Playing With Fire [Movie Review]

Playing With Fire, John Cena, John Leguizamo, Comedy, Family, Movie Review by Rawlins, Rawlins GLAM
Another wrestler doing a movie? Ok. 

I watched the movie while waiting for the MRT - just to kill the time and I have no expectation whatsoever for the movie.

Was it worth it?

In one particular fire incident, Jake saves 3 kids from a burning cabin and have to house them until their family members pick them up. Jake is not a kid-friendly person as he is very job-oriented and his work is his life. And as he is in the midst of applying for the division commander post, all he has in his mind is to deliver the job well - no room for kids whatsoever.

Kids being kids and having three turned out to be quite a handful for Jake and his crew. 

Will Jake able to accept the kids in his life?
Will Jake able to land the job?

MY REVIEW
Plot: 2.0/ 5.0 Oh my. Where should I start? It is so very predictable. So predictable - no surprises at all.

Cast: 2.5/ 5.0 Can we stop putting these wrestlers that can't act in films or playing the main character? 

Will I Watch It Again: No. It was a total waste and I need my 96 minutes back.
