This movie however - doesn't tick all of the regular boxes and I'm finding it hard to understand why he was cast for the role.
Johnson plays a successful business owner of a construction firm, with a new wife and daughter and an pretty impressive homestead he has left behind an ex-wife an son that appear to not have been too fortunate. In a daft turn of events, his son agrees to accept a package of drugs from a so called friend and before you know it the D.E.A have stormed the house and arrested the kid for possession with the intent to supply after being grassed up by his 'so called' pal to bid to reduce his own sentence by playing Snitch.
This is where I thought The Rock would come into his own - busting out the biceps to wreak some damage to bad guys but he is every bit as much as out of his depth doing this as he would be partaking in the royal ballet!
For a billed 'action' movie the 12a cert should have given the game away and to be honest, there is very little action to actually speak off. The story is quite ploddy and long winded and The Rock actually gets a kicking rather than dish one out.
Had Dwayne of kicked right off and started cracking skulls I could have seen the link but to be honest, Steve martin could have done just as good a job.
Only go to this if you have already seen Man of Steel and WWZ, if not - both of these other movies leave Snitch well and truly standing.
