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.
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 --This text refers to the DVD edition.

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!
Roland Emmerich directs in his typical style with an abundance of special effects though much of the action is done by stunt men and by the two super fit action stars---- they really do earn their money.
Acting wise there is little to be seen but not needed as the pace and action is incredibly fast. J-C does bring some humour to his scenes, and even some pathos by the end of the film.
Great stuff, and it's just my cup of tea!
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!
I bought this hoping they would have sorted out the noise levels, but I still ended up watching the whole film with my finger on the volume control - down during the gunfire so I wasn't deafened, up during the dialogue so I could hear what people were saying - and I still couldn't understand van Damme who gives most of his lines in a whisper. Then there is the picture quality - it would seem to be a transfer off a second hand VHS tape! There are flecks and scratches right through.
Finally the extras - there aren't any. Not even subtitles! My DVD has a documentary, behind the scenes footage and a director's commentary. This Blu-ray is a cheap attempt to cash in, and completely useless. Avoid it!
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.Read more ›
