The 'Special Edition' has some nice bonuses including commentaries by the two leads, the alternate ending (why this bizarre ending was filmed is a mystery), a making of documentary, and a brief look at Van Damme and Lundgren's backgrounds. This was perhaps the best featurette because it revealed all sorts of fascinating tidbits about the two stars. For instance, Lundgren went to M.I.T. on a Fulbright Scholarship for chemical engineering! Who would have guessed? In closing, the likable leads coupled with the inexpensive price and entertaining special features definitely make this film a suitable addition to any action fan's arsenal.
The gosh darned government is up to their old tricks again in "Universal Soldier." Back in the Vietnam War the military started a program to develop perfect soldiers, namely soldiers who would follow orders without question, possess no moral scruples, and ones that could tote around an impressive array of firepower. Problem is the soldiers have to die first before the program leaders can do their work. These reanimated troops, the most important of which are Luc (Van Damme) and Sergeant Scott (Lundgren), now ride around in a specially outfitted trailer fulfilling combat missions.Read more ›

I like this movie. Roland Emmerich turns out decent work when he starts with a decent idea.
And this movie is based on an extremely cool idea: a secret government project to use the reanimated corpses of dead soldiers as 'UniSols' ('UNIversal SOLdiers'). They're like killer combat zombies -- equipped to receive commands remotely, impervious to pain, quick to heal, and pretty much unstoppable although they tend to overheat if they stay active for too long.
The plot: Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren were in Viet Nam together, Lundgren wacked out and started killing innocent civilians, Van Damme tried to stop him, and they wound up killing each other. (This is all in the first five minutes of the film.) Their corpses were packed in ice and shipped off to the UniSol project, and after the opening credits roll, they're on an antiterrorist mission as part of a S.W.A.T. team from hell. But a few things start to jog their memories, and it isn't long before the two of them are at it again . . .
You don't have to be a particular fan of the Muscles from Brussels to enjoy the concept here, but Van Damme is actually pretty effective in his role. At any rate the story is briskly paced and about as believable as stuff like this ever gets. It's nicely done if you like this sort of thing (which I do).Read more ›

One of the best movies with Jean-Claude Van Damme. Interesting plot and non stop action. The plot is that deceased soldiers from the Vietnam war are brought back to life as past of... Read morePublished 5 days ago by George A.
I'm a sucker for 80's style action cheese like this.. even though it's early 90's.
And that's all you need to know really. :)
