The action in John Hyams’ “Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning” looks pretty cool, even if the dialogue sounds practically cringe-worthy. But hey, you don’t watch these things for script excellence, do you? (If you are, you’re barking up the wrong tree, chums.) Check out a new trailer for “Day of Reckoning”, which finds Scott Adkins going up against Dolph Lundgren and Jean-Claude Van Damme. Plus, a lot of musclebound dudes trying to kill him, apparently.
John (Adkins, The Expendables 2) wakes up from a coma to discover his wife and daughter were slaughtered in a brutal home invasion. Haunted by images of the attack, he vows to kill the man responsible, Luc Deveraux (Van Damme). While John tries to piece his reality back together, things get more complicated when he is pursued by a relentless UniSol (Arlovski). As John gets closer to Deveraux and the rouge army of genetically enhanced warriors led by back-from-the-dead leader Andrew Scott (Lundgren), John discovers more about himself and begins to call into question everything he believed to be true.
Starring Jean-Claude Van Damme, Scott Adkins, Andrei “The Pit Bull” Arlovski, and Dolph Lundgren.
