This was actually good, in a 80's throwback sort of way. Cena has more screen charisma than I thought. I have never seen him as a wrestler but I enjoyed this. I am actually stunned, first that I watched it and second that I really liked it. Robert Patrick as the villian was great. He had me rolling with his one liners, I liked the inside joke about the Terminator... The extra's on the DVD were pretty cool as well giving background about Cena. I really had no idea who he was, as I don't watch WWE...

How come the rated DVD has a commentary but the unrated DVD does not

I thought the extras were mostly EPK fluff. Alot of the featurettes were just repeating the same things over and over.

I enjoyed this at the cinema and enjoyed it on DVD! Got the unrated version and the most difference is on the rescue at the beginning.
Still, it's got some good explosions and Patrick is having fun in it.

What's stupid about this DVD is there is a PG-13 only DVD and the Unrated DVD which also has the PG-13 cut.

I bit the bullet and bought BOTH PG-13 and Unrated DVDs(because indeed on the back of PG-13 it said it included the commentary,I opened it up and BOO YAH.......NO COMMENTARY! DO NOT BUY PG-13 CUT DVD. It is missing the Unrated cut and doesn't have all the special features and doesn't deliver on the commentary.

Dude that's bogus. So that PG-13 DVD is essentially a useless barebones DVD. Might as well get the Unrated version with both versions and the EPK fluff.
