Jean-Claude Van Damme doesn't make very many good "movies". That is, unless you're in the mood for a total mindless action picture. That's pretty much what UNIVERSAL SOLDIER is, a total mindless action movie. The movie has a semi-believable plot and Van Damme gives on of the best performances of his career (he sort-of seems like he is talking). There aren't many one on one fighting scenes, but there is tons of action.

Wiki

Director Roland Emmerich (Independence Day)fortunately brings some crackle to this otherwise unexciting sci-fi drama about two once-dead, biologically-regenerated soldiers (Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren) who turn against one another when Van Damme's character has memories of his previous life. Emmerich is typically only as good as his scripts, and this one is pretty flat. The two stars do exactly what you'd expect them to do and nothing more.--Tom Keogh
