Flat Fairy Tale
27 November 1999 | by sutcalSee all my reviews

A little boy dreams to life a toy tin soldier who just happens to love a ballerina toy.

The tin soldier becomes somewhat of a father figure to the young boy.

The climax of the movie pairs the soldier and the ballerina.

If this is the best that Jon Voight can deliver (directs himself) then his career has fallen to the lowest depths.

AVOID this one like the plague
