I first seen this movie like a year and a half ago and I loved it, I
decided to get the DVD last year for my birthday.. It has the right
amount of suspense, action and drama.. This movie is about prep school
called The Regis School and its packed with rebellious kids, in which
one kid William Tepper (Sean Astin) has a hard time adjusting due to
prior rejections from other schools cause they couldn't control his
rebellious act and now at The Regis School committing more acts of a
rebellion there school gets taken over by terrorists on a random day
and which the real reason is because the leader Luis Cali's (Andrew
Divoff) father has been sent to prison,and the leader will do anything
including killing the students, setting bombs and so forth in order to
get his father back.
Along side William Tepper, is his rebellious friends at the Regis School, one in particular is Joey Trotta (Wil Wheaton) in which this guy holds a troubled past of living in a Mafia family and being sent to The Regis School because of hating his father for who he is and which now he must deal with these terrorists taking over the school, so William, Joey and there friends must band together to stop these terrorists from violent acts and hazardous tactics.
This movie was really awesome and I believe people should notice it more because when people think of a good hostage movie they would say "Die Hard" and even though I would have to agree with them, they need to recognize that Toy Soldiers was a good thriller, it sure had my heart beating because the students are my age and I would be scared to confront terrorists like these if they took over our school ... But overall this movie is really worth a good 112 minutes of your time and If I had a decision to rent or buy it... I WOULD BUY IT! I recommend it with a lot of hype! 8/10
When I first saw this movie, I rented it because my dad said he had saw
it and he recommended it, in which I did and I was totally surprised
and blown away by the performances in this movie. This movie had a
decent plot about a family taking a vacation in the Rockies and happen
to meet up with a friendly guy at first but when the family tries to
run out on him during the trip because of a couple of conflicts, he
takes matters into his own hands and takes them hostage, along for the
ride. Wade (Kevin Bacon) as the bad guy scared me because you would
never know what he would do next, even though he mostly focused on
getting out and being cleared of trouble then killing a lot of people,
like some guy on a rampage and his sidekick Terry (John C. Reilly)
really was a ignoring sidekick, not much dialouge with his character
but he was really a klutz in standing guard and how to control the
The family played by Gail (Meryl Streep) the mom, Tom (David Strathairn) the dad and Roarke (Joseph Mazzello) the son showed a very good performance in this movie and had the brightest concepts of escaping danger, things from sign language to swiss army knife and to smoke signals really kept the movie alive and it was spectacular.
I do recommend this movie to anyone who is a Kevin Bacon fan, I have been for a while and I love his movies, this movie is very suspenseful and will keep your heart beating to the end, It was worth renting a good adventurous thriller set in the Rockies, Just a very good 112 minutes of sitting on the edge of your seat.
