Review by John K. Adams
Are you seeking a family friendly movie for your children’s entertainment? Time Toys is a rare gem that delivers both wholesome entertainment and an uplifting outcome. That is a tall order in these cynical times.
Who wouldn’t want their kids to see a movie about a band of friends setting out to save the future? Time Toys promotes the positive qualities of mercy in conflict resolution, team work and the virtue of always carrying extra batteries.
The ensemble cast features the engaging talents of JJ Totah (Boomer), Griffin Cleveland (Matt), Mackenzie Aladjem (Jenny), Evan Roe (Bryce), Dalton Cyr (Holden), Samuel Gilbert (Mel) and Jaden Betts (Eddie). Each contributes an individual voice and skills to the whole. One fully expects these natural young actors are good friends off-screen as well.
Ed Begley Jr. shines as Wiz, a washed-up genius who assists the kids in their quest to reign in the power hungry scientists.
Greg Germann is hilarious as Weller, the evil mastermind behind the diabolical, time traveling Pandora Project. Parvesh Singh Cheena (Franklin) and Rob Van Dam are the not-so-heavy heavies who back Weller up.
Time Toys’ witty script was written and directed by Mark Rosman and deftly produced by Suzanne Lyons and Rosman. Judicious use of excellent special effects was provided by Mammal Studios.
Time Toys has a nationwide release on iTunes and all digital cable and satellite On Demand platforms.
The anti-bullying organization Champions Against Bullying helped sponsor the film’s L.A. premiere.
