Dr. Sandra Flemming:
You can't reverse years of hormonal therapy in a day. It's like - rehabilitating a fight dog, then putting it back to fight. This could backfire in a myriad of ways!
Rehabilitation was never part of his design. And as you can see, he's at odds with his nature. He was created to serve a need, and he's not doing that.
Dr. Sandra Flemming:
But now you're just compounding the situation!
Dr. Fleming, you have to ask yourself whether a dog, once it has tasted blood, can ever forget that taste.

After JCVD movie I was pretty curious the next step. Actually, I can not deny the fact I became disappointed having seen action production for Mr Van Damme, rather than art films. But, one for the art, some others for the money... So, liking also Mr Lundgren I was sad not to have new Universal Soldier movie in cinemas. After watching this part, I must say, this is far better than the most was screened this year.
What is the secret?
Good directing, good photographer, good stunts, good timing, good atmosphere. And most of all, Mr Van Damme is great, and acts, and Mr Lundgren, well, just listen how he starts to speak, and his short monologue...
It is a really good thing in the plot that... well, just see it...:)
To sum up, matured actors can make good movies with good director, good script, good editing, good cameramen, and so on. And this happens here.
And the supporting cast? I haven't even recognized it was filmed in Bulgaria, and honestly, you watch a Van Damme film for Him, and this is also a great point of the directing that... :)
So watch it, and you will like it mainly because of Van Damme and Lundgren. :)
