Product Description

Inspired by a true story, The Marine 2 was shot entirely on location in Phuket, Thailand and stars WWE Superstar Ted DiBiase as Marine recon sniper Joe Linwood. Reminiscent of the 2001 Dos Palmas incident, Linwood's trip to paradise with his wife is suddenly shattered when guerillas take control of a secluded five-star resort asking for a substantial ransom. The guerilla leaders begin murdering hostages as the clock ticks away, forcing Joe to use his expert skills to save the hostages from certain death.

WWE wrestler Ted DiBiase Jr. stars as Joe Linwood, a marine sharpshooter who goes with his gorgeous wife to a beautiful tropical resort--but when terrorists take his wife hostage, Joe leaps into action! There's no simpler way to describe it: The Marine 2 (which has almost nothing to do with The Marine beyond the title) is Die Hard on a tropical island. And as such, it's pretty good. The cinematography captures the luscious landscape and crystal-clear waters; the action scenes are punchy and propulsive; the villain, played by Temuera Morrison (probably best known as Boba Fett in the Star Wars prequels, but he first made his mark in the compelling Once Were Warriors), is suitably intimidating; and DiBiase may not be emotionally expressive, but he's a solid hunk of muscle. Michael Rooker (Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer) hams it up as an ex-soldier turned scuba guide who gives Joe a hand when the chips are down. Pitch your expectations appropriately and The Marine 2 will provide solid action entertainment. --Bret Fetzer

Joe Linwood (Ted Dibiase Jr.) is a Marine who decides to go on a vacation with his wife Robin (Lara Cox) to an exotic island resort that's owned by a client of hers as everything starts out nice before an attack happens at the grand opening party with all the guest taken everyone hostage including Joe's wife. From there, Joe is determined to go in & get her but has to deal with the terrorist themselves along with other obstacles like politicians trying to not make this an international incident, a retired Army soldier who doesn't "want to be a hero", mercenaries who work for the highest price, and finding out throughout the movie that not everyone can be trusted.

As usual when it comes to sequels, they all get compared to the original as this movie is one of those type of sequels where it has absolutely no connection to the previous movie with the exception of it being a very similar plot so don't expect to see any reference to characters you saw in the first Marine movie. The only thing this & the previous movie have in common is the story of a Marine being in the wrong place at the wrong time with his wife being taken hostage & with him going to save her but that's it besides that basis along with the involvement of certain elements that go into an action movie. Dibiase does more "acting" as far as dialog than Cena did while his character & the entire environment was more "realistic" thanks to more dept & development as far as the story itself goes along with them learning from the first film & not trying to mix bad humor in with the movie.

We all know that Cena is not in this movie. I was angry when I first heard it but I can say I was very impressed with the new casting of Ted. He did an amazing job and I look forward to him starring in more movies. I thought the plot was predictable but it didn't matter. The cast was realistic and the action was nonstop and not overboard.

The bluray itself looked amazing with vivid colors and amazing detail. Also the sound effects and sound track gave my sound system a run for its money. I was amazed of how well the bluray turned out compared to many other movies.

I was really impressed by the overall effects and casting. It was done much better than I would have guessed!!!! You can't go wrong with this.....

This is a must own for this genre......

First off, I was disappointed that John Cena wasn't coming back for the sequel, and when I heard it was Ted DiBiase filling his shoes, I was extremely skeptical. However, I decided to rent it and give it a chance. Overall, I was suprised and impressed how well the movie turned out. The action scenes are solid, and the story moves along at a nice pace. DiBiase delivers as a marine and does a nice job as the hero. Even if you're not a big fan of him as a wrestler, give him a chance in this movie. I think most people will be suprised!

I just finished watching The Marine 2 and i have to say that the sequel is alot better than the first one starring John Cena. For example, He plays the role very honestly, sort of how Bruce Willis Played John Mcclain in the Die Hard movies. You Think Ted's character doesn't stand a chance but somehow he makes things happen. Also another surprise was his acting. There's a moment where you forget he's a wrestler. It's really nice to see someone actually have real chemistry with their co-stars. The action is top notch, although i would of preferred not seeing wrestling moves, witch aren't many, maybe like three moves but still. I know the WWE is behind these films but i don't understand why they always have to incorporate wrestling into all their films. Anyways, overall, this movie is worth watching. People need to stop being so close minded and give this movie a chance. And the WWE needs t ostart paying attention to Ted DiBiase because he has the potential to be a huge success in his own right, weather it be in the wrestling ring or in films. He could easily be the next Dwayne Johnson, if given the opportunity.

Good movie with plenty of action. However, the movie was just not the same without John Cena, the original actor from the first "The Marine". Worth buying and worth adding to your movie library. Enjoy!

When people hear WWE films, or see that a wrestler is starring in a movie, they are automatically turned off, and I never understood why. We tend to see wrestlers as muscles heads, running around in their underwear, but the truth is that wrestling is fake. These guys are all actors who every week need to learn line and choreography, just like an actor does! When WWE films was launched in 2006, a lot of people snickered, but the truth is, we've gotten some pretty films from the company, including 12 Rounds, The Call, See No Evil, and The Marine. Much like other Action films, the plot of the Marine 2 is somewhat thin. The story features a highly decorated, U.S. Marine, on vacation with his wife, when the resort is overrun by terrorists. The Marine (Ted DiBiase Jr.), has to take it upon himself to save his wife and the other hostages, when it becomes painfully obvious that the local military isn't equipped to deal with the terrorists. DiBiase Jr., a third generation wrestler, is the star of this film, an unlike John Cena in the first film, DiBiase really seems to have some type of military training in his background. The action and fight sequences are much better in this film then they were in the first. DiBiase Jr. really seems to know what he's doing and it made the story that much more enjoyable. What DiBiase Jr. lacks in acting skills, is more than made up for with the terrific action sequences. He is also aided by some fairly big names for a film like this, including Michael Rooker of The Walking Dead and Star Wars, Temuera Morrison. The first Marine film was a debut for a studio and lacked the bite of most Action films. The second installment was much better, featuring a more experienced cast, and much better fight sequences. You may not want to see this film, because it's a WWE production, and I can respect that, but in all honesty, you'll be missing out on a more than decent Action movie.
