I am so used to the standard "Rock" movies that this came as a surprise, it wasn't all about the fighting a tough guy kick butt movies he is usually associated with. Being that the Movie is based on true events even made it better.

There wasn't quite as much action as I had expected, but the message that the movie delivers is a Must See, especially for young adults. It should scare the pants off any young adult or teenager about the seriousness of dealing in drugs.
The movie itself was a little slow at times, but overall it was decent, and The Rock did a pretty creditable acting job.
There was some language and violence, but no gore, sex or nudity, so it is ok even for young teens.

If it were not for the two main characters I would have rated this movie as DOUBLE slow. Trailer much more interesting then the overall movie.

I expected it to be a 6 or a 7 type movie...but it was more like a 8 or 8.5 movie.
There was some good action scenes and the plot wasn't bad either.

From a dads perspective: it was difficult not to get caught up in those thoughts of "what would I do?"
Dwayne Johnson plays the dad of a son in drug trafficking trouble with the feds, puts in a solid performance in contrast with fading star Susan Sarandon who portrays, albeit unconvincingly, as a hard nosed U.S. Attorney.
One other memorable performance was by Barry Pepper, who played a "deep cover" DEA agent. Benjamin Bratt was in this too, brief as his performance was, it was a creepy performance as a drug cartel boss.
All in all a good movie when you have 2 hours to kill.
