An action pack thriller.
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Director Norberto Barba directed the independence "Blue Tiger" starring Virginia Madsen. Not a bad movie. And his next movie "Solo" is much better. Sure, nothing new about the plot. About a cyborg that somehow got soft spot in his "heart" and disobey direct order to destroy civilians. Eventually it is destroyed but guess what it survived. But the good thing about this DVD is the powerful sound. Until the recently released T2 special edition, I think this is one of the best sound for an action movie on DVD. Consider to add this title to your DVD collection if you are an action movie fans. I did."
Don't Underate This movie--There are so far only 2 reviews
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This movie is underrated, and how are you supposed to tell how good it is with only 3 reviews? There are 3 different opinions here, but it is up to you who you believe. I really enjoyed this movie. It is almost like a PG-13 Terminator 2 with much less violence and a different plot. Solo is a "robot" that stumbles upon a village of Mexican Farmers. They are being attacked by stubborn rebels but Solo quickly gets rid of this threat. He teaches them how to fight back, and they get their turn for fighting back. Action-a little bit of love, a good plot-what more could you need? This story brings together the thought of friendship through tough odds and different races. The acting is quite good, the plot is believable, and it teaches you some good facts about how to live your life. Hatred--or friendship. Solo has his hands filled with battling soldiers, and even a new improved version of the same kind of robot he is.THIS MOVIE IS NOT THE BEST IN THE WORLD, BUT IS DEFINITELY WORTH SEEING."
Pretty good show

"This cyborg called solo Knows how to think for himself and has emotions.He did belong to the army until he started to realize he was hurting innocent people so he wages a one-man-war against his own army when they look for him.The film could use a little more action but it was still pretty good.out of curiosity i think they should make a seqeul to it"
Decent Sci-Fi action flick
(3 out of 5 stars)
"Solo, staring Mario Van Peebles, is not a classic. Solo, the film, reminds of Predator, another sci-fi action film staring good-ole Arnold, with the jungle setting and the army running around killing people. In fact Predator isn't much better, but that's another review. If you're ever bored, ya know, on a Sunday afternoon, like me, check this movie out. The writing is mediocre, Mario Van Peebles turns in a decent performance, the action is light, and the jungle setting looks really nice."
