Soldier - Good Sci - Fi,
This review is from: Soldier [DVD]  (DVD)
If you like Science Fiction as I do but hate bad Science Fiction, you'll enjoy this film. I was torn between giving it 4 or 5 stars but then I considered other films and series, Star Wars, Alien(s), Battlestar etc, I decided it was a very good 4!
Kurt Russell plays a failed Military Experiment in cloned soldiers who are discarded after a 'superior model' is produced. Beaten to a pulp after giving his own best shot against one of the new troops, he is literally thrown out with the rubbish by a garbage scowl onto 'a rubbish planet!'
On the planet he finds a colony of humans who take him in, care for his wounds and help him recover. Unfortunately his history catches up on him through Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and he reacts to certain situations which the colonists find disturbing.
The new clones meanwhile are sent to the planet on a training exercise and soon come across the colonists, who are thought of as good target practice. Kurt Russell, seeing the destruction returns to the colony and fights not only the new troops but the planets stormy weather sytem.
If you like good Sc-Fi, you'll like this, lots!
