Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Small Soldiers

Hartland toys has been taken over by a large conglomerate. The head of the company (Leary) decides he wants to make a line of soldier toys called the Commando Elite. He wants to make the villians Gorganites, gentile yet wierd looking creatures who were origianally supposed to help kids to learn but were rejected. The toys were created and shipped to a small town store. However, the toys were supposed to "Play Back" when played with. Someone foolishly put rejected military chips into the toys and they're now pretty much living things. Major Chip Hazard (Jones) and the other Commandos reak havok on the small town. Archer (Langella) nd the Gorganites would like to help but they're only programmed to hide and loose. A funny send up of war movies. Chip Hazard is voiced by Tommy Lee Jones, Link Static is voiced by Bruce Dern, and the other Commandos are voiced by memberes of the origional "Durty Dozen". Archer is voiced by Frank Langella and the other Gorganites are voiced by the members of Spinal Tap!
