Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren play archenemies from beyond the grave in this action film. During the Vietnam War, Luc (Van Damme), hoping to be sent home, comes upon blood-crazy Scott (Lundgren), who is starting a one-man genocide program. When Luc tries to stop Scott's carnage, Scott fights back and they end up killing each other. But now the government gets involved, cryogenically freezing their corpses and using their bodies in a secret government project call "UniSols" --turning the dead men into android fighting machines. Luc and Scott are now metallic fighting members of a robot SWAT team. But Luc begin to have flashbacks to the final moments of his life in Vietnam, as does Scott, who recalls that one of his final thoughts was to kill Luc. Meanwhile, a snoopy reporter named Veronica (Ally Walker) stumbles upon the secret of the UniSols, and soon Luc is trying to save both himself and Veronica from the wrath of Scott, who is trying to kill them both. All of the action culminates in a wild chase between a prison bus and a UniSols van, racing around hairpin turns on desert precipices.~Paul Brenner

Great 4k movie.
Owned for 2 weeks when reviewed.
Great movie. It looks amazing in 4k and it also sounds good.
Universal Soldier is such an awesome action movie that is, without question, a guilty pleasure. While Van Damme and Lundgren are obviously never going to win an Oscar for their acting, that’s part of what gives this movie its charm!
With such a creative idea as the basis of the movie, Van Damme and Lundgren’s over the top approach and masculinity makes this an action-lovers must-own Film! Packed from beginning to end with epic action sequences and all the tropes of a great action movie, this is pure enjoyment.
This set also comes loaded with hours of special features including 2 separate commentary tracks and a free digital redemption code.
The bonuses were really great. Both Jean Claude and Dolph were so young looking. I remember when all the soldiers did so many other action movies.
Best was the comedy that was so subtle it seemed adlibbed.
Remaking or re-released movies in 4k are so great, I believe they are better quality than the theaters.
One of my childhood favorites finally comes to the next format, 4K! This action packed extravaganza looks and sounds great in my HT. I'm glad Lionsgate is releasing a lot of their catalog movies on 4K instead of leaving them to rot somewhere, a la Paramount or Disney.
Pick this up if you're a fan of old school action movies, JCVD or Dolph!
If you like the old karate movies, you will definitely love this movie. It is one of Jean Claude’s best movies. Definitely my favorite action star in karate movies as well. Pretty cool person too. Met him at planet Hollywood back in the day. Do your self a favor and buy this one for yourself for Christmas!
