Took my 8 yr. old grandson & we liked the movie quite a bit. In fact, I was surprised at how well Dwayne Johnson was able to bring his "serious" character to life. Pretty good story. Grandson wanted more action scenes, but he is a huge WWE fan and is used to the action. Mr. Johnson is a very handsome man; love his smile & abs!!!

Simply stated...GO SEE IT. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson was awesome. I loved the storyline. I'm not a parent but I know that I know my parents would go to the ends of the earth for me.
Parents take your teenagers to see it.

Dwayne Johnson plays a divorced man who's loyalty to his estranged son pit's him against not only a small time drug dealer but the entire cartel. Caught between his current family and his Ex he does what he feels is necessary to keep his son from going down on a Federal Trafficking charge. Throw into the mix an ex-con struggling to get his life back together while keeping his own young son away from the life and you have a pretty good story. The Rock has, in my opinion one of his best performances thus far in his movie career! This is an action flick so it's not an Oscar caliber movie but it is dang good! The Rock unlike other films does not morph into a super human Killing machine but instead remains vulnerable and most of all a father. The Action is great, Barry Pepper as a Undercover Narcotics officers portrays a grizzled but compassionate and savvy counterpart. Susan Sarandon plays the U.S. Attorney with eyes on a higher office and Benjamin Bratt Plays the King Pin. Go see this!

If you like the "Rock" then you like his style of movies. This movie has a theme much like Grid Iron Gang where it tells a truth based story about similar events that happened to real people.
This movie has suspense, action and thrills all along the way and kept me engaged the whole time we watched it.
I enjoy the "Rock" movie choices because I believe he chooses them with the intent of delivering necessary lessons if you pay attention.
The events portrayed in this movie happen all the time and could easily happen to anyone of us.
Well done sir.

What you do is buy this movie and show it to your son every 30 days. When he just cant watch it another time, show him just the 1st 20 mins every 30 days. When he is 16 show him and all his friends the movie every Friday night and provide pizza.
The movie was perfect and meant something. If your a teenager and your looking for the 'Rock' to kick some Candy A##, this is the wrong movie. He is a naive father just trying to help his son. Really good movie, i am going to take my son that is 6 to see this. I dont think i could make him see how much trouble he could get in from a stupid decision. This movie drives it home. If you cry a lot, you will cry
