Product Description

WWE champion John Cena dominates the big screen as Marine John Triton. Wherever there's danger, Triton is usually smack dab in the middle of it... and he doesn't play by rules! After he's unwillingly discharged from Iraq, Triton's beautiful wife Kate ("Nip And Tuck's" Kelly Carlson) is kidnapped by merciless jewel thieves led by a vicious killer (Robert Patrick)! Now, Triton must fight to save her, utilizing his most powerful weapon ? himself!

Amazon.com

The feature film debut of wrestling superstar John Cena, The Marine offers an agreeable smorgasbord of slam-bang action for viewers willing to swallow whole their disbelief for the sake of enjoying the plot. Cena, who is one of the most animated performers in the wrestling arena, is saddled with a taciturn role as a former Marine with an authority problem who tangles with dangerous jewel thieves (led by Robert Patrick) after they take his wife (Kelly Carlson of Nip/Tuck) hostage. Cena handles the physical duties of his role with ease, and former commercial director John Bonito offers him a frantic array of situations in which to display his prowess. On the whole, however, the picture is very light in the logic department, and filled with cardboard characters that quickly wear out their welcome (save Patrick, who tosses villainous one-liners with scene-stealing brio). Extras include a making-of featurette, which includes talking-head interviews with the cast, crew, and WWE head/producer Vince McMahon, as well as a barrage of shorter featurettes on Cena's rise to fame and the film's premiere at Camp Pendleton. --Paul Gaita

3.0 out of 5 stars a MAN movie February 6, 2008
Format:Blu-ray
Basicly this story is about a retired marine whose whife gets kidnaped from a hostage situiation. Well it's definatly action packed...but not completly true to life. Lots of explosions and fight sceans that are unnecessary. But it is very fun to watch if you don't mind random cars blowing up all over the place.

4.0 out of 5 stars NON-STOP ACTION ENTERTAINMENT April 10, 2007
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I never expected to be so thrilled and entertained by this almost tongue-in-cheek non-stop action thriller.

Robert Patrick (The BAD Terminator, in Terminator 2) is perfect as a vicious killer, but still pokes fun at his own movie when one of his killer friends who is failing at getting "The Marine" off their back, comments: "This guy is worse than the Terminator!".

The DVD and Blu-ray releases are crystal clear and fully color satutated. The spectacular stunts are supported by an incredibly potent DTS soundtrack.

5.0 out of 5 stars Non-stop action from beginning to end! January 29, 2008
Format:DVD
I was skeptical of this movie featuring a WWE wrestler (WWE wrestlers are notoriously bad actors) and because the movie was produced by the WWE rather a than a major motion picture company. However I was wrong. The movie was full of action and special effects. John Cena did a respectable job acting. The theme and plot were very entertaining, not cheesey or bogus. If you like action movies such as "Arnold" movies or Rambo movies then you will very much enjoy this movie!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a bad movie October 14, 2007
Format:DVD
To be honest , I gave it 4 stars but it's more like a 3 1/2 simply because it does have it's good points to it .

This film take's us back to the "later 80's action film ara" and can be compared to some of Steven Sagals films , or even Dulf Lungren.

I just can't get over the fact that it's John Cena in this film (and that's not really a good thing) His acting was OK and the action was good , but it's no "Condemed" with Stone Cold !

In short , it's OK and that's about it . It will entertain and it isn't a waste of money or time .

3 1/2 Stars

You pays your money and you takes your choice. When you go to see a movie like this, you should know what you're in for. There's going to be a lot of bad guys, and they're going to be really bad. There's going to be a damsel in distress. There's going to be a surprise bad guy. And, last but not least, there's going to be a good guy who is good and tough beyond belief.

John Triton (John Cena) is an heroic ex-marine whose wife, Kate (Kelly Carlson) is kidnapped by a brutal gang of jewel thieves led by Rome (Robert Patrick), who kills with glee and without remorse, which doesn't set him apart from his psychopathic gang members. John takes out after them. You get the feeling that John can take on anything up to the size of a platoon without much of a problem. While credibility might suffer during his chase, it's still fun. You will rarely see a human being with arms the size of Cena's.

Written (Michelle Gallagher and Alan McElroy) and directed (John Bonito) with humor and pace, what surprised me about it was that the acting is uniformly good, including Cena. This is a tongue-in-cheek chase film with some absurdly unbelievable stunts and special effects, but it's all done on a level that nobody takes very seriously.

Although there is a lot of violence, it's not graphic in the sense that we see people's heads being blown off. I was tired and sleepy when I attended the film, but never even felt a twinge of nodding off.

Perfect for a saturday night with friends after a long week of work.

1.0 out of 5 stars eye-poppingly terrible March 6, 2007
Format:DVD
it's funny how stereotypes can either make or break a movie. this was an aweful attempt to sell something that it wasn't. John Cena might be able to act, but he got completely shot down in this one from the horrible directing and script, as well as the terribly bad acting from the supporting cast except maybe from the sarcastic guy from Terminator 2.
I had an unbelievably hard time trying to get passed the self-stereotyping done by the bad guys. it was like they were trying to get the audience to hate the fact that they were even casted into the movie. This is one movie i wouldn't recommend to anyone except the extreme fans of the WWE, or maybe the little kids who believe the storylines in wrestling are actually real drama.
one fine point that i thought was extremely humorous about the movie. How is it that you can drive a camero (or whatever the cop car was) at top speeds with a million and one bullet holes in it and not either a) blow up, b) blow a tire, c) just die or d) not allow the driver to get hit from any of the million and one bullets?
i certainly hope this movie was supposed to be strictly a comedy because if it wasn't, the director should be shot and left in the car that mysteriously didn't blow up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Action Movie December 9, 2007
Format:DVD
The Marine DVD

It's interesting to see Vince McMahan and the WWE going into another form of "scripted entertainment", i.e., diversifying. Smart business move.

This is in fact a terrific action/adventure movie in the mold of the Rambo or Schwarzenegger films (e.g. "Commando") or the Indiana Jones series. The violence is not accurate in depiction of results, but neither is it in any movie where female stars takes full-power strikes and come bouncing back. If reality counted in the movies, there would be no girl-star action movies.

The violence is actually toned down in favor of action. For example, Sgt. Triton chooses to takes out two very tough villains in exciting brawls when he has a good fighting knife with him. Reality would have been different .... and much bloodier. Not much gore or blood in this picture, however, and you can safely take your pre-teen or teen son. Or yourself. My wife liked it, too, for that matter.

Don't be surprised to see the knife on the market soon, ala Rambo.

The acting was top-drawer within the context of the plot. I never heard of John Cena,so I can't be considered biased. Triton was seen first in front of his commanding officer, then interacting with his wife. He was supposed to be emotionally restrained with his commander, and strong but a little reflective with his wife. He was. Then The Marine had a mission. He had to complete it, not emote and burst into tears. After the adrenalin high wore off, he'd probably start shaking, but while things were going on, he didn't have time to be upset. Man, haven't the sweetie-boys who have panned his acting ever been in a fight? I never heard of the star,but he turned in a very believable good performance for the part. The excellent-looking wife did a fine job as well.

Good question, have the unrated DVD and there is nothing special added (nudity or more violence). It's just a marketing thingy
