Reynolds Only Bright Spot In Watchable TV Sequel
21 January 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This second sequel to "Universal Soldier" starring Jean Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren is a made for TV movie starring Matt Battaglia and Burt Reynolds (using an Irish accent) that was made side by side with its prequel "Universal Soldier 2: Brothers In Arms" with the aim of leading to a TV show (that never happened)

Matt Battaglia continues in the Van Damme role and likewise Chandra West in the Ally Walker role.

Burt has a lot more to do this time around, which automatically raises the quality of this instalment, although there is still an over use of slow motion.

There are some impressive is set pieces and well directed action scenes however a bit of dodgy acting in certain quarters ruin what could have been an average TV movie.

I think had he been able to anticipate the success of "Boogie Nights" and his subsequent Oscar nomination for his performance, he may have been a bit more picky about what roles he was taking, and bided his time waiting for a quality script to keep the momentum of his comeback going. However his ongoing financial worries at this time, probably dictated he grabbed what ever work was offered to him as he made seven movies in both 1997 and 1999.
