i read a bunch of reviews here before i watched it, they're mostly positive revews, and i deiced to go, and it turned out to be bit boring to me, the rock's acting was ok, the plot was good, just that the movie turned out to be a suspense/thriller than an action/thriller

Well done, really liked it, but it's a DRAMA!

By MightyDoc
Written July 01, 2016
This movie is a DRAMA, based on real life events, and makes a statement about the "three strikes" laws and their misapplication to teenage first-time offenders caught in the system. The story at root is based on a father's love for his son, and how far he is willing to go, even risking his own life, to try to free his son. But the plot is really about drug-trafficking. While the story grabs you right from the beginning, it moves at a drama's pace, not an action-adventure pace! There is definitely suspense and some action throughout, but more on a gritty, gut-wrenching, painful, and sad level. This movie was totally NOT what I was expecting, but after settling in, I really liked it. I wonder if there is enough of a reality-check message for teens and their families about consequence, before they make naive decisions about who they associate with, holding their "stuff", and even coercion into drug-trafficking.

A Gripping Action Movie

By brianmed5
Written March 29, 2017
The Rock is back with a vengeance in a story about a small time business man turned hired wheelman for a narcotic crime syndicate. After his son is accused of a foiled plot to smuggle narcotics, Dave Mathews (The Rock) decides to go undercover as a DEA informant and intercept the dark criminal enterprise of illegal drug smuggling. Working as an undercover agent and wheeling contraband across state lines, the Rock finds more than he could bargain for. Snitch is an action packed melodrama full of suspense, an edge of your seat climax, and a star studded performance.

Slow

If it were not for the two main characters I would have rated this movie as DOUBLE slow. Trailer much more interesting then the overall movie.

A Must See

By MOTORCYCLISTENGINEER

There wasn't quite as much action as I had expected, but the message that the movie delivers is a Must See, especially for young adults. It should scare the pants off any young adult or teenager about the seriousness of dealing in drugs. The movie itself was a little slow at times, but overall it was decent, and The Rock did a pretty creditable acting job. There was some language and violence, but no gore, sex or nudity, so it is ok even for young teens.
