Universal Soldier 4 - Cuts for the R-Rating

Censored Theatrical Version, Unrated on DVD/BD

Even though Jean-Claude van Damme and Dolph Lundgren don't get any younger, one of the franchises that brought them fame and fans is still something they want to participate in. In Day of Reckoning, which is the 4th installment of the Universal Soldier series. Here, Scott Adkins (Undisputed 2 + 3) has to face the two of them.

We found new, interesting information regarding the versions of the film in the German message board VanDammeFanz.com. One of their users got to talk to director John Hyams and was told that the MPAA wasn't too glad with the original version of the film. Here's what Hyams had to say about it:

"To the best of my knowledge, I believe the cut that you saw is the original director's cut. However, I'm under contract to deliver an R rated cut for the United States theatrical release. The MPAA felt that my original cut was too violent and I was forced to make edits. The original cut will show at Fantastic Fest in the US, and be the main version released on bluray. I've also been told that Magnolia is considering releasing both versions VOD. However, as I said, the domestic theatrical will be the R rated, edited version. Of course, I like my original version better."
 
It'll be interesting to see how the later DVD and Blu-ray will turn out. Hopefully, it turns out as Hyams speculates and we get the unrated version on there. Time will tell and we'll surely keep an eye out for further developments. However, this should be warning enough for those who wanted to catch it in theaters. Some of the goods will surely be missing.
