WWE Studios' latest direct-to-DVD just blew up in the producers face. If you haven't saw the Marine 3; don't worry, it follows the same plot as the Marine 1, and Marine 2. Rather than having the Marine character's wife or girlfriend being stolen, we get the Marine's sister being taken this time. How recycled. The writers didn't even bother with giving the Marine a good name, they just ripped off the name of an Indy wrestler that looks like the semi popular wrestler who playing the Marine. I wouldn't say that Mike 'The Miz' Mizanin is best all-around wrestler. He's moves awkwardly in the ring, and delivers moves not so sound. Its shows in the action scenes here. Also he doesn't have the mic skills to make himself likable and the writers don't do any favors as most of the scenes he is before the kidnapping makes him look like an ass. At less, he is better than WWE first choice to star, Randy Orton was set to star as the lead role in the film. I don't think it would be wise to have a ex-marine turn wrestler who went awol to start in a movie about a Marine. I would said that Miz was at less, better than John Cena and Ted Dibiase Jr who play the Marine in previous films. Sergeant Jake Carter (Mike 'The Miz' Mizanin) of the Marine Corps' Special Operations unit has just return home to his small rural town after a dangerous covert mission in Central America that never shown up in the film nor does it show the Miz in action. What is shown is stock footage of combat that looks more like Afghanistan or a desert setting than Central America finish off with a shot of the America Flag. I really think its unused footage from the two previous films. He's looking forward to spending quality time with his two sisters, Amanda (Camille Sullivan) and Lilly (Ashley Bell). Why on earth does Jake offer booze to Lilly's boyfriend when he is driving? Anyways, the boyfriend and Lilly is captured by Jonas Pope (Neal McDonough) when Lilly and boyfriend happen to be near a weapon deal went wrong. It's really out of place. Anyways it's sad to see Neal McDonough in a straight to DVD movie because he was a pretty fine actor who start in good movies and shows like Band in Brothers, Minority Report and Captain America. If anybody delivered in this film, it was him. He made me believe that he was a former college professor turned extremist determined to unleash an elaborate terrorist attack on American soil due to the fact that he lost everything due to the economy and hate greedy corporation America. You can't help side with the villain with this. Sadly, that's what wrong with the film. If the villain makes more sense than the hero's actions. People will tend to agree with his views. I guess he was also a huge Dark Knight fan because he rob a bank, only to set it on fire AKA Joker like. Epic. The bankrupt music is very similar to the music that play in the Dark Knight's bankrupt, by the way. It's just annoying to see that. Also what awful plastic masks they are wearing during the bank heist, were they really thinking that clear plastic was going to hide their identify. Idiots. The action scenes are just not that good, but one is OK. The one on the ship, hand to hand combat. I didn't like the pointless bar action scene that never talk about again. The editing to the woods fight is bad. It seems like we was teleporting from place to place like he was Nightcrawler or something. He looks and reminds me of Tim from Braid. I have to rewind the movie a bit to figure out how he move from one place to another so quickly. At less, there wasn't any cheesy one liners from him throughout those scenes. It's not like the SWAT or police are helping him. Films like this makes these highly trained SWAT and police looks like idiots compare to the military. They get eliminated like Red Shirts against non-combat domestic terrorists. I think most people hate the cops in a way that action movies like to portray them negatively. It's only for military to patrol another country's street, but don't patrol mine, unless I need you. That kind of thinking is so wrong. Excuse me, but SWAT is just as skill as a member of a Marine Corp. Plus, a many amount of ex- Marines go into police service after serving their nation. At less, the movie only has one big explosion rather than the orgy of explosions in the first Marine. This movie wasn't too bad. Worth renting, but not buying.
