Now here’s a movie I’m looking forward to despite the fact I know it’s going to be really hokey. Why? Simple answer is because it reminds of the action movies I watched in the 80’s. The era that Muscle & Fitness called the ultimate action hero time. I’m talking some Universal Soldier: Regeneration.
Jean-Claude Van Damme is back to face off against Dolph Lundgren once again, the man who hit Sly so hard during Rocky IV that he ended up in the hospital. This film is heading straight to video, but I don’t care I’m still going to watch it.
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 originalUniversal 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.
