Jake Carter, (Mike 'The Miz' Mizanin), is assigned to protect a "high-value package," a beautiful whistle-blower trying to expose a corrupt military defense contractor. But a heavily armed team of mercenaries has been hired to kill her, along with anyone who gets in their way, and it's going to take a fearless one-man fighting machine to stop them.
I was beginning to think the movie would never start, when it finally did. Thankfully.
Lots of action, things getting blown up and mounds of gun violence. Pretty much everything I look for in an action movie. The side story was protection detail.
I realize the main character used to be in the forces, and the title of the film makes you think war is involved or something, but it's not. This movie, and the 3 previous films, follow a marine after he gets discharged. I like this approach, as we all probably wonder what they do after they leave the service.
The female lead character I wanted to slap the crap out of, most of the time. I'm glad they kept her safe, but she was a pain in the ass.
Though it was super predictable, lots of action fans will enjoy this movie.
