Critic Reviews for The Toy Soldiers

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

With its stilted monologues and crudely melodramatic air of "shocking realism," Erik Peter Carlson's sophomore feature feels like a series of interlocking fringe-theater one-acts that have only grown more artificial onscreen.

More is decidedly less in "The Toy Soldiers," an unfortunate, way overlong ensemble melodrama nominally set in mid-1980s Southern California.

As compelling as an individual thread or scene might be, the picture as a whole lacks forward momentum, as is often the case with films with asynchronous timelines.

The rough honesty hooks you, and overlapping storylines eventually sort themselves out.

The Toy Soldiers [is] one of the most unsentimentally well-observed and sympathetically humane movies ever made about teens.

Toy Soldiers high drama is well executed and the words spoken so real you feel like you're intruding.
