Overall the movie was great but they just needed a little bit more action and keep the talking to a minimal. However, I recommend it to anybody is definitely a must see! =)

Great Movie! Be prepared for a very slow start so get your popcorn and soda and enjoy. I thought there would be more action but over all since it was a based on a true story I guess it had to unfold as told. Yes another outstanding performance by Dewayne. This is was totally out of his normal character yet he nailed it. No tank top scenes, but still fabulously fine! Keep up the good entertainment. Good for the entire family to enjoy.

I absolutely love dwayne johnson and my husband and i were excited to see this movie. the story line was great, however we felt that it left us hanging. we expected a lot more action and it seems as though it skipped out on a lot of stuff. left me feeling as if i wasted my money to see it in the theatre and wish i would have waited for it to come out on video. looking forward to gi joe!

i read a bunch of reviews here before i watched it, they're mostly positive revews, and i deiced to go, and it turned out to be bit boring to me, the rock's acting was ok, the plot was good, just that the movie turned out to be a suspense/thriller than an action/thriller

This movie is a DRAMA, based on real life events, and makes a statement about the "three strikes" laws and their misapplication to teenage first-time offenders caught in the system. The story at root is based on a father's love for his son, and how far he is willing to go, even risking his own life, to try to free his son. But the plot is really about drug-trafficking. While the story grabs you right from the beginning, it moves at a drama's pace, not an action-adventure pace! There is definitely suspense and some action throughout, but more on a gritty, gut-wrenching, painful, and sad level. This movie was totally NOT what I was expecting, but after settling in, I really liked it. I wonder if there is enough of a reality-check message for teens and their families about consequence, before they make naive decisions about who they associate with, holding their "stuff", and even coercion into drug-trafficking.
