The Rock tries VERY hard never to disappoint his audience and this movie is a fine example of that effort. Yes, it's a formula flick like so many others nowadays, but it's still very entertaining. At least it's not one more remake of some tired old franchise those square-headed bean counter in corporate Hollywood churn out regularly, like clockwork. If you're tired of remakes of remakes, over produced superhero franchises and potty-mouthed rom-coms passed around like they're actually funny, then you'll find fresh air in this formula, even if you leave feeling like you’ve been there, done that. This is a play well written and very well executed. No, it's not a blockbuster. It's just a good old fashioned "good movie." See it. You won't be disappointed.

Great Movie! Be prepared for a very slow start so get your popcorn and soda and enjoy. I thought there would be more action but over all since it was a based on a true story I guess it had to unfold as told. Yes another outstanding performance by Dewayne. This is was totally out of his normal character yet he nailed it. No tank top scenes, but still fabulously fine! Keep up the good entertainment. Good for the entire family to enjoy.

I love this movie. It should a very different side of the usual "The Rock" movies. This time he plays a protagonist roll and isn't the hardcore intimidating Dwayne Johnson aka "The Rock". The film had great dialog and satire, very action filled and good storyline. Enjoyed it more than I thought I would.

I absolutely love dwayne johnson and my husband and i were excited to see this movie. the story line was great, however we felt that it left us hanging. we expected a lot more action and it seems as though it skipped out on a lot of stuff. left me feeling as if i wasted my money to see it in the theatre and wish i would have waited for it to come out on video. looking forward to gi joe!

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.
