  • A hitman gets hit on by toy soldiers!

    I read this story years ago, and it didn't strike me as filmable. But they've done a great job with this one. Considering there's not a word of dialogue in the whole thing, unless you count the odd roar of pain from a brilliant William Hurt, it manages to keep the tension and story going.

    It's your basic hitman kills toy maker and mum sends toy soldiers to kill him for revenge. At first it's quite funny, as their little guns are like tiny pinpricks in his skin and he seems to be winning out. But the little men have a lot of other stuff up their sleeve.

    You really do have to suspend your disbelief, but it's a very interesting little story, with a neat twist ending.

    And well done to William Hurt for commanding the screen without saying a word.
