The Marine 2 – DVD review

April 15, 2010   ·   0 Comments

marine2-tmb2First of all let me start off saying, for some strange reason this game almost felt like I was watching my son playing on Modern Warfare 2. I have no idea why but the plot, action shots and the music score gave the film a game feel. This to me was a little off putting but for my 15 year old son this made the film that much more enjoyable.

The Marine 2 has the usual action movie plot. Good guy comes from war, falls into the arms of his beautiful wife, along come the bad guys and all hell breaks loose.

WWE superstar Ted Debiase plays American Marine Joe Linwood, and to honest he really pulls it off, this was a pleasant surprise and his size and physical appearance really made the character a lot more believable.

The action through out the film is none stop. Some of the special effects were nothing more than spectacular, loads of massive explosions that shook the surround sound system, bullet shots that ripped through bodies like a hot knife through butter and several awesome fight scenes. One of the main advantages using Debiase (A WWE pro-wrestler) in this style of movie is that he knows how to take a beating and carry on for some more and believe me when I say this, he really did take some heavy hits and falls.

There are not really any negatives for this movie. It is what it is; its an all American action movie. Its never going to win an Oscar, the acting is not out of this world and the plot is nothing special but if youre a fan of explosions, gun battles, amazing fight sequences and of course Ted DiBiase then this film is one thats well worth adding to your collection.
