Not another WWE movie

02.15.2008
He with the once promising career has fallen. Renny Harlin, director of such solid pictures as CLIFFHANGER and DIE HARD 2 has seen his career spiral downwards, with such gone-after-a-weekend releases as MINDHUNTERS and THE COVENANT. But now he’s signed on to direct a movie for WWE, called 12 ROUNDS and starring their poor man’s Rock (not even, that’s Vin Diesel), John Cena.

The story centers on a New Orleans policeman whose girlfriend is kidnapped. I really hope they don’t try to address some sort of Katrina-related social commentary, because the only social commentary this team is capable of portraying is that a lot of really good money is being wasted on a lot of bad films. And didn’t John Cena play a tough guy whose girlfriend was also kidnapped in THE MARINE? Lets hope that what these lovers spawn skips theatres, bypasses video store shelves, avoids bargain bins, and heads right where they belong—in my dvd player!!! I’ve totally lost it.

Extra Tidbit: The budget for this film is $20 million. That breaks my heart.

*yawn*

This will movie will give all the homophobes who like watching greased up men in tiny spandex manties something to wank it to. Seriously, wasn't the wrestling crap played out by the end of the 1980's?

WWE Movies.... so so...

I have to say... WWE Movies are better than any Uwe Boll Movie. I hope there will be one again like "See no evil". It was not a good but ok horror flick.

kidnapped girl again?

Darn it, John. Looks like you'll need to keep them in your 15-foot-high steel cage...

YES!!

C'mon, the WWE Films are great to watch! They are not masterpieces of cinema, even though The Condemned is a pretty solid action flick. But they are funny, B-Level action flicks. Cena is a giant meathead and we need more of them in action movies again!

Over the past 4 years I've been watching Cena in the WWE...

that's probably the first time I've ever heard anyone call him the poor man's Rock...funny stuff.
