Ted DiBiase is the one reason to see this one.
9 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie, like The Marine, is brought to you by the WWE. The first film was to introduce wrestling superstar John Cena to action movies. Marine 2 follows by bringing in WWE's young powerhouse Ted DiBiase, Jr. as the next hero in this sequel. Cena played his jarhead all muscle and stunt work, but DiBiase is a whole nother kind of cat.

DiBiase is pro wrestling royalty, being the son of Ted DiBiase, Sr., the so-called "Million Dollar Man." The young DiBiase does his dad proud with a great performance and excellent fighting skills. In shirtless scenes, DiBiase - with the ripped body of a professional athlete – establishes his physical presence and the film never really strays from showcasing him.

DiBiase plays a Marine sniper whose last mission turned out bad and Lara Cox is his very hot wife. He plans to get some needed R & R at the plush tropical resort in the Philippines where his wife works, but instead, when terrorists attack, he has to fight his way out to rescue her and the other hostages. The plot shamelessly rips off "Die Hard," but the locations are beautiful, the women are gorgeous and there's cold blooded action throughout the film -- and DiBiase is all about the action in this movie. In one long fight scene against two ninja assassins, DiBiase matches them hold for hold, taking out each one with some deadly wrestling moves of his own.

The scenery is beautiful and there are more wild shootouts, explosions and evil villains for any one movie. What more could you ask for? DiBiase puts in a good first effort here. Tough, likable and built for action, he could go places. Hopefully his next movie will give him a better chance to show us what he's got.
