I expected it to be a 6 or a 7 type movie...but it was more like a 8 or 8.5 movie.
There was some good action scenes and the plot wasn't bad either.

As crime thriller go, Snitch is fairly solid. It does not have the most defining story, but it does manage to work for the film. The Rock seems to be going through the motions in this film, but just like the plot, his performance does work. The one to look for in this film is Jon Bernthal as his performance as Daniel James is very much three dimensional. There is indeed an atmosphere to the film that really establishes a tone right for a crime thriller. Snitch is certainly not the best in its genre, but the film is good enough for a watch.

Nice mix of action and drama, with surprisingly good to excellent performances by Dwayne Johnson (aka "The Rock"), and from the HBO hit series "The Wire," Michael K Williams (as "Omar Little") and former "The Walking Dead" cast member, Jon Bernthal (as "Shane"). The plot become predictable about midway, but has lots of twists and turns afterward that will hold your interest through to the end. Providing and excellent costar performance, this movie could have easily been about Jon's character, far from his "bad cop" role in TWD. You expect that at any moment Dwayne will go into wrestle mode and start knocking heads, but it never happens, especially in the light of his physical domanace against a backdrop of physically normal characters. This movie makes me want to see Michael K Williams in a different typecast. All in all- bravo, good work!

Action came in spurts and acting was awful.Story line was ok, but needed a lot more action. Rating is 2 out of 10.
