John Cena has been a part of many big projects over the years, and sometimes production can take a long time. Cena traveled to China years ago to do a film with Jackie Chan, and that film is finally seeing the light of day. Naturally, fans were very interested.
Hidden Strike made its debut on Netflix on July 28th, where it has quickly gained popularity. It’s listed in the top spot in the global top 10 most-watched titles on the streaming service within just 24 hours of it being added. This film was shot years ago, and it was in production forever, leaving many fans to wonder if it would ever drop.
The movie stars John Cena and Jackie Chan. It was originally filmed in 2018 but wasn’t released until this past Friday. You can check out the plot summary below.
The plot of the film notes, “When a China-run oil refinery is attacked in Mosul, Iraq, a Chinese private security contractor is called in to extract the oil workers. He learns, however, that the attackers’ real plan is to steal a fortune in oil, and teams up with an American former Marine to stop them.”
John Cena lived in China during the production of this film, and that is the reason why he is fluent in Mandarin Chinese. He developed a great love for the country during his time there, and it is quite evident by his actions since then, especially his public apology to the entire country.
We will have to see what John Cena does next to attract attention. His movies still bring a lot of eyes, and that is especially true for films that have been in production purgatory for so long.
