The Marine is a 2006 American action film directed by John Bonito. The film stars John Cena, Robert Patrick and Kelly Carlson. In Iraq, United States Marine infantryman Master Gunnery Sergeant John Triton (John Cena) is closing in on an al-Qaeda hideout. Disregarding direct orders to wait for reinforcement, Triton attacks the extremists and rescues the hostages. The next morning, his colonel informs Triton that he is being honorably discharged. Home from Iraq, Triton finds it hard to settle back in to normal life. He is fired from his job as a security guard for using excessive force on an employee's ex-boyfriend and his bodyguards. Triton's wife Kate (Kelly Carlson) decides the two need a vacation to help Triton adjust to his new life. Meanwhile, criminal Rome (Robert Patrick) robs a jewelry store with his gang: girlfriend Angela (Abigail Bianca), Morgan (Anthony Ray Parker), Vescera (Damon Gibson), and Bennett (Manu Bennett).
