The Rock Makes a Smart Movie

Dwayne Johnson does the best performance of his career, but my guess is that people will be dissatisfied for this reason. The film isn't an action movie. It's a subtle, nuanced film with little violence and few explosions. Mr. Johnson's performance fits the bill. He never lets his huge frame and action star past get in the way of an intelligent approach to the role. It's a quiet film, almost an art-house film, and DJ should be proud of his work. Susan Serandon is also excellent as a slightly sleazy AUSA.

Great story, Dwayne is getting better at acting, not just a wrestling star anymore. Story compelling and obviously a powerful message to some of the naive, young people who just don't have the life experience to see the "down side" of some of the choices they make.

I loved this because it was based on true events and had a pretty jarring message. I love Dwayne Johnson in general, but I don't think he's ever gonna be an Oscar winner for his acting. Great role model though, and great to look at!

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

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
