Todd is a veteran of numerous galactic conflicts and, having lived by the American Force's Rules for Life since childhood, is one of the best. Scarred, toughened and numbed by a lifetime of fighting, he stands as the embodiment of Darwin's principle of survival of the fittest. But Todd's glory days are over. Scientific advancement has fostered a new breed of warriors.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Lisa Alspector, Chicago Reader
"A potent comic-book-style action-adventure."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"...poignancy doesn't interfere with director Anderson's primary objective, which is to show people shooting each other and blowing stuff up."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"Wow. What a terrible movie."
‑ John R. McEwen, Film Quips Online
"A doggedly simple-minded diversion of rare purity."
‑ Margaret A. McGurk, Cincinnati Enquirer
"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."
‑ Bruce Westbrook, Houston Chronicle
"A waste of snappy set decoration!"
‑ Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"Despite being hampered by second-rate special effects and too many action film cliches, Soldier does have its fun parts."
‑ Chuck O'Leary,
‑ Scott Renshaw,
"Everything in this film is criminally bland, except for Russell's badass attitude."
‑ Kevin N. Laforest, Montreal Film Journal
"I doubt that Kurt Russell has ever had less dialogue to work with than he has in this film."
‑ John Haslett Cuff, Globe and Mail
"Soldier is little more than dumb genre stuff!"
‑ Jay Carr, Boston Globe
"Soldier didn't deserve to be treated so harshly critics, but it didn't deserve recommendations either."
‑ Dragan Antulov,
"There's too little character development and no reason to care."
‑ Tom Meek, Film Threat
"Competent and nothing more."
‑ Jeffrey Westhoff, Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
