Your toys coming to life when you weren't looking is pretty much the suspicious prediction of most children. That little glint in their eyes caused you to look twice and made you so sure that they were having stealthy excursions the minute your back was turned. But imagine if your toys were military men, and they actually did come to life, but with one agenda: death and destruction.

Well, that was exactly the case in this 1998 animated movie, Small Soldiers. When 15-year-old Alan Abernathy gets his hands on a bunch of defective armed muscle-men, The Commando Elite, whose hell bent mission is to completely destroy The Gorgonites and anyone who stands in their way, he finds himself trapped in the midst of a plastic warzone and must protect the family home from destruction.
