    Well the flims can't be any worse than the films


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,449 ✭✭✭glenjamin


    Only one I've watched was See No Evil staring Kane and I thought it was decent enough.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,391 ✭✭✭D2D


    Saw most of them

    See no Evil - didn't see
    The Marine - meh, could've been a hell of a lot better
    The Condemned - Pretty good
    Behind enemy lines:Columbia - OK
    12 rounds - I thought it was awful


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 5,083 ✭✭✭waltersobchak


    i actually thought Walking Tall was a pretty decent flick.. worth a watch anyway


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 5,588 ✭✭✭JP Liz


    I enjoyed 12 Rounds :D

    I'd recommend "12 Rounds", actually. It was a decent action flick, with a good enough budget and script. Cena's acting has gotten much better since the atrocious "The Marine" (WWE's worst film; even worse than the pathetic "Behind Kennedy Lines")... I reckon if you didn't tell someone that Cena was a wrestler they'd just think it was another action flick, which is a huge boon if you think about it.

    I thought "The Condemned" was good. Great location, interesting storyline that plays to SCSA's strengths. Even though it borrowed heavily from other films, I enjoyed it start to finish. I'd recommend seeing 12 Rounds and the Condemned.

    Haven't built up the courage to watch "Damage" or "The Marine 2" yet as I reckon they're both awful. From the trailer Ted Jr. looks like a horrible actor.

    I've tried very hard to watch "End Game" starring Kurt Angle and Jenna Morasca but it's one of the worst films I've ever seen. The acting is awful, the production is in the toilet, and the script and story progression is something a(n untalented) high-schooler would put together. Awful, just awful. It's more painful than watching Morasca's Victory Road performance - at least you can laugh at that!

    Yeah No Holds Barred is savage!

    I felt 12 Rounds was rip-off of Die Hard: With a Vengeance


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,317 ✭✭✭✭callaway92


    Saw most of them

    See no Evil - ****e
    The Marine - ****e
    The Condemned - ****e Ending
    Behind enemy lines:Columbia - Useless
    12 rounds - Poopy

    FYP

    what does FYP mean?

    I think it means fixed your post. Was wondering what it ment myself until I saw 12 rounds as "poopy"


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,317 ✭✭✭✭callaway92


    actually people, just in case nobody has seen it before, "The Marine" starring John Cena is on Film 4 tonight at 00:45 but it is on +1 as well..not that I recommend anyone to watch it or atin though :D


  • Registered Users Posts: 416 ✭✭Whiplash


    Damage is a way better film than the condemed imo. prob cos its nothing to do with wwe films. check it out. its worthy of a cinema release, shame it went direct to dvd


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,457 ✭✭✭Cactus Col


    Yeah ... Damage is surprisingly decent.

    as for WWE films though .... I enjoyed See No Evil for the schlock it was.

    The Condemned would have been a much better film if it wasn't constantly lecturing at us.

    The Marine was awful.

    12 Rounds was terrible, but I had higher hopes for it because it had a bit of a name director attached. Unfortunately it that director's name was Renny Harlin.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,492 ✭✭✭EdK


    Saw the Marine 2 last night, DiBiase isn't as forced as Cena. Not a bad effort to be honest it's a decent action film


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 22,905 ✭✭✭✭Handsome Bob


    I've seen See No Evil and Walk Tall, thought the former was okay but I felt the latter was very good indeed.

    Anyone have any idea about what films they have in the pipeline?

    I think there's 2 films still to come

    Big Show is in the next one. It's called Knucklehead and John Cena is begining filming his next film called "Brother's Keeper"


  • Registered Users Posts: 230 ✭✭DHYNZY


    condemned was good fun, as was walking tall. hated see no evil.

    i dont think these films were made to be taken as ground-breaking cinematics.. just a laugh to enjoy with some popcorn!


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,165 ✭✭✭Wompa1


    Why did you knock the tower....cus it was blocking my sun....liked Condmened mindless violence


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,689 ✭✭✭sky88


    the condemnand was a really good film none have intrested to even watch them

    I know its not a WWE movie but Stone Colds next flick The Expendables looks all kinds of awesome..


  • Posts: 14,344 ✭✭✭✭ [Deleted User]


    Looks like Austin has a pretty minor role in that film, by the looks of the ad...?


    A three minute ad though. I've no idea why films do that. If a film ad is anymore than 20 seconds they usually show you every half-decent bit in it, and pretty much give you the entire story and a good idea how it ends, leaving you pretty underwhelmed when you actually see it. Thats my opinion anyway. Although that's very off topic.


    Anywho...


    See No Evil was the first film of WWE's that i seen. Expected it to be pretty crappy, but it wasn't too bad. A little on the silly side though (I thought Kane's parts were OK, but a lot of the stuff with just the kids on their own just seemed like real filler stuff to me, where they tried to mention sex and drugs as much as they possibly could, and also thought it was a little silly that they have one (disabled) guard for, what was it, eight prisoners? little odd to say the least).


    The Condemned was better I thought, and much more watchable. I think they made Austin a little TOO invincible in it though, which kinda hurt it for me, as the film was really taking itself seriously for the most part.

    Don't think I've seen any of the others, though I've been considering watching the Marine. I don't like Cena's face, odd as it may sound. He just looks really hammy or something. Everytime he delivers a serious line, it just seems so... I don't know... as though he was appearing in a parody of a film or something.

    For example, in the ads for The Marine, on RAW they always showed a clip of him talking to some guy, and he just turns around and, really, really seriously, looks straight at the guy and exclaims... "I'm a marine", and the guy has a real look of shock on his face over it. Just seems so over the top.

    Yeah im not too sure how much he'll be in it.. it could be a similar amount to his role in The Longest Yard, but its a pretty large ensembled cast so id imagine he wont be in it too much

    Granted it wont win any Oscars,but some of the fight scenes near the end were vicious enough!


  • Registered Users Posts: 685 ✭✭✭Cactus Colm


    Sorry to ressurect an old thread ... but I saw Steve Austin's Hunt To Kill the other day ... and I tell you, it was a great B movie. Probably doesn't have half the production values of The Marine (1 and 2) or 12 Rounds, but was far more entertaining than any of those. Also features Eric Roberts and Gary Daniels (both of whom were in the Expendables) and a couple of other familiar faces (colonel tigh from bsg!).

    With this, Expendables, and Damage, I think Austin is actually putting out some pretty decent films.

  • Moderators, Entertainment Moderators Posts: 12,013 Mod ✭✭✭✭jaykhunter


    Haven't seen it yet as still have Damage and The Stranger on the backlog. I think it's because it's another Austin action flick. Heard decent enough things about Hunt to Kill. Does anyone else hear "Shoot to Thrill" by AC/DC every time they read that?


  • Registered Users Posts: 685 ✭✭✭Cactus Colm


    Got River of Darkness on at the moment.

    It stars Kurt Angle, Kevin Nash, Sid Vicious, and Ray "Glacier" Lloyd!

    And it's awful! Late night horrorthon awful.

    WWE has signed Eric McCormack of "Will and Grace" fame to star in their latest film Barricade, according to Hollywood Reporter. The movie will be directed by Andrew Currie, and is listed as a supernatural thriller. The film will not feature a WWE wrestler. To read more on the story, visit HollywoodReporter.com. [Thanks to Dot Net reader Rocky from Fresno]

    Powell's POV: The movie will begin shooting in Vancouver next month. There's no word yet on whether any WWE talent will have smaller roles, but the story stated that no wrestlers will be featured in starring roles. It's an interesting move by WWE. They can still give the movie the usual hype on their television shows, and it's possible that the lack of WWE talent will lead critics and some movie goers to take it more seriously. Of course, the concern is that the WWE audience won't be as receptive to the movie if they don't have a WWE wrestler attached to it.


    Good move by WWE IMO.

    Clearly you forgot The Chaperone.I believe it was the funniest field trip of the year or last years knockout comedy Knucklehead. Seriously I just wished wwe stopped making films & keep there eyes on the product instead of trying to win elections or make money on crap movies so bad Tv3 wouldn't show them at 4:20 in the morning.
