3.0 out of 5 stars HAVEN'T WE BEEN HERE BEFORE? July 12, 2009
Format:DVD
If nothing else one has to give credit to the WWE for attempting to spread out further than the squared circle. While their attempt at a new football franchise failed, their diving into the world of film has done well for them. Some movies hit highs and some drop to lows but they're almost always entertaining. They also provide a jumping board for the careers of their wrestlers. Such is the case with John Cena.

Cena has starred in one film already, the well received THE MARINE. An action film seemed a natural leap for him and he did a fine job handling acting and action chores both with ease. The next step was finding a follow up vehicle and that came about with the new release 12 ROUNDS.

Cena stars as New Orleans policeman Danny Fisher who winds up by circumstance in the middle of an FBI hunt to track down a terrorist named Miles Jackson (Aidan Gillen). A chase follows and after he stops the terrorist, Jackson tells his girlfriend to run before he takes the time to notice an oncoming truck in her path. Blaming Fisher for her death, he swears they'll meet again.

Fast forward one year later and Danny is now a detective. He heads to work only to get a phone call. It's Jackson and he informs Danny that he's taken Danny's girlfriend Molly (Ashley Scott) hostage. Just to let him know he's serious, Jackson blows up Danny and Molly's house while Danny watches. He then tells him they're going to play a game with the life of Molly hanging in the balance. All Danny has to do is win the majority of the 12 rounds Jackson has planned for him.

Danny contacts his partner on the force for assistance and then heads out to take on the first round.

5.0 out of 5 stars pure action January 30, 2010
Format:Blu-ray
The last time I watched a WWE movie starring John Cena... let's just say, I love my action hot and heavy and ended up VERY satisfied, haha.

So it's absolutely NO surprise to me that 12 Rounds is a classic.

So many things to admire about a movie like this... of course you can't take the good without the bad. The first 15 minutes were some of the most predictable and generic cheesiness I have ever seen in my life.

I was almost ready to turn the movie off after those horrible 15 minutes, but then... John Cena began the chase, and when the storyline finally kicked in, this movie completely blew me away.

Everything from car crashes to explosions to shootings... 12 Rounds does it all.

I can't imagine how difficult it was to film something like this. I can't imagine how much money it cost to waste all those vehicles! Actually the same thought comes to mind with ANY action movie. It must cost a fortune.

John Cena proves why he was chosen for this role- his acting skills are almost as good as his performance in the ring. He truly has a career as a movie star when his wrestling career is over.

The storyline is about John Cena's character accidentally killing a woman. To make a long story short, he goes to arrest a bad man, the wife/girlfriend of this man happens to be hit by a car right in front of them, so the guy takes it personally and, one year later when he mysteriously gets out of jail, he decides to take his revenge against Cena.

His revenge happens to be a carefully orchestrated and elaborate set of rounds that Cena MUST follow, or else his wife dies.

This movie is highly recommended for those who love movies such as Speed. GREAT edge of your seat action.

4.0 out of 5 stars Deja Vu, but well done August 21, 2009
By Pramod
Format:Blu-ray
In his earlier movie, John Cena was The Marine, which was not very well received. In 12 Rounds, he stars as Detective Danny Fischer of New Orleans Police Department. This movie is definitely a step up from The Marine as Cena has developed his acting and action skills further. The story is interesting and the action sequences are spectacular but one gets the feeling of having seen it all somewhere before. The bus bomb sequence is ripped from Speed - the bus number here is 5050, in Speed it is 2525. The blowing up of Cena's partner is another scene that takes me back to Speed [Blu-ray]. The streetcar sequence is somewhat similar to the train sequence in Spider-Man 2, but the action is more `human' than superhuman, so to speak. Others remind me of the various Die Hard movies.
Nevertheless, the director and the writers deserve credit for integrating all these sequences into a seamless whole so that it does not feel contrived or even impossible (we know it is). Aiden Gillen is superb as the villain of the piece, terrorist Miles Jackson. For once, the hero in this movie does not try to do everything on his own - he reluctantly agrees to FBI cooperation.
It is also great to see New Orleans being used as a locale for an action film. We are quite used to seeing L.A., New York and Chicago as a backdrop for action movies, but this was a revelation. The city looks stunning on blu-ray and even the many night scenes are well done. The film makers have gone to great lengths to use authentic settings, though I do not know the extent to which they used FX and CGI. The ending of the film was never in doubt, but it was a fitting finale. I have not yet seen the alternative endings, though.
