User Reviews

Good storyline, but everything else could have been better.
20 July 1999 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

I was excited to see there was a Universal Soldier sequel, but I was shocked to see how badly this film was made. Where to start? First of all the acting. Simple Awful. Bad Jokes and poorly acted out characters. Luc's fill in character is nothing compared to Van Damme, and speaks like a country bumpkin. I think the writers of this movie forgot an important part of continuity from the original film - Luc and his parents are French. Second the fight scenes and action. I felt like I was watching a Stone Cold Steve Austin Wrestling match. It's that bloody and it seems like the violence is there just for the sake of being there. The music that accompanies the fight scenes isn't so great either, which leads onto my next point. The selection of music for this film is quite diverse. One minute you think you're watching Forrest Gump and the next you'll think of Nice Inch Nails. Some of the music took away from the suspense and seriousness of certain scenes as well, and was just out of place. All in all, the music was inappropriate for this movie.

Finally, I'd like to close and say that the storyline had a couple of things going for it, such as Luc's older brother returning - this was a very good twist, but as for the rest of the film, it was simply woeful. You best be spending money on the DVD of the original Van Damme film that hit the cinemas.
