Consensus: Overblown in every possible way, The Marine is either so bad it's good or just really, really bad.

A happy surprise.

It's a shame that The Marine did not receive a theatrical release in Australia. Not only was much of it shot here, but as an action popcorn adventure, it has reasonable merit.

The Marine often feels like an oddball black comedy about a dysfunctional band of sociopaths, just masquerading as an action movie about one tough ex-Marine.
