"Paramedic Nick Malloy (Orton) is plunged into a deadly game of cat and mouse when he receives a terrifying phone call from a vengeful psychopath (Brian Markinson) connected to his past. The maniac threatens to unleash a murder spree unless Nick can complete a series of 12 challenges without involving the cops or missing a single deadline. With no time to spare - and his own wife's life on the line - Nick must piece together cryptic clues and hunt down the killer before it's too late!"
That's the premise of 12 Rounds 2: Reloaded, which was released direct to Blu-ray and DVD by Fox Home Video. If you've seen the original 12 Rounds movie, then you already have a basic idea of the storyline. In 12 Rounds 2: Reloaded, Randy Orton stars as Nick Malloy, a paramedic who just tries to do his job, but ends up in trouble because of it. Nick (and his wife Sarah) witness a car accident, which leaves both drivers alive but the wife of one of the drivers (Heller, played by Brian Markinson) dead. One year later, Heller decides to get revenge on Nick for not saving his wife.
Heller pulls Nick into a deadly game of 12 rounds in which Nick must complete 12 tasks, each with a deadline. If he misses a deadline or involves the authorities in any way, his wife Sarah dies. Sound familiar? If you've seen the original 12 Rounds, then you already know the story. Although, 12 Rounds 2: Reloaded is sort of a sequel to the original, it doesn't add to or continue the first movie's story. Instead, it's a remake of the original story, just with a different lead character. Still, this edition is a bit better with a bit more edge to it.
Released on both Blu-ray and DVD, the Blu-ray is actually a combo pack that includes a Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital copy of the movie. Bonus features include: Randy Orton Reloaded; Locations: from Heller's Lair to the Sugar Factory; The Action of 12 Rounds 2: Reloaded; and Audio Commentary with Director Roel Reine and Film Editor Radu Ion.
So should you watch this movie? Well, that depends. If you're a fan of action films, then you may or may not like. If you've seen the original 12 Rounds film and enjoyed that, then you'll enjoy 12 Rounds 2: Reloaded. And if you're a fan of Randy Orton and/or WWE, then you'll probably enjoy the film as well.
