Together Again Universal Soldiers Are Now Team ! (by nikola17)
This Movie was my type i understand Dolph Lundgren hasn't done much in movie in action he has done a lot action in this movie but not as van damme does, i understand that's dissportant and their are some plot holes in movie witch i don't want to spoil as bad, this was a lot of action and kick ass, Storyline is a bit messy and that is mostly What drawed me away from the movie from time to time, it didn't make me to hate movie it never did, movie didn't block it's own way. Lundgren has a good role but is not in the movie enough, as Van Damme he was their, not's like <more>
their was twist where Lundgren Character turns out to be Bad Guy if that does i would have called it Universal Soldier Black Water. i understand this movie has low rating got bit dissportant from people just because movie got low rating doesn't mean reviews and people will stop you to watch this ! Anybody to watch This i actually Think you should if you are a fan of these two. Its still great fun to see your childhood heroes onscreen, a lot kickass action, and yes Van Damme and Lundgren do they do team up each another. doesn't mean it's not enjoyable as an action flick, especially if you're a fan of Van Damme or Lundgren. But it has some painful flaws that actively hurt the viewing experience and in no way does it live up to the very hype concept. It's mysterious and has a slight horror-aspect to it, kind of like Pound of Flesh with Van Damme. But it's also amusing thanks to Lundgren's character, which was obviously a role written with him in mind. And above all it gets you pumped for a good action flick with two icons. Are JCVD and Lundgren going to have to escape an under water jail? Is this going to be Death Warrant meets Under Siege meets The Expendables? i was watching this with friends i was saying nothing like Expendables you need a ensemble cast for that. but i could say it's like Escape Plan Meets Under Siege because Stallone gets kidnapped and he was sent in prison and he met Schwarzenegger character got locked up in prison, well in this it's not about them Escaping nope that's what it's about that's in it but that's not what story is involved, but movie is not about Escape Plan as in this Van Damme and Lundgren are locked in Submachine. Wheeler wakes up in Submachine which is a flashback to know how Wheeler ended up where he is they have to it's more about story that follows Scott Wheeler Jean Claude Van Damme is a CIA agent looking for a leak in the CIA along with his partner Melissa Courtney B Turk she is a villain chick actress know for Vice, Heist AKA Bus 657. by using a USB drive that needs two components to activate. Wheeler is captured and drugged by Agent Ferris Patrick Kilpatrick now he appears in a lot action movies in 80's and 90's like Death Warrant, Under Siege 2, Eraser, Last Man Standing, he has appeared over million action movie cameo's Ferries believes Wheeler is responsible for the deaths of his fellow CIA agents, Agent Rhodes Al Sapienza believes Wheeler is innocent. after all hell breaks lose you have another actress Jasmine Waltz as Cassie Taylor not known much in movies National Lampoon's TV: The Movie. then Rhodes is now main villain in movie he wants drive as well i am like this movie is twisting a lot of things this movie twist's a lot things, then Wheeler is teaming up with Cassie for bit then that's when Dolph Lundgren Marco is in all movie kicking ass in movie with Van Damme in action with Cassie witch i liked and yes and always Kris Van Damme in movie as villain, always has fight scenes each another. in all movie they killing bad guys founding main villain they were funny moments where Marco deceiving Rhodes, now rest of movie their are twist after that Melissa is now Villain in movie i wanted to see Cassie and Melissa to have fight scene together girl fight, there are cool action moments, witch i am not going to spoil. You could blame the director he hasn't made much action and another thing is there some things in movie never explained, the cast, or whoever in charge of casting, or the set. But I think we should just blame the budget. If this had been a big budget film the action scenes, the cast, Just Like with Skin Trade Dolph Lundgren and Tony Jaa and all those aspects would have been way better. The movie does have some good moments, and it's in these moments that you feel what this movie should have been. What this movie needs? 1: Re-writing of the scenes and especially the action scenes. I KNOW Van Damme and Lundgren has still got it. but i wish movie it could have been bigger budget, well well made, story needs to be fixed a lot more because their are some moments it's in movie never explained sadly i wished it could be better budget, like skin trade, more and more crazy fun action in movie their is but i wished it could be better, better director, better script writers, someone who could write better who can make plot make more sense that's what it needs to be involved but hey it's what it is how movie is made i loved movie a lot of fun it's van damme and lundgren together again, story plot twist is good but their are moments where it could got more lundgren more of longer movie, more of crazy action i wished this directed buy director from Skin Trade. ignore the reviews just because it got bad reviews and it got so much crap doesn't you expect their opinions i am not forcing you to watch movie, i am not doing that if your die hard fan of action and Van Damme and Lundgren in one movie like Universal Soldier again then their you go end of day you make choice it's not really baddest movie like Uwe Boll movies like 1.0, this movie wasn't that bad as Uwe Boll movies, i am not saying Uwe is involved i am just saying give it look you never know you might like it or not what so ever but reviews are wrong they are not right all time, because reviews is just say's different things if you watch this you will end up liking it or you love it. now i didn't love this movie just because van damme and lundgren and action, movie has a lot great twist plots, a lot of fun, it's decent fun movie, i like how Van Damme and Lundgren are team it's different style not villains like Universal soldier, but movie is enjoyable i loved it 10.10 their's not much to say or else i will spoil it or else i have to spoil it you won't need to watch it, you need to watch it, it's worth it !
Damme along with Lundgren play off each other excellent!! They should make more and more movies together!! No it is not some over the top big budget film. Not hardly. Just a middle of the road guy film that the garden variety male should truly enjoy!!! So sit back get a good plate of supper or a snack and a ICE COLD I DO MEAN AN ICE, ICE COLD BEER AND DRINK UP AND ENJOY THIS FELLAS FLICK!!
Shoot to thrill (by unbrokenmetal)
'Black Water' really surprised me. It's easily one of the best entries in the filmography of its two stars in this decade. Comparisons to the old days are quite useless, because I wouldn' expect someone who is almost 60 to put his foot in other people's faces a lot - apparently some fans do, and that's the bunch with the low ratings. The movie does not feature any kicks, look elsewhere for that. Instead, 'Black Water' is an intense thriller with psychological tension okay, and a lot of ammo used as well . Agents from different sides are locked in a submarine <more>
with their enemies, some may be double agents, most of them don't tell the truth, so the captain and many others have a hard time guessing who is on who's side - and then, in the extremely narrow space, chases and deadly shoot-outs take place. Jean-Claude Van Damme as Wheeler is the hero here, while Dolph Lundgren as Marco is a prisoner whom Wheeler releases although he doesn't know anything about him, believing "my enemies' enemy is my friend - probably" which is a good example of how the movie never lets his characters walk on safe ground. Small grudges like the embarassing love scene aside, a good movie that did not need a big budget due to its confined location almost completely taking place inside the submarine and a clever script.
Really impressed with Black Water, good screenplay and seeing JCVD and Lundgren on screen together is always entertaining. Having a strong supporting cast always helps and this film has it with Patrick Kilpatrick great villain from Death Warrant , and Al Sapienza. Intense action that includes a good fight sequence between JCVD and his real life son, Kris. A couple twists and highly entertaining throughout!
