Product Description

Product Description

In this carefully crafted suspense thriller, a group of problem students at an exclusive Northeastern prep school band together to wage a desperate and deadly campaign against terrorists who lay siege to their school in an effort to free a Colombian drug lord from an American prison.

Amazon.ca

Toy Soldiers is a slick dose of high-concept absurdity, and lots of fun if you don't think about it afterward. Adapted from a novel by William P. Kennedy, it's got the swift momentum that's a specialty of screenwriter David Koepp, whose later credits include Jurassic Park and Spider-Man. Matching Koepp's narrative energy is director and cowriter Daniel Petrie Jr., who wrote Beverly Hills Cop, and whose big-screen career stalled after this crowd-pleasing debut. The hokey plot involves a class of prep-school misfits (led by Sean Astin and Wil Wheaton) who use their rebellious ingenuity to foil Colombian terrorists who've taken over their school. The lead villain (Andrew Divoff) demands the return of his extradited drug-lord father (one of the prep students is the residing judge's son), and the inevitable showdown provides a heady mix of nonsense, graphic violence, and military muscle. It shouldn't work but it does, especially if you've got a tolerance for Die Hard clones that barely pass inspection. --Jeff Shannon

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.

This is absolutely the best film in history. Don't pay any attention to what the editorial reviewer said. It isn't nonsense at all. It was well constructed, well written, well thought out, and realistic. Sean Astin is an awesome actor. Did he get an Oscar for this? I hope he did because he deserved it as well as the rest of the cast, Keith Coogan, Wil Wheaton, and Louis Gassett. I remember watching this on tv years ago. I finally bought it on DVD at the mall. That was the only place I could find it. It was 20 bucks but well worth it. I bought it 3 days ago and I already watched it four times. It's intense, dramatic, sad, touching, thrilling, entertaining, funny, scary, unpredictable, and realistic. The reason why it was so realistic is because the military helped out in the making of this film. And in the movie nothing went perfect. I don't want to give it away for those who havent seen it. If you havent seen it you're really missing out. I highly recommend picking it up. It doesnt seem like it was made it 91. It's one of the best actions films ever made. It's intelligent and one of a kind. I don't think they have it for rent anymore. I hate when good movies aren't appreciated or remembered. It never got the recognition it deserved. This film is truly unforgettable and my movie collection is nothing without it.

OK, I'll be the first to admit that I have a soft spot in my heart for this flick. It is by no means a masterpiece, and it will never be confused with art, but it is one of those enjoyable, popcorn eating, junk flix that suck you in every time you flip past it on TBS. It is a guilty pleasure of mine that I rate up there with ROAD HOUSE, NEXT OF KIN, and VICTORY.
That being said, I was thrilled when I saw that this was available on DVD! Without reading the description carefully, I quickly ordered and anxiously awaited the delivery person, popcorn in hand. Caution should have been displayed, and perhaps the description should have been read by me.
Folks, this DVD is NOT IN WIDESCREEN. I have no one to blame but myself, because it is clearly listed as a full screen disc. But seriously... in this era of movie-friendliness, why oh why even bother with full screen releases anymore? Columbia/Tristar usually does an admirable job with their DVD packages, and for the most part provides a widescreen transfer. A lot of their discs offer both presentations, which is fine, but if you are going to choose one, full screen is the wrong way to go.
So my rant here folks is not at the seller, or the content. It is at the studio for not bothering to give us the original aspect ratio of this cool little movie. That is why it gets only two stars. In all honesty, with something like The Godfather getting five stars and a Finding Nemo getting four, you can't give this movie more than three. But it would have been a solid three in widescreen. Note to all studios... release your movies in their OAR. I doubt something like Toy Soldiers will ever get another release, so do it right the first time.

Toy Soldiers is one of my all time favorite movies. I have quite possibly seen this movie about 100 times.. Anytime it comes on TV i watch it, I own it on VHS, I saw three times in the theatre. Now I can finally own it on DVD.
The movie takes place in a Prep School for misfit boys. Sean Astin leads a motley crew of bad boys who try to save their school and their friends from a group of Columbian terrorists. He is joined by Will Wheaton and Keith Coogan as two of his friends and Louis Gossett Jr. as the schools headmaster. Astin and his friends come up with a masterful plan to create a landscape of diversions to allow Billy (Astin) to escape the grounds just long enough to deliver schematics of the guns, drawing of the terrorists and where they are placed. He must then make it back in time for roll call or his classmates will be killed. This sets in motion a series of events that gets one boy killed and sneds the rest of the group into warp speed to kick some terrorist a**. This movie was awesome. Great action and good suspense.. I am glad that I can finally get it on DVD.
