Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment and WWE Studios have officially announced that they will release a combo pack edition of Scott Wiper's The Marine 3: Homefront (2013), starring Neal McDonough, Ashley Bell and Michael Eklund. The release will be available for purchase online and in stores across the nation on March 5th.
WWE superstar Mike "The Miz" Mizanin delivers a knock-out performance in the most explosive, action-packed Marine adventure yet. After returning to his hometown on leave, Sgt. Jake Carter learns that his sister has been abducted by a band of violent extremists. To save her, Carter launches a daring one-man assault on their base of operations...only to discover the group's ruthless leader is plotting a deadly terrorist strike. With time running out, Carter realizes he's the only man who can stop the impending massacre -- but this American hero may have to make the ultimate sacrifice to save thousands of innocent lives.
Showcasing one tough cast, THE MARINE 3: HOMEFRONT stars Mike "The Miz" Mizanin (WWE Superstar), Neal McDonough (Captain America, Justified), and Ashley Bell. In preparation for the film, "The Miz" trained one-on-one with several production personnel, including stunt coordinator Ernest Jackson, armorer Robert Fournier and military advisor Darrion Holiwell. The movie was directed by Scott Wiper (The Condemned) and filmed in Vancouver, Mission and Maple Ridge, B.C.
The first one was a cheesy good time with an entertaining performance by Robert Patrick as the villain. The second one was an ok B-action flick with forgettable characters. I'm sure I'll be checking this one out eventually, though it's kind of annoying how none of these so-called sequels are in any way related to each other (or the first one).
