The review of this Movie prepared by Jack Bauer

Sort of a Universol Soldier meets The Postman by way of Shane in outer space. A trained-from-birth super-soldier is replaced by genetically engineered more-super-soldiers, and his predumed-to-be-dead body is dumped on a garbage planet. Ther he meets a community of peaceful settlers but has a hard time fitting in. Thene the new soldiers go on a training mission, start killing everybody, and the Soldier must step in and defend them. Lots of gunfire, with the good-guy and bad-guy schools of gun accuracy in full effect. Throw in some affection from a woman who's husband conveniently dies and a mute moppet of a child who takes a liking to the Soldier, and you've got a modern Saturday action matinee movie.
