An American soldier who had been killed during the Vietnam War is revived 25 years later by the military as a semi-android, UniSols, a high-tech soldier of the future. After the failure of the initiative to erase all the soldier's memories, he begins to experience flashbacks that are forcing him to recall his past.
I can understand why the military might want to use deceased soldiers as the guinea pigs for experiments designed to yield a more powerful commando, but you'd think that there would then be an explanation for why they're using dead soldiers from the Vietnam War despite taking place in the film's early-'90s present day.
And yes perhaps there is something to that, but as you may have gathered from the reviews in my Van Damme season thus far I actually like Van Damme and so don't really feel the need to take shots at him.
