  • The plot of the movie is simplistic and there are definitely a lot of explosions, ranging from a gas station to a marina
  • But, Cena's personality carries the film and I found myself watching every minute of it without moving from my couch

  • Overall though, when I think about all the movies I've seen that star pro-wrestlers, this one is definitely one of the better ones out there and I would definitely recommend it to people

      him once. I know he was using a bullet proof vest as a shield but, again, a little unrealistic to believe it caught every bullet.

      Overall though, when I think about all the movies I’ve seen that star pro-wrestlers, this one is definitely one of the better ones out there and I would definitely recommend it to people.
