Private Luc Deveraux and his sadistic sergeant, Andrew Scott, got killed in Vietnam. The army uses their bodies for a secret project - reanimating dead soldiers as deadly obedient cyborgs. However, their memories come back too.
Jean-Claude Van Damme,
With stolen top-secret technology, terrorists have created a next-generation Universal Soldier - an elite fighter genetically altered into a programmable killing machine. With this "UniSol" (Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Andrei "The Pit Bull" Arlovski) leading the way, they seize the crippled Chernobyl nuclear reactor, threatening to unleash a lethal radioactive cloud. The only one who can stop them is Luc Deveraux (Jean-Claude Van Damme), a UniSol who's been decommissioned for years. Reactivated and retrained, Deveraux must make a full-out assault on the heavily armed fortress. But inside, he'll discover not one but two of these virtually indestructible warriors. Andrew Scott (Dolph Lundgren), Deveraux's vicious UniSol enemy from the original Universal Soldier, has been secretly reanimated and upgraded. Now, these elite fighters are locked, loaded and programmed to kill; and the fate of millions hinges on this high-action showdown. Written by

(at around 1h 13 mins) When the enemy soldier is 'spared' by Luc and promptly turns and jumps out of the window behind him, the window can be seen being blown out from the bottom left and right prematurely. See more »
[after Scott kills Commander Topov]
Okay. Very good. That's a good boy. We have to go now. You have to finish your job. Then we'll go.
[Scott doesn't respond]
Hmm? The children.
[Staring at his reflection in a blood-stained mirror]
Can I ask you a question?
No, you cannot.
You often contemplate... the complexity of life?
Hey, it's not for you to ask questions, understand?
[Scott stands up and turns to face Colin, who looks slightly worried]
Yes or no?

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. :)
