Jean-Claude Van Damme,
John awakens from a coma to discover his wife and daughter were slaughtered in a brutal home invasion. Haunted by images of the attack, he vows to kill the man responsible: Luc Deveraux. While John tries to piece his reality back together, things get more complicated when he is pursued by a relentless UniSol named Magnus. Meanwhile, Deveraux and surviving UniSol Andrew Scott are preparing to battle anarchy and build a new order ruled by Unisols without government oversight. They are weeding out the weak and constantly testing their strongest warriors in brutal, life-and-death combat. Luc has emerged operating the Unisol Church of Eventualism, taking in wayward Unisols whom the government has been secretly operating as remote-controlled sleeper agents. His mission is to liberate these Unisols from the implanted memories and the lies the government has inserted in them. As John gets closer to Deveraux and the rogue army of genetically enhanced warriors, he discovers more about himself ... Written by

First let me say: 5 is way to low for this movie. Have people not seen really bad movies? OK.
I'm not quite sure how I stumbled upon this action gem.. I guess I was intrigued by Scott Adkins, plus van Damme and Lundgren reprising their roles in this long going franchise. Anyway, I started watching and didn't know if it would be good or not, until the first real action sequence. Oh man, it is really brutal. Like gunshot-wounds-on-bare-skin-brutal. Sets the tone. I like me some brutal action and fighting, and man did I come to the right place!
The movie itself is a little weird. Among the weirdness is a epilepsy- inducing light-show which I actually closed my eyes for a couple of times, to not be hypnotized or brain-fried or whatever. Intense. Anyway, as I said, the movie, the plot, is not super awesome, it has it's good parts, but in the action department is where this movie shines.
The action in this movie is absolutely top notch. The fighting is incredible. It is _so_ brutal! Easy to follow, very well choreographed, and as I said, a little extra brutal.
(sorry for saying brutal so much, I guess it's my word of the day)
Any fan of brutal, bloody, hard hitting fighting, will definitely get their fix here. It also has this long uncut (at least seems uncut) action scene with a lot of killing, and it is simply beautiful.
The rating for this is totally stupid, 5? What? This has hands down, some of the best action this decade. (so far)
