Austin Chronicle

DIRECTED BY: Paul Anderson

REVIEWED: 10-26-98

In a futuristic Darwinian galaxy, men are raised as animalistic warriors whose only dictum in life is to kill or be killed. Then one of them finds himself on a planet of peace-loving pioneers. This routine-sounding adventure is sure to have some sharp angles provided by talented scriptwriter David Webb Peoples (Unforgiven). British filmmaker Anderson has made a splash in America (with the original Mortal Kombat and Event Horizon) as a director of kinetic action spectacles. Expect Soldier to be a full assault.
