Here's the trailer for "Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning," the latest installment of the cheesetastic action series featuring Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren as two genetically altered super soldiers. While it's good to see Van Damme and Lundgren have returned, it appears English-born martial artist star Scott Adkins has taken the lead in this action-packed revenge story about a man's mission to find out the person who's responsible for his family's death, which somehow involves a renegade troop of super soldiers.
This fourth film in the series comes from director John Hyams, who helmed the last "Universal Soldier" movie. And unlike that previous film, this one will have a limited theatrical release starting on November 30th. Of course, this will be after the movie debuts on iTunes / VOD on October 25th.
John (Scott Adkins) wakes up from a coma to discover his wife and daughter were slaughtered in a brutal home invasion. Haunted by images of the attack, he vows to kill the man responsible, Luc Deveraux (Jean-Claude Van Damme). While John tries to piece his reality back together, things get more complicated when he is pursued by a relentless UniSol (Andrei Arlovski). As John gets closer to Deveraux and the rouge army of genetically enhanced warriors led by back-from-the-dead leader Andrew Scott (Dolph Lundgren), John discovers more about himself and begins to call into question everything he believed to be true.
