Product Description

Here's the pitch: "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, U.S.A., 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. Plenty of violence, er, 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

I can't believe they're re-releasing this on dvd. I saw this when I was 7, and it was the coolest movie I had ever seen. Maybe other people might find it a bit corny, but I'd say that most kids would enjoy it. There's no blood of course, and nobody in the movie dies(save for all the little plastic soldiers).

All in all, this is literally in my top 5 faves, and I'd recommend it to anyone.

For pure entertainment value and eye-candy alone, I really enjoyed this film. The acting was good, even though the plot was full of holes and the script had some extremely cheesy lines. It was good to see Phil Hartman on screen, but his talent was wasted in this flick - his character was a minor one and he didn't get many lines.
The premise: a military defense contractor expands its boundaries by buying up a successful toy company, hoping to put surplus chips to use by remarketing them as toys.
Two races of action figures - soldiers (human) and Gorgonites (totally dissimilar to each other, from the planet Gorgon, both are programmed to be mortal enemies. The soldiers are programmed to win, the Gorgonites are programmed to either hide or lose.
Apparently no testing takes place before they hit the shelves and the soldiers are ruthless, ripping the Gorgonites limb from limb.
They decide that children who play with Gorgonites must also be destroyed, as they are perceived as being collaborators with the enemy. Needless to say, this is entertainmen for grownups, not for little ones.
The chips that are used in them give them artificial intelligence - the ability to learn and to create new weapons using anything they find. Almost like "Universal Soldier" along with the passion and emotion.
Archer, protector of the Gorgonites, is the true heartwarming character of the film. He is homesick for Gorgon, and even though the planet only exists in the mind of the toymakers that marketed him, he longs to be home.
Alan, a boy trying to re-earn the trust from his parents, has a hard time proving that toys are the ones wreaking havoc until they are caught in the act.

This is a great movie for the family to watch. It has action that would be enjoyable for all ages. Those who love 80's machine movies will love "Small Soldiers". The writers thought of a unique storyline that makes it more entertaining and bring hopes for the loners. The beginning accurately desplicts how the toy industry is being treated today.
Gregory Smith(TV's "Everwood"), who plays Alan, wonderfully performs his role as a loner who finds toys in a truck. Alan sneaks them home. Little does he know that the toys are alive. He meets a girl at the toy shop, played by the fabulous Kirsten Dunst. The chemistry between the characters give the movie that added spark. The characters' secret about the toys helps build the storyline, readying the war eruption. The two actors prove that "Small Soldiers" is little about toys who fight; rather, it's about the importance of breaking out of one's shell.
The special effects team made the alive toys more entertaining to watch. Those who provided their voices gave it the added humor, especially the female dolls. Computer animation wonderfully combined them and the real-life people. This was especially crucial in the war scene because of the weapons used.
Though no child would ever fight a war in real life, "Small Soldiers" will never leave their audience disappointed. Note the two rising stars.

This movie got a bit of a bad rap when it came out, because people were expecting another "Toy Story", which is great in it's own way, but far from the spirit of this picture. In this story, the toys not only can die, but they can kill. It shows what would happen if supercomputers the size of a doll's head were placed used as the "brain", and then they were programmed to kill other toys. If humans get in the way, well, I believe the term is "collateral damage".
Surrounded by this story are a lot of comments on corporate greed. Dennis Leary gives yet another (see "The Ref") terrific performance with his no-nonsense look at the world. In this one he's the CEO of a conglomerate who wants to make toys that actually do what the commercials lead on to. With an unlimited budget and a tight deadline, the results are not quite what people hoped for.
You see, there are two sets of toys: one is a peace-loving set of oddballs, and the other is a group of soldiers. Even though the oddballs are intellectually interesting, they are merely cannon fodder, as the soldiers are programmed to kill them. Since this is what the toy-buying populace will want, that's what the company gives them. It goes a bit off-kilter when the soldiers do their job way too well. The special effects that show this are state-of-the-art for their time, and still hold well today. There is humor all around, both for kids and adults. When the soldiers discover a group of Barbie dolls, and one observes with a leer that they're bendable, mom and dad get the joke while still keeping it OK for kid viewing.
Now I know a little bit about programming, and the movie does take a few liberties with what computers can do in the spirit of advancing the plot.
