Classic Trailer: Universal Soldier (1992)

I feel really old watching this trailer as I remember seeing this movie in the theatre like it was yesterday. Man, it was such a blast and to this day it’s between this, Sudden Death and Hard Target as my favourite Jean-Claude Van Damme movies.

I often forget that Roland Emmerich directed this and it would be kinda cool if he returned to the series and took it back to its roots. It went a bit weird in the most recent movie Day of Reckoning and lost the sense of fun that this original classic had.

Dolph is in fine form as Sgt. Andrew Scott which would end up becoming his most iconic role, which he would reprise in two sequels. One thing I miss from the sequels is Scott’s ear necklace; it was sadistically funny and gave us an excuse for some classic one-liners like “I’m all ears”.

The final fight sequence still has the best bad guy death of all time and when THE line is said, I cheer every time. “You’re Discharged… Sarge!”

I particularly love this trailer as it has Voice-Over man on top form; anyway, enough from me. Take a trip back to 1992 when a JCVD movie coming out in the theatre was an event.

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it’s a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone.
