For the latest Everything Action commentary, Zach, Chris and Chris Ali dive into the 1998 “classic” Small Soldiers, directed by Gremlins director Joe Dante. Tasked by ranting CEO Denis Leary to make action figures that walk and talk, Jay Mohr makes the mistake of ordering military grade microprocessing chips, which leads to the Commando Elites, led by Chip Hazard (Tommy Lee Jones), to declare all out war against the peaceful Gorgonites and their new human friends. The guys talk get into how terrible Archer is at fighting, how much cooler the Commandos are, the ecclectic soundtrack, the fact that Kevin Dunn is the angry dad in every movie and much more. Small Soldiers is streaming on Netflix and you can queue it up with our commentary to watch along with the Everything Action crew.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
