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.

My 10 year old requested to see it although I was opting for something a bit more out there. We opted to go during the week since all his homework was done. It was a pleasant surprise. Go see it. It's decent. The movie showed a Father's length of love for his child. The only drawback was having to explain terms like "shot caller" and etc during the movie. And we still got home in time enough for him to hit the sack......

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!

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.
