[[quoteright:311:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/The_Marine_2006_Unrated_Edition_DvDrip_Eng_4789.JPG]] [[JohnCena John Triton]] is a veteran marine operative who is discharged from the Iraq War, despite his best wishes to remain. He returns to his wife, who after a great big welcome home, suggests they take a vacation. Their paths cross with Rome, a diamond thief, and his cronies who are on the run from a previous heist. They steal Triton's ride and, of course, his wife. Triton must save his wife as he chases Rome through the South Carolina environment. Claimed by WWE Films to be its most successful film yet. A sequel was released on DVD starring [=Ted DiBiase Jr.=] in 2009. A third movie will be made in 2012 starring TheMiz. ---- !!This film provides examples of: * ActorAllusion: During a chase scene, after the top of Triton's car is sliced off, one of Rome's henchmen comments that Triton is like "The Terminator". Rome (Played by Robert Patrick, who played the T-1000 whose truck gets its top sliced off during a chase scene in ''Terminator2JudgmentDay'') glances at him through the mirror. * BaldOfEvil: Morgan. Also the two drug dealers in the woods. * BlackDudeDiesFirst: Lampshaded and averted. [[spoiler:He dies third.]] * BoringInvincibleHero: It's JohnCena as the starring role. What more needs to be said? * BottomlessMagazines * CarChase * TheDanza: John Cena as John Triton. * DarkActionGirl: Angela. * DieHardOnAnX: The sequel is a "''Die Hard'' on a hotel". * GunsAkimbo: Bennett during the diamond heist. * HoistByHisOwnPetard: Triton [[NeckSnap snaps Rome's neck]] with the [[ChainPain same chain]] he is attacking him with. * ImplacableMan: John, a rare heroic version. * ImprovisedWeapon: Rome attacks Triton with [[DropTheHammer a sledgehammer]] and [[ChainsawGood a chainsaw]] during their climactic fight. Triton defends himself from the latter with [[WrenchWhack a big wrench]]. * LargeHam: Robert Patrick is clearly having a ball playing Rome, and is clearly ''not'' taking the movie as seriously as Cena is. * NeverSmileAtACrocodile: After Rome shoot Vescera, alligators appear to eat his body. * NoodleIncident: Morgan and rock candy. * OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: The opening sequence has Triton freeing some comrades from captivity; when it is seemed like they are surrounded by enemies with no way out, one of them asks Triton, "How do we get around them?", Triton drops, "We don't; [[BondOneLiner We go through them.]]" He fires his gun at the camera...and the movie fast-forwards to after the incident. * SensibleHeroesSkimpyVillains: Triton's down-to-earth wife Kate wears a denim jacket, white tank top, and jeans. Bad Girl Angela wears a leather getup with a leopard top. And, if memory serves, heels. [[CombatStilettos In a swamp chase.]] [[http://www.imdb.com/media/rm2336135168/tt0419946 Compare]]. * {{Sequel}}: Got two of them, with one on the way. ** NumberedSequel: The first sequel is called The Marine 2, starring Wrestling/TedDiBiase ** WordSequel: And the third in the series will be called The Marine: Homefront, with TheMiz in the main role. * UnratedEdition: Such a labeled DVD case exists. However, the differences between it and the rated one are near-undetectable. * WhatCouldHaveBeen: The role of John Triton as played by John Cena was originally intended for StoneColdSteveAustin. ** RandyOrton was going to be in the third film, but real life marines didn't like that due to his history in the marines, and the role went to TheMiz. * WrestlerInAllOfUs: Being a WWE film, you can expect a few wrestling moves in the fight scenes. The most egregious of which is Triton chokeslamming a mook to his death; both the camera angle and the fact that the mook smashes through a wooden dock disguise the fact that Cena is [[TheUndertaker not as large as the wrestlers who usually do this move]]. ** Oddly, Cena doesn't use this move while actually wrestling. ----
