"Solo"... the ultimate one-man army!
Here's a movie that knows its place and doesn't kid itself in trying to
think it's anything intelligent or well-written. "Solo" simply wants to
be a fun action movie, and it succeeds. Looking a lot like 2005's
"Stealth," only with lesser special effects, "Solo" (made almost a
decade before "Stealth") is a one-man army movie to the extreme. It
stars Mario Van Peebles (remember him?) as Solo, an android built by
the army that goes renegade and helps a group of farmers save their
village. But the army wants their billion dollar project back, and will
stop at nothing to get it! I enjoyed "Solo" on the grounds that you
don't have to think very hard, and yet it still entertains. Mario Van
Peebles does a fine job as the android, and I also noticed Adrien Brody
as his programmer. "Solo" was bashed mainly because it was years behind
its time. Had it been released the same year as "Rambo," it may have
found a wider audience. But if you like action and don't want things
like plot or character development to get in the way, see "Solo." It's
a good action movie, and a fun 90 minutes..

Frankly, I Tuned In To See Adrien Brody!
When I stumbled on SOLO on cable TV and realized Adrien Brody, one of my
favorite actors, was third-billed in this Mario Van Peebles action flick, I
decided to record it and check it out later for the heck of it. Turns out
that was a good idea, since I got the most enjoyment out of this derivative
SF/action/adventure when I simply gave up and fast-forwarded to Brody's
scenes as Solo's endearingly scruffy creator Dr. Bill Stewart (sounds like
the kind of bland name they'd give the hero in a 1950s creature feature --
told you SOLO was derivative! :-). Brody's one of the few performers in the
film who actually says his lines with heart and conviction. When he was
emoting opposite Van Peebles & Co., I wonder if Brody ever thought one day
he'd be winning an Oscar for his starring turn in a Roman Polanski drama?
:-) Adrien Brody fans, get the VCR ready; genre fans, try renting THE
MAGNIFICENT SEVEN, FRANKENSTEIN, THE TERMINATOR, or any of the other movies
that SOLO rips off! :-).
