Joe Dante United States, 1998

CJ Roy's rating of the film Small Soldiers

I can't believe what I miss as a child in that ending. The upstanding are as easily bought as anything else, the children can never see past their hormones, the conglomerate never runs into setbacks with enough capitalist arms-pedalling ingenuity and Gorgon (symbolizing a world to strive towards), despite being a beautiful thought, never exists and the pursuit of it almost certainly leads to tragedy/disillusionment.
