Product Description

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.

I remember seeing TV spots for Toy Soldiers in October 1991. I had recently seen The Goonies and I was surprised at how much Sean Astin had matured since then. It made me wonder how I would look once I stopped being a child. I didn't actually see the film until now (the 15 certificate meant I could not see it at the cinema and I just never got around to renting it later) but I seem to associate it first with that particular memory.

I was expecting it to be an action comedy, something along the lines of Home Alone meets Die Hard. How wrong I was. Toy Soldiers is surprisingly grim and serious. Directed and co-written by Beverly Hills Cop creator Daniel Petrie Jnr the film features a lot of well shot and staged action. The opening scene in particular has a memorable freefall stunt and there are innumerable blood squibs aplenty (a dying art in an age of awful CGI blood effects).

Billy Tepper and his gang of misfit Rejects draw the ire of Dean Parker at their prestigious boarding school, but he refuses to expel any of them as he sees their potential and wants to make real men of them. One of the kids is taken away by the FBI for protection when a terrorist group attempts to put pressure on his dad. Said terrorists promptly take over the school and are dismayed that their target has vanished. Instead they make do with the crop of students that they have and begin making demands. Billy and his gang do not take well to this plot and plan to strike back using whatever limited resources they have at their disposal.

It's here that Toy Soldiers sort of disappoints me. Instead of taking place in a concise time-frame it drags on for a few days and nights and features low-octane plotting for the most part.

Great movie, as I remember it. Altough I always hope for English subs, even when I order the movies from USA, sometimes one got to keep the volume down for sleeping kids, and then it's hard to hear what they are saying. And sometimes the volume during the action parts are so much louder than the talking parts, also a place where u have to adjust the volume, and might miss what they are talking about. :/ That draws down my score from 5 to 4, subs are always good to have the option to use. ;)

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. R2 15cert DVD, 1991, widescreen, no black bars.
The picture quality is fantastic, sharp, bright & full of colour.
Action and friendship are the order of the day in this slick movie.
Quite violent but not over the top, the 'bad guys' are excellent,
the hobbit and the spaceman ain't bad neither.
Extras: sweet FA. Run time: 1hr 47min 20secs.

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.

Made in 1991 and starring Sean Astin of ‘The Goonies’ fame this is about a nasty Colombian drugs lord who gets himself extradited to the United States to serve a lengthy prison sentence. His son decides he will get his father back to nose candy heaven and so attacks the prep school where the son of the judge – who sentenced his father – is boarding. This is to use the hostage to gain daddy’s freedom.

When he gets there with a small army all hell breaks loose. The boys though decide they are not going to take it lying down and organise a fight back. Now this is not a feel good movie with good winning with a smile on its face. There are some pretty nasty scenes here of violence and some full on action. There is no CGI either and you can tell that a lot of cash was thrown at this and mostly to good effect.

There are also some noteworthy support stars here in the shapes of Louis Gossett Jnr and the legendary Denholm Elliott. Some of the outcomes are predictable but despite that this film has stood the test of time reasonably well and is still a very good watch indeed.
