    An excellent film with outstanding acting

    This film keeps me on the edge of my seat every time I watch it. As others will say, totally unrealistic, but still great. Great bunch of actors including Andrew Divoff, Louis Gossett Jr., Wil Wheaton, and Sean Astin pre-hobbit status. The first time I saw 'the death', I have to admit I cried. Toy Soldiers is great to watch every once in a while, a real nice edition to your collection. Just the right amount of suspense, comedy, and action. Totally reccommended.

    A bit unrealistic

    This movie was entertaining but certainly not very realistic. I liked how the students used their intelligence but it's hard to imagine how in real life they could win out against real terrorists with machine guns. If you like seeing teenage boys stand around in their underwear (boxers and briefs) discussing strategy, this is for you. For all you 'Start Trek Next Generation' fans, Wil Wheaton is in this flick.

    Good Story/Great Acting

    This is a good film for teens, featuring a group of talented young actors. Sean Astin (Billy Tepper) and Wil Wheaton (Joey Trotta) are superior as the main rebel and his sidekick. As usual, Louis Gossett, Jr. gives an intense performance as the dean of a boys' private school taken over in a terrorist attack. Tons of foul language (yes, boys will be boys, but c'mon) and fairly graphic violence may offend some viewers, but underneath these trappings is a tale of bravery in the face of the evil embodied by the terrorists, especially their leader (well-played by Andrew Divoff). A tragic death in the midst of all the boyish bravado serves as a poignant reminder of the fragility of life. Minor flaws include technologically improbable solutions and the military comes across as more inept than the kids, but these are balanced by excellent acting from both teen and adult performers. (Special kudos to Jerry Orbach for his uncredited performance as Joey's Mafia boss father.) Overall, a decent action flick with plenty of heart.

    Very Good

    This is a pretty good movie. Wil Wheaton is terrific in it. The movie has a very well written storyline, and is action-packed. I would recommend this to anyone who likes action movies.
