ANY movie starring Robert Patrick is extremely MALE. He is the epitome of masculine men; he seems to be making extreme masculinity his trademark. He’s tough as nails, but so tender with his wife and children. Sigh.
Wrestling champion John Cena called Robert Patrick “the roughest, toughest guy he’s ever met.”
THE best “Man Movie” has to be–
The Marine, starring John Cena and Robert Patrick!
Here is a review that says that the movie is “brimming with testosterone”-- rottentomatoes.com/m/marine/articles/1549273/
If you Google, you will find that most reviews of this movie pretty much say the same thing–a definite “guy” movie.
I agree! There are three huge fiery explosions in the film with flying bodies and car parts and signs (Coke A Cola) and bricks and glass and all kinds of explosion debris. There are dozens of smaller explosions, and at several dozen or more cars get totally destroyed–cool cars like SUVs and Cadillacs. There are several car chases, a boat chase, a truck chase, and lots of foot chases. There are dozens of fights, with sledge hammers and big guns and a huge dagger and a chainsaw. There are two beautiful women, but of course they’re not only beautiful, they’re brainy, too (just like all of us real women!). And the fast one-liners in this movie just keep coming–the best is when one of the thugs says (about the Marine, Cena’s character)–“This guy is like the Terminator!”–and Robert Patrick’s character (the villain, Rome) gives him that evil, icy blue-eyed T-1000 glare!
There’s bad language, but it isn’t drenched with filth. And there are sexy scenes, but no outright nekkid sex. And there is definitely violence, but you know that none of it’s real and all of those people are just acting.
It’s the most wonderful of guilty pleasures, a great way to utterly waste an evening! I don’t think there’s one redeeming thing about this move–it’s just like playing “war” out in the vacant lot all day with your friends when you were eight years-old!
Women like me love The Marine for two reasons: John Cena and Robert Patrick!
