The original Marine seemed to have a pretty good ending to it, one that didnâ€™t really necessitate a sequel. Where WWE Superstar John Cena was in the original film, Ted DiBiase (son of the famed â€œMillion Dollar Manâ€) is heading up this one. Joe Linwood (DiBiase) has to save eir wife after a party that both are attending is broken up by a terrorist sect. Stranded without any assistance from anyone or anything â€“ save for eir own skills and weaponry â€“ Joe has to attempt to save all hostages and soundly defeat the terrorists.
There are a few additional special features that viewers can take in to make their Marine 2 experience all the more fulfilling. This means that there is a montage of all the different deleted scenes from the movie (â€œMaking The Cutâ€), along with a set of scenes that were restored to their full runtime. The other featurettes present go into deep detail about significant bits and pieces of the film./ For example, the choreography and pacing for the final fight is captured in â€œVillage Virtuosoâ€, where the creative process behind making viewers care about DiBiaseâ€™s back story in much the same way they did with John Cenaâ€™s is illuminating.
The added room that Fox and WWE Studios had to work with The Marine 2 (the filmâ€™s R rating and lack of MPAA oversight) ensure that this film is everything that the first Marine film was unable to be. Viewers that are attempting to find a heady piece of cinema will not find solace in The Marine 2, but this title will be appreciated by a good beat-em-up film in the vein of early Die Hard films.
