I saw this movie on TV and it left me in a state of confusion. I simplycould not understand why the people making this movie, made so manymisstakes. And what was up with those opening scenes? I got Ramboflashbacks during that. I consider myself to be within the targetaudience, boys who like action movies with guns, babes, car chases,fights and so on. The problem with this movie IMO is that itunderestimates its audience. Just because we like action movies, doesnot mean we like movies with just action scenes. Nor does it mean thatyou do not have to make any sense.<br><br>10 years ago i would have thought that this movie was tha bombe. Iwould have thought that it was cool. However this is not 1999, it's2009 (yes, i know the movie is from 2006). After all the things thathave happened in the last couple of years, you simply can not show suchunbelievable stuff as getting shot at a 120 times from 3-10 meters awayduring a car chase and not get hit once (outside the Matrix of course).<br><br>This movie made me doubt myself. Have i learned so much about combattactics, guns and ammo, warfare, law enforcement, crime and humanfrailty (from watching Discovery Channel and National Geographic) thati am simply incapable of enjoying a simple action movie? After thinkinga lot about that i concluded that the answer is yes. Yes, i know tomuch to enjoy a simple action movie. And The Marine is about as simpleas it gets. A bit more work on the script to make it more logical andcoherent and this movie would have scored at least 1 more point(probably 2). I know the marines are tough guys, but i also knowmarines are not dumb. Stubborn yes, but not dumb. The marine in TheMarine is tough and dumb.<br><br>The Marine is fun to watch, but only when you have nothing else to do.If you need to kill some time, then The Marine will kill it. And youwill watch it all the way to the end because of Kelly Carlson. If youare a man you want her to be your lover or hostage. If you are a straitwoman or gay man, Kelly Carlson's hair will make you go "oh wow, lookat that, that is hot". But remember, if you want to enjoy it for morethan Kelly Carlson, dumb yourself down a bit.<br><br>I gave this movie 5 stars. 1 for Kelly Carlson and her hair, 1 forRobert Patrick and his lines, 1 for the guns, fights and explosions, 1for the cat-fight and 1 for giving me hope that one day someone willgive me a multimillion dollar budget to make my own action movie.
