The Reunion has no pretensions of originality, and maybe that's just fine. It's relaxing to watch formula roll in front of you if that formula is engaged with affection, and that's the case here, much to the credit of the writer and director, Mike Pavone. Read full review
Cena handles rough stuff like a pro, and his poker-faced wisecracking isn't bad. But he probably shouldn't quit his day job. Read full review
A lame action-comedy that seems ready made for undiscerning late-night cable viewing. Read full review
The "Midnight Run" meets "Bonanza" idea isn't exactly a terrible one, but writer-director Mike Pavone has only one point-and-shoot gear, whether the scene is light comedy, dysfunctional family drama or western-tinged gunplay. (Even television shows these days exhibit more directorial flair and editing variety.) Read full review
The resultant smorgasbord is a misshapen mess, short on humor, tension, or chemistry among its bickering protagonists. Read full review
The action is wan, the laughs hard to come by. Read full review
Importing WWE's brand of hokey fighting--the most memorable scene, during which Cena jumps from a ledge onto a helicoper, recalls in-the-ring rope-jumping than anything else--into a place where there is an alarming amount of real bloodshed seems unnecessary and somewhat imperious. Read full review
Mainly for those who are already infatuated with Cena's stoic, Mount Rushmore-esque countenance and who do not find the idea of the big lug leaping off the edge of a cliff onto an airborne helicopter's landing gear remotely absurd. Read full review
The only real reason to see this movie is to show unwavering loyalty to Cena. And even so, he'll never know if you wait to watch it on cable for free.

Wrestler turned actor (so to speak) Cena is built like a cinder block and has range to match; Embry compensates by capering like a blaxploitation pimp. Read full review
