  3. kris's rating of the film Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning

    I liked this. Its always nice to be surprised how good a film is, rather then to expect it to be good.

  4. HKFanatic's rating of the film Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning

    Repeat viewings only serve to enhance this film's sobering power; in fact, they may be something of a necessity in order to parse out the labyrinthian plot. Against expectations, director John Hyams refashions the "Universal Soldier" series into a study of toxic masculinity. Drawing influence from body horror and filmmakers like David Lynch, the movie is not so much an exercise in brutality as an examination of it.

  6. CJ Roy's rating of the film Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning

    This is going to be a flagship film for us genre buffs, just wait. Hyams is the next Holy Idol of genre cinema.

  8. ZD KH's rating of the film Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning

    one of the most interesting and physical films i have seen in years. the use of the films experimental elements is masterful. he reaches out and touches his audience in ways that reflect the emotional reality of his characters. the narrative is a compelling follow up from his first Universal. He is free from the first films constructs to tell the story he needs to, a very brave move. could be a stunning trilogy.

  9. Robert Karol's rating of the film Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning

    A Lynchian approach to your generic sci-fi actioner, while the cinematographer and DP seem to take their stylistic notes from the Archers and video games. Highly recommended, in other words.

  10. James's rating of the film Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning

    How did this happen? This movie owns. Do not see if epileptic.

  11. Xesus Duarte Patiño Rumbo's rating of the film Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning

    Heart of darkness + David Lynch + esteroids = WOW! Great enjoyable action movie. And includes some lovely homages.

  12. Cbarky99's rating of the film Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning

    Universal Soldier: Heart of Darkness

  13. Movie Blabber's rating of the film Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning

    This is probably the definition of "action horror", a movie with the intensity of an action movie and the stomach-churning traits of a slasher flick.

  14. Zach Closs's rating of the film Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning

    Appropriately, Hyams explores violence the way more conventional filmmakers explore drugs. “Reckoning” is hallucinatory; fuzzy and disorienting – it portrays brutality not only as Adkins' tool to relinquish responsibility, but as the audience's addiction. The apathetic fashion in which a family is slaughtered to give Adkins fuel mirrors our own carefree position as the viewer.

  15. hastapura's rating of the film Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning

    Grim and surprisingly outre, this is the real shit. Creative and stark fight sequences - the Lundgren fight is a wince-inducing highlight - mesh with off-kilter, bleak bits of story. For fans of the franchise I imagine the story wanders too far into metaphor as opposed to continuity, but I had no problems.

  16. Fırat Ataç's rating of the film Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning

    Van Damme wearing face paint for some strange, unexplained reason.

  17. Tyler Aikens's rating of the film Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning

    It was awful, but goddammit, was it ever intriguing. It was almost like Gaspar Noe directed a Universal Soldier movie, at times. Van Damme's going to make a huge comeback in 2013.

  18. Polyglot's rating of the film Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning

    THE BEST ACTION MOVIE OF 2012. THE BEST JEAN-CLAUDE VAN DAMME MOVIE OF HIS CAREER.

  19. Zachary W's rating of the film Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning

    If seeing Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning is not a life-or-death matter for you, then you are not a vulgar auteurist. Plain and simple.

  21. Jake Cole's rating of the film Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning

    When the military's away, the clones will play. Light blazes out from emission sources but otherwise the world looks as spartan as the warriors who have been unleashed in it, and the violence within it is as gruesome and repulsive as it is perfectly choreographed. Maybe this is why action no longer uses long takes: a tracking shot is a moral act, as they say, and DoR turns even its most impressive carnage into dread.
