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

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.

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 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.

What you do is buy this movie and show it to your son every 30 days. When he just cant watch it another time, show him just the 1st 20 mins every 30 days. When he is 16 show him and all his friends the movie every Friday night and provide pizza. The movie was perfect and meant something. If your a teenager and your looking for the 'Rock' to kick some Candy A##, this is the wrong movie. He is a naive father just trying to help his son. Really good movie, i am going to take my son that is 6 to see this. I dont think i could make him see how much trouble he could get in from a stupid decision. This movie drives it home. If you cry a lot, you will cry
