This thick-headed item is miraculously well put together.

One of my favorite Van Damme movies, and now it's his best franchise.
November 3, 2008
It may be little more than an expensive arcade game for overgrown kids, but it moves too fast for critical flak to stick.

Roland Emmerich's best film, and Lundgren's best acting job. Admittedly that ain't saying much in either case, but a fun flick all in all.

Perhaps Van Damme and Lundgren trade blows more easily than lines, but the whole affair is enjoyable in a mindless way.

The action and the campiness barrel along in entertaining counterpoint. You can laugh when you're not absorbed with truck chases.

There's a decent bit of escapism in here somewhere, but Emmerich doesn't possess the finesse to make the material rampage as it should.

There are some pretty decent stunts-especially the one where the two main Uni-Sols go rappelling face-first down Hoover Dam-but they hardly make this $23-million turkey worth your eight bucks.

With no real plot tying them together, the impressively staged big scenes become empty exercises in logistics, while the smaller scenes never develop any momentum.

Leaves behind almost as many derisive laughs as dead bodies.
June 24, 2006
Mostly this is an amalgam of ideas, images and whole scenes lifted from other movies.

Mr. Lundgren, who glowers his way all too convincingly through the role of a rabid bully, may well be the only man in the universe who can make Mr. Van Damme look like an actor.
March 23, 2003
In the end, the main drawback is the brainlessness of the story and the lack of a believable emotional payoff.
