This movie should have been a bigger hit. It's not your average futuristic sci-fi action movie. It has deeper messages than one might expect. The main idea is in the future, soldiers are bred and trained into ruthless killing machines... Then fast-forward further into the future and the older killing machine soldiers become considered obsolete. So, they are discarded like trash - like others who are discarded in the future. One old-school (still futuristic killing machine, but not as advanced and young as the new and synthetically and drug-enhanced ones) soldier, Kurt Russell, survives as he is dumped with trash on a planet allocated as a garbage-filled place. Although he was bred and trained to not bond with others, he finds himself connecting to a community of discarded people on this nasty planet. Even though he winds up rejected by these people who are afraid of him, he is still around when the new killing machine soldiers come to cruelly play war games against this community. The old school soldier is the only hope for these poor souls as the newer soldiers come... Watch it. Own it. It's worth having in your collection!
