Dennis King
Tulsa World

He's The Terminator's distant cousin. He's Solo, and he's jerrybuilt from parts of so many other movies that it's hard to recognize a single original element in this android-warrior saga with Mario Van Peebles in the thankless title role.

The action is neither big nor imaginatively filmed enough to satisfy fans of the genre, though Van Peebles seems to be enjoying his crack at sad-eyed, Chaplinesque pathos.

These escapist showdown movies are only as good as their villains and heroes. The heavies here are more of those ubiquitous gung-ho military types who are due to be dishonorably discharged from further cinematic duty.

Jason Caro
Radio Times

There are too many moments of unintentional comedy caused by the ropey macho dialogue and the hammy performances of bad guys William Sadler and Barry Corbin.

Here's a surprise tucked into the languishing days of summer movies. Arriving with hardly any attention is a satisfying, even fun, action picture about a futuristic soldier named Solo.

Since the hero and the villains are equally mechanical, the big, loud battles are as exciting and suspenseful as watching people play Mortal Kombat for 90 minutes.

Solo is at least instructive as a miscellany of action movie cliches in one neat and depressing package.

Solo contains the usual shoot-'em-ups, an undistinguished performance from Van Peebles, plus lots of crummy dialogue.

Mindless entertainment for the end of the summer, with emphasis on the mindless.

The best one can say for Norberto Barba is that he directs a slick piece of goods. But no amount of fast cutting or tempo can disguise the material's simplistic, thoughtless nature.

It simply plods along to it's inevitable, uninvolving and pretty uninteresting end.

Silly action yarn furthering the demise of van Peebles.

It's not a great film, but it is a little above average.

The film ends up having more laughs than a comedy.

Since filmgoers are told early on that there is only one other super-cyborg prototype in the world, well, guess what the big climax is?

As movie androids go, Solo is a softie, and that's his problem.

Solo unspools with the intelligence and sophistication of a junior-grade comic book.
