Product Description

WWE superstar Mike "The Miz" Mizanin delivers a knock-out performance in the most explosive, action-packed Marine adventure yet. After returning to his hometown on leave, Sgt. Jake Carter learns that his sister has been abducted by a band of violent extremists. To save her, Carter launches a daring one-man assault on their base of operations...only to discover the group's ruthless leader is plotting a deadly terrorist strike. With time running out, Carter realizes he's the only man who can stop the impending massacre -- but this American hero may have to make the ultimate sacrifice to save thousands of innocent lives.

The Marine 3: Homefront opens with an unapologetic commercial for the Marines before it settles into the familiar rhythms of a formulaic action flick. Marine sergeant Jake Carter (professional wrestler Mike "the Miz" Mizanin) comes back to his small-town home in Washington state, only to rub his independent sisters the wrong way by acting paternal and disapproving of their boyfriends. But when trouble appears in the form of a domestic terrorist (played by the icy blue eyes of Neal McDonough, Desperate Housewives), everyone's glad to have Jake around… and butt kicking ensues. The Marine 3 (which bears no connection to the previous Marine movies other than that the hero is a Marine) is rote stuff, pedestrian but competent, though given a little twist with the villain's topical grudge against the banking system. McDonough lends a touch of gravitas to the bad guy, and Mizanin is likable enough--this is action-movie comfort food, served up with no pretensions, plenty of gunfire, and just a garnish of upraised patriotic chins. --Bret Fetzer

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.

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.

For a Class B movie, the acting wasn't all that bad. I didn't recognize any of the actors, but they performed beyond my expectations, especially the lead role. The action sequences were what one would expect from this type of film, but, all in all, I would recommend it, even if you only watch it once.

The Marine 3 follows up 1 and 2 by two things: change of title characters and action. Beyond that, only the name's the same. Well, in 3 they _are_ back in the US of A. Mike Mizanin "professional athlete" stars as Sergeant Jake Carter, USMC. Sgt. Jake is home from the Sandbox. His sister, Lilly Carter (Ashley Bell known for her roles as Nell Sweetzer in The Last Exorcism and The Last Exorcism Part II) is kidnapped. Bring on Jake and his bad attitude and cue the action.

The Marine 3 is little more than a platform by which another "professional athlete" gets to ply his meager wares. The action is predictable and by this point, if you haven't figured it out from The Marine and The Marine 2, action is about all you'll get.

This is an okay movie. It's quickly forgettable but worth watching if you've nothing important lined up in your day.

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.

The movie being in Seattle and starring the Miz was the reason I bought it. He did an adequate job of playing the 'strong, silent type' even though he does not come across that way in stature - he has more a volatile look to me and if he was portrayed with less tolerance, it would have been more believable.

As with most movies nowadays, the 'F' word is used waaaay too much to be effective. It loses the stress meaning and makes the person 'look' like a low class individual whose parents didn't love themselves enough to teach them respect 8o).

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.
