I haven’t really been keeping up with the “Universal Soldier” franchise, but I have seen probably most of them, including director Peter Hyam’s last film in the series, “Universal Soldier: Regeneration”, which was surprisingly decent. That movie featured Jean-Claude Van Damme as the hero, with Dolph Lundgren appearing later in the movie. This latest one, “Universal Solder: Day of Reckoning” features JCVD as … the bad guy? With Dolph at his side? Versus Scott Adkins? I have absolutely no idea. I’m not sure if they’re still even working within the “Universal Soldier” canon, though JCVD seems to be sporting the same character name. In any case, love the totally “so ’80s” voiceover work.
Surviving Unisols Luc Deveraux (Jean-Claude Van Damme) and Andrew Scott (Dolph Lundgren) must battle anarchy and build a new order ruled by Unisols without government oversight. They are weeding out the weak and constantly testing their strongest warriors in brutal, life-and-death combat. Luc has emerged operating the Unisol Church of Eventualism, a self-help organization that takes in wayward Unisols whom the government has been secretly operating as remote-controlled sleeper agents. His mission is to liberate these Unisols from the implanted memories and the lies the government has inserted in them.
The film also stars Kristopher Van Varenberg, Mariah Bonner, and Andrei Arlovski. According to IMDB.com, the film is scheduled to for this November 30th, 2012, likely on DVD/Blu-ray.
