A Must-See for John Cena fans!
Verified purchase
I love action movies so my standards are pretty high and I liked this one alot! The story and the stunts were good and the ending made sense. It wasn't a wrestler's movie. It was a movie starring a wrestler. Big difference! Good work John Cena!!!

It's ok I would say that not all but many marines that I have encountered have been brainwashed into this kind of mentality lol/ So, just take it for what its worth a few good entertaining scenes, however nothing to write home about.

Totally mindless but loved it!!

The bad guys are predictable, dialogue is inane and the plot is insipid. However, The Marine is a bad*** and there is just so much stuff getting blowed up in this film I spent an enjoyable mindless time watching. Plot spoiler (not really)...the good guy wins.

TOM & JERRY VIOLENCE FOR BOOMERS
Verified purchase
This is undoubtedly, the best cure for a boring sunday afternoon. Our hero (John Cena ) is poised to pick up the mantle of America's next Hero / Champion. The man can take a full force blast to to his cranium with Thor's Hammer and, resucitate after a minute; feeling invigorated enough to resume his Crusade. The wunnerful Robert Patrick (Terminator II) is his challenging nemisis, and does not dissapoint.
Now, THE ACTION sequences of this movie is what is worth the price of admission. From frame one, the pyrotechnics/asskicking is WHIZ BANG. The dialogue provides some fine comedic relief, " MAN, BROTHERS JUST DON'T DRIVE MINI-VANS, YA DIG? " (the pimp).
Cars disintergrate, bombs blow, bullets buzz, fires blaze, no time to bleed, complete the mission! This BLU-RAY izda bomb! Grandson, pass the popcorn.

I couldn’t even finish this it was so bad. The acting was horrible and special effects were abysmal. I was so surprised this had as good of ratings as it did. Don’t watch this movie!

My Favorite Action Flick Ever & with Humor!
Verified purchase
This is one awesome action film. I had seen John Cena in 12 rounds and it was entertaining for any evening. But this Marine is outstanding. Hand-to-Hand, explosions beyond counting, and humor too. We all enjoyed the wild, wacky, absurdity of the whole movie. And the Special Features were almost as good as the movie itself. Especially we enjoyed seeing the premiere of the movie at USMC Camp Pendleton. I wish we had had a John Cena movie when I was in the Corps. If you want beginning-to-end romping, stomping, hell, death and destruction....this flick is for YOU! The Terminator has nothing on the character of former Marine Triton. To say it is unbelievable doesn't even begin to cover it. BUT who wants reality in an adventure film. Get this and watch it with friends.

I am surprised by how much I enjoyed this. Surprised, and a little disappointed in my own taste, but anyway...You know exactly what to expect from this movie. Explosions, Fighting...and that's it. Luckily, it delivers both of those in spades, especially the 'splosions. I have never seen so many things blow up. Every fifteen minutes John Cena barely escapes some building blowing up. And in slow motion, of course. The story is Kelly Carlson is kidnapped by Robert Patrick and John Cena must rescue her.

Robert Patrick is plain fantastic in this flick. The filmmaker is smart as he gave the lion's share of the line to Mr. Patrick. He plays a great, sarcastic bad guy, plain and simple. John Cena can act in the sense that Arnold Schwarzenegger can act. Mr. Cena lets his actions do the speaking, thankfully. Plus, he's a hottie so...

Overall, just an easy, cheesy, blow-em-up, action B-movie. The extras are pretty lame, though.

Good movie, but found lacking.
Verified purchase
The storyline is good, but developing the characters of the "bad guys" was quite pathetic. No depth, no brains, just blow up things at random and find things to bicker and whine about... Especially trying to bring racism into the fray... lets blame the senseless violence on the "black guy". The character happened to be a black guy and had a penchant for self-destruction... and blowing everything else up as well. I personally found that little whining episode offensive no matter how you chose to interpret it.

The character development of John Triton was pretty good, but established him as more of a loose cannon rather than a highly skilled combat individual. This is further reinforced when he gets into fights and essentially uses his face to block many of the punches. That may work in the WWE, but does not establish a character who is supposed to be highly skilled in hand/hand combat.

Some of the scenes in the movie seemed to be filler to get minutes. Especially his encounter with the two poachers while running through the swamp.

However, the movie still managed to be fun to watch, once I was able to adjust my expectations for the movie to be WWE entertainment, and not as a full action movie.

Overall, you can enjoy this movie if you choose to, it isn't a total loss, but neither is it a winner.
