The Soldier

The Soldier Information

The Soldier (Codename: The Soldier in the UK) is a 1982 American action film directed by James Glickenhaus and starring Ken Wahl. The film also features Klaus Kinski, Alberta Watson and a cameo by country music superstar George Strait.


The KGB plants a nuclear device in the Saudi Arabian Ghawar oilfield. They threaten to detonate it, thereby contaminate 50% of the world oil reserve, unless Israel withdraws its settlements from the West Bank. The fact that the KGB is behind this threat is unknown. The American president contemplates starting a war with Israel, in order to save the world from oil crisis.

A CIA agent codenamed The Soldier (Ken Wahl), working outside the usual channels, is assigned to the case. After Russian agent Dacha (Klaus Kinski) tries to have him terminated, he contacts the CIA director from the US embassy in Berlin. He then enters the Israeli embassy. He and his team of another four agents start cooperating with the Israeli Mossad, represented by their director of covert operations Susan Goodman (Alberta Watson).

When the four agents gain access to an American intercontinental ballistic missile with a nuclear warhead in Smith Center, Kansas, The Soldier threatens to nuke Moscow, and forces the Russian KGB to dismantle their device in Saudi Arabia.
