Storyline

An eccentric toymaker's last wish is that his brother takes over the running of the business. The brother is a military General, and is out of touch with toymaking, and out of touch with reality too. The business should really have been given to Leslie, who was much more like his toymaking father. When the General starts making weapons instead of toys, Leslie decides to take action. Written by Rob Hartill

Why Robin, Why?????
7 March 2001 | by ryan.kaplanSee all my reviews

This will be short. Don't see this film. It's horrible!!! The plot was pathetic, the acting was ridiculous, and the entire idea bored me to tears. Whatever they were trying to prove by showing an evil military mind corrupting youths by having them play violent video games is shielded by the nauseating quality of this film. Someone had to wrestle a shoe out of my hand because I was going to hurl it at the TV to end this monstrosity of a movie. DON'T SEE IT!!
