This is the sixth movie to come from WWE Studios however what makes this one "special" this is the first sequel they've done...however, this is the third time they've done a movie with a very similar story. Now just like how "The Marine" was the movie debut for John Cena, this sequel is the acting debut for Ted Dibiase (Jr.).
Now this movie is one of those type of sequels where it has absolutely no connection to the previous movie with the exception of it being a very similar plot so don't expect to see any reference or characters you saw in the first Marine movie (sorry John Cena fans). The story here is about a man named Joe Linwood (Dibiase) who's a Marine & after coming off a mission, he decided to go on vacation with his wife Robin to an exotic island resort that's owned by a client of hers. Everything starts out nice before terrorist attack at the grand opening party & takes everyone hostage including Joe's wife. From there, Joe is determined to go in & get her but has to deal with the terrorist themselves along with other obstacles like politicians trying to not make this an international incident, a retired Army soldier who doesn't "want to be a hero", mercenaries who work for the highest price, and finding out throughout the movie that not everyone can be trusted.
As usual when it comes to sequels, they all get compared to the original. What this & the first Marine have in common is the story of a Marine being in the wrong place at the wrong time with his wife being taken hostage & with him going to save her. Besides that basis along with the involvement of certain elements that go into an action movie, that's really the only thing this movie has in common with it as Dibiase does more "acting" as far as dialog than Cena did while his character was more "realistic". There was more dept & development as far as the story itself goes along with them learning from the first film & not trying to mix bad humor in with the movie. One of the big differences here was unlike how "The Marine" had a heavy amount of their action based off explosions, the action here was more diverse as you had a minor amount of explosions with more emphasis on gunplay & fighting using the Muay Thai style.
DVD extras include deleted & extended scenes along with a montage of various deleted shots. Various "behind the scenes" features, a look at Ted Dibiase, and various takes of the Muay Thai fights complete the extras...and as a side note, I'm sorry but there are no commentary tracks. In the end, I would say that this movie was more "plot" driven than action driven unlike how the first Marine & other WWE films have been. I enjoyed other WWE films more than this one but it's still worth taking a look at so I suggest a rental & you decide from there.
