The Marine (2006)
Review by Bradley Frohloff

6 / 10
The Marine is your standard macho action affair. John Cena is a likeable guy but a pretty mediocre actor. Everything in the movie is presented in extremely ridiculous fashion, from its massive explosions with fighting that would put normal people into coma but in the case of this movie seems to barely leave a scratch, to even the most menial of tasks such as skipping over a log in a forest being presented as if we had just seen the most insane parkour move of the century.

I got out of it exactly what I was expecting which was a generic plot with a whole bunch of guys getting beaten up without the marvel of technique and a few chuckles to boot. It's not bad if you're looking for a brain-dead way of keeping yourself busy with nothing better to do but there's nothing special or unique about it that helps to separate it from the pack of other action flicks that are pumped out regularly.
