Los Angeles Times - Kenneth Turan
It may be standard-issue stuff, but it looks great and it almost makes you nostalgic for the days when stuntmen reigned supreme and mayhem and computers never knew how much they had in common.
Chicago Tribune - Dave Kehr
The film is actually fairly well made, with a brisk tempo pace, a professional look and enough competently staged action.
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
I suppose there is a market for this sort of thing among bubblebrained adolescents of all ages, but it takes a good chase scene indeed to rouse me from the lethargy induced by dozens and dozens of essentially similar sequences.
Entertainment Weekly - Owen Gleiberman
Viewers primed for a postapocalyptic blowout will be disappointed to learn that Universal Soldier is set in the boring old present day, and that until the climactic clash the film is slow-moving and short on firepower.
