I enjoyed Snitch. I was thoroughly entertained from start to finish. Dwayne Johnson carries his own as a leading man in this action movie. Beautiful Susan Sarandon lights up the screen every time she appears. Barry Pepper plays a bearded undercover DEA agent. Jon Bernthal is great as Daniel (Cruiser) an ex-con working for the "Snitch", enlisted to introduce him to the drug runners the government needs to bring down in order to make a deal for a lighter sentence for the trucking operation owner's son, who gets caught holding the bag of his so-called friend's drugs. Benjamin Bratt even has a cameo as the drug cartel leader. Reminds one of the good action movies from the 70's, like White Line Fever.

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.

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!

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.
