"12 Rounds" is an action film about a cop and his wife, who are subjected to the psychotic schemes and ramblings, of a hardened criminal that targets the pair, due to the accidental death of his girlfriend, at the police officerís hands.

Bent on revenge, he breaks out of prison, stalks, kidnaps and terrorizes the police officerís wife, while demanding the cop accomplishes a number of deadly, deranged tasks in 12 rounds of sadistic play, lest he kills her.

John Cena

This film stars WWE wrestler, John Cena, who is a modern day, Arnold Schwartzenegger in looks and physique. It is uncanny how much he recalls Arnold in his hay day as an action star.

Wrestling is very popular in America, often selling out arenas on tour. However, "12 Rounds" is another WWE production, packed with very violent, questionable scenes and language that limits the audience it garners, resulting in a lower box office. It was the same story with its predecessor "The Marine." The production quality and acting are fine - it's the content that's the problem.
