Declassified: The Making of 'The Marine'

Genre: Short
11 min

all you thought you could be...

and that's how you ended up

as a rent-a-cop.

Tell me I'm wrong.

Whoa! Whoa, whoa, whoa.

Hey, wait a minute. Wait a minute.

- The genie tried to hit me!

- I know. I saw that,

and he shouldn't have done that.

You shouldn't have done that.

But he missed, and you're fine.

We deal with people like this every day,

and in order to avoid an incident...

sometimes you just

gotta let things go.

Yeah? Well, you better

tell your boyfriend to back off.

Unfortunately for the genie,

this is not one of those times.


[ Gasping ]

It's on now. See, you really messed up.

Somewhere, somehow,

somebody just got all this on video.

By the time you go to sleep tonight,

I'm gonna own this building.

And tomorrow...

don't be late.

'Cause when you clock in, you're fired!


[ Clears Throat ]

A toast.

To your first and last day on the job.

[ Chuckles ]


- About that-

- Dude, I told you, don't worry about it.

It's not the first time

I've been suspended.

That's not it. Um-

You'll find another job.

You got all that training.


Covert reconnaissance.

Close-quarter hand-to-hand combat.


Not a high call in the workplace

for skills like that, Joe.

Okay, but you're a smart guy.

You can do whatever you want.

You don't get it. It's not-

It's not about work.

It's not about a job.

Being a marine meant everything to me.

Now I go and get fired

from some bullshit security job.


I don't know what to do.


I'm not gonna try and pretend

I know what you're going through...

'cause I don't.

And-And your time as a marine-

Yeah, it's over.

And that sucks, man.

But your life's not over.

I mean, it's changing...

but you gotta learn to change with it.


Sometimes, it's good to just take
