This appealing formulaic action adventure (1998) displays a lot of conviction in its not-too-flashy action scenes and a little levity in the gradual socialization of Russell's character.

The action is handled fairly well, but it's routine, and there's no satisfaction in seeing Todd waste men who are no more bloodthirsty than he is.

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

A potent comic-book-style action-adventure.

Soldier is so mediocre, it might have been more mindless fun if it had been even worse.

Die-hard action fans will get their money's worth; the rest of us might want to look elsewhere. (Blu-ray edition)

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

Despite being hampered by second-rate special effects and too many action film cliches, Soldier does have its fun parts.

Soldier didn't deserve to be treated so harshly critics, but it didn't deserve recommendations either.
February 8, 2003
Wow. What a terrible movie.
January 20, 2003
Disappointing.
December 8, 2002
There's too little character development and no reason to care.
October 15, 2002
A doggedly simple-minded diversion of rare purity.
September 10, 2002
Everything in this film is criminally bland, except for Russell's badass attitude.
August 30, 2002
Competent and nothing more.

Soldier wants to be an intense thriller with cerebral significance, but suffers from self-seriousness and silly cliches.
January 1, 2001
It resonates on more levels than just a simple action 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.
