Universal Soldier: The Return

1

Damning. A road-accident of a film is given better treatment than it deserves but it's not likely you'll care.

One of three unrelated, and equally unnecessary, sequels to the killer-cyborg hi-jinks of the '92 movie with which Roland Emmerich first registered on Hollywood's sonar.

This is cynical, manipulative, idiotic film-making. It's hard to express how bad this film is. Suffice to say Jean-Claude Van Damme is NOT the worst thing about it.

Reachesa peak in the so-bad-it's-funny stakes when Michael Jai White, martial-arts expert and ultimate assimilation of man and machine, declares to his stolid soldiers: "We will act without emotion". Execrable.
