    Wow I couldnt agree more. Watched this directly after watching freelancers with De Niro and 50 cents. Gonna take a break from watching movies for awhile.

      Thanks for commenting, Lucas!

      I’m glad I’m not the only one — I was surprised that this film got average reviews (it’s the highest-rated Universal Soldier movie according to Rotten Tomatoes). I’m a huge action movie fan but I couldn’t stomach this — especially after seeing the far-better Expendables 2 the week before.

      Don’t take a break from watching movies — just make better selections! But perhaps I should take my own advice…

    Yea… I definitely could’ve used some explanation. Hence why I’m here. I read your Blogger and felt at ease seeing I wasn’t the only one. The first movie made me a Van Damme fan as a kid. This was definitely a let down. As well as Regeneration.

      Yar,

      I wish I could explain it for you! It was especially disappointing after Van Damme was so good in Expendables 2… as was Lundgren. Thanks for reading!

    This was awful really, I couldn’t agree with you more. Those scenes where the soldiers got injected seemed more like an attempt to give someone an epileptic seizure. There was one scene i didn’t understand at all; why does magnus inject john and then directly after try and kill him? What is the point? The lack of a proper backstory was really sickening, and i also agree that the soundtrack was terrible, painful even. Great article.

      Tony,
      Thanks for reading! Sorry you had to suffer through the same movie though! I’m a huge fan of action movies — even the “dumb” ones — but I can’t accept it if they simply don’t make sense, as you pointed out. If the movie can’t play by its own rules then it has big problems!
