Critic Reviews of "Soldier"
Chicago ReaderMarch 07, 2007
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.
Houston ChronicleJuly 21, 2005
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.
Globe and MailJuly 12, 2002
I doubt that Kurt Russell has ever had less dialogue to work with than he has in this film.
Los Angeles TimesFebruary 14, 2001
A potent comic-book-style action-adventure.
Mr. ShowbizJanuary 01, 2000
Has there ever been a more insipid sci-fi action film than Soldier? Probably, although it's hard to imagine.
Arizona RepublicJanuary 01, 2000
Soldier is so mediocre, it might have been more mindless fun if it had been even worse.

...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.

Wow. What a terrible movie.

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