New Orleans Police Office Danny Fisher (John Cena) intercepts the getaway car of wanted terrorist Miles Jackson and his fiance. During the pursuit, Jackson’s fiancee is killed and Miles vows revenge. A year later, Jackson manages to bust of out prison and promptly kidnaps Fisher’s wife forcing Danny to play a sadistic game of "12 rounds" to win her back.
You’ll have seen this movie before in the guise of Die Hard With A Vengeance which has an almost identical storyline. Of course, this is all just an excuse for a series of set pieces to show off WWE wrestler John Cena, not a bad thing by any means given the guy can actually act. Overall, this is a big noisy enjoyable action flick, far better than previous efforts from the same wrestling stable.
