Not scary at all
29 May 2011 | by (Argentina) – See 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.
