It's a good flick with a decent amount of action. There's a bit of comedy, and some sume suspense. The acting is pretty good. I've seen the movie several times, and will watch again.

"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."

"This is one movie that absolutely deserves to be transfered to dvd. Why it hasn't yet, I don't understand! I remember when Toy Soldiers first came out, I must have seen it three or four times in the thearters alone. Then when it was released on vhs, I watched it another fifty or so, over the years. The film never got the recognition it deserved, and because of that, it kind of just fell to the waste side. In my opinion, this is one of the best films of the last decade. The story, acting, and fx were all excellent. The film is about a prep school for boys that gets taken over by terrorists. The Regis school is where the country's best families send the world's worst students. Although, the students are not really all that bad, they do get into trouble quite often. The films centers on one particular group of friends at the school. Sean Astin(("Rudy")as Billy Tepper) is the star of the film, but the other's do as good a job. Others in the group include Wil Wheaton(("Stand By Me")as Joey Trotta) and Keith Coogan(("Don't Tell Mom The Babysitters Dead")as Jonathan Bradberry). They are all on the school's scoccer team and also room together. The U.S. takes the head terrorist's father into custody and that's where everything begins. The terrorists, led by Luis Cali(Andrew Divoff(Fuast-Love Of The Dammed)), first take over the courthouse where the judge that put his father away is. They demand that the judge tell them where they took Luis's father and want him released immediately. But when the judge won't say anything, they force him into a chopper, take off from the courthouse roof, and toss him out. When Luis Cali learns that the judge's son is living at the Regis School, he figures they can use him as a trade off for his father. Not suspecting anything, but just to be safe, the FBI takes the judge's son out of the school and into protective custody. The boy's at the Regis School are in the middle of lunch in the cafateria, when Luis and his gang get there. They walk right in and shoot a round from a machine gun into the ceiling of the cafateria, causing all the boys to drop to the floor. They seal off all the enterances and exits, and wire the entire building with explosives. They have check points at all corners of the roof, two guys at each with sub-machine guns and rocket launchers. When Luis Cali learns that the judge's son has left the school, he has his people look through the school files to see who else he can use as a trade-off for his father. He decides that there are enough important families, who will cause problems for the government if they don't adhere to his demands, who have there kid at the Regis school. Billy and his friends agree that they have to do something to help the police and military that are now surrounding the school. They create a plan that will get Billy to the other side to tell everyone where each of the terrorists are positioned and what type of weapons they have. The plan works fine and everything seems to be working out, until one of the boys in their group is shot and killed. Billy decides that helping the authorities isn't the best idea because somebody else might get killed. But his friends tell him that he can't back out now, that everyone is counting on them to do what they said they would. So everything is back on, and the military, along with the help of Billy and co., set out to bring the terrorists down. I almost forgot to mention Louis Gossett Jr, who plays Dean Parker in the film. He, as everyone else, does a fantastic job. I don't want to go into anymore detail because you have to see this movie for yourself. There isn't a boring or slow part in any of the film. You definitely won't be disappointed with this one. Buy it while you can, since there doesn't seem to be any signs that this is comming to dvd anytime soon. NEVER FORGET 9/11/01!!!!!!"

"Just FYI, the movie format is listed as both widescreen and fullscreen/pan and scan, making it seem that this contains both versions. It is infact fullscreen only and has a lack of any additional bonus features. Still a great flick, but if you're looking for the niceities, you might want to wait for better version to be released."
