      Audience Member I'm surprised of the bad reviews because I loved this movie. Great cast and it was entertaining. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member When the entire prison stands up to applaud Douglas (Boyd Holbrook). When he's paroled. You know, you can't expect any realism or originality. Especially when Cena's character has to hand over his badge right off the bat as well. This is also before Cena's acting improved by an inch. Which doesn't say much since he still looks like "duh" in every movie. His acting here is like he is just doing a segment in the WWE. The film seems to think it is original. With three brothers who hate each other forced to spend time together. Cliches like I mentioned earlier hold it back though. As well as a cast with no chemistry. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Definitely wasn't the greatest movie of all time but it deserved more acclaim than it received. Script and plot weren't extremely original but were pretty good. Direction could've used work in some scenes but was nice overall. Definitely wasn't an A+ movie but in my opinion, it was fun. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Not half bad for a random Netflix selection. Far from perfect by multiple measures yet oddly charming in a wsay that i wasn't expecting it to be. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member Brothers go into bail bond business and get caught up in a silly kidnapping plot in this action comedy that never seems complete. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member This just sucks couldn't even finish it, it was boring and lifeless as a wet noodle Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Kalvin Henely Slant Magazine What's ironic about The Reunion is that its plot, though it revolves around a kidnapping set in Mexico, seems blind to current events. Rated: 1/4 Oct 22, 2011 Full Review Robert Abele Los Angeles Times The WWE's campaign to turn its brutes into box office deals another tepid hand with The Reunion. Rated: 2/5 Oct 21, 2011 Full Review Frank Scheck Hollywood Reporter There's one thing to be said about WWE Studios -- they're consistent. Every one of their movies designed to showcase their stable of popular wrestling stars has been a critical and commercial disaster. Oct 21, 2011 Full Review Frank Lovece Film Journal International Pro wrestler John Cena stars in a WWE film about estranged half-brothers compelled to work together to rescue a kidnap victim in this old-TV-style family adventure-drama. Oct 28, 2011 Full Review Christopher Null Filmcritic.com You know what you're getting about five minutes into The Reunion: the kind of movie that trades brains in for guns, muscles, and breasts. Rated: 2.5/5 Oct 20, 2011 Full Review Steve Persall Tampa Bay Times Cena handles rough stuff like a pro, and his poker-faced wisecracking isn't bad. But he probably shouldn't quit his day job.
