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.

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally!!!! January 18, 2003
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS MOVIE SHOULD HAVE BEEN ON DVD YAERS AGO!!!!!!!! April 19, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
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. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST MOVIE EVER MADE!!! November 12, 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
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. This film is truly unforgettable and my movie collection is nothing without it.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT MOVIE!!!!! February 22, 2004
By Jimmy W
What can I say about this movie? Maybe the question should be, what can't I. I saw this movie for the first time two days ago, and now I rank it as one of my favorites. Come on...haven't we all had that same daydream of saving our school and friends from bad guys. least I have. This movie may not be a 'Thinking Person' movie. But sometimes, you need a movie that doesn't really require you to think. This one is definitely one of them. It is just a fun movie and I love it. I feel it was terribly underrated. The cast was excellent and Sean Astin did an excellent job and this only cemented his place as my favorite actor. If you want a movie that is a pleasure to watch. One that is great from start to finish...then this is your movie. Two thumbs up. Five Stars. A Classic.

4.0 out of 5 stars format information is incorrect June 13, 2006
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.
