Soldier. 1998.

A baby picked from birth to be trained as a soldier is deemed obsolete and dumped on a planet. Taken in by civilians of the planet, he stands with them when the new breed of soldiers start invading.

I have always felt this film was very underrated, a new breed of soldiers come in under the command of Jason Isaacs and takes over from Gary Busey's squad lead by Kurt Russell who is dumped on a planet and taken in by Sean Pertwee and his family and community. It has a good build up from the start with introducing the characters and the people on the planet and the good war towards the end. The acting from everyone is strong even with Busey and his "Daddy's" stories are a bit of a laugh but able to be serious at the same time.
