12 Rounds

Synopsis: WWE Superstar John Cena (The Marine) stars as Fisher, a New Orleans police officer playing a vicious game of cat and mouse after spoiling the multi-million dollar heist plan of an Irish arms dealer. When the thief’s girlfriend is accidentally killed in the melee he vows revenge, breaking out of prison and putting Fisher through a series of mental and physical challenges in order to save his kidnapped fiancée. With the clock ticking, Danny struggles to keep his focus as he races through The Big Easy completing each dangerous game and hoping he is still standing at the end of 12 Rounds.

Directed by action auteur Renny Harlin (Die Hard 2, Deep Blue Sea), 12 Rounds features supporting performances from Ashley Scott (“Jericho,” Walking Tall) and Aidan Gillen (“The Wire”).

Standard DVD Specs:
The 12 Rounds Single-disc DVD is presented in widescreen format, 2.35:1 aspect ratio with English 5.1 Dolby Surround and Spanish and French Dolby Surround, along with English and Spanish subtitles. The disc includes all these special features :

o Rated and extended “Extreme Cut” of the film
o Commentary by Director Renny Harlin, Writer Daniel Kunka and John Cena
o Two alternate endings
o “Crash Course: John Cena Stunts” featurette
o “Never-before-seen Cena gag reel” featurette

My Thoughts: Nice film, great action, in the Die Hard: With a Vengeance kind of genre. Not much can be said of the acting (Cena being wooden thru and thru) but suspense-wise this is an entertaining flick. The twist at the end is especially interesting!

My Recommendation: This is a guy-flick through and through. So give it to them to watch while you go shopping!
