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.

Jean-Claude Van Damme Vs Dolph Lundgren, both on 'supersteroids' is really exciting, especially after the successful character build up and the connections they have to the audience.
