Van Damme Vs. Lundgren - the best one bad-ass sci-fi action film of all time one of my personal third favorite Van Damme flicks

One of my personal favorite action sci-fi films of all time. Universal Soldier is my third favorite the best of Van Damme ever. I love this film to death, I love Jean-Claude Van Damme to death, I have no problems with this film. Hard Target, Cyborg and this one Universal Soldier for me are top 3 best favorite Van Damme films he ever did. I think this movie is great, awesome the best of the Universal Soldier films ever. Luc Deveraux / GR44 is one of Jean-Claude Van Damme's favorite characters. he ever played - his favorite role of mine. Dolph Lundgren is Sgt. Andrew Scott / GR13 in this movie he wear a necklace of human ears. They are both soldiers "Vietnam Vets" who served tour of duty in Vietnam, I love that. Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren as US combat troops who after being killed in action during the Vietnam War, are resurrected in present day as genetically-enhanced super soldiers. Just like in Demolition Man Stallone Vs. Snipes, but in this movie it is Van Damme Vs. Lundgren in a bad-ass sci-fi action film. That is why these 2 action films I mentioned, I grew up with both of them. They are my personal favorite Sci-fi action films that I have grew up with those 2 films. There are reasons why this is my personal favorite action sci-fi flick. In 1997 I was 13 years old and I was hospitalized with pneumonia. There in a hospital I met some of the kids who become my friends and this movie become a major favorite subject. They told me about this movie that Van Damme did how great it is. We always talked about Van Damme and his movie Universal Soldier. Of course I haven't seen this film before, until my friends told me about it. The first time i see the film with excitement I was blown away how great it is. Jean-Claude Van Damme was our favorite subject and so was Jackie Chan. Universal Soldier was big part of me growing up my childhood that is why I love this movie so damn much. I love Sylvester Stallone and Jean-Claude Van Damme to death, I grew up watching them. Sgt. Andrew Scott/GR13 (Dolph Lundgren) uses M60 machine gun during the motel shootout and also in the Prison Bus escape. Lundgren uses M60 machine gun just like Stallone did in First Blood, (that is why I love First Blood to death - it is my personal number 1 action film). Sgt. Andrew Scott is on John Rambo with a machine gun for me. I love the bus escape scene in which Sgt. Andrew Scott throws grenades on the bus and shoots the driver. Luc Deveraux (Jean Claude Van Damme) takes a Smith & Wesson Model 39 pistol from the deceased Prison Bus driver and uses the handgun to shoot GR74 (Ralf Moeller) in the UniSol truck after the UniSol truck rammed the Prison Bus and was pushing it into the Grand Canyon. You have a great explosion in the film real practical effects. When Van Damme breaks the wall you can see it is a stuntman, but it was done for real it was done practical not CGI. The finale fight battle between Van Damme and Lundgren is one of the best fights in the film ever. I love Van Damme spinning kicks, flying kicks to Lundgren. I love the bond between Veronica Roberts and Luc Deveraux, I love how Veronica helped Van Damme finding his home back. I love the story in this movie in which these 2 soldiers kill each other in Vietnam and they are brought back to life 25 years later for a secret government program known as "UniSols"- Both of them are genetically enhanced, unstoppable killing machines without memorie. But when Devreaux's memory starts to return and he escapes the program, a superhuman chase across the country begins. I love the idea about men a woman been chased I love that so much in the film. Roland Emmerich perfectly directed "Universal Soldier", he did a great job. This is my favorite Roland Emmerich movie with Independence Day and Godzila are my favorite Emmerich films. Ally Walker was a fine lady, she did a great job as the second lead role, I love the actress in this movie so much. Universal Soldier is my third personal favorite Van Damme action film one of the best one and it is a fun sci-fi action film I grew up with it. - Highly recommend it for action fans.

An action classic

Muscles from Brussels and the Swedish man-of-war Dolph Lundgren team up as superhuman soldiers brought back to life from Vietnam in this movie. I'm not sure what it is exactly that they do – I wasn't paying attention. But I'm pretty sure it's something about struggling with obeying the orders from their commanders and having flashbacks from their past lives. What I know is that they do fight a lot. They also fight civilians. They even fight each other, and that's when things start to get very entertaining. It is only fair to watch this movie at least once since it has brought us not one, not two, but THREE sequels. What's even more awesome about these sequels is that they are all rated under 3.5 but not by enough votes to get them on the bottom 100 list on IMDb. If you fail in getting on a list like that, you even fail at failing and that is admirable. Universal Soldier is much more well-liked and higher-rated and rightly so. I do not recall who, but another film critic put it best when he pointed to how different Universal Soldiers was from your average science-fiction movie. To summarize this, where most sci-fi movies get to the part where all the complex science needs to be explained by some brilliant professor, Universal Soldiers simply offers the explanation "we hypercharged their bodies to turn dead flesh into living tissue." And that's how dead soldiers were reanimated into superhuman killing machines. Brilliant. There's no pretension – just take it or leave it. I can't find it in my heart to give this movie anything less than a 7 based on what it set out to do. Even though the acting is atrocious, the script is a joke and the dialogue is stupid, it's still a classic in my opinion. It had some intentionally funny moments like when Van Damme was in the diner and ate like ten meals of "today's special" and everyone was staring at him. If you don't find stuff like that funny, you have to watch it strictly tongue-in-cheek and just go for the brainless early-90s style action and cut-rate explosions. 7/10

Before watching this I predicted I would find it overly dated but in the end it held my attention and I watched it till the end. It is a well directed film and VD is awesome in it. The girl is hot but sadly there are no sex scenes.
