Still going strong after 20 years, the Universal Soldier series continues with the latest instalment from director John Hyams (Universal Soldier: Regeneration). In what I believe is the fifth film, Van Damme returns as the villain, all menacing with a big bald head, and Dolph Lundgren also plays a villain this time round as the Universal Soldiers go AWOL. Action star Scott Adkins plays the hero who must stop the violent soldiers before it is too late! The first trailer has now been released along with a poster, and you can see both at the bottom of this post.
Jean-Claude Van Damme, Scott Adkins, Andrei “The Pit Bull” Arlovski and Dolph Lundgren star in UNIVERSAL SOLDIER: DAY OF RECKONING, which ups the ante in the UNIVERSAL SOLDIER series, giving you more hard-hitting, bloody, no-holds-barred fighting action.
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.
