Here's some truth: I have never seen a Universal Soldier movie. But that didn't stop me from enjoying this latest installment in the Unisol franchise.
John remembers his familly and the face of the man that killed them. And that's it. When he wakes up in hospital, all he has is a strong desire for vengeance--a driving need to find the man who murdered his wife and daughter. John's vengeance quest leads him down a dark road lined with mystery. Pursued by Magnus, a Unisol, and haunted by memories of happier times, John kicks and punches his way to truth and revenge.
I have it on good authority that Day of Reckoning breaks away from the recent trend of Unisol movies, taking itself and its subject matter seriously. The film opens with child murder, features no less three brutal fight scenes, and any number of people are shotgunned to death. The film pulls no punches and makes no apologies for its violence.
