The "universal soldiers" must fight the whole army, when the military's supercomputer S.E.T.H gets out of control.
Subsequent Universal Soldier films ignore the events of The Return, and outright contradict it in several ways. While still an official entry, it is no longer considered part of the franchise canon.
This is not your lucky day.
(at around 30 mins) During the battle in the Chemical Weapons storage room, where UniSol Romeo is stalking Luc and reporter Erin Young, Luc starts out wearing a dark jacket over his gray shirt. After a short cutaway from him and Erin, his dark jacket is suddenly gone with no visible sign of it. Later, as the movie returns to the Chemical Weapons room fight after a brief detour, Luc suddenly has his dark jacket back on, but this time we also see him actually take it off after it catches fire.
The UK cinema version was cut by 1 second to obtain an 18 certificate. Video and DVD versions were cut by 12 secs to remove a back break and an ear clap.
