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.

Good, good movie! It makes me wonder though what is fact and what is fiction in the movie. I understand it is based on true events. Yikes. It will really tighten your chest to watch this one. Great screenwriting on the part of the Director. Good acting all the way around. The bad guys made me hate em, the good guys had me routing for em and the underdogs had me loving em. I breathed a huge sigh of "thank God" as I was walking out of the theatre.

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.

The Rock Makes a Smart Movie

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.

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. DC
