Behold! The new era of wrinkly old action stars rehashing previous hits for a fleeting sense of fame that left them long ago is upon us, and it keeps rearing its ugly geriatric head no matter what we do. I guess we have Sylvester Stallone to thank for that – at least his forays into well worn territory with “Rambo” and “Rocky Balboa” were halfway heartfelt. By the time he made it to “The Expendables” and its even more lackluster sequel, it seemed like he wanted to keep on going just so he could have an excuse to keep taking steroids. The same goes for Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren, two craggy-faced former beefcakes who made appearances in “The Expendables” and “The Expendables 2” who barely show up in “Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning,” the new incomprehensible, ultra-violent and ultra-unlikable chapter of the Universal Soldier…saga(?).
