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.)

How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

One of the thugs hates the idea of having to drive a minivan for his getaway car. How can a car, clothes or other material possessions affect a person’s self-image?

How does the film justify vigilantism? Who are the “bad guys” in the movie? Is there ever a time when taking the law into your own hands is defensible?

How does greed affect relationships between characters in this film? What does the gang leader’s girlfriend (Abigail Bianca) feel she has to do to keep his attention? How does he value human life in comparison to the diamonds?
