Definitely powerful and intense
17 September 2017 | by nims-1975See all my reviews

I saw this sequel to the original 12 Rounds film starring John Cena and I thought that this film was in between very good and excellent. The film had some excellent acting by Randy Orton as Nick Malloy, Tom Stevens as Tommy Weaver, Brian Markinson as the psychotic malicious killer Heller, Venus Terzo as McKenzie and Cindy Busby as Sarah Malloy. While Randy Orton wasn't nearly as good as John Cena was in the first film, he really does do an awesome performance as Paramedic Nick Malloy and the acting in this film by Randy Orton was excellent and I think that he should do some more film acting for thrillers with action and violence, because he looks good for the role of a U.S Police Officer, Emergency Paramedic etc. 12 Rounds 2: Reloaded was awesome and was filled with some very tense action and suspense. There were explosions, chases, lots of hard gripping action and there were some awesome fight scenes which showed Randy fight very well. The action in this film was fast and the fight scenes in this film were very powerful which was awesome. I thought this film was awesome but its not as good as the original 12 Rounds, but it definitely is a wicked film. Besides having watched 12 Rounds starring John Cena many times, I have also watched this film 12 Rounds 2: Reloaded starring Randy Orton many times because I also love watching this film and find it enjoyable to watch. I haven't seen the 3rd part 12 Rounds 3: Lockdown starring Jonathan Good aka Dean Ambrose, yet but I have seen clips of that film and this film 12 Rounds 2: Reloaded looks better and i think is much better than that film. I would give this a rating of 9 to 9.5 out of 10.
