'Killing Them Softly,' 'Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning' reviewed by Mr. Moviefone

11/30/2012 by 'Mr. Moviefone' Russ Leatherman

This week at the movies, nothing says holidays like some killin' and there's lots of it as some really dumb criminals try and rob the mob in "Killing Them Softly."

When a couple small-time grifters hit a poker game, the bosses call in the enforcer to hunt them down. Starring are Brad Bitt, James Gandolfini, Ray Liotta and Richard Jenkins.

The Reel Deal: Look, there is nothing soft about the killin' in "Killing Them Softly," a bloody, down and dirty, funny, Tarantino-like noir flick that only a fan could love, and I do. I'm in.

A group of specialized warriors has gone AWOL in "Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning."

Fueled by revenge after his family is killed, it's up to one man to stop the rogue army of genetically-modified soldiers and take down its leaders. Starring are Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren and Scott Adkins.

The Reel Deal: A live action video game mash-up for a testosterone-filled crowd, if this is your thing, and you know who you are, then "Universal Soldier" is the best Van Damme one yet. I'm in.

A young girl is about to become a part of "The Collection." When Elena is kidnapped by a serial killer known as "The Collector," her only hope is to make it out alive.

The Reel Deal: I didn't see this one because frankly, life's too short.
