Storyline

Luc Devereaux, the only surviving member of the original Universal Soldier Team. He now works with Dylan Cotner, on a project to create and improve a new Universal Soldier. Their plan is for the Universal soldier or UNISOLS to be controlled by a computer they call SETH. When the government decides to terminate the project, which includes shutting down SETH. SETH, not wanting this to happen, takes steps to prevent this. He first kills Dylan. He then has himself transfered into a body. He then seeks out Luc Devereaux, who is the only person who knows the code that will stop his program from being deleted. So he sends out all the UNISOLS to get him. Luc must try and stay away until SETH program is deleted. But SETH has targeted his daughter as possible leverage. Written by <rcs0411@yahoo.com>

Trivia

The Megadeth song "Crush 'Em" was the temporary entrance theme for wrestler Bill Goldberg, a fan of the band, following his return from a six-month absence from wrestling. The band performed it live for him on July 5, 1999 on WCW Monday Nitro (1995) prior to his grand entrance. Director Mic Rodgers wanted to include the song in the film soundtrack as well. The music video for the song features Goldberg and Jean-Claude Van Damme, with Goldberg joining lead singer Dave Mustaine in the chorus. See more »

Goofs

(at around 43 mins) When the S.E.T.H. brain is implanted into the Super-UniSol, he gives a speech to the rest of the UniSols. During this speech he directs his soldiers to "gather raw materials, so what we may expand our numbers geometrically". Geometrically should have probably been "exponentially". See more »

So bad...its good!
22 August 2000 | by the amorphousmachineSee all my reviews

This is a shocking 'B' grade action movie with lots of bad acting and dialogue. Van Damme does his usual best which aint much, Jai White is good as Seth but the scene stealer is the cheesy but lovable Bill Goldberg. This film is so ridiculously bad that it ends up being funny and quite enjoyable.

If you like cheesy low budget action flicks that doesn't take itself too seriously then this is worth a laugh or two! As a fan of the genre and the fact that i realise this isn't meant to be taken seriously, *** out of *****!
