Pro-wrestler John Cena makes a comeback to the big screen after his incredibly bad flop The Marine
. 12 Rounds
has a similar plot as Marine
, with Cena as a New Orleans detective tracking down an insane Irish terrorist who's kidnapped his girlfriend. Now he must complete 12 impossible tasks if he wishes to save his girl. The movie is flawed and implausible, but it has a secret weapon: director Renny Harlin (Die Hard 2
, The Long Kiss Goodnight
). Harlin is well aware of how to film an action scene, and when all else fails, that's what this movie does very well. Fans of Cena will most likely not be disappointed, as he is given a much better chance to shine as an actor, and other action fans may get a kick out of it too.
