Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
Luc Deveraux (Jean-Claude Van Damme), the heroic former Universal Soldier, is about to be thrown into action once again. With the Cold War over and defense budgets slashed, the entire Universal Soldier team is facing elimination, including SETH, the super-computer that controls the ultra-warriors. Knowing that his days are numbered, SETH decides to seek revenge by destroying his creators and implementing a reign of terror on the outside world. Morphing into human form as the quintessential Universal Soldier (Michael Jai White), SETH begins to unleash his wicked plan with the aid of his top soldier (Bill Goldberg). When conventional military strength fails to thwart his efforts, Luc must take charge. As Luc faces SETH and his team of unstoppable soldiers, a battle pitting man against machine and good against evil ensues, offering the kind of high-intensity sci-fi action you've come to expect from Van Damme in a story you won't soon forget.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: If the world is ever to be truly safe from Universal Soldiers, they, like Achilles, can suffer a mortal wound in only one place. For them, it's the box office.
Rotten: It's actually the fourth entry in the series, after a couple of straight-to-cable sequels. That's a lot of pulp to squeeze out of a concept that was fairly juiceless to begin with.
Rotten: An underwhelming follow-up to one of the career-stalled action star's better efforts.
Rotten: If Universal Soldier: The Return isn't the dullest, most derivative, unimaginative, noisy, repetitive, mind-numbing and generally imbecilic movie of the year, it's not because director Mic Rodgers wasn't trying hard enough.
VAN DAMS THE MAN
NEED MORE MOVIES OF HIM Is right
A return that's not welcome
Universol Soldier the return had nothing to do with the first movie and the acting is bad including Van Damme. The fight were great to watch but that's all. This movie is so bad that the third film (Universol Soldier: Regeneration) ignores "Universal Soldier: The Return. A must have for Van Damme fans and I'm a huge fan and I also love good movies and this isn't one of them sorry to say
I remember when I was 9, I clipped my toe nail on the edge of a concrete piece and stayed in bed. I was looking at some videos on the shelf and found this movie popping out...so I watched it and it was pretty enjoyable, loved the intro song and stunts in this movie. Good film to pass the time :)
