"Great, the school gets taken over by terrorists and I'm still on pots and pans."

It's an overused analogy, but 1991's Toy Soldiers is fundamentally an amalgam of Die Hard, The Goonies and Red Dawn, making kids and teenagers the heroes of an adult premise. By no means is this a groundbreaking or Oscar-worthy gem, but it is a terrific popcorn flick, delivering easy-going entertainmen... read more

Description: In Colombia, terrorist Luis Cali has taken over the Palace of Justice. Luis throws a woman off a balcony to her death and dumps a judge from a helicopter in order to make his point. Luis is angry because the US government has kidnapped his drug kingpin father Enrique Cali and transported Enrique to the USA to stand trial. The Regis School, in Virginia, is a boarding school where the wealthy dump their delinquent teenagers when they've been kicked out of everywhere else.

“"Great, the school gets taken over by terrorists and I'm still on pots and pans."

It's an overused analogy, but 1991's Toy Soldiers is fundamentally an amalgam of Die Hard, The Goonies and Red Dawn, making kids and teenagers the heroes of an adult premise. By no means is this a groundbreaking or Oscar-worthy gem, but it is a terrific popcorn flick, delivering easy-going entertainment, exciting action sequences, and some nail-biting suspense. It's one of those movies that you watch on a rainy day with a big bowl of popcorn and a handful of friends. And the fact that it's not marred by a lot of the usual pitfalls of modern action films makes Toy Soldiers even better. It's not on the same level as Die Hard, but nothing much is.
