Surprised by other peoples low scores!

Summary: thought the film was much better than all the reviews say. i was dreading what was coming, but the film was certainly watchable although a lot different from the earlier versions> but then again you want to watch something different from earlier versions. Don't be put off by the poor reviews. Certainly worth a watch, I quite enjoyed it.
Summary: Fortunately I'm not a die-hard Universal Soldier fan and have only ever seen the first movie and Regeneration. However even I was confused as to why Luc Deveraux is now a Bond-esque villain cameo-ing his way through this like a roundhouse kicking Colonel Kurtz. Indeed there is that similarity where John is on the trail of Deveraux to kill him a la Willard and Kurtz. And old Dolph looks like he turned up for 2 hours work before going back to bed!
Summary: Disappointed in the story line. They've jumped the shark with this one as it went against everything that the original franchise stood for. The fight scenes were good, but a bit too much gore. Certainly not one to be watched with the family.
Summary: Just Awful. I thought this might be a reboot of the franchise or, at worst, one of JCVD's straight-to-DVD movies that are a canny-old-yarn to pass a couple of hourse. Poorly directed, badly ewritten and terribly acted a complete waste of time.
