As a result of his performances in films such as F9 and The Suicide Squad. John Cena has progressed from being a multi-time WWE Champion to becoming one of the biggest. (both in terms of size and popularity) stars in Hollywood.
To get to the point where he could go toe to toe with Vin Diesel. And be the biggest douchebag in the DC Comics universe.
He had already embarked on a remarkable cinematic journey that took him from WWE-produced action films to some of the best comedic films of the past decade.
List of John Cena movies. Including Trainwreck and the Transformers spinoff Bumblebee. As well as some others that are worth seeing for a variety of reasons. Is provided below. A lot has been said about John Cena’s life in movies, so let’s look at some of his best work.
After meeting and falling in love with sports doctor Aaron Conners (Bill Hader) in New York City in Judd Apatow’s 2015 romantic comedy Trainwreck. Serial dater Amy Townsend (Amy Schumer. Who also wrote the film) decides to take her love life seriously for the first time.
Amy is forced to date Steven (John Cena). A muscle-bound gym-addict who has a hilarious sexual encounter. One of the best back-and-forths ever set in a movie theater. A shockingly emotional breakup scene before she can change her perspective on dating, and love for that matter, for a stretch.
In addition, despite the fact that Cena is only in the film for a few minutes at the most. He makes the most of his appearance and demonstrates that he is more than just another wrestler turned actor.
Bumblebee, the 2018 Transformers spinoff/prequel, is one of the better entries in the franchise to date. It follows the titular Autobot as he seeks refuge as a beat-up yellow Volkswagen Beetle in a junkyard in 1980s California.
The story begins when Charlie Watson (Hailee Steinfeld) discovers and revives Bumblebee, an action that sets in motion plans to save the Autobots from destruction at the hands of the Decepticons and their pawn.
Jack Burns, in the first half of the film (John Cena). Cena shines as the complex villain-type he never had the opportunity to portray in WWE, and he adds a nice charm to the character you both love and despise at the same time in this film.
Upon discovering that their teenage daughters have made a pact to lose their virginity on the night of their prom, a group of parents led by John Cena, Leslie Mann, and Ike Barinholtz take drastic measures (including butt-chugging) to prevent the girls from fulfilling their vow.
A good time for everyone (well, everyone of a certain age). The hilarious and surprisingly heartfelt 2018 comedy. Blockers tells two fascinating stories about the changing relationship between parents and daughters as they grow older.
Even though every single member of the Blockers cast is working at full capacity. Cena really goes all out and steals the show whenever he appears on the screen.
The Marines (2006)
Okay, so the WWE-produced 2006 action thriller The Marine isn’t particularly good. But it’s a lot of fun to watch in its own right.
A recently discharged Marine named John Triton (John Cena) returns home from a tour of duty in Iraq to discover that his wife, Kate (Kelly Carlson).
Has been kidnapped by a gang of jewel thieves led by an extremely lethal. And sinister madman named Rome (Kelly Carlson) (Robert Patrick).
Due to the fact that the local authorities are outmatched and outgunned by the vicious gang. Only the Marine will be able to save his wife and bring them and the gang to justice.
A little bit of everything when it comes to action movie tropes can be found in this film. Which contributes to it being a shockingly violent good time. Unfortunately, it is no longer included on the list of unexpectedly entertaining Netflix movies.
12 rounds (2009)
A few years after making his acting debut in The Marine. John Cena was the star of another WWE Studios production. The thrilling action film 12 Rounds. Which was released in 2012.
Beginning with New Orleans police officer Danny Fisher (Cena) preventing master thief Miles Jackson (Aidan Gillen) from successfully pulling off what would be one of the largest heists in the city’s history, the film moves forward to other locations throughout the city.
As Jackson breaks out of prison. He kidnaps Fisher’s fiancée (notice a pattern here?). And forces the cop to solve a series of elaborate puzzles and deadly traps.
But this is only the beginning. Take, for example, the film Die Hard with a Vengeance. But instead of Bruce Willis delivering a series of one-liners. John Cena introduces elements of professional wrestling into the Action world.
Playing with Fire (2019)
There must be some unwritten rule that requires action stars to appear in at least one film in which they are paired with children of a certain age. For years, big-bodied actors like Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Vin Diesel, and Dave Bautista have shared the screen with their diminutive counterparts.
It was only a matter of time before John Cena followed in their footsteps as well. Enter Playing with Fire, a 2019 family-friendly comedy in which Cena portrays Jake Carson, a straight-laced
No-nonsense fire chief who rescues a group of three siblings alongside fellow firefighters Mark Rogers (Keegan-Michael Key). And Rodrigo Torres (Rodrigo Torres) from a burning building (John Leguizamo).
Everyone involved in the film learns what it means to be a family, for better or worse, over the course of the film’s running time.
The 2017 animated comedy Ferdinand is based on the 1936 children’s book The Story of Ferdinand. And tells the story of a gentle giant of a bull who flees the world of competitive bullfighting. And seeks refuge on a Spanish farm in the hopes of living a fun and relatively peaceful life.
After that, the movie could have ended and audiences would have been left with a short and sweet story. That is full of laughs and love despite the fact that it is unfinished.
But the story of this film doesn’t end there. The film follows Ferdinand (John Cena). Who is transported back to his old haunts where he is forced to square off against the most notorious living matador. El Primero (Miguel Angel Silvestre), and discovers what he is made of in the process.
Sisters is a 2015 comedy film that is primarily carried by the performances of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Who play two siblings who decide to throw an epic rager during their last weekend at their childhood home before their parents sell it.
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are best known for their roles in the film Sisters. When John Cena’s Pazuzu, a beefed-up and heavily tattooed drug dealer who has a stash that would put Tony Montana, Hunter S.
Thompson, and just about everyone else to shame. Enters the picture, the straightforward but promising setup. And the pairing of the former Saturday Night Live standouts is enough to make this an enjoyable comedy.
Released only a few months after Cena received a slew of laughs from audiences in Trainwreck. Cena demonstrated that he was anything but a victim of beginner’s luck. And that he was capable of holding his own comedically. Just as he had done physically in the ring for the better part of a decade before the film’s release.
The Wall (2017)
The Wall, a 2017 military thriller that is one of the best movies available on Amazon Prime. Follows two American soldiers, Allan “Ize” Isaac (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Shane Matthews (John Cena).
As they respond to a distress call in war-torn Iraq only to find themselves in the middle of a sniper’s elaborate and deadly trap.
Doug Liman’s tense drama, in which Cena plays one of the more dramatic roles of his career. Is a slow and methodical race against time as a dwindling supply of bullets and strength for badly injured. And outmatched U.S. soldiers is exhausted.
