Mini Retro Review: Universal Soldier II: Brothers In Arms (1998) #badmovies

Universal Soldier II: Brothers In Arms
1998
Direct-to-Video



Less-than-stellar unofficial and straight to video sequel to 1992's modest sci-fi action flick starring Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren sees Matt Battaglia and a horrible peroxide blond, Jeff Wincott. Former (American) footballer- turned- actor Battaglia has the looks and muscles for an action movie star, yet little charisma & comes across as stiff in his performance (although whether that was intentional or not, I don't know). The action is bland, so routine, unmemorable and nothing new that you haven't seen elsewhere and the story is throwaway and so disposable. Wincott doesn't get to display his martial arts skills and in Brothers In Arms, it's apparent that this Canadian produced offering is nothing more than a pilot for a proposed Universal Soldier TV series, - which didn't materialise, as opposed to a straightforward proper follow-up film. That & it's a below mediocre one too.


Is It Worth Watching?

Not really
