An OK flick which mimics a number of others with similar plots.

This movie takes place in New Orleans. It's about a police detective named Danny Fisher stopping a couple of thieves from a heist and even though he busts the thieves unfortunately the thieve's girlfriend ends up getting killed by a truck. So the main villain Miles Jackson tells him Danny Fisher I will remember you. One year later Fisher's wife goes missing and Miles makes up play a game called twelve rounds which is a game where you race against the clock, completing the tasks on time before the time is up. If you complete the task the people are saved if not they're killed. So Danny and Molly in the final round fight with Miles inside a helicopter in the air. So Danny and Molly kick Miles towards the controllers and jump off leaving him to die in a exploded helicopter and then they land in somebody's else swimming pool.

I'd rather watch 24 hours of back-to-back Doodlebops than sit through this movie a second time. Simply awful.

Skip It – 12 Rounds (2009) 108 min. I nominate Special Agent George Aiken as being the worst law enforcer since Inspector Clouseau. The man has rocks in his head. He orders snipers to shoot into a crowded bus to bring down the villain?!? Speaking of “rocks in one’s head”, what makes John Cena believe that he could act. His facial expressions go from dead pan to snear to dead pan again. He looks like the Hulk-version of Matt Damon. Now to the film. This is the worst thought out story I’ve ever seen. Nothing makes any sense including the impossible game-like set-up created by the villain, Miles Jackson, for his nemesis, Detective Danny Fisher (John Cena), the police officer who sent him to jail. And when exactly did he plant all the clues and technology needed for this cat and mouse game after he escaped jail? I wondered if the writers and director sat down and read the script to discover that none of this is possible. The title refers to the twelve things Fisher must do to save his wife from the bad guy. It’s “Saw” meets “Action Jackson”. Probably the best thing about the film is that it gave much needed business to the Big 3 auto makers – a slew of cars were destroyed in the action. What a mess!!!

Det. Danny Fisher: I'm training the world's most dominant pug. He's going through a bulking phase.
