12 Rounds (2009)
Critic Consensus: Energetic but empty, 12 Rounds' preposterous plot hurtles along at a rapid pace, but can't disguise the derivative script.

Critic Reviews for 12 Rounds
Heavy on stunts but light on plausibility, humor, surprise, visual ingenuity or psychological depth.
There's a decent little action movie somewhere inside '12 Rounds': a bit more complexity of character, a few more jokes and a hero who doesn't look like a two-by-four with a buzz cut might have gone a long way.
12 Rounds is an occasionally exciting but always empty action movie experience.
12 Rounds is the unholy stepchild of Die Hard with a Vengeance and Speed, starring a man whose lack of range makes Steven Seagal seem nuanced by comparison.
The future of vacuous action movies is clearly with the likes of Cena, humans who resemble characters from video games, albeit without the acting chops.
Audience Reviews for 12 Rounds
12 Rounds is full of energy but doesn't pack the right amount of punch. The film's tacky acting and loose storyline could only push it so far, but not far enough to go the distance. 2.5/5
Another action film from the WWE stable, and an enjoyable enough one at that. Following a recurring theme from many decent action films a young detective is given a set of tasks to complete if he wants to see his girlfriend ever again, by a nasty villain out for revenge. Predictable yes, but the stunts and chases just keep coming and action doesn't let up for long. One for action fans to enjoy at least.
Rubbish, rubbish, garbage, rubbish... shit
