Summary: Another great Kurt Russell sci-fi flick. He's a legend.
Kurt Russell returns in a difficult role, playing a programmed-from-birth super soldier who gets retired and dumped on a garbage planet. The difficulty lies in the fact that his character has almost no personality, and basically lacks all emotion. Still, as a sci-fi action-adventure, this movie gets high marks, and the special effects are up to par. Fans who like to watch Kurt Russell kick some ass and kill the bad guys should love this film, I know I sure did.

Summary: I've seen this nonsense before
Kurt Russell, whose career peaked sometime around "The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes", returns to play a killing machine with a heart of gold. There's some spaceships and some fighting and a little kid and no one understands him because he's a killing machine and isn't that sad and oh by the way here come the bad guys and he's the only one who can stop them. If you're feeling that your IQ might be getting too high, I recommend seeing this one on a double bill with the Mario Van Peebles tour-de-force "Solo", which also sucks.

Summary: I'm sure somebody liked it.
While full of good wholesome violence, vengeance, and effects, I can imagine Kurt Russell being asked about his performance in "Soldier" in an interview someday.

"So Mr. Russell, after some relatively good movies, there was 'Soldier'."

"Well, the screenwriters, directors, and producers had a very specific concept, and we all worked hard to fulfill that concept perfectly."

It was not a good concept.
