The WWE's campaign to turn its brutes into box office deals another tepid hand with The Reunion.
There's one thing to be said about WWE Studios -- they're consistent. Every one of their movies designed to showcase their stable of popular wrestling stars has been a critical and commercial disaster.
If John Cena wants to follow in the footsteps of fellow wrestler-turned-actor Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, he might want to learn to smile. Or at least to pick better material than "The Reunion."
Frequently ludicrous and cheerfully inept, Michael Pavone's action comedy does manage to eke out a few drops of slapdash charm.
"The Reunion" has no pretensions of originality, and maybe that's just fine.
A split personality action comedy that fails to please either impulse. The action is wan, the laughs hard to come by.
Pro wrestler John Cena stars in a WWE film about estranged half-brothers compelled to work together to rescue a kidnap victim in this old-TV-style family adventure-drama.
What's ironic about The Reunion is that its plot, though it revolves around a kidnapping set in Mexico, seems blind to current events.
You know what you're getting about five minutes into The Reunion: the kind of movie that trades brains in for guns, muscles, and breasts.
