From what I've read, the people who HAVE seen this say it's pretty darn good, and it sounds like this won't get rail-roaded like previous WWE films.

(Feel free to move to the TV & Movies Section if need be).

That looks pretty cool. it reminds me of the book/manga/movie Battle Royal except it has grownup convicts instead of 8th graders.

I'm seeing a trend in the WWE Movies that isn't going to help them any. They keep having the main characters that you are supposed to care about be complete assholes or criminals.

Is THIS how the WWE sees it's viewers?

In SEE NO EVIL, the character you ended up caring about was Kane. He was the real 'victim' when you consider the whole plot, and in THE MARINE, well... it's John Cena, so I didn't give a crap about him, and now we get THE CONDEMNED with the characters all being convicts.

This just seems really stupid to me.

Well, at least the trailer separates it enough from RUNNING MAN comparisons.

And, I dont care, I miss seeing Stone Cold on TV. So, this may be a good thing.

At least in this example, the IMDB description of the movie references a "corrupt" Central American prison, so it sounds like the character is going to be wrongly accusing and having to fight for his freedom. That's defintely a sympathetic character to viewers.

If that's the case, then it's ONE movie that makes this "trend" since you don't care about John Cena. Not really a trend.

I stand by what I typed. I'm POSITIVE that if THE MARINE had starred ANYONE other then John Cena, it would have made more money.

I see why they hired a new Marketing guy. The quality of their merchandise has dropped off so much in the past few years.
