The Marine is a perfect action film because the pulse-pounding sequences lean toward clarity, and keep up an exhilarating speed without letting things slow down and get boring.The Marine cranks the dial up to comic book proportions making the action much bigger and better then the average action flick.One of its defining characteristics is that it all looks very real and the acting feels very real and genuine.John Cena brings his trademark charisma and street thug antics to the film that wouldn't be nearly as entertaining without those characteristics.Basically this film is for people who <more>
want an adrenaline rush.It's a live-action video game that action fans who don't mind a few explosions will find entertaining.
The Marine Does Indeed Rock! (by PaulNewmanIsDead)
"The Marine" did really live up to the hype. It's one of the best action films I've seen in a long time. Starting the charismatic John Cena who is perfect in his role, John Triton or The Terminator you may call ,with great supporting roles like Kelly Carlson and Robert Patrick. The Marine has surprisingly good acting for action genre film.If you have seen the trailer of The Marine, you may think the trailer has give away every interesting things from the film. But in fact, the trailer only give away a very little bit of the film. The Marine is full of surprises, twists and <more>
actions, and doesn't contain too many typical action cliché.The Marine is full non-stop adrenaline action and has a very deep storyline that'll keep you occupied. It's a lot better than the mediocre previous WWE film "See No Evil". If you are into great pop-corn flick, or looking for a throw back to classic 80's action film. Don't miss it!
Great action adventure, who wants realism in a movie!!! (by williamstm)
Awesome movie! Why are you guys hating on this film. It had action galore, comedy, hot girls fighting, a fast camero, explosions and a freakin terminator. As for the comments on the fight scenes not being true to real life. Well I don't know about you but I go to the movies to watch films for there realism....NOT! I wanna see an indestructible bad-ass ripin through the bad guys. Come on this isn't reality TV, this is good old fashion action! John Cena played the role perfectly. This movie is a draw back to the old 80's action flicks like the A-team, Rambo, Camando and Delta Force. <more>
I look forward to more movies like this one. I recommend this movie to all those non-analytical types who are just looking for great action and entertainment.
Months prior to seeing this movie, I was watching it be knocked by so many people on this site. I knew that it couldn't be all that bad, so when it came out on DVD, I rented it. I loved it and calling it awesome would be an understatement. There was a few flaws bloopers, tires getting shot but stayed inflated and the acting was actually pretty good. People don't expect that wrestlers would be good actors in movies, but thats what wrestlers are...They're actors! Wrestling is Sports Entertainment! This had A lot of explosions and gun battles, quite a bit of killing and some <more>
intense fighting scenes. The film makers did an excellent job and so did John Cena. Robert Patrick and the other actors do not go un-noticed. I applaud this film.Go buy this, I did the day after I rented it. You will enjoy it. 9/10
When I went to see the Marine, I wasn't expecting much. I was expecting little or no plot and a lot of fighting and a lot of explosions. That's what everyone expects from any given action film, right? So I went to see it, with just that in mind. Having high expectations for action movies is not usually the smartest maneuver. I got my fighting and explosions, but the plot was more that I hoped for. It wasn't great, but it was good for an action film. It had enough to keep the movie going. John Cena played a classic action star to the T. Our group of villains also had just enough <more>
evil and just enough comedy to keep me entertained. Definitely worth a watch.
New-Age Rambo of the 21st Century (by AirBourne_Bds)
Now there may be some who say this is another punch, kick and romance film, but John Cena looks, acts and moves like if he was nothing but a Marine - when you place the fact of what kind of character he tends to play in WWE's "Raw" or "Smackdown" then you see another kind of person, same abilities but different applications...When with "Semper Fi" Marines' motto he broke regulations to save comrades from Al Qaeda operatives in not waiting for reinforcements, yet despite their being alive due to him, he was given a choice - an honorable discharge or a <more>
court-martial... Even his superior officer did not want him let go and arranged for the decommission with full honours! The way he dispatched the terrorists, was a bit queasy yet astounding, stepping on a neck 'til it snaps; shooting through a corpse while using it as a shield; beating a man with a burning plank of wood - it is amazing, if you have the DVD? Choose "unrated" to get the full effects! Now sent back home, Cena's life as a security guard went astray due to a stalking ex-boyfriend fighting with a secretary this psycho's daddy was a rich-man, so guess who gets to shift scott-free? , so starts The Marine's trip into South Carolina as a means of pleasing his wife, who wants him to relax...Enter Robert Terminator 2, X-Files Patrick and a trigger-happy bunch of jewel-thieves to rip off a shipment of diamonds just arrived, they do a getaway along the same route Cena travels and end up at the same gas station he is at - their first mistake! Then they take his jeep as a new getaway vehicle and his wife as hostage - their second and last mistakes! When they blow up the gas station and think he's dead, shoot the police car he borrowed to pursue the gang - one of them asks "My God, what is he? The Terminator?" and Robert Patrick just glares into the mirror of the SUV as the comment is made, a classic! It is not enough to say he took a lash with a sledge hammer or swam underwater far, any fit person may attempt those things but it is a Marine who can, will and must do them in reality - no offense to Cena but as fit as he is, I doubt he can do half of what a Marine can really do! One psycho in the gathering of crooks was quite humorous if stereotyped, Morgan - a black bazooka-launcher who hates camping - and he had a serious aversion to rock-candy... But his predilection for a fancy car and his assurance that "Brothers don't camp" and then he proceeds to contradict himself and give a "delivery" about his encounter with a counsellor when he was 13, hilarious! Abigail Bianca plays the bad-girl who in the end meets a swift demise as she is pelted out of a Mack truck straight into an oncoming bus! Yeesh, not for the squeamish! But in the end, Robert Patrick came close to reprising his T-1000 role, as he seeks revenge on Cena, who in not missing a beat, issues a "chain" reaction and he goes back to resuscitating his wife.In all, if you want an intellectual yarn, look for some version of "Pride & Prejudice", but if you want action galore - then this DVD is for you, it has extra features; Cena on WWE, Cena in Australia and other stuff like commentaries, if you're into that...http://bajanreporter.blogspot.com/
Great film that doesn't involve any brain activity (by ze_xibata)
Plot line is weak? Yes. The acting is bad? Well... you can't expect much acting from such a weak plot line anyway. But what I liked about this movie is that it is NOT an action movie, it is a comic action movie. Just sit back and enjoy some great explosions, fighting scenes and snappy comic remarks. I couldn't stop laughing through the whole movie. At least it looks like they didn't try to make a "serious" action movie. They tried to make a movie for those who enjoy WWE, I guess. And that is why I'm giving it an 8/10, since I think the movie fulfills it's <more>
purpose.It has some of the greatest explosions I've ever seen in a movie, seriously, kudos to the SFX team. The comic remarks vary from silly things like the "I hate rock candy" to references to other movies when you see the movie you'll understand . That is why I say this isn't a "serious" movie.To watch this movie I suggest a few friends, some beers and turn off all brain activity. I did that and had a good time watching it. And I still use quotes from the movie to grab a quick laugh.
It's better than people are going to give it credit for (by man_of_bats)
I saw The Marine earlier today and I thought it was great. It's not the greatest movie ever but it has all the elements of a great action movie. Lotsa explosions, a real ticked off guy, a hot girl, and more explosions for an hour and a half. People are going to crap on this movie simply because it's John Cena. Some people really need to ease up. Give the guy his due! I mean really when you watch you'll notice that most of Cena's scene's are pretty short simply because of his limited acting experience on the big screen, but when he is there he's pretty darn good I <more>
thought. So if you are an unbiased person reading this PLEASE don't let other people tell you that John Cena ruined the movie because he doesn't. Go see it. Go in expecting some big hits, and a few laughs along the way and you'll enjoy this movie a lot more. Kudos to John Cena for a real good first try.
I heard that this film was a stinker so went into it with low hopes.The cheesy salute and Cena in uniform against the flag for the opening title was so bad that I was ready to believe everything. Then he went and killed a few Arabs, rescuing some Septic soldiers in the process or was it the other way around? It was a needless introduction anyhow . Cue one semi-sex scene, at the start of which I was thinking, "Can this get any worse?" and then - as if by magic - we were spared the senseless soft porn and the film picked up.Cena takes a job as a security guard but things don't <more>
work out as planned though they're certainly entertaining , and he and his wife decide to take some time away from it all.Cute.Oh, wait, because Cena - just coming back from a tour of duty in Afghanistan, which saw him being dismissed from the Core - has seen too much sand lately or words to that effect and they opt for a trip to the mountains instead - a decision which leads to his wife being taken hostage by a group of diamond smugglers with a penchant for killing people at random.It's all been fun up to this point if only somebody would have re-edited the title and chopped off the opening scene and the tongue-in-cheek, over-the-top action suddenly goes into over-drive - much to my complete satisfaction.Unrealistic? Ludicrous?Well who wants to see real violence - it's not entertaining, it's sick! And "ludicrous" is the deus ex machina in Twelve Monkeys; nothing nearly as ill-fitting or bad as that can ever occur again - least of all in a film like this.Give this film a chance and make your own mind up about it - that's the best advice I can offer. Take it all with the extra pinch of salt it was intended to be seen with and you might just even find yourself enjoying it too.Oh, and in what other films does one hear terrific lines like, "Does everything have to be racial with you?"In order to know what I mean by that, you'll just have to watch it, but it's something I've expressed in the past to many a lip-kissing sound, so kudos for leaving the great satire in.
