If you like this movie, you'll love the Special Edition DVD!,
This review is from: Universal Soldier (Special Edition) (DVD)
[Note: Amazon links reviews from the DVD product to that of the Blu-ray product and vice versa for the same title. Annoying if you want a review specific to the format you're looking for. So if you're looking for a format-specific review, be sure to check where the review is from, in the info at the beginning of the review. The following review is for the DVD edition that came out 4 years before the Bu-ray edition. Just FYI.]
Well, most people who are going to buy the DVD are probably familiar with the movie anyway, so I won't repeat the plot. Watching it again after several years, I really have to say it's one of the better movies of the action genre, especially when you consider that you have people doing the stunts instead of lots of CGI like in today's movies.
As for the entire Special Edition DVD itself -- it has some great extras! Much better than some of the offerings I've seen on other DVDs of movies that were released in the era of VHS and you just didn't get extras, period. A "making of" featurette, interviews with Lundgren & Van Damme, and an alternate ending to the movie -- all fairly substantial material, too --not just tacked on afterthoughts. I was surprised to get so much on this DVD for such a great price!
