      Audience Member A kick-ass movie when you're 8 years old and but doesn't age too well. If you like acting cardboard, Ken Wahl is your man. Regardless, the film has decent pacing and a lot of redeeming qualities in the action scenes. And the Tangerine Dream soundtrack is wicked too. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 09/27/20 Full Review Audience Member Another bad movie with some great scenes. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member probably sucks, but I remember digging it in high school Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Years before the Kuwait war this movie came out. They mention what ifs. Kuwait was talked about. That plus the special group who are used. Makes for good suspense. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Watchable but kinda silly Ken Wahl action joint in which his codename is 'The Soldier', which makes me think they ran out of fucking codenames, y'know? Rental unless you're just a Wahl completist. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review dave j Thursday, March 6, 2013 (1982) The Soldier ACTION/ ESPIONAGE Lousy low budget actioner which at that time had a theatrical release but if it was made now would've went straight-to-rental starring Ken Wahl as "The Soldier" assembling his co operative group after some KGB agents successfully stolen a nuclear missile device for the intention of blowing up some oil barrels located somewhere in Saudi desert. Think of it as a small budget cross between Jason Bourne and James Bond. Another small appearance by Klaus Kinski. 2 out of 4 stars Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Eddie Harrison delirious macho fantasy Rated: 3/5 Mar 6, 2022 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy Klaus Kinski makes a "Special Appearance" as a KGB agent, but his cameo lasts only about as long as it takes to tie one's shoes. Rated: 1.5/4 Aug 30, 2021 Full Review Diego Galán El Pais (Spain) The story is noticeably confusing.
