FAQs

  • Not at all. Popular misconception is that Universal Soldiers are cyborgs. They are revived organisms, once dead and now 100% alive again. The regeneration process which makes them alive also affects their cellular/metabolic pattern to the point they can overheat and collapse if not properly refrigerated. Also, the process grants them with superhuman-like enhanced physical abilities like strength, speed and resistance to pain and damage. Edit (Coming Soon)

  • Yes. According to the director, Day of Reckoning is set several years after the events of Universal Soldier: Regeneration (2009). Both the sequels follow the first 1992 feature film but overlook Universal Soldier: The Return (1999). The Return is still in continuity, but largely ignored (events not mentioned). Edit (Coming Soon)

  • No. The TV spin-off sequels Universal Soldier II: Brothers In Arms (1998) and Universal Soldier III: Unfinished Business (1999) were jointly produced for Showtime and The Movie Channel as a miniseries meant as a backdoor pilot for a TV series. Edit (Coming Soon)

  • They aren't. He appears old because he is old. UniSols age like common beings. Cryogenized bodies from sixties were used to create UniSols, that's why Luc Deveraux (Jean-Claude Van Damme) died in 1969 and was resuscitated in the early nineties as Universal Soldier. UniSols cannot feel pain, but they can be hurt, they age and most importantly they can be killed. Edit (Coming Soon)

  • Yes, from August 21st to September 13th it was screened in RealD 3D in seven big cities in Germany. Magnet Releasing distributed this film on-demand in theaters. Edit (Coming Soon)

  • The uncensored version of the film got the infamous NC-17 rating by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), which is rare in the action sector anyway and especially in the last few years. Though Hyams himself declared that he was contractually obligated to deliver an R-rated version (for brutal bloody violence throughout, strong sexual content, graphic nudity, and language) for the theatrical release, he didn't rest to mention in interviews that he thinks of the uncensored, harder version as the superior one. The American DVD and Blu-ray disc does not contain the NC-17 version. Instead, they contain the R-rated cut which was previously shown in cinemas and on-demand. All the more pleasant is the fact that this won't be a worldwide case since the Austrian Blu-ray/DVDs do contain the NC-17 version. The latter runs approximately 33 seconds longer than the R-rated version. The German Blu-ray/DVD available at Amazon.de, is censored for violence for several minutes. The fully uncut NC-17 cut can be bought on Blu-ray/DVD here. The UK and Canadian Blu-ray/DVD has also the uncut NC-17 version. Edit (Coming Soon)
