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.

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!

I really liked the movie "Snitch." The main reason I wanted to see it was because I love "The Rock." He is so handsome and sexy. The movie had a good storyline. It really made you think how quickly your life can be turned around by a stupid mistake.

Dwayne Johnson does the best performance of his career, but my guess is that people will be dissatisfied for this reason. The film isn't an action movie. It's a subtle, nuanced film with little violence and few explosions. Mr. Johnson's performance fits the bill. He never lets his huge frame and action star past get in the way of an intelligent approach to the role. It's a quiet film, almost an art-house film, and DJ should be proud of his work. Susan Serandon is also excellent as a slightly sleazy AUSA.

The Rock is the best in this film. You understand the crime system and its deep and worth seeing it. The Rock nails his character well and it's a great movie to see in theatre.
