Universal Soldier: Day Of Reckoning

Although I've never watched the movie Universal Soldier made popular by Jean-Claude Van Damme before, but I know what's the story about.

This time, the lead actor of the movie is Scott Adkins as John. Started off with him awaken by his little daughter telling him that there's monsters in the kitchen. John stumbles his way and freshens up a bit with water and heads on to check around, still groggy. Camera is in perspective of what John is seeing. When he got to the kitchen, there's 3 masked men there and they start beating the crap out of him. And later, his made to watch Luc Deveraux unmasked and kills his family.

He wakes up in hospital with a detective questioning him. The rest of the plotline just seems to be a blur to me. :/

Seriously, even though I've seen the entire movie, I still have no clue what it's about.

Ok before I go any further, I can't say what's the story about without telling the whole full picture, so I guess I'll have to put a SPOILER ALERT ENSUES HERE!!!!

Just the fact that John is actually a Universal Soldier created just about few weeks back and is implanted with the memories of his family being killed to drive him his violent tendencies.

After the hospital, John stumbles around aimlessly trying to find out who he actually is and keeps coming across with people and footage of him doing things which he don't remember doing nor would seem like he would do such a thing. Along with that, he's also being pursued by another Universal Soldier out to kill him.

John later found out that there's another of him and that he was the one responsible on all the things that's done which people thought was John. Later John set out to kill Luc Deveraux.

Okay, so I still don't have a clear picture on what on earth is the movie about and what went on. All I know very well is that it's not really a good movie. It's pretty much boring and the much gory parts are mostly censored which those parts are the only thing that keeps the movie nice. Consider the fact that it's censored, it's not much to look forward to at the movies. Hence, I give it 2 stars out of 5.

Totally agree with ur review on this movie! Many gory scenes.

That's the point of Universal Soldier and it does keep it entertaining too. But there's way too few action scenes for a movie like this and a confusing plotline making it terrible.

Too many censors! =( Hope TED is not like this

Without the censorship, I still feel that the movie wouldn't be good. I believe Ted will have a lot of censorship.

Expected a lot, after having watched the Entire Flicks of Universal Soldier in the past. All seems too dramatic than a action flick
