"You can't run from this war, soldier!"
Swedish actor Dolph Lundgren has played many memorable characters in his career, from his breakout role as Ivan Drago in Rocky IV to unstable sniper Gunner Jensen in The Expendables, but his most enduring role has been that of soldier-turned-zombie cyborg Luc Devereaux in the Universal Soldier (US) series he helped launch back in 1992. After taking a hiatus from feature films while living in Spain, Lundgren returned to the US franchise in 2009 in Universal Soldier: Regeneration and he's back again in the sequel, Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning, which is currently available on Demand.
Tonight, we're kicking it old school style with the movie that launched the franchise. Join us for an action-packed thrill ride featuring Lundgren and fellow '80s action superstar Jean-Claude Van Damme as two special forces soldiers who killed each other during the Vietnam War and continued their conflict with one another after being reanimated as super-powered killing machines. The sci-fi action begins at 8:00 PM ET / 5:00 PM PT.
