 Soldier Movie Review by Anthony Leong
This genre, which was in its heyday in the Fifties and part of the Sixties, has always been troublesome in recent years, with very few films achieving financial success and critical and critical acclaim (such as "Unforgiven" and "Dances with Wolves").
"Soldier" begins promisingly enough as an examination of a man rediscovering his humanity, doing his best to learn the rules of interaction after having lived his entire life in virtual isolation.
Instead of acting as a point of convergence for the various thematic threads introduced in the first two acts, or as a test as to how much Todd has been changed by his experiences, the third act is merely a cathartic exercise in pyrotechnics and bloodshed, discarding whatever promise the movie had.

 SOLDIER
This suspicion is confirmed at the start of the movie where we allowed to witness key scenes from the training the main character played by Kurt Russell (who speaks even less than he did in Escape from L.A.) underwent since childhood.
However, like all machines he becomes redundant when even better genetically engineered soldiers are introduced and like a piece of machinery he is left for dead and discarded like an old piece of machinery on a planet used for dumping trash.
Until about this point Soldier is vaguely interesting, but things take a sharp downward turn from there on: on the planet he is taken in by a group of refugees who becomes the target of the new genetically engineered troops who are out on a practice run.

 Barnes & Noble.com - Music: Soldier, Iggy Pop, CD, Remastered
In 1980, every punk rocker in Christendom cited Iggy Pop as a key influence, and Soldier was the album where he started asking for some payback.
Original Sex Pistols bassist Glen Matlock, Rich Kids' guitarist Steve New, Ivan Kral of the Patti Smith Group, and former XTC keyboardist Barry Andrews all signed on to back Iggy on Soldier, but the result was hardly the full-frontal rock assault one might have hoped for.
Reportedly, conflicts between producers James Williamson and David Bowie led to both of them walking out on the project, and Iggy is said to have gotten along so poorly with Steve New that he stripped most of New's lead guitar from the mix (which would explain why keyboards and acoustic guitar dominate the album).
