The UK theatrical release is cut by 15 seconds. The distributor chose to remove focus on a bloodied knife used to stab a man and close-up focus on the bloodied face of a woman after she has been hit by a van. These cuts were made to achieve a 12A classification, and were in accordance with BBFC Guidelines and policy. The certificate was raised to 15 for the DVD and passed uncut. See more »
John Cena, who should stick to the wrestling ring, does in 12 ROUNDS what boils down to a reprise of his character from THE MARINE. The plot is also the same, which has Cena once again chasing after his kidnapped wife. The actress playing the wife even looks like the wife from THE MARINE. The only difference is this time, Cena must match wits with an IRA type who puts Cena through a series of improbable tasks to save her. The film is of the shaky camera and CGI variety, and it frankly isn't as heart-pounding as THE MARINE. This is partly because we've seen it all before, and because the tasks Cena must undertake are completely unbelievable. Plus the acting is sub par. The flick also is highly derivative of past flicks like DIE HARD, PHONE BOOTH, DIRTY HARRY, CELL PHONE and LETHAL WEAPON, among others.
