John Cena of the WWE stars in this brawler of a film as John Triton, a marine who is discharged after he disobeys orders while rescuing prisoners in Iraq. Now he's back home in South Carolina with his wife, Kate (Kelly Carlson), and an unfulfilling security job. Meanwhile, a gang of colourfully violent jewel thieves knock over a diamond business and blow a police car 30 feet in the air while making their getaway. John and Kate are driving out in their SUV for a weekend in the mountains and wind up at the same gas station as the robbers. Shots are fired, the fuel tanks explode, and the bad guys hightail it out of there--with Kate as a hostage. Triton must now use his formidable marine training to track the bad guys via car chase, boat chase, and knife-in-hand swamp-stalking. Despite the rampant violence, this is suitable for the WWE fanbase, as it downplays the blood and death and ups the quotient of sucker punches, throwing guys through walls, and leaping away from fireball explosions in slow motion. Robert Patrick plays the lead bad guy, shrugging off wry in-jokes about his role in TERMINATOR 2 while he shoots witnesses. Abigail Bianca is the evil girl in the gang--she and Kate get to have a fight of their own before it's all over. Fortunately Cena manages to hold his own onscreen amid the amusing dialogue and flying fists, making for a satisfying addition to the ranks of action heroes.

Ok lets get this straight this is not gonna be The Godfather its exactly what it says on the tin an action movie,If you like explosions and people beating each other up then this is for you.

The next movie from WWE films again stars one of the WWE Superstars this time John Cena as John Triton a marine who is discharged from the Corps after disobeying an order,back in civvy street he is finding life hard until he and his wife decide to get away then its all goes horribly wrong

A bunch of jewel thieves led by Robert Patrick have availed themselves of millions of dollars in diamonds and are on their way to a drop off when they stop at a gas station along with Mr and Mrs Triton when the bullets start flying Mrs Triton is taken hostage cue Mr Cena.

Ok there are more plot holes than in a swiss cheese but in this sort of movie you dont really care,Cena is actually ok think the Rock in Walking Tall its his first time and he acquits himself ok.The bizarre thing about John Cena even at 6'1 and 240plus pounds he doesnt look that big.

Anyway Australia stands in for South Carolina !! its cheaper apparently but its a great Friday nite movie and far better than current efforts from the likes of Seagal and Van Damme.

Lets be honest this was a very watchable film the plot was very simple the acting was not the best I have seen. Plenty of holes in the story and the action scenes were a little stretched but you need to switch off sit back enjoy. The action scenes were very good plenty of fighting and shootouts and big bangs. My only problem was the humour it was lacking trying to be funny when the film didn't really need it. John Cena I thought is made for this sort of role, I think with a better director and more to work with he could be brillant in a Rambo style film the opening part of this film you will see why. Bottom line there are far worst films out if you see it cheap buy it you can't go wrong.

Err. . .

Sometimes you just need to get your onesy on (lock all doors first!), crack a few beers open and get a chippy meal delivered, (Duck ginger spring onion for me thanks) and watch a no brainer, shallow plotted, mega choreographed fight fest. . .with loads of guns and explosions.

The Marine is that movie on that night in! Starring WWE mega star John Cena as John Triton a US marine.

The opening scene is 'AWESOME' (to be said in an American accent). We see John in Iraq rescuing a fellow soldier who's being held hostage. He decides to go it alone and being a one man army decimates the enemy juggernaut style. Gets back home and is given the order of the golden boot for not obeying orders.

Whilst twiddling his thumbs wondering where his life is going, his wife is kidnapped by a ruthless crim called Rome played by Robert Patrick (The Terminator T-1000) and his gang. Unfortunately for Rome, Cena is as hard as Lonsdalite in a Troy Hurtubise trojan suit of armour (google it, impressive)

This ain't no masterpiece by any stretch of the imagination, hell it ain't even good but what it is, is fun!

If you like big explosions like in one scene somebody shoots a small propane bottle, camera pans out and a small atom bomb goes off blasting a rickety old shack to kingdom come and fight scenes where Cena pulls off some cracking moves such as the flying shoulderblock, the five knuckle shuffle (I kid you not! It's one of his signature finishers, no pun intended) or his famous FU, awesome (don't forget the accent now) car chases and corny one liners. . . then I can recommend this.

If you take your movies very seriously, looking for plot holes and the likes, I'd definitely give this one a miss then.

Great fun indeed.
