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.

Soldier doesn't work, although it has potential.

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

Action is everything in this sinewy, visually impressive sci-fi military adventure!

Has there ever been a more insipid sci-fi action film than Soldier? Probably, although it's hard to imagine.

A waste of snappy set decoration!

With a cheerful disregard for characterization and visual texture, Anderson relies on his cgi-jocks and set dressers to flesh out David Webb Peoples's by-the-numbers script.
January 1, 2000
The action is strictly routine.
January 1, 2000
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.

Soldier is little more than dumb genre stuff!
