The Marine is a 2006 action film featuring WWE star John Cena as Sergeant John Triton, a US Marine who has to utilize his special skills to rescue his wife, who has been kidnapped by ruthless bank robbers. Several direct to video sequels that also starred WWE wrestlers would follow: 2009's The Marine 2 (featuring Ted DiBiase Jr.), 2013's The Marine 3: Homefront, 2015's The Marine 4: Moving Target and 2017's The Marine 5: Battleground, (the latter three films featuring Mike "The Miz" Mizanin).
The following weapons were used in the film The Marine:
WARNING! THIS PAGE CONTAINS SPOILERS!
Rifles / Carbines
John Triton (John Cena) uses an M16 (SP1) rifle fitted with a Cobray 37mm Launcher to dispatch al-Qaeda members torturing US Marines during the opening scene in the film. The gun is fitted with an A1-style birdcage muzzle brake, which gives the weapon a large and impressive "star pattern" muzzle flash. The original slab-side M16 was actually never issued to the US Marines.

Triton denies his direct order to hold back and jumps in firing his M16 (SP1) to kill all of the Al Qaeda torturing US Marines.
Triton fires his rifle from the hip, Schwarzenegger
-style. No real Marine would ever fire his rifle like this.

Colt Model 733
Rome (Robert Patrick) takes a Colt Model 733 carbine from the back of his car during the robbery and uses it to hose down a police car before the car is destroyed by Morgan's (Anthony Ray Parker) rocket launcher. Later, Bennett (Manu Bennett) uses the same gun to shoot at Triton (John Cena) as he pursues them in a police Camaro.

Another shot of this scene. Note how the rifle is shooting pretty much dead on
Bennett does a mag change.
Bennett chambers the 733. Note how the round seen in the ejection port is a dummy round, which is surprising since most people don't bother to use dummy rounds when the shot is literally under a second long.
Norinco Type 56
The Al Qaeda members torturing U.S. Marines during the opening scene are mainly armed with Norinco Type 56 rifles, fitted with underfolding 'pig-sticker' bayonets and AKM-style muzzle brakes.

RPD Light Machine Gun
One of the Al Qaeda shooting at a US chopper is using an RPD during the opening scene.

The Al Qaeda in the middle fires his RPD LMG.
John Triton (John Cena) is seen using what appears to be a Beretta 92FS to shoot several Al Qaeda members. The gun is never shown in focus. A South Carolina Police officer hunting down Rome (Robert Patrick) and his gang holds his Beretta 92FS on John Triton (John Cena) when he finds him in the woods. After Triton turns his handcuffs on himself with his Marine-style hand-to-hand, he takes the officers Beretta from him, but never uses it.
Triton takes the officer's Beretta.
Do to continuity error, Bennett's (Manu Bennett) Taurus PT92 changes into a nickel plated Beretta 92SB when he looks for Morgan (Anthony Ray Parker) under the fishing hut.
Bennett walks out and a nickel plated Beretta 92SB is seen tucked in his pants. Note the slide mounted decocking safety, as opposed to the frame mounted slide stop safety of his Taurus.
Bennett (Manu Bennett
) with the 92SB. Note rounded trigger guard.
This shows that the safety is ambidextrous.
Jericho 941 F
Rome (Robert Patrick) carries a brushed chrome Jericho 941 F (meaning his has a frame mounted safety) as his sidearm in the film, chambered in .45 ACP. Triton (John Cena) is also seen on the film poster wielding a Jericho, but is not seen wielding one in the film.
Stainless steel Jericho 941 F - 9x19mm
Rome's Jericho being held on Angela (Abigail Bianca
). Note how "Jericho 941 F" can be read on the frame.
Rome fires his Jericho 941 F
at a police Camaro at the gas station.
The ejected casing clearly reads ".45mm" which is woefully incorrect. 45/100 of a millimeter is extremely
small (in fact .45mm equates to 0.019685 of an inch - a diameter slightly smaller than most common hypodermic needles). Rome's Jericho fires .45 caliber rounds, which are actually measured as 45/100 of an inch in diameter. It is not a metric measurement.
"You are one crazy son of a bitch!"
Rome holds his Jericho on Morgan (Anthony Ray Parker
A good side shot of the Jericho.
Angela (Abigail Bianca) is given an older model stainless Taurus PT99 by Rome (Robert Patrick), who takes it off a guard during the first robbery and carries it as her sidearm in the film.

She looks like she's holding a gun for the first time ever.
Angela smacks a fresh magazine into her PT99.
Angela releases the slide on her PT99. Note adjustable sights.
Angela's (Abigail Bianca
) gun has jammed but she's more concerned with the flaming Camaro coming straight for her.
Note how the magazine is falling out here.
Angela points her Taurus PT99
at Kate Triton (Kelly Carlson).
Angela draws her PT99 hidden in the small of her back before killing a truck driver. In this shot, we can see that her PT99 is fitted with Hogue grips.
Bennett (Manu Bennett) carries a pair of stainless Taurus PT92AFS pistols during the robbery and continues to carry a single PT92-AFS for the rest of the film.
Taurus PT92AFS (Stainless) with Slimline Black Factory Grips - 9x19mm. This differs from the PT99 because it has fixed rear sights.
Bennett wields two Taurus PT92AFS
pistols akimbo during the first robbery.

Morgan (Anthony Ray Parker) carries a Ruger KP95 as his sidearm in the film. It appears to be a Pre-2005 model.

. Note the hooked trigger guard and the glossy black frame, identifying this as an older model P95.
Morgan (Anthony Ray Parker
) ignites gasoline at the station by shooting his Ruger at the puddle. Since bullets don't spark on concrete, this seems highly unlikely.
Morgan points his Ruger at Vescera (Damon Gibson
), using the 'gangsta-grip'.
Heckler & Koch P7M13
When Morgan (Anthony Ray Parker) is in the chop-shop looking for a good getaway car, a guard doing a pat-down discovers a pistol on him, which appears to be a Heckler & Koch P7M13.

The bodyguard looks at the pistol he just found on Morgan.
Heckler & Koch USP-9
Agent Van Buren (Jerome Ehlers) carries a 9mm Heckler & Koch USP as his sidearm in the film.

Smith & Wesson Model 14
The two cops at the gas station carry Smith & Wesson Model 14 revolvers, even though the rest of the state police carry Beretta 92FS pistols. After John Triton's (John Cena) wife Kate (Kelly Carlson) is kidnapped by Rome's (Robert Patrick) gang, he takes an officer's Model 14 and a speed loader and begins the chase. Unfortunately the gun is knocked from his hand before he can reload and is thus never used.
Smith & Wesson Model 14 'Target Masterpiece' - .38 Special
An officer's revolver is seen in his holster as he walks up to the gas pump, with target grips. It is unconfirmed if this is the same revolver used by his partner.
The officer fires his Model 14 at Rome through the windshield of his Camaro.
Triton takes a speedloader off the wounded officer before going after Rome and his gang.
Triton picks up the Model 14 off the seat.
Triton attempts to reload the Model 14. Note how there are no empty shells in the gun, yet the officer fired it empty before and Triton never dumped the casings out.
Triton drops the gun when his car is rammed.
Morgan (Anthony Ray Parker) uses an IMI Uzi to shoot at Triton (John Cena) during the car chase scene.

Remington 870 Custom
Billy (Jeff Chase), a hick in the woods, holds a Remington 870 shotgun with an old style USMC heatshield and bayonet lug adapter and sawed off buttstock, on Triton (John Cena) when he accuses him of being a cop. It resembles the shotgun used by Denzel Washington in Training Day, Arnold Schwarzenegger in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, Woody Harrelson in Natural Born Killers and a random thug in Desperado.
Remington 870 Trench Shotgun - 12 Gauge
Remington 870 with USMC configuration - 12 Gauge
A good shot of the muzzle. This is the old USMC combination barrel extension/heatshield/bayonet lug adapter that was used for the 870 throughout the 1980s to the early 2000s.
Cobray CM203 Launcher
Attached to John Triton's M16 (SP1) rifle is a Cobray CM203 Flare Launcher, standing in for M203 grenade launcher. Unlike a real grenade launcher, it is shown capable of detonation at very close ranges, which is not possible with real grenade rounds due to a safety feature based on how many times the round spins in flight. Also, the explosion of the round is depicted as a huge fireball which engulfs the bad guys, another piece of film fiction.
Cobray CM203 Launcher - 37mm
Triton takes cover from the hail of gun fire and a good shot of the CM203 launcher is seen.
Triton reloads his CM203 before opting to "go through" the huge firefight as opposed to around it.
Morgan (Anthony Ray Parker) uses an "Israeli Shoulder Fired Single Shot Rocket Launcher" to blow up a police cruiser once Rome's (Robert Patrick) Colt Model 733 proves ineffective. In reality it is an Armbrust ATW, a weapon originally produced in Germany and later on by Singapore, probably standing in for the larger MATADOR which was in part Israeli-developed and is based on the Armbrust.
Armbrust ATW with grip and shoulder rest folded - 67mm
Morgan takes out the Armbrust from the car.
Morgan aims the Armbrust launcher, though what he is actually doing is looking into the back of the cheek rest with the ATW's integrated sight not flipped up. From the shot below, the flip-up reflex sight seems to have been removed from the launcher in the film. Notice the strange tube located inside the muzzle - likely a pyrotechnic effect to simulate the weapon being fired.
Morgan stares at what's left of the police car he just blew up, still holding the Armbrust.
Hind Minigun (Acetylene Gas Firing)
At the film's beginning, the "Hind" helicopter during the Iraq mission fires off a chin-mounted Gatling-type gun during the opening scene, which is actually firing Acetylene gas to simulate muzzle flash. This actually is footage taken from the film Rambo III and the helicopter is a Aérospatiale Puma mocked up as a Russian MIL Mi-24 Hind. The Minigun is standing in for the YakB 12.7mm which is typically mounted on real Hinds.
