A disappointing entry to the sci-fi / action-movie canon.
January 1, 2000
The Return has the cramped, shoddy look of a straight-to-video knock-off.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4

I would suggest that you use this film solely as a form of torture.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

Once again, Van Damme has made a truly horrendous movie that's not even worth watching for the mindless action.
Full Review | Original Score: 0/4
January 1, 2000
The video-game level plot can be summarized as: Fight. Shoot. Kill. The compassionless violence has humans being slaughtered three at a clip.

Universal Soldier: The Return is a letdown!
January 1, 2000
A screenwriter's desperate imagination!

Unfortunately, the ultraviolence is the only thing about this film that is memorable.
January 1, 2000
quickly made film, with uninspired direction, no unique purpose, populated with safe stunts and lots of shooting.

Let's hope, for [Van Damme's] sake, that his own return is not riding on this one.
January 1, 2000
What separates this one from all his rest? Not much.
January 1, 2000
A cheapo piece of claptrap.
January 1, 2000
From the opening chase to the closing explosions this one follows the action movie formula to the letter.
Full Review | Original Score: 46/100
January 1, 2000
Traditional movie standards don't apply here because this isn't a movie in any conventional sense.

The Muscles from Brussels mouths dialogue that wouldn't challenge a bivalve - and in an accent that makes Stallone sound like a master of elocution.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
January 1, 2000
The script is utterly witless.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

[A] gratuitously violent film.
Full Review | Original Score: D
January 1, 2000
Further proof that the international star once destined to challenge Schwarzenegger and Stallone at the box office is again stuck scraping the bottom of the action-movie barrel.
January 1, 2000
Stay far, far away from this laughably bad sci-fi action flick!
January 1, 2000
What reads brutal and exhilarating in Blade and The Matrix is pure slapstick in this muddy-looking movie.
