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.

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

Wow...I thought this was going to be another brainless shoot-em-up movie, like the Expendables or something. This was much more serious, much deeper movie with an excellent story to tell. And it is based upon a true story. Well worth seeing.

For all those who are looking for an action packed movie, this is not the movie for you. On the other hand, it has an emotional story about what a father will go through to save his son. Yes, there are sequences of action and ecxplosives, but it focuses more on the storyline than anything. Dwayne Johnson plays the role of a father who will go behind enemy lines to do what it takes to save his son from being in jail. Who do you trust? What would you do to save your kid? He must play both sides in order to complete his mission. I really enjoyed the flick, and Dwayne Johnson shows that he can be a credible actor and not just a wrestler. Go see it!
