After spending the best years of his life waging war across the galaxy, monosyllabic soldier Kurt Russell gets junked in place of next year's model: Lee, an upgraded, genetically engineered supertrooper. Unfortunately for the audience, DNA wasn't the only thing getting recombinated here. The movie is filled with scenes cloned from movies like Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, Blade Runner and Star Trek II.
After being downsized to a planet used as a garbage dump, Russell falls in with a group of outcasts and experiences the first stirrings of human feelings. Although the sets are visually striking, you've seen the eventual climactic battle before in another galaxy far, far away. Like Russell's character, Soldier seems destined for the trash heap.
