Daft B-movie sci-fi that sees a futuristic soldier bred only for service is replaced by a newer, better model and left for dead on a planetary waste dump. The inevitable showdown ensues. Cheap and cheerful nonsense.
Soldier is a really well done sci-fi the right amount of action and thinking (some may think too much action). It is surprisingly subtle and interesting. Kurt Russel does a great job and really sells a character who almost never speaks. A great movie.
I was pleasantly surprised by this. It wasn't what I was expecting at all. The story veered clear of cliches and predictable plot avenues. Kurt Russel was very low key compared to what I'm used to seeing from him, playing the emotionally juevenile but survival savvy engineered killer. Refreshingly intelligent.
I really enjoy this movie, the action is great, the plot is decent and Kurk Russell does a good job portraying a man who is completely void of emotion. With that said, if you do not care for straight-up action films this is not for you.
