Toy Soldier

TOY SOLDIER is the littlest action movie you’ll see all day...in height and length. With a damsel-in- distress hostage trapped behind enemy lines, Captain Mac is her only hope. His platoon was ambushed and has taken cover in a desert gully. He’s outgunned and outmanned but he has a ton of courage packed into his little plastic action figure body!
This “little” film packs a huge punch. Made using macro-photography, stop-motion, visual effects, and classic action movie techniques from the Shwarzenegger era, director Will Allen’s humorous homage to classic action films sits somewhere between Team America and Black Hawk Down...but shorter. Much shorter.
