From a dads perspective: it was difficult not to get caught up in those thoughts of "what would I do?"
Dwayne Johnson plays the dad of a son in drug trafficking trouble with the feds, puts in a solid performance in contrast with fading star Susan Sarandon who portrays, albeit unconvincingly, as a hard nosed U.S. Attorney.
One other memorable performance was by Barry Pepper, who played a "deep cover" DEA agent. Benjamin Bratt was in this too, brief as his performance was, it was a creepy performance as a drug cartel boss.
All in all a good movie when you have 2 hours to kill.

It had its moments but not all that.

This weeks listing seemed to have nothing I was really drawn to but being a movie going addict..I had to chose something. Snitch had been out a while so what the heck. I was very much surprised. For one, the story was based somewhat on a true story. It also had a social commentary message about our current drug laws and their impact on ordinary citizens, and on those in the drug culture. The drama begins to build as more and more are drawn into this world of the drug wars. No one is left un touched, all are at risk and you leave feeling, even after they supposedly solve the crises, is anyone really safe. In the midst of all the turmoil, violence, the story is also about the younger son teaching his dad about true courage. This was not a wasted movie going trip. All movies don' t have to be great to be good, even very good.

I loved this movie. I took my 13 yr old son and he even gave it a great review (and he's very picky as to what he watches). Some said it was not enough action. Based on the story of the movie, I thought it had some good action and it was very well scripted/written/directed! Can't wait for this movie to come out on dvd because I will buy it!
