When it comes to details like plot, character development, and genuine excitement, the film is lost in space.

There's too little character development and no reason to care.

This is a blood-and-bullet fest, tediously filled with lots of breaking glass, neck-crunching and spine-twisting action, and flamethrowers.

Inexplicably, David Webb Peoples, the screenwriter of Blade Runner and Unforgiven, is responsible for this awful mess

As action films go, Soldier is a bad gamble: it rolls snake eyes on every front.

...poignancy doesn't interfere with director Anderson's primary objective, which is to show people shooting each other and blowing stuff up.

It's a big, clanging, brutal, actioner in which we search the murk in vain for the sparks of humanity the moviemakers keep promising us.

A waste of snappy set decoration!

Even taken as a loud no-brainer action movie you'll find that Soldier ends rather abruptly and unsatisfyingly.

Soldier didn't deserve to be treated so harshly critics, but it didn't deserve recommendations either.

I doubt that Kurt Russell has ever had less dialogue to work with than he has in this film.

If you didn't know any better, you would think I was about to describe the plot of a Chuck Norris or Jean Claude Van Damme straight to video film.

Everything in this film is criminally bland, except for Russell's badass attitude.

Yet another video game for the big screen which has momentum and a terrific set going for it.
