Jean-Claude Van Damme and Scott Adkins duke it out in Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning

Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning

Directed by John Hyams

Written by John Hyams, Doug Magnuson and Jon Greenhalgh

USA, 2012

Although it looks like a generic action movie on paper, Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning is actually a lot messier on screen, both physically and stylistically. Combining Gaspar Noé-style strobe light disorientation and long takes with David Cronenberg-inspired body wreckage, the movie looks and feels like a departure from the normal action movie affair; yet, at its heart, Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning is still fairly generic.

The story centers on John (Scott Adkins), a man recovering from a coma and the brutal deaths of his wife and daughter. With a vivid picture of the killer, Luc Deveraux (Jean-Claude Van Damme), in his mind, John tries to figure out what exactly happened and why. »
