A young boy cons a delivery guy to arrange for a box of them to "fall of the back of the truck". Archer, leader of the Commando Elite's enemy the Gorgonites hides in Alan's backpack. Chip Hazard, leader of the Commando Elite sees this as aiding the enemy, and they will stop at nothing to kill the Gorgonites and the human allies.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

Joe Dante the director of Gremlins has done it again. The small soldiers are cool designs, there is a great supporting cast of voice over actors playing the Gorgonites and the Commando Elite. This is a great movie, my only problem isn't with the movie, it's with the rating, PG-13 is a tad strong, there was more violence is STAR WARS EPISODE 1 and it only got a PG. I really wish we would clean up the MPAA and get rid of those rotting old corpses that rate movie and give movies Ratings they don't deserve. I give this movie...9 STARS

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I agree that this movie was unjusticely given a PG-13 rating, I for a party of one think it should have been PG. Anyway, the effects are perfect. The cast, human and voice over alike is just perfect, great, wonderful. This is a great science fiction. I give it....10 STARS

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ STORY (The story was just perfect, perfect)
+ CAST (The cast, human and voice over did a great job)
+ ACTION FIGURE EFFECTS (The effects were just perfect)
+ DESIGN (Some of the Commando Elite was scarier looking then the monster toys)
+ CHARACTERS (The characters were well written)

AND FINALLY....

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- PG-13 (Neither of us thought it deserved a PG-13 rating)
