When New Orleans Police Detective Danny Baxter (John Cena) stops a brilliant thief from getting away with a multimillion-dollar heist, the thief's girlfriend is accidentally killed. After escaping from prison, the criminal mastermind enacts his revenge, taunting Danny with 12 rounds of near-impossible puzzles and tasks that he must somehow complete to save the life of the woman he loves.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Renny Harlin's 12 Rounds satisfies, on the most primitive level, the expectations for a second-rate action flick. – Nathan Lee, New York Times, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Harlin makes good use of both the architecture of the city and of his formidably muscled leading man. But you will probably find yourself praying for this duel's knock-out punch to arrive long before it actually does. – Clark Collis, Entertainment Weekly, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: Heavy on stunts but light on plausibility, humor, surprise, visual ingenuity or psychological depth. – Rob Nelson, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: Wrestling star John Cena is the dead weight that drags down this brainless but energetic action picture. – Maitland McDonagh, Hollywood Reporter, Apr 23, 2009
