Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning
Van Damme and Lundgren return as genetically enhanced warriors 1 Reviews
The ringleader of a gang of murderous home invaders unmasks himself as genetically enhanced series hero Luc Deveraux (Van Damme), who then proceeds to shoot the wife and child of a military man named John (Adkins). Our strapping protagonist awakes from a coma nine months later with vengeance on his mind. But is John seeking out Van Damme’s test-tube-cloned killer of his own free will – or is something else making him do it?
Director John Hyams treats this Z-level trash with a pomposity that verges on laughable. But get past all that ephemera and you’ll witness some genuinely inventive action scenes. It’s almost worth wading through the wearisome setup to get to the fun stuff. But there is a reason fast-forward buttons were invented.
