Critics Consensus: Overblown in every possible way, The Marine is either so bad it's good or just really, really bad.

The Marine subscribes to the notion that there's no such thing as a gratuitous explosion.

The Marine often feels like an oddball black comedy about a dysfunctional band of sociopaths, just...

A delectably bad '80s-style actioner.

WWE star is no Rock; violent actioner falls flat.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie pushes the envelope for PG-13 violence, with pretty much nonstop action, including plenty of fights, explosions, and injuries/deaths. Weapons include guns, knives, hammers, cars (as both assault and explosive devices), and a chainsaw. Bodies crash through walls and windows, burn, and blow up. Potentially disturbing images include a badly burned villain, a drowning wife, and action scenes that involve shot-up, bloody bodies. Other stuff to watch out for: An early sex scene between the hero and his wife shows them in their underwear, her legs around him as she sits on the kitchen counter. One character uses "f--k," and all the villains use other foul language. A couple of scenes show manly men drinking beer.
