release year:1998 genre:action/adventure/comedy viewing setting:home DVD, 12/5/98 what I expected:funny, if senseless mayhem what I got:a bit of a disappointment, actually
synopsis:Thanks to a powerful military microchip, a prototype toy line comes alive and causes chaos.
impressions:This was a fairly corny movie. It had some funny parts (mostly the voice of Tommy Lee Jones as the commander of the hostile toys) but for some reason I found it generally stupid. It was stuck in the limbo between a good kids' movie and something like a Chucky movie.
acting:Not bad, really; as I said, Tommy Lee Jones' voice work was the highlight.
final word:It just didn't click with me.
