Universal Soldier Luc Deveraux is back. Jean-Claude Van Damme gallantly attempts to resurrect interest in his tepid career with this action-riddled roller-coaster ride. Set in the not-too-distant future, Deveraux has been employed by the government to oversee the new UniSol project. What is UniSol? It's a military plan to turn dead soldiers into invincible fighting machines (see the first Univeral Soldier for more details). It's also the scheme that went horribly wrong when the soldiers turned psycho, killing the scientists who created them. Not deterred by this early setback, the government replicates the project. This time they figure that they can control the soldiers through a supercomputer called SETH (kind of like HAL in 2001, but smarter). But, as we all know, machines frequently break down. Pretty soon the computer comes to the conclusion that it's superior to humans and therefore it must destroy them. Uh oh.

Van Damme to the rescue. The muscles from Brussels heroically leap into action confronting the dangerous soldiers led by Bill (WCW) Goldberg and Michael Jai White (last seen in Spawn). The action is impressive and the stunts are engrossing. Goldberg is charismatic as the cartoonish villain who sneers and snouts while muttering macho things like, "I'm gonna kill that guy." Van Damme looks more at home in a production that he is not directing, and for once he lets his fists do the talking. Ironically, the movie is missing the gloss and big-budget pathos of its predecessor (created by Dean Devlin and Roland Emmerich), making the original decidedly better. --Jeremy Storey

2.0 out of 5 stars Please read Feb. 20 2008
By Eddy B
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The movie is definately rated two stars, but more important is the info below:
Once again from Amazon.ca I received a Full Screen copy even
though they have it listed as a 'Widescreen/Full Screen' version twice on their website.
This has been happening way too often when I order directly from Amazon.ca!
To Amazon.ca, please send what you describe, or upate your site accordingly.
This is the fourth time in recent months and I'm getting really pissed off!
You waste my time by wanting me to print out a return label etc. I'm losing my trust in Amazon.ca as a source for DVDs!

4.0 out of 5 stars 3 1/2 stars for this underrated sequel June 6 2010
By Robert Badgley TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Universal Soldier-The Return(released August/99)is certainly an underrated sequel to the first Universal Soldier.The film is filled with lots of action and suspense mixed with a nice on going sub plot concerning the value of family and love.Van Damme is certainly on top of his acting game in this one.
The story concerns the Uni-sol project and Luc Deveraux(Van Damme)who this time around is a consultant and trainer for the project.His wife has passed on and he is a single father who has one daughter Hillary(Karis Bryant)who he dotes over lovingly.One day the overseeing General Radford(Danile Von Bargon)informs the project team that he has to pull the plug on the project.It has become a liability and the government won't stand for anymore mishaps.SETH,the artificial intelligence that runs the computer systems including commanding the Uni-sols themselves,decides this is against protocol and initiates a defensive posture.He takes over total control of all systems and instructs the soldiers to clear the facility in preparations for a total assault on the outside world.
Luc possesses the code which would be able to terminate SETH and with his help the General tries repeatedly to shut things down but without success;with much loss of military life in the process.In the meantime SETH has gone from a computer based intelligence into a human host(Michael Jai White).He also kidnaps Luc's daughter from her hospital bed and holds her as a bargaining chip.In the finale of the film Luc and SETH battle toe to toe until Luc manages to turn on the cryo freezing unit which turns SETH into a human popsicle;this in turn enables Luc to give one last high flying kick which disintegrates SETH into pieces.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad........But May 26 2004
Format:DVD
At Most I enjoyed this movie, Bill Goldberg ( Romeo,UniSoldier) at his Grid Iron tackling Best, But the movie was spoilt by one of the female leads,(The TV News Anchor ) by her rather corny over-acting, But was more " into it " in the ending sequences, The movie Plot at the end of the movie got lost in hyper drive, as the 2nd female lead that was looking after Luc Deveraux's Daughter at the hospital and suddenly appeared at the end of the movie as a uni soldier herself, Poor Plot line there :

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty decent sequel Nov. 26 2003
Format:DVD
Having seen the first movie, and finding it a little tame in comparison with others, I purchased this DVD expecting more of the same, and was impressed by the good performance that Jean-Claude Van Damme brought. Bill Goldberg (as UNISOL Romeo) provided some scene-stealing moments both humorous and a little exciting. Although the plot is a little thin, and some back-story was incomplete(e.g. Devereaux's late wife), I thought this sequel was better than the original.

4.0 out of 5 stars very entertaining movie July 3 2003
Format:DVD
I cannot believe this movie is getting such low reviews as i enjoyed it as did everyone that i know did aswell.
this movie was mostly fast paced action and excellent fight scenes with scary villans, not much about the story as the first one but it was also funny like when van-damme says "i'm leaving, no violence" then he beats the beats the bouncers up. overall the movie was very entertaining and i think the flaws was the movie's lower budget and lack of creative stunts & locations. but if your a van-damma or action movie fan you will enjoy it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Why did they bother..... April 23 2003
By Ollie
Format:DVD
I am a Van Damme fan and still hold out for the day when he makes a return to the big screen. I bought this recently and now wish I hadn't. Unfortunatly with this entry it seems Van Damme has decided to self-destruct what remains of his career. I hope he made this during his drug addiction years, if not, then I think he has received one to many kicks to the head and should consult a doctor. Very predictable throughout which by no means is a bad thing if only the film was enjoyable and didn't treat its audience as if they were 10 year olds. Logic seems to have been thrown out the window along with the two page script. Rent this before parting with your hard earned cash if only to see the fight scene in the lapdancing club! Almost as bad as Double Team, almost!! Van Damme has shown some glimmer of hope with Desert Heat and Replicant but I think the good old days of Kickboxer, Timecop, Universal Soldier and Sudden Death are long over.
