The removal of the special immunity on a young man triggers a series of events which summons his father for help.

It's a comedy in that there is a bunch of overacting. It's adequate bubblegum, and I'm glad to see Jean-Claude Van Damme again.

A possible cure for the plague that has ruined the world could be brought from New York City to Atlanta, but for a powerful gang that stumbled upon the opportunity.

It's not great, but it's not bad. Definite bubblegum movie watching; put your brain on hold and enjoy it for what it was trying to me. I don't regret the time I spent on this.

Learning of his brother's life-threatening injury, a prisoner escapes and falls into street fighting to buy his way back to his family.

This is a strange example that not all martial arts movies are either action or thriller. This is decent bubblegum if you're into this style of movie. It's not cheesy, it's just dated.

  • Trailer
  • It's actually subtitled as "Lyonheart".

A weak man's family gets killed but a strong man seeks revenge.

It makes zero sense so many times throughout the movie. It's also not proper within any of the universes of the previous movies. If you do or if you don't like the previous movies in this series, pass on this.

A previously-failed super-soldier program doesn't actually get buried after all, and everyone regrets that when its maintainers try to take over.

It's too heavy on the music, but it's generally okay.

A super-soldier program goes awry when some of its team begin to remember their past.

Quite a good movie. Even though it's old, it holds up well enough even with in-movie technology changes.
