I went to this movie expecting your typical dwayne the rock johnson movie but got a little more than I expected. I have to agree with some of the other reviews. At first I was wow'd with the story and the rock being able to give his character some emotional depth BUUUUT the last 20 mins of the film which should be the good part kinda put me back on the fence. The last 20 was like a made for TV action film. I would say even though the ending is questionable you'll still feel ok spending your money to go see this film.

I enjoyed Snitch. I was thoroughly entertained from start to finish. Dwayne Johnson carries his own as a leading man in this action movie. Beautiful Susan Sarandon lights up the screen every time she appears. Barry Pepper plays a bearded undercover DEA agent. Jon Bernthal is great as Daniel (Cruiser) an ex-con working for the "Snitch", enlisted to introduce him to the drug runners the government needs to bring down in order to make a deal for a lighter sentence for the trucking operation owner's son, who gets caught holding the bag of his so-called friend's drugs. Benjamin Bratt even has a cameo as the drug cartel leader. Reminds one of the good action movies from the 70's, like White Line Fever.

We went to watch Snitch, not really knowing what to expect because of the half and half reviews. We were pleasantly surprised, this was not a cheesy, action flick. It was instead a good story, inspired by true events, and it was well executed. It focuses on the players, characters, and the story which came across realistic and true. It's worth a watch.

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!!!

The movie is very long and drawn out. After 20 minutes of watching and waiting for something to be unpredictable you get a gun fight. We held out and hoped for the best,but people were leaving and complaining about it. We left when the 12 year old boy in front of us started snoring,his dad had been asleep for awhile. We had very high hopes for this movie,but it left us flat. I wouldn't say "don't go see it",but there are a lot better movies out there. If your sitting at home and are bored,go see it at least you will get a good nap in or be ready for bed when you get back home.
