Overview

After scripting Blade Runner and Twelve Monkeys, David Webb Peoples continued to traverse the science fiction landscape with this action-adventure directed by Paul Anderson. A prologue shows infants classified 1A and placed in an academy promoting violent militarism. Spawned in such an environment, Sgt. Todd Kurt Russell became a top-ranking interplanetary fighter. However, military upgrades in genetic engineering made Todd obsolete. Todd's commanding officer, Captain Church Gary Busey, has a confrontation with West Point-trained Colonel Mekum Jason Isaacs, who heads the new generation of genetically engineered fighters. One such warrior is Caine 607 Jason Scott Lee, who defeats Todd and others led by Church. The trio, presumed dead, is put in a garbage ship which dumps them on the distant Arcadia 234 planet. However, Todd survives and is nursed by homesteaders Sandra Connie Nielsen and Mace Sean Pertwee, while their mute son Nathan brothers Jared and Taylor Thorne watches. Todd is regarded with suspicion by others in the colony. But when the warrior supermen, led by Caine 607, attack the settlement, Todd turns out to be their only line of defense. The one-man army springs into action to eliminate the super squadron amid leftover props from Demolition Man, Event Horizon and other sci-fi movies.

    Toy Soldier

    Soldier reminds me of the film Equilibrium in the since that the emotions are sucked out of the main character (Kurt Russell), because emotions are considered dangerous. However it's not as good as Equilibrium. The movie still has a personality though due to Kurt Russell, playing it straight and not talking very much,which is tough to do. I'm going to be very generous with the rating only because I like Kurt Russell in a few of John Carpenter classics like Big Trouble In Little China, Esacpe From New York etc. Still Soldier is entertaining to watch and the EFX are pretty cool.

    A Fine Job

    I personally enjoyed this movie. Director Paul Anderson (Resident Evil,Event Horizon,Mortal Kombat)did a fine job directing this different,but entertaining Sci-Fi adventure.

    Very entertaining no brainer

    I personally thought this film to be very underrated. Sure... it's not a Sci-Fi classic by no means but it wasn't bad either. I enjoyed the look into a dark, cold almost emotionless future and thought Kurk Russell did a fine job as the 'Soldier'. The special effects were solid and the action very crisp.
