A relaxing five-star holiday turns into an all out battleground for Marine recon sniper Joe Linwood when a group of local rebels seize control of the hotel taking the billionaire owner, and a group of guests, including Joe's wife, hostage. With the victims in danger of being brutally murdered, Joe takes matters into his own hands in order to save his wife 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
