Utter garbage
16 May 2014 | by (Lincolnshire, UK) – See all my reviews

This abysmal franchise lumbers onwards with a TV movie, generally regarded as the 'unofficial' continuation of the original film while the theatrical release 'Universal Soldier: The Return' represents the true sequel. What? Who cares?

The upside: no Devlin and no Emmerich. The downside: this is every bit as atrocious as the first one. Director Jeff Woolnough seems to be completely unaware that he's a hack, nicking techniques from John Woo, Scorcese, Kubrick, beer ads and every fifth-rate action director going in an attempt to look competent. There's even a snippet of Strauss over a slo-mo shot of an exploding truck. Maybe people who watch nothing but straight-to-video actioners will think this is innovative in some way, but it's not. It's shite.

The plotting and dialogue is excruciatingly dimwitted, lacks anything resembling actual human interaction, and cuts corners all over the place in order to get from one end of the film to the other. There's not a single redeeming feature to be found in this empty rustbucket.
