents making it a very more exciting storyline. This is a must see for everybody.

TOY SOLDIERS is the explosive story of a taskforce more dedicated to mayhem than maths! The film itself is about a private school for problem students - the sons of wealthy and influential American figures, the school is under siege by a drug baron and the plan is to storm the school and to take the rebellious students captive for money. Louis Gossett JR ( Iron Eagle 1986 ) stars along with Sean Astin. A great film one for all the family action packed from the start!!!!

when i was young(er) i used to get home late turn on the t.v. and watch lots of random films, most of which i don't remember for some reason or other, this timeslot usually reserved for the banal. but on one occassion this film came on, and it absolutely blew me away. now, probably the best part of twenty years later i finally own it on dvd, and thankfully it still holds up. quite often films and tv shows from ones younger days are a let down. this is not.
the plot is simple; a boarding school full of boys taken over by terrorists. but what really reels you in is a combo of three things. great acting, tension, and brutality.
all of the actors in this are top drawer, but louis gosset jr and will wheaton really shine. the bad guy, whose name i don't recall, is equally brilliant and menacing. the brutal beginning really ramps up the tension, and gives us a clue as to whats in store. the violence is well executed, and not over the top to devalue the film, but horrific enough to engage you. all too often in films they shy away from actually showing the gritty and have the violence implied. which numbs the viewer. this definitely is not the case here. as the boys rebel against their captors, you are drawn in and made to care about the various characters, their lives, and the outcome of their situation, which takes a nice interesting twist. one of the best films of its generation.

I first saw this movie when I was a teenager and I recently purchased it on a whim from Amazon. It has lost none of it's 80's glamour in the passing years. The actors look younger - some more so than others, the wardrobe is less than memorable and the plot line is predictable, but overall this movie still holds my attention from start to finish as a pleasing feel-good film about a group of kids no one ever thought would do any good.

I really enjoy this movie, and find the acting of a very high standard. I am a huge fan of Sean Astin and think he is awesome in this movie. Needless to say I have watched it several times, but as the video copy is getting past it needed it on DVD.
