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......

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!

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.

It was an entertaining movie. At times, the movie was slow. I thought Dwayne Jackson has tremendously improved as an actor.

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.
