They've Defrosted Jean-Claude Van Damme For "Universal Soldier: Regeneration"

Everybody loves a supersoldier, especially when he's played by kickboxing master Van Damme. Now he's returning to his iconic role, to fight another supersoldier - in the ruins of Chernobyl! With Dolph Lundgren!

The straight-to-DVD flick picks up years after the early-1990s Universal Soldier. Here's the synopsis:

With stolen top-secret technology, terrorists have created a next-generation Universal Soldier - an elite fighter genetically altered into a programmable killing machine. With this "UniSol" (Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Andrei "The Pitbull" Arlovski) leading the way, they seize the crippled Chernobyl nuclear reactor, threatening to unleash a lethal radioactive cloud.

The only one who can stop them is Luc Deveraux (Jean-Claude Van Damme), a UniSol who's been decommissioned for years. Reactivated and retrained, Deveraux must make a full-out assault on the heavily armed fortress. But inside, he'll discover not one but two of these virtually indestructible warriors. Andrew Scott (Dolph Lundgren), Deveraux's vicious UniSol enemy from the original Universal Soldier, has been secretly reanimated and upgraded. Now these elite fighters are locked, loaded and programmed to kill; and the fate of millions hinges on this high-action showdown.


It's all worth it just to see Van Damme and Lundgren chewing radioactive scenery with the The Pitbull. You can grab this movie tomorrow at your local DVD store. It's the perfect flick to watch while wasted . . . on plutonium.
