Here it is – the remainder of my interrogation with John Hyams, director of Universal Soldier 4: Day of Reckoning – one of the most insane, blood-curdling American action flicks ever concocted.

On January 22nd, Sony Pictures will release it on DVD and Blu-ray.

    Okay, you and Hyams did your jobs. I’m now dying to see this movie. Is it really as good as you made it sound???

  2. FDBK says:

    It’s not my job to sell the movie…..that’s perhaps John’s job.

    My job is to find interesting people (Lance exluded) to get on the podcast….and in this case, I had so much fun with Mr. Hyam’s berzerk action flick that I had to get him on the show.

    However I’m curious what you think of it…..

  3. Nick English says:

    Unfortunately, we’ll both have to wait a few weeks to find out.

  4. Nick English says:

    Quick question:

    In this podcast did you say there was an unrated director’s cut? Because I went to buy the flick today and it was rated R, so I didn’t pick it up. If that’s all that’s available, I’ll probably grab it. But if there’s an unrated version, I’d obviously rather have that.

  5. Nick English says:

    After some quick researching (a.k.a. Googling), it appears that the only US release so far IS the cut up R-rated version, which is disappointing.
    I guess I’ll just watch this via Netflix, and wait to buy it until the uncensored version is available . . . if that ever happens.

  6. FDBK says:

    Apparently there’s region free ones – but yeah – as you’ve figured out, the U.S. one is R.

    Very odd decision – but there you have it.
