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.

It was an entertaining movie. At times, the movie was slow. I thought Dwayne Jackson has tremendously improved as an actor.

Great story, Dwayne is getting better at acting, not just a wrestling star anymore. Story compelling and obviously a powerful message to some of the naive, young people who just don't have the life experience to see the "down side" of some of the choices they make.

Based on real events and stories, Dwayne Johnson, Susan Sarandon, Melina Kanakaredes as well as so many other incredible actors pull off one incredible thriller drama.
I am not going to give you the break down of the movie because you really need to see this for yourself! It is awesome and heart warming when your father stands up for and with you.
I refused to listen to the critics who gave this movie a bad rap and i am glad i did! www . papasarms . com

I loved this because it was based on true events and had a pretty jarring message. I love Dwayne Johnson in general, but I don't think he's ever gonna be an Oscar winner for his acting. Great role model though, and great to look at!
