Trivia

Being a WWE Film, the movie was continually promoted on all WWE programming (even E.C.W. (2006), which is owned by WWE) weeks before and after its release to help boost sales as well as John Cena's popularity. See more »

Goofs

A round from the M203 that Triton also uses in the opening sequence must travel around 15 meters before it will arm and detonate; should it stop at a shorter distance such as the inside of a room, it will bounce off whatever it hits without exploding. See more »

Le Marine: Not for the Critics
29 October 2006 | by Jessika_St0neSee all my reviews

Lemme just say this. For all of those people who are comparing this to "good" movies, remember that tastes for such things vary from person to person. I personally liked this movie. Yes, it was corny. Yes, it had 15 explosions (I counted). YES it was unrealistic, but, well, it made a nice get away. John Cena is very funny, very good at being macho, and is very wooden. I wouldn't suggest watching this movie if you're looking for something to pin a blue ribbon on. It's a funflick. No questions asked. As for Robert Patrick. I heard he enjoyed doing this movie. Who wouldn't, it would be fun.

I'd wager WWE made the thing in the first place because they had extra money to spend.

I LOVED IT!!!

Better than "Man on Fire", that's for damned sure.
