Reviews

From Amazon.co.uk

Universal Soldier offered director Roland Emmerich and screenwriter Dean Devlin their first venture before going on to make a mountain of money as the creators of Independence Day and Godzilla. Teaming up for this action flick disguised as a science fiction thriller, muscle hunks Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren play embattled Vietnam soldiers who kill each other in combat. They are subsequently revived 25 years later as semi-android "UniSols" in a high-tech army of the near future. Their memories were supposedly wiped clean, but flashbacks occur to remind them of their bitter hatred (Lundgren committed wartime atrocities; Van Damme had tried to stop him) and the warriors resume their tenacious battle while a journalist (Ally Walker) uncovers the truth about the secret UniSol program. With energy to spare, the standard action sequences are adequate for anyone with a short attention span. And besides, with Van Damme and Lundgren in the lead roles, who needs dialogue? --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com

Product Description

Luc Devereux (Jean-Claude Van Damme) and Andrew Scott (Dolph Lundgren) are soldiers who were killed in action in Vietnam, then frozen and resurrected as robotic killing machines. They form part of an elite corps of anti-terrorist androids, but when they are sent to murder investigative reporter Veronica Roberts (Ally Walker), Devereaux rebels and refuses to comply with his orders.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Van Damage!!!!! 11 Nov 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is going to be alot of people's guilty pleasure. If you like your action fast and violent then this movie is definately for you. Admittedly not the best script or acting but in action terms there are few films that will surpass this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Soldiers 4 April 2001
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Dead bodies are used to create the ultimate soldiers, and that is exactly what this movie is about. After being killed in Vietnam, Luc Devreaux (Van Damme) is genetically reanimated as the ultimate killing machine, GR44.
However, when things go wrong, GR13 (Dolph Lundgren) becomes a search and destroy unit tracking down GR44. Universal Soldier is a superbly directed action thriller that keeps up the pace and tension throughout.
No matter what type of movie you prefer, this will definitely appeal to you, and with the enhancement of DVD technology, this movie really kicks!

2.0 out of 5 stars US region free blu ray is better 11 Nov 2012
By Benson
Format:Blu-ray
Im not going into the details about the film this is about the different Blu ray versions available. The Lionsgate region free release from the US is much better than this version released in the UK. Lionsgates Blu ray has better picture quality and has special features, the UK blu ray has no special features. Fans should go for the US version and you can buy it on Amazon from marketplace traders.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the most underrated movies of the 90's!! 27 Nov 2002
Format:DVD
This movie was an extremely clever idea, soldiers who were killed in vietnam and were then turned into super soldiers called unisols, short for universal soldiers. Honestly, who would be better for the large menacing bad guy named sgt. Andrew Scott, Dolph at a good 6"5 and muscle bound more than fitted the build, and van damme also done an excellent job of playing the shy good guy, the plot is great the action is excellent and the acting aint too bad either.
This movie is one of the best action movies that I personally have ever seen!. An absolute hoot for action fans and also a good film for people who respect decent films.
Dolph is excellent, van damme is excellent and with roland emmerich directing, how can you possibly go wrong, BUY THIS MOVIE NOW!!!!. 5/5, 10/10 you cant go wrong with this one!

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Blu-Ray 3 Mar 2009
Format:Blu-ray
Luc Devreaux (Jeans-Claude Van Damme) and Sgt. Andrew Scott (Dolph Lundgren) are American soldiers fighting in Vietnam. The two end up killing each other in a fight. 25 years later a reporter played by Ally Walker finds out that they have been brought back to life with no memory of their past and now are part of a secret government program called Universal Soldiers (Unisols). when Luc Devreaux's memory's start to come back he escapes with the help of Walker only to be chased across the country by Sgt scott. If you have a Blu-Ray player and you like Van Damme or Lundgren then this is a must.

4.0 out of 5 stars 90's Van Damme, Lungdren Classic 10 Jan 2014
By Timelord007 TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
Positive.
1)Jean Claude Van Damme & Dolph Lungdren as Luc Devereux & Andrew Scott at the top of there game, There final fight truly delivers.
2)Great action scenes directed by Roland Emmerich.

Negative.
I'd have liked a bit more of Van Damme fighting the other Uni-sols.

Dvd Info.
Please note Amazon has got the Running time wrong it is infact 99 minutes approx not 79 minutes as stated, Trailer, Behind the scenes making of documentary.

Trivia.
1)This is the first of 4 movie appearances to feature both Jean Claude Van Damme & Dolph Lungdren the other film's are the decent Universal Soldier Regeneration,The Awful Universal Soldier Day Of Reckoning & above average Expendables 2.
2)The special edition version features an alternative ending which i feel wouldn't have suited the movie's climax & would've just complicated the plot somewhat.

Alternative Ending.
Deveraux's mum is shot to death by Andrew Scott & Deveraux doesn't use the muscle enhancers in the final fight with Scott.

After grinding up Andrew Scott in the films original climax Deveraux is then shot by his dad & Doctor Gregor then arrives & has his men shot Deveraux to death before the police & news crew arrive with Veronica Robert's.
Dousing Deveraux with fire extinguishers to help his cell regeneration, Doctor Gregor & his men are then arrested as Deveraux finds out his parents weren't his real parents it was all a set up by Doctor Gregor to snare out Deveraux & Scott.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quick Reviews! 6 Nov 2013
By carlosnightman VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Definitely a contender for Van Damme's and Lundgren's best, Universal Soldier is one of the best action movies of the early nineties, with plenty of explosive stunts, fights, a decent story, some fine acting, and lots of great dialogue. In the wake of Terminator 2 this, and most sci-fi action movies look inferior, but still this is a great watch for action fans, and may even please a few non-fans as a good slice of entertainment, or nostalgia. It's almost as if the 80s never went away.

Van Damme stars as Luc Deveraux, a marine in 'Nam. His superior is Andrew Scott, played with menace by Lundgren. Their team stumbles upon a village in 'Nam where Scott goes on a kill crazy rampage, wiping out men, women, and kids, and when Luc tries to stop him, they kill each other. Flash forward to the nineties and the US Army has managed to save and restore both Luc and Scott, as well as their team thanks to some futuristic Robocop nonsense. They are now part man, part computer - easy to control soldiers with a much higher skill and strength rate than any human could have. The Army has created this race of Super-Soldiers to undertake special missions, and they have a flawless success rate.

Veronica Roberts is a snoopy reporter who wants to follow the mysterious team, but can never get close. The soldiers are autonomous, doing whatever they are told, and with no memory of their past lives. However, as all computers inevitably turn against their masters, Luc and Scott begin to have flashbacks. Soon Scott kills Veronica's cameraman, while Luc saves her life, becoming a renegade from his group, from the military, from the Government. He begins to remember everything, his human part taking over, while Scott takes control of his team with the sole objective of killing Luc and Veronica.
