I didn't much care for the first "12 Rounds" movie, finding it flat and not very exciting. So when I sat down to watch this next entry, I was expecting it to be even worse than the original movie. But I have to admit that I was surprised. Yes, this sequel does have some problems, not just with the awkward title imposed on the front of the Blu-ray box ("12 Rounds 2"????) The main problem with this movie is that a lot of key linking footage, as well as entire scenes, seem to be missing here and there. Also, the ending is kind of abrupt. Still, there's a lot to enjoy here. The production values are generally pretty good for a movie that bypassed theaters. Randy Orton, though not a great actor, does seem to be trying, and he makes his character sympathetic enough. The main selling point of the movie is its relentlessness - once the crisis starts, there's barely a lull in the action and intensity. I'm not saying that this movie is a GREAT movie, but you'll likely find it better than you might be expecting, and it passes its 94 minutes with a certain briskness.
