UNIVERSAL SOLDIER
1992, Sony Repertory, 102 min, USA, Dir: Roland Emmerich

Two of the 1990s’ biggest action stars - Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren - do battle in this highly entertaining sci-fi film. Luc Deveraux (Van Damme) and Andrew Scott (Lundgren) are Special Forces operatives shot dead in Vietnam and resurrected by a Pentagon program to create superhuman fighters. The reanimated soldiers are drugged to suppress past memories … but that doesn’t quite erase the fact that Deveraux and a deranged Scott had killed each other.
