There's really no excuse for this unhappy return!
January 1, 2000
The video-game level plot can be summarized as: Fight. Shoot. Kill. The compassionless violence has humans being slaughtered three at a clip.

quickly made film, with uninspired direction, no unique purpose, populated with safe stunts and lots of shooting.

Let's hope, for [Van Damme's] sake, that his own return is not riding on this one.

What separates this one from all his rest? Not much.
January 1, 2000
A cheapo piece of claptrap.

From the opening chase to the closing explosions this one follows the action movie formula to the letter.

Once again, Van Damme has made a truly horrendous movie that's not even worth watching for the mindless action.
Full Review | Original Score: 0/4

Jean-Claude's best days are behind him. Way behind him.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
January 1, 2000
The Muscles from Brussels mouths dialogue that wouldn't challenge a bivalve - and in an accent that makes Stallone sound like a master of elocution.

Universal Soldier is nothing for anyone to be proud of, on either side of the screen.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

[A] gratuitously violent film.

January 1, 2000
Further proof that the international star once destined to challenge Schwarzenegger and Stallone at the box office is again stuck scraping the bottom of the action-movie barrel.
January 1, 2000
It's gotten to the point where most action fans -- heck, most 4-year-olds -- could write a script like this!
January 1, 2000
Stay far, far away from this laughably bad sci-fi action flick!
January 1, 2000
What reads brutal and exhilarating in Blade and The Matrix is pure slapstick in this muddy-looking movie.
