12 Rounds – DVD Review

12 Rounds dvd cover

I love movies like this! Maybe it’s the kick-ass action. Maybe it’s the over-the-top villain. Maybe it’s the mindless escapism a flick like this has to offer. No matter how you look at it, 12 Rounds is an action-packed film starring John Cena (The Marine, WWE) that hits all the right clichés and manages to entertain at the same time.

If you’re looking for a film with deep and thought-provoking meaning, you’ll have to look elsewhere. This is for folks who like action flicks. If you enjoyed Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in The Rundown or Cena in The Marine, then this is a must-see movie.

The DVD includes both the rated and unrated versions of the film, which means you get more stuff that the ‘ol MPAA said wasn’t decent enough to have in a PG-13 cut of the film. The bonus features include:

Commentary by Director Renny Harlin (Unrated Version ONLY)

Commentary by Writer Daniel Kunka and John Cena (Unrated Version ONLY)

A Crash Course: John Cena Stunts

An exciting look at the wide variety of stunts and action sequences used in the film. See how John Cena worked with the stunt crew to do ALL of his own stunts.

Never-Before-Cena Gag Reel

Alternate Endings

How could the film have ended? Was it all a dream? Were aliens involved? Watch to find out.

For adrenaline-pumping action, 12 Rounds is just the thing to pass the time on a long summer day.
