In “Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning,” the latest in the “Universal Soldier” feature film series, the universal soldier (UniSol) cloning program is out of control and an army of UniSols has gone AWOL. “Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning” is a story of power, revenge and vindication, as only one man can stop the UniSols from achieving their goal of building a new order – with the UniSols, of course, in control.
When John (Scott Adkins) wakes up from a coma he learns that his wife and daughter were brutally murdered in a terrifying home invasion. John vows to take revenge and kill the man responsible for the attack, Luc Deveraux (Jean-Claude Van Damme). While John tries to piece his reality back together, Deveraux and his band of UniSols are busy testing their strongest warriors in violent life-and-death combat. Pursued by Magnus (Andre Arlovski), a relentless UniSol, John succeeds in getting closer to Deveraux and his rogue army of genetically enhanced warriors. But the closer he gets, the more John begins to doubt everything he previously believed to be true.
“Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning” was directed by John Hyams from a screenplay by Hyams, Doug Magnuson and John Greenhalgh. The action film is scheduled for a limited release on November 30, 2012 by Magnolia Pictures, and also stars Andrei “The Pit Bull” Arlovski and Dolph Lundgren.
