Here is a fool writing this review, because I watched the trailer for this movie a long time ago and was quietly excited about it. The slick artwork for a VOD movie also further stewed up some promise. Those hopes faded when people started speaking about how awful the film is, but it wasn’t until I watched it myself that I realized just how bad it is. It’s the fifth team up for Jean Claude Van Damme ...

I remember that phase Sylvester Stallone went through about ten years ago. For so long he’d been maligned by the hip mainstream and threw away his inhibitions and said; ‘Fuck it, I’m going to do my own thing and have fun with my old style stuff’, starting with the ultra violent Rambo, but then really kicking off a party by announcing himself and Jason Statham in a new movie.

To its credit, this follow-up succeeded about as well as could be reasonably expected, pulling in over $300 million at the global box office (against its reported $100M production budget) and ...

Universal Soldier: A Day of Reckoning is a mean and nasty psychological thriller with a streak of incredible fight scenes running up its back. Its directed by John Hyams, who gave life back to the franchise with Universal Soldier: Regeneration. That film was possibly the most effective DTV ever, a rough yet effective action movie where a skilled director makes the best out of a low budget. Here, Hyams returns with a larger budget and American ...
