It has been a little while since we did something like this here. Last time (Post Apocalyptic Week) was a lot of fun so we are going to do it again. This time the week’s reviews will focus on the Universal Soldier franchise. The Universal Soldier franchise is one of my personal favorites. It has consistently featured two all-time greats in Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren and has added a number of other action movie greats like Scott Adkins and Michael Jai White plus stars from the world of boxing, wrestling and MMA in Roy Jones Jr., Bill Goldberg, Mike Pyle and Andrei Arlovski. This week will feature reviews of all the movies in the franchise plus a few fun surprises. The first review will be up later today. I will collect all the reviews here in case anybody happens to miss one:
- Universal Soldier
- Universal Soldier II: Brothers in Arms
- Universal Soldier III: Unfinished Business
- Universal Soldier: The Return
- Universal Soldier: Regeneration
- Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning – originally reviewed on May 10, 2013
Completely unrelated but similarly named:

I’d love to participate (watch the movies, read your reviews). Are you watching the movies in order?
Yep! I had already posted Day of Reckoning though so I won’t be rewatching that.
Im curious if this franchise will continue or if it’s over? I prefer the more fun action instalments like the first two. The last two are way too serious and forgot that they were made famous by its stars Van damme and Lundgren who take a back seat. Looking forward to reading your thoughts.
I’m curious if it will continue too. I kinda hope it does.
The two most recent sequels are certainly a change of pace from the first two movies. I definitely like them a lot… just in a slightly different way.
