12 Rounds 2: Reloaded Reviews
(2013) 12 Rounds 2: Reloaded
This sequel has nothing to do with the first movie except that both star WWE wrestlers, pointing out that you can watch this one without seeing the other. It stars Randy Orton as Nick Malloy who's an ambulance paramedic, and then coincidently, a car accident happens right on front of him and his wife while going out for a walk along a bridge. After attempting to all three of them all at the same time, one does not make it. The movie then jump to a few years later, which while on duty and assuming that someone needed an ambulance, Nick soon finds out that it was only a goose chase with the ambulance truck he was on was completely rigged with explosives. He then stumbles onto a phone from an unknown caller, ordering him to perform a specific amount of tasks- it's more like 12 tasks, get it "12 Rounds" hence the title, otherwise he'll kill his wife. Now, at this point viewers suspect that it has something to do with the beginning involving the car accident, but don't quite know what, as the movie slowly reveals a little bit more about that as the movie is progressing.
The low budget equivalent of (2007) 'Live Free Or Die Hard', and other movies with villains asking our heroes to perform specific tasks, with at the same time, making the police law enforcement, of course, incompetent. This plot device is like a dime-a-dozen, which may have worked had I not seen the others.
