This movie had a very melodramatic trailer and with that in mind i wasn't expecting much from this movie but i'm a huge Dwayne The rock Johnson fan so i decided to give this movie a chance and wow this movie good and i'm happy to say my expectations were exceeded and this is easily one of the better movies to come out in first quarter of 2013. Like i said this movies trailer was very melodramatic and while the movie does have some melodramatic moments the pace is so good that when the melodramatic scenes happen they just breeze over them and don't pay much much mind to them but they do take a lot of time on the awesome action scenes ehich they should do. The acting was really good the rock proves that he can hold his own and not be outacted. The is somewhat predictable but the movie is so well done your still on the edge of your seat the whole time. I couldn't suggest snitch enough i'd give it a 9/10

You know I always like these kinds of movies, mostly when there inspired by true events, great role play by all the characters in the movie,....requires lots of patience however, because I was expecting a lot of gun violence and shooting by law enforcement, but this movie was just the right kind of film for people like myself. I really loved this movie, I thought it was going to be rated R, but surprisingly it was rated PG-13. This movie almost brought tears to my eyes near the end, sometimes shy people have to hold back themselves, because I hate crying, it causes headaches as symptoms. This movie also reminds all of humanity, that when you get involved in drugs, money, and act in a criminal way, the prices of it are very heavy. You know the saying goes, "if you cant do the time, dont commit the crime." Great movie after all, really enjoyed it. Very powerful and well done! Enjoy, worth the money!

Good amount of action. Well cast...worth the 99 minutes! Some things were unclear from a story line perspective. If you just sit back and relax and try not to connect the dots / flaws in story you will be fine.

I enjoyed the film. Susan Sarandon, Barry Pepper and Jon Berehthal were all very good in their roles. As well as the actor who played "Malik", a local drug dealer. I like Dwayne Johnson but he lacked the required emotion during some of the scenes with his son to make his role believable. He was OK, but a few acting lessons might make him a little more credible in those type of roles. He plays a tough guy very well. I liked him a lot in "Walking Tall" but this role required a little more emotion than he was capable of delivering on.

The movie had a lot of action, but had more depth than I expected. Also, Duane Johnson was more vulnerable in this movie than in his typical roles which rely on his strength/fighting ability. The only fight scene he was involved in, he got beat up and didn't really fight back. Enjoyed it.
