Goofs

After John Triton is discharged, he flies back to his hometown in an IranAir Boeing 747SP. The Homa tail logo is clearly visible. The archive footage used in this scene must be at least 20 years old because the plane wears the old IranAir livery (navy/dark blue stripe on the windows/fuselage, silver belly) and not the new all white fuselage paint. Also the old British Airways liveries are visible in the background. The footage is most likely to be of Runway 27R at Heathrow Airport Intl. London, U.K. See more »

Corny, but still a fun time!
2 February 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

WWE champion John Cena makes his acting debut in WWE Films' "The Marine". No matter what all the other critics say, this film is not all that bad! I grew up during the 80's watching and loving such action flicks as Commando, Cobra, Tango & Cash, Action Jackson, and The Marine is no worse than any of those cheesy 80's films we all know and love. I believe that is the appeal of this film to me!

John Cena plays a marine by the name of John Triton. After disobeying a direct command during active duty in the Middle East, he is discharged and returns home to his wife in South Carolina. Bored with his new found freedom from the service, little does he know that some unwanted action is waiting for him.

Like I mentioned before, this is a fun action flick in the vein of the old 80's action movies. A very predictable plot, but a lot of fun! Who says that every film has to be like The Lord Of The Rings, or The Godfather to be enjoyed by people on a boring Sunday afternoon. The Marine does what it was meant to, it entertains the audience with unrealistic action and explosions.

John Cena can not act outside of the squared circle. In my humble opinion, he is not even a great wrestler, so I expected his wooden acting skills. Still, in this type of movie, who cares? Van Damme can't act either, but his early films were fun like this.

Overall, I give this film a 5/10. Great for a boring rainy afternoon, and a definite must for all 80's action fans.
