The Good Guy Dolls had a bad reputation over the years due to Chucky's publicity of the evil slayings over the years so eight years later the toy company re-issues them trying to forget the horrible incidents.
However, Chucky's battered body was reincarnated as well into a doll and manages to travel to a military school where Andy (Justin Whalin) is sent off to with a bullying commander named Brett C. Sheldon (Travis Fine) and he definetely makes Andy feel unwelcome there.
On Chucky's travel to the school he falls into the hands of another little boy named Ronald Tyler (Jeremy Sylvers) now that Andy is a teenager and Chucky has frightening plans for the child and wants to put his soul into him and tries to kill before Andy tries to put a stop to his evil deeds since he knows Chucky's evil deeds very well.
However, no one at the academy believes Andy which makes things more troublesome for him as well as being bullied by some of the students as well.

 
We have a perfect opening to start off showing the doll being reincarnated which gives the film a nice touch that Chucky's back.
There's a perfect still setting inside a building with a reprising character from part 2 watching TV while it shows camera shots on him which is Chucky watching him as well as a footage of his feet running to another area in the room. We have a great reaction of him after he trips on some marbles as well as toys attacking him.
Then we have a scene with a child named Ronald Tyler opening up the package of a good guy doll as we see a happy reaction from him and then Chucky jumps out of the box which really makes you jump yourself since you least expect that. Perfect timing.
There are also many great camera shots on the doll walking around holding a giant knife looking more evil than ever.
We have a great shot on Andy with his shocked and frightened looks out on the athletic training field after he spots Chucky being carried.
There's also a perfect camera shot on
Sgt. Botnick as he slowly goes up to the doll Chucky to try and buzz cut the hair off and you know something deadly is going to happen to this prick.
We have a brief romantic conversation sequence between Andy and
Kristen out in the woods which looked nice yet it doesn't look too convincing.
There's a perfect slow motion movement on Harold when he jumps on a grenade while trying to protect the rest from getting killed.
We have a perfect scenario inside a funhouse that involves Ronald and Andy as the scene looked well done with their anxiety and energetic performance from battling Chucky
Bottom line is that this flick was interesting as Chucky seems to weed out the assholes in the military. Interesting seeing Andy as an older kid too although it was a different actor but again the story takes place years later than when it was shot. However, the story can be a bit of a drag.

The acting is very well done. Justin Whalin (Andy Barclay) pulls off his character not too bad as the older character by portraying a shy type teen not adjusting to the military academy. He wasn't the best but still above average.
Perrey Reeves (Kristen De Silva) is superb in her role as a touch and serious by nice and caring strudent at the academy. Brings alot to her role too.
Child actor Jeremy Sylvers (Ronald Tyler) was terrific as a typical mischevious and outgoing kid in the film and can really go far in life.
Travis Fine (Cadet Brett C. Sheldon) who came from Georgia (Where acting work is scarce) and moved to Hollywood makes a great asshole as the head cadet. Anyone would wanna plow him in the face and he knew his stuff with his character and one of the best actors in this film. There's a terrific scene with him aggressively and insultingly ordering his military stuudents showing terrific menacing looks as you wanna punch him out big time.
Supporting actor
Andrew Robinson (Sgt. Botnick) lived to play a vicious Sergeant as you can tell with his performance. A great moment when he grabs certain of the cast members heads during breakfast time as he notices they need a new buzzcut and says insulting remarks as you wouldn't want him in your everyday life.

There's a noticeable slit throat and some blood but nothing too gory.
Chucky's face is half slashed and then some other bloody results afterwards

The music was composed by John D'Andrea (Who worked with many 70's teen idols like Shaun Cassidy and Leif Garrett with their records) and by Cory Lerios as they have terrific thumping sounds and cold keyboard playing almost giving you that Nightmare on Elm Street type of feel to it. I loved every bit of it.

Chucky: I got a new game we can play. It's called "Hide the Soul". Trust me, you'll love it.

Chucky: [looking at Andy's copy of "PlayPen"- an adult magazine] My, how you've grown.

Chucky: I got a new body lined up and I'm not gonna let you spoil it.
Andy Barclay: Tyler.
Chucky: Right. Just think, Chucky's gonna be a bro.

Colonel Cochrane: At Kent, we take bed wetters and we turn them into men. So grow-up, Barclay, it's time to forget these fantasies of killer dolls.

Andy Barclay: What are you doing?
Whitehearst: Polishing Sheldon's shoes.
Andy Barclay: He makes you polish his shoes?
Whitehearst: No, I offered out of the kindness of my heart.

Shelton: Relax, Barclay, it's only pain.

Sergeant Clark: If you get hit, you are dead, so hike back to base.

DeSilva: [whispers] Asshole.
Shelton: What was that DeSilva?
DeSilva: I said you asshole, sir.

Chucky: Don't fuck with the Chuck.

Chucky: Who the fuck are YOU?
Tyler: I thought you Good Guy Dolls only said three sentences.
Chucky: I'm new and improved.

Chucky: Just like the good ol' days. Nothin' like a good strangulation to get the circulation goin'.

Chucky: Presto - - you're dead. It's definitely YOU.

Chucky: Oh you gotta be fuckin' kiddin' me.

Chucky: I've gotta get out of this body.

Andy Barclay: We killed you.
Chucky: You know what they say. "You just can't keep a Good Guy down."

Sgt. Botnick: The Romans invented the military cut. You know why?
Andy Barclay: Why?
Sgt. Botnick: To keep their hair short.

Shelton: Who said you could look at me? DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM?
Andy Barclay: Shelton.
Shelton: That's Lieutenant Colonel Shelton to you, asshole.
Andy Barclay: Lt. Colonel Shelton.
Shelton: No, Lieutenant Colonel Shelton, SIR.

Shelton: Whitehearst, you are without a doubt the sorriest excuse for a cadet I've ever seen. Wouldn't you agree?
Whitehearst: No, Sir. I do not agree, Sir.
Shelton: Are you contradicting me, you sorry-ass sack of shit?

Chucky: Tyler? Come out, come out wherever you are. Olly olly oxen free. Get out here you little son of a bitch.

Mr. Sullivan: And what are children but consumer trainees?

Chucky: [searching for Andy on the internet] Come on, Andy. Where are you, you little shit?

Shelton: [laughs] What's the matter Barclay huh? You homesick? You miss your mommy?
[picks up his shoe to find that it is scratched]
Shelton: What the fuck is this?
Andy Barclay: Don't worry about your shoe alright? I'll polish it just give me back the doll
Shelton: No You listen to me tell Whitehurst he's off the hook I got myself another slave and clean up this mess
[gives him back the shoe]
Shelton: You've got 5 demerits
Andy Barclay: What about the doll?
Shelton: Aunt Rosie is coming up Ain't she going to love it won't you?
[makes the doll wave]
