Joe Dante United States, 1998

T. J. Mesen's rating of the film Small Soldiers

A heavy criticism of the underlying mechanics of war; soldiers fight because they're programmed to, anyone can be bought, and the corporations win in the end. As well as the implications of these—a peaceful world (Gorgon) is but a utopia for a society that accepts (and has always) soldiers as toys. War is entertainment is pop culture, and even childhood is perverted by this.
