The story takes place after a Christmas holiday with the regular toys finding themselves trapped in unusual territory with a group of new and delusional action figures. Together they must find their way back to their child's bedroom and to safety. Written by
Reptillus Maximus, the commander of the Battlesaurs, is voiced by Kevin McKidd, who had a leading role of a semi-fictional Roman soldier in a semi-historical TV series "Rome". The character of Maximus is a slight parody of McKidd's character from "Rome". See more »
The Cleric gives a thumb down signal known as "Pollice verso". Whether this is actually the correct signal to seal the fate of a gladiator after combat is the subject of much debate. See more »
During the credits, that night in Mason's room, Reptillus happily bears Mason's name on his hand and looks forward to seeing Trixie at Mason and Bonnie's next playdate, already scheduled for the following week. See more »
This just feels like a typical Pixar movie with run-of-the-mill writing. But the character writing was alright, Bonnie is still the same and with the curiosity a child would have, her friend is pretty cool, too. It's nice to give Bonnie something new other than playing with toys all the time. I also liked the little kitty and Buzz, they were both alright, too.
The voice acting was rough and Bonnie's voice sounded like an 8- year-old. She is supposed to be around 4 or something and because the girl who's voicing her was 14, unless they're proving to age her, she should be hired by a new voice actor. Especially Bonnie's voice, it sounded so annoying, like nails-on-a-chalkboard. Angel Kitty's voice was alright, though.
The moral was unnecessary and heavy-handed.
The other good parts is the jokes and the story was sympathetic. I suppose young kids age 6 and under might find something to enjoy out of this otherwise somewhat bland adventure of the imaginative toys.
