Another fabulous full-fat native 4K restoration from Studiocanal, doing a superb restoration job with the original 35mm print, remastered with Dolby Vision as the cherry on top
A very good DTS-HD Master Audio track
Studiocanal also does another good job on the extras front (again commendably porting them over to the 4K Ultra HD disc itself)
Van Damme's first 'blockbuster', Universal Soldier was the perfect vehicle for him and Lundgren
It may not be a 'good' movie, but, in its own way, it's a memorable and very entertaining 90s action 'classic'

Some movies, we love because they're genuinely good cinematic treasures. Others because they continue to make us laugh years later no matter their objective quality — the so bad, they're good type. And...
Roland Emmerich's Universal Soldier is a gloriously dumb romp littered with just enough explosive spectacle and amusing fight choreography to make it decent escapism. Featuring the stale, wooden performances...
