The good guys are bad, and the presumed bad guys are good in this action movie that is suited for teens and above. The action gets a little violent in places but it is merely to make a point that soldiers fight. Small Soldiers is set in a quiet subdivision. They are created by a toy company to be totally interactive and exciting, but the distributor does not know that highly confidential military technology has been implanted into these dolls. The Gorgonites are monsters who are actually calm and peaceful. They are being stalked and slated for destruction by the soldiers who have been given the same technology. The teenager who has received these toys was more impressed with the Gorgonites; especially when he discovered that they were sentient beings that were capable of understanding and conversation. Between the attempts to protect the Gorgonites from the destructive and militaristic soldiers, the teenage boy, along with a pretty girl from down the street, continue to fight against the onslaught as they do everything they can to protect their friends from total annihilation. The teen's home becomes a battlefield with tiny rockets and cannons shredding the walls, curtains, windows, and anything that the soldiers can blow up. The Gorgonites, however, do not wish to fight. They do not see the point in it and believe that they are more harmful than they are good. The teenagers do not agree and continue to fight, even including the boy's parents before it is all said and done. This movie is rated PG-13 for violence, menacing action, and innuendos regarding drug usage.
