Still shot from the movie: The Marine.

The Marine

John Triton (John Cena) is a discharged Marine who will stop at nothing to get his wife (Kelly Carlson) back after she is kidnapped by some trigger-happy jewel thieves. And the screenplay is equally determined to pack as much action, bullets and explosions as possible into this movie showcasing a former WWE wrestling celebrity. (Plot, however, is optional.)

Why Is The Marine Rated PG-13?

As long as viewers take this film with a large grain of salt, the over-the-top antics of an action hero bent on rescuing his wife are tolerable. Unfortunately for many families the violence factor won’t be. Characters, including innocent bystanders, are beaten, shot at close range with automatic rifles and hand-held missiles, tossed through glass windows and thrown from a moving semi. The crooks in this film also have a penchant for blowing things up like gas stations, police cruisers and fishing lodges. One fire results in a man being horrifically burned. The script contains profanities and an extreme expletive, sexual comments including references to homosexuality and child abuse, depictions of a married couple passionately kissing in their underwear and a woman dropping her clothes.
