Small Soldiers is a family picture on the outside, and a mean, violent action picture on the inside... For smaller children, this could be a terrifying experience.

Has all the charm of the entirely animated Toy Story plus an audacity all of its own.

This smells like a script slapped together around a toy-product launch.

Though it starts promisingly, the picture ends as a standoff between the affection Dante and company bring to the project and its increasingly frenetic and tiresome emphasis on (the special effects).
