What with Expendables Week going on right now, it seems worthwhile to look at Universal Solder: Day of Reckoning. This fourth film in the series stars a trio of Expendables 2 badasses: Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren, and Scott Adkins. This is the first of the Universal Soldier films done in 3D, meaning you get thrice the Van Damme-age.
Here’s what Lundgren said about Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning on Twitter:
John Hyams had written a very interesting character for me in the 3D version of the “Universal Soldier” franchise, which lured me back from the dead for a second time. Sgt. Scott is the spiritual leader of a new order of government-manipulated soldiers who now are back in control of their minds and heading for world domination. Especially a 5-page sermon to the troops with a ‘Marc Anthony/General Patton’ feel was a real challenge to rehearse and shoot.
Admittedly, I haven’t kept up with this franchise since the first film hit VHS. I know pro-wrestler Goldberg was in the first sequel, but that’s about it. The addition of Adkins has me interested since he does quality fights. Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning does a leaping splits-kick into theaters on November 30th.
