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
