Surprisingly violentBy Jon Sandys from Woking, UK , 12 Aug 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]Not violent in a blood-spattered way, but if you're expecting something like Toy Story, be warned. The plot's fairly straightforward - over-engineered toys go on the rampage after getting military chips put into them.
I was expecting something a bit watered down and kid-friendly, but was pleasantly surprised - this is rated 12 but must have skated relatively close to a 15, especially towards the end when the 'good' toys and some people are trapped in a house by the war-mongering toys, being attacked by a variety of fairly lethal weaponry.
Acting and effects are up to scratch - nice to see the late great Phil Hartman in person, rather than just hearing his voice (he was a regular in the Simpsons until his untimely death in 1998). The traditional 'no-one believes the kid' plot is kept to a minimum too, which is always good.
Overall, definitely worth a watch, but it does get relatively intense towards the end (note 'relatively' - won't give adults nightmares, but some children might not be happy).

SMALL SOLDIERS GREAT CHILDREN'S ENTERTAINMENT.By Cornetto (959 reviews) from Lancaster , 21 May 2007In this film the toys come to life, aimed at the younger generation 'Small Soldiers' offers great entertainment. Special Effects are super and everything looks so realistic. Keeps the children happy.
A bit averageBy a customer from Leicester, England , 20 Feb 2007I did enjoy the film most of the time, a couple of times I found it dragged a little bit. I probably wouldn't allow younger children to watch this, perhaps from the age of 10 upwards may be more suitable.
