Absolutely terrible.........
20 November 2002 | by DeeanaSee all my reviews

AGH! I was lucky that I never spent money on hiring this out. I caught this about 1am a few months ago and decided to see it cause I had seen the first film and quite liked it. The only problem was I thought Van Damme was in this flick because I had seen a promo for it somewhere, now I know that there is another sequel (Um, how stupid is that anyway!!) This one was done before the Van Damme sequel so they must have decided they wanted a completely different storyline to end the Universal Soldier saga.

Anyway, back to this film. Well, I don't think I can really add much to what the others have said. Everything is just terrible, the acting, man that guy playing Luc is meant to act like he doesn't quite understand somethings, but he comes across as being so incredibly dumb! His fighting was appaling, the dialog was awful.......like I said, everything was shocking. Another thing I found so off-putting was how predictable this movie was. Just by looking at the title you know what its going to be about - and the eventual outcome as well.

If the original actors had been in this it would have been better, but it still wouldn't have made up for the terrible script. By all means please avoid this flick........and it's sequel cause that's just as bad!
