  Still a great movie

| | See all Jax0205's reviews (32)

I remember watching this movie in the cinema when I was 8 or 9. I just saw it on TV a week ago and still found it enjoyable. Who doesn't love the idea of action figures coming to life. Always going to be an all time great for me.

  Love it

I was about 7 when i seen this for the first time,i'm 20 now and enjoy it just as much as i did back when i was a kid. Iv'e often thought that there are a lot of hidden messages in this move. Never lose your inner child! And in a sense it's a real 'Under Dog' storey. Geat,fun movie for anyone of any age.

Gorgonites :)

  Small Yet Scary Family Fun....

*Don't be fooled by the cover. This isn't a film aimed at young children. The small soldiers (Commando Elite) have actually been programmed with US Military Chips and their aim is to exterminate the mish-mash Monster Figures called the Gorganite's!
*The film is a great mix of between the normal footage with the animation. The story's quite easy to follow. There's plenty of great action that smaller children may find a little scary. All round fun family film.

This film will have the whole family laughing. The fim itself is very entertaining. But the only thing that let it down was kurstin dunst. She is a good actress but she was not the best choice for this film.

  Brilliant sci-fi comedy

Forget the 12 certificate; there is nothing nasty in this film. The most lethal device the bad guys manage to come up with is a nail gun and nobody dies. This is comedy action all the way.

The plot from the toys' point of view is a simple one. The Commando Elite have been programmed to hunt down and destroy the entirely peaceful Gorgonites. Why? Because soldiers need enemies and the Gorgonites are ugly! Meanwhile, the Gorgonites have been programmed to find Gorgon, learning what they can along the way. It's good guys against bad guys so there's never any doubt who's going to win.

From the humans' point of view it's just as good. Aren't we all sick of adverts that show toy trucks popping up on the top of Mount Rushmore? Doesn't every kid want a toy that does exactly what they see on the adverts? Too right they do!

What makes this film so good is that it's believable. Military research labs are working on real versions of the Commando Elite right now. The only bit that strains the limits is when they somehow bring a bunch of plastic dolls to life but I'll let that pass.

I've watched this several times already and I never get tired of the final scene where the Gorgonites are found safe and sound, even though I could see it coming first time round. I won't tell you where they are because that would spoil the plot. You work it out. Watch it; you'll love it.

  Great Family Film

Considering this film is 10 years old, the visual effects are very impressive.
Take no notice of the certificate age because my son is only 5 and he enjoyed it, I mean, isn't it every little boys dream to have his action figures come to life?
All in all its a great family film for all ages.

Great film, bit complex & complicated for the kids and the rest of the family.
I didn't realize it could be so fun to watch small toys destroy a house after some rubbish toys that say they can't fight.
But I just hate the kid who plays Alan.
They could have chosen anyone in the world, but no, it had to be the most annoying little twit of all.
But he is the reason it 's four stars and not five.
