Chicago – Renny Harlin’s “12 Rounds,” starring the WWE’s John Cena and now available on Blu-Ray and DVD, is a shockingly dull affair, an action film that tries to maintain a breakneck pace but forgets that movie rollercoasters are only fun with ups And downs instead of just a numbing series of stunt sequences.
Blu-Ray Rating: 1.0/5.0 The reasonably effective Cena (although he had more to do in “The Marine”) plays a New Orleans police officer named Danny Fisher, an average cop who happens to stop a brilliant thief whose girlfriend is accidentally killed in the process. A year later, the thief has escaped from prison with only one apparent goal - enacting his revenge on Danny.
12 Rounds was released on Blu-Ray on June 30th, 2009.

The criminal mastermind unleashes a ridiculously plot-hole-filled series of challenges for our muscled hero, including stopping a moving cable car and escaping an about-to-drop elevator. »

Directed by: Renny Harlin
Running Time: 1 hr 45 mins
Due Out: June 30, 2009
Plot: To avenge the accidental killing of his girlfriend, a master thief (Gillen) kidnap’s a policeman’s (Cena) wife and forces the cop to follow twelve difficult steps to get her back before it’s too late.
Who’s It For? If destruction, explosions and fast cars sounds like the weekday afternoon of your dreams, then this Round is for you.
John Cena will do anything for love. He’ll stop an out of control streetcar, dive onto a helicopter in midair, pull a man with “unfortunate girth” through an elevator escape hatch, and even turn a fire truck into a speeding bulldozer to save the woman that means more to him than the entire city of New Orleans. That’s just a sampling of »
