15-year-old Alan Abernathy, the son of a toy store owner, tries out some new action figures: The Commando Elite vs. The Gorgonites. But three months ago, a toy company believes it is onto something when it employs the latest government military technology in a series of action figures, enabling them to talk. They underestimate the power of the special micro chips they've employed, however, as the two opposing sides of the toy line start thinking for themselves and engaging in real combat! The Commando Elite vow to wipe out the Gorgonites in a suburban neighborhood. Alan, his neighbor Christy Fimple, (on whom he has a massive crush) with the help of the kind Gorgonites, must protect his home and family from the Commandos.
Here's the pitch: "It's like Toy Story but these toys that come to life really kick butt!" That's essentially it for this breezy popcorn flick. In a very smart first 10 minutes, new toy-company owner Denis Leary tells his crew he wants toys "that play back." Hence the small soldiers land in Anytown, U.S.A., and the loner kid Alan (Gregory Smith) opens them up before they are supposed to be on the shelves. Those military-grade chips sure make them smart and give the toys plenty of pithy retorts to boot. Plenty of violence, er, action, most of it fun enough. The vocal talents, including Tommy Lee Jones, Frank Langella, and cast members of The Dirty Dozen are inspired characters, the humans less so. With Gremlins director Joe Dante at the helm, it plays like a sequel to that '80s fantasy. Amazing visual effects, of course. --Doug Thomas

An inventor designs a highly complex computer-chip for military weapons. The military cancels the order for thousands of these computer-chips at the last minute, because the military discovers the chip may be disabled by a nearby explosion emitting a magnetic pulse, which all electrical explosions do.
A toy corporation wants a simple computer-chip to enable their small, action-figure, soldiers to move, walk, and talk. The toy-maker does not know he is buying surplus military weapons' chips, which are highly complex, and have an artificial intelligence, which allows the mini-processor within the toys to learn within their prime directive. The prime directive of the toy soldiers is to destroy the Gorgonnites, another line of action-figures, and their allies. The Gorgonnites' directive is to find their way back to the land of Gorgon.
Lots of action and creativity. If you liked "Gremlins"; you will like this.
A young Kirsten Dunst co-stars. Bonus-features, behind-the-scenes.
P.S. War what is it good for nothing, say it again War.....
It portrays war with toys but is fun to watch for adults who grew up with barbie dolls and gijoes.
Bought this movie for my husband and I to watch after getting rid of the VCR copy we had bought for our kids that we would not let them watch till they were older.
Loved the reality to with the toys.
Shipped on time and in good condition.
