"IF DAVID CRONENBERG AND LUC BESSON HAD A MUTANT BABY, IT STILL WOULDN’T BE ABLE TO MAKE A MOVIE QUITE AS HYPNOTICALLY BADASS AS THIS. John Hyams is a leading candidate for the title of Best Action Director Working Today. It delivers excitement without insulting the intelligence. SOME OF THE MOST IMPRESSIVE ACTION OF THE NEW CENTURY."

-Nick Schager, Village Voice


-Bilge Ebiri, New York

"This bloody wallow in sweat, guns and fisticuffs — for those who swing that way — DELIVERS."

-Andy Webster, NY Times

"Definitely has an odd, distinct power."

-Mark Olsen, LA Times

"IT CUTS DEEP. ONE OF THE BEST ACTION MOVIES OF THE YEAR. A remarkably satisfying action-thriller that keeps hitting the right beats."

-Eric Kohn, Indiewire

"Superior to most of the big-budget actions films I’ve seen lately."

-Kyle Smith, NY Post

"It's great. Surprisingly great."

-Alex Pappademas, Grantland


-Louis Black, Austin Chronicle

"It’s no stretch to say this is THE BEST UNIVERSAL SOLDIER MOVIE – better to say it’s the biggest cinematic boner your inner 17 year-old boy is likely to have this season."

-Luke Y. Thompson, Nerdist


-Matt Singer, Indiewire

"INTENSE, BRUTAL AND BEAUTIFUL ALL AT ONCE. A bold new direction for the franchise universe, and still every bit a Universal Soldier movie."

-Fred Topel, Crave

"Eye-popping visual style."

-Bilge Ebiri, New York

"Perversely fascinating. A freewheeling mashup of noirish mystery, splatter-movie intensity, first-person-shooter vidgame and "Apocalypse Now"-style surrealism. The bone-breaking, bullet-blasting violence is presented with a practical-effects, minimal-CGI approach bound to impress genre devotees."

-Joe Leydon, Variety

"One of the most remarkable action films of the 21st century."


"*****Can’t say it enough. SEE THIS MOVIE."


"**** An incredible, intense cyberpunk action film that would make Nicolas Winding Refn crack a smile."


"It’s original, brutal, well acted and with the best fight scenes you’ll see this year."

-The Action Elite

"**** One of the most brutal and disturbing movies I’ve ever seen."

-The Action Elite

"Skillful and crowd-pleasing action."

-Film School Rejects

"Slashing, limb-severing, body-pounding action."


"Makes A Star Out Of Scott Adkins."


"One of the Best Action Movies of the Year."


"The full-speed ahead testosterone of this thing would classify it as an illegal steroid if it were distilled into injectable form."


"This is the best Universal Soldier movie…it’s the biggest CINEMATIC BONER your inner (or outer, depending) 17 year-old boy is likely to have this season."


"Intense, brutal and beautiful all at once."

-Crave Online

"Adkins ignites the screen."


"One of the best hand-to-hand screen fights in recent memory."


About The Film

Jean-Claude Van Damme, Scott Adkins, Andrei “The Pit Bull” Arlovski and Dolph Lundgren star in UNIVERSAL SOLDIER: DAY OF RECKONING, which ups the ante in the UNIVERSAL SOLDIER series, giving you more hard-hitting, bloody, no-holds-barred fighting action.

John (Adkins, The Expendables 2) wakes up from a coma to discover his wife and daughter were slaughtered in a brutal home invasion. Haunted by images of the attack, he vows to kill the man responsible, Luc Deveraux (Van Damme). While John tries to piece his reality back together, things get more complicated when he is pursued by a relentless UniSol (Arlovski). As John gets closer to Deveraux and the rogue army of genetically enhanced warriors led by back-from-the-dead leader Andrew Scott (Lundgren), John discovers more about himself and begins to call into question everything he believed to be true.
