Jake Carter and another former Marine, Luke Trapper, join forces to rescue a kidnapped girl from a gang of international criminals.
And so The Marine ends. Semper fidelis. Always.
As with the fifth one I really wasn't expecting that twist, and Mezman brought in an element of comedy that made it all the more surprising. They had a good set of villains too, with the vixen Rebecca Quin in particular, but I wish we'd had a glimpse of the big bad wolf at least. Just a glimpse.
It doesn't take place in a forest this time, nor a theme park: it's the abandoned Oregon Lake Brewery and the Shanghai Tunnels below. A massive set, though I wish they'd alternate angles so you'd see in from the outside too, since in most of the surrounding shots it all looks abandoned. Like they're filming someplace differently. Which, for certain scenes, I suppose they were.
Overall though it's another solid segment in the series, where the occasional CGI blood and lack of consistency in regard to bullet holes, marks, etc, is the only real downside. Good action, good characters, and one desperate chase against time once again. A worthy finale, though one that might've been just a little bit stronger without the comedic sidekick bit.
rated 3/5: not bad
