SNITCH

The Rock takes it all for gran­ite, US, 111 min

The Weekend Post - Cairns Eye - - Movies -

( M) In Snitch, that like­able lunk Dwayne “The Rock” John­son puts his se­ri­ous act­ing hat on. Just like you, I never knew he owned one. What’s more, it doesn’t seem to fi t so good. While this gap in The Rock’s skill set won’t have you lik­ing the lunk any less, it does take the edge off a crime thriller that was never all that sharp to be­gin with. He plays an ev­ery­day dad look­ing to save his son – fac­ing a stretch in jail – by infi ltrat­ing a mur­der­ous Mex­i­can drugs car­tel. As you ( should never) do. There’s a few en­joy­able scenes of trucks be­ing driven in anger, and ma­chine- guns be­ing fi red very in­ac­cu­rately.
