Universal Soldier: Regeneration

Universal Soldier: Regeneration

John Hyams (2009)

18 Certificate


Our Score
Jean-Claude Van Damme returns to one of his best-known roles in this ambitious reboot of the sci-fi action franchise. Ageing yet agile, he demonstrates he's still got the moves, as his reanimated warrior Luc Deveraux is forcibly re-commissioned to help stop stereotypical terrorists from blowing up the crippled Chernobyl nuclear plant. The film opens impressively with an adrenaline-rush car chase, before settling into routine shoot 'em up mode, accompanied by gritty visuals and a pounding soundtrack. It's technically accomplished but narratively flimsy, making the increasingly illogical events feel like padding in preparation for the final act's main attraction: a slugfest between Van Damme and his original Universal Soldier nemesis, Dolph Lundgren.
