Universal Soldier II: Brothers in Arms is a 1998 direct-to-video science fiction film, sequel to the 1992 film Universal Soldier. Despite featuring the same characters as the original, the film features none of the original cast or crew. It was followed the same year by Universal Soldier III: Unfinished Business. They were actually made as a miniseries meant for a potential TV series.[citation needed] In 1999, a theatrical sequel, once again starring Jean-Claude Van Damme, Universal Soldier: The Return was produced, which essentially ignored the plotline of the direct-to-video sequels entirely. Both the direct-to-video films are considered non-canonical since the plotline of both the films are ignored entirely in all the future films.[citation needed]

Plot[edit]

Following the events of the original Universal Soldier, the budget of the program has been cut by the government. However, under the orders of a CIA director, a gang of mercenaries take control of the new line of Universal Soldiers to use them in the diamond smuggling business.

Luc Deveraux (now played by Matt Battaglia), survivor of the first incident with the Universal Soldiers, continues to cause problems, the enemy takes his newly found brother and news reporter Veronica Roberts prisoners.
