John Cena is back on the big screen in the movie 12 Rounds. Director Renny Harlin is back, too. You may remember Renny Harlin most for directing his then wife, Geena Davis, in the movie box office bomb “Cutthroat Island,” (way back in 1995).
Renny Harlin’s best movie to date, however, is the 1993 Sylvester Stallone thriller “Cliffhanger.”
In the movie “12 Rounds,” detective Danny Baxter (John Cena) discovers his girlfriend (Ashley Scott) has been kidnapped by a ex-con tied to Baxter’s past, and he’ll have to successfully complete 12 challenges in order to secure her safe release.
