This film is grossly formulaic with bad acting. It has the lame soundtrack and writing of a Lifetime film. Jake (Mike 'The Miz' Mizanin) is home on 2 weeks leave in the small town of Bridgetown, Washington. He stays with his two sisters, doesn't approve of their boyfriends and has a hard time controlling himself to the dismay of family and friends. For a Marine, he needs a haircut.

Meanwhile, Jonah Pope (Neal McDonough) is a bad guy who has a grudge against the system. Being raked over by the stock market, banks, and health insurance companies, Jonah devises a plan of revenge in the city of Seattle. During an arms deal, Jake's sister Lily (Ashley Bell) and her "not a loser" boyfriend (Jeffrey Ballard) get taken as hostages as they witness a crime.

The FBI is apparently helpless to save the hostages and the city of Seattle, only a Marine can do that.

The script was written very badly. I can't fault the actors for trying. The political speech made by Jonah was unbelievably phoney. This is for fans of the combination of Steven Seagal, Marines, anarchists, and after school specials.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.

Love him or hate him, The Miz has taken this series by storm. While Cena may have started it off and had a few good moments, and Ted Dibiase had a few of his own, Miz really takes it up another notch. Great action movie. Not something you would expect to see in the theaters of course, but perfect for a Straight-to-DVD release.

Mike "The Miz" Mizanin stars as Sgt. Jake Carter who returns home to Bridgetown, WA for two weeks to his family of his big sister Amanda (Camille Sullivan) & baby sister Lilly (Ashley Bell) along with his friend & who he later finds out is Amanda's boyfriend in Officer Harkin (Jared Keeso) but is critical & overprotective of certain issues going on such as Lilly's boyfriend Darren (Jeffrey Ballard). Lilly & Darren later witness a shooting during an arms deal with Jonah Pope (Neal McDonough) before being taken hostage by his group of extremists which Jake finds out about & goes after her but encounters difficulties along the way such as F.B.I. agents Wells (Steve Bacic) & Thompson (Nicola Anderson) who attempt to stop him from interfering in their own mission to stop Pope from committing a deadly terrorist strike.

The basic plot for this movie was no different than the previous editions where it's an off-duty marine going after the group of villains who kidnapped someone close to him so that hasn't changed but the way it was portrayed takes after the previous sequel where it's a more realistic & serious tone instead of over the top acting & action like the first installment. The action was your basic fist fighting & gun play while this had the best acting out of "The Marine" trilogy as Miz did a good job while I've enjoyed Neal McDonough's work in various movies as well. This is definitely worthy of a rental while it's a movie I wouldn't mind watching more than once.

Quite frankly, the way the part of The Marine is cast, I don't care. Lead actors in this series take second place to my absolute adoration of action movie high-octane scenes. Running, jumping, shooting, things exploding everywhere! Mindless, senseless, wanton destruction! Now that's what makes an action movie!

Come now, don't tell me that you actually enjoy Arnold's acting! The man has four facial expressions: Stone Face, Gleeful I'll Kick Your Ass Face, Crazy Face and Fake Fear Face. His voice has never changed tone or inflection, it's just loud and louder. He has the range of of a broken-necked guitar. We love the BOOM!

One thing about Mike Mizanin, he's got some talent. He IS in the WWE, and every Superstar/Diva is an actor/actress. Ted DiBiase and John Cena are reasonably talented as well; they don't bore me like Arnold does. I love the WWE enough to watch the Monday and Friday shows regularly, I even like the OTHER wrestling company enough to watch it sometimes.

The love of action movies is mostly about the love of the adrenaline rush. A big, manly man running around, dodging bad guys, making stuff blow up, shooting big guns. The Marine series is rolling on, and it's GREAT! Mizanin is admirable participant in the lastest installment. Haters Love the Miz!

RIP Paul Bearer. You'll be sorely missed.

THE MARINE 3
HOME FORNT

I thought the first “The Marine” film was really good and much better than people give it credit for. The second film while not as enjoyable was still fun in my opinion, especially the story; it was “Die Hard” on an island. This one like the previous two is about a Marine on leave but it is much more like another WWE film, “Walking Tall” that starred The Rock. That of course was a remake and a very good one at that.

Jake Carter [The Miz] is a Sergeant in the Marines and is on leave coming home to see his sisters. Of course like any brother he isn’t happy with their boyfriends. But none of that matters when his younger sister [the wonderful Ashley Bell] and her boyfriend witness a murder during a weapons deal gone wrong. They are kidnapped by these terrorists so now the Marine must take action to save his sister and stop these guys.

Now like I said this reminded me of the “Walking Tall” film with the way the story kinda goes but also because the lead villain is the same actor in both. Neal McDonough is excellent always in any role but I love him as a villain. His skill plus those piercing eyes make him perfect for the role. Also I mentioned the wonderful Ashley Bell [who really impressed me with “The Last Exorcism”. Like Neal this is her second WWE film, the first being “The Day” which was also very good. She like always is great and this is a cool role for her, very different than what I have seen previous. Of course we also have Mike Mizanin also known as The Miz who in my opinion is excellent here. He actually may be the best actor from the WWE guys from the past few years. I will have to go back and re-watch some stuff but he really impressed me here as he did in his next film for them, “Christmas Bounty”.
