Trivia

The premise of this story involves inanimate objects taking on a life of their own. Perhaps not so coincidentally, it was directed by Brian Henson, who--like his late father, Jim--has some experience with giving life to inanimate objects. See more »

Goofs

In "Battleground", during the battle between the main character and the toy soldiers, two soldiers are shown with a LAW, one loading it. All forms of the LAW are one-shot throw-a-way weapons and are not reloadable. See more »

Not scary at all
29 May 2011 | by diegohb-1See all my reviews

A package of toys with soldiers, helicopters and heavy weapon?? Really??? Is that supposed to be scary??? A pack of toys fighting a professional killer???

I wonder who give this tile the classification of "Horror". It doesn't even qualify as "Drama". It should have been "Comedy".

The "commando" toy, who is supposed to show an evil expression, completely wrecks the little suspense created by the other toys when he tries to stab the killer with a 6 mm knife.

The plot is very predictable. When the killer is counting the toys to see if one is missing, you KNOW there is one toy missing...

This is like Toy Story with aggressive toys instead of friendly and funny toys.

Don't waste an hour of your life watching this.

It doesn't worth it.
