DWAYNE JOHNSON’S TOP 10 MOVIES
“Skyscraper” (2018): Though some of its action sequences give credibility a really big stretch, this Johnson vehicle about a security man fighting villains in a Hong Kong high-rise that’s ablaze – yes, “Die Hard” meets “The Towering Inferno” – offers undeniable escapist fun.
“Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” (2017): With his humor going a long way, Johnson turns avatar in this very enjoyable revisiting of the board-gamecome-to-life story that fueled an earlier Robin Williams movie.
“The Fate of the Furious” (2017): In their returns to the franchise, Johnson and Jason Statham are so effective as enemies-on-the-run Hobbs and Shaw, a separate movie series for the two of them has been launched.
“Moana” (2016): Johnson became part of the Disney-animation family by lending his voice to the shape-shifting character Maui in this saga.
“San Andreas” (2015): Earning his disaster-movie stripes, Johnson is solid as a rescue-helicopter pilot trying to save his ex-wife and daughter from “the big one” when it strikes California.
“Pain & Gain” (2013): Johnson rolls with the seriocomic tone of this true tale about several Miami bodybuilders enmeshed in an extortion plot.
“Snitch” (2013): Combining brawn and heart, Johnson plays a novice DEA agent trying to get his incarcerated son off the hook by catching the true bad guys.
“The Game Plan” (2007): An appealing Johnson plays an NFL veteran whose carefree lifestyle changes radically when he learns he has a daughter (Madison Pettis).
“Gridiron Gang” (2006): Ably carrying this true drama on his shoulders, Johnson plays an ex-football star who forms a team out of juvenile delinquents.
“The Rundown” (2003): Still billed solely as “The Rock” at the time, Johnson scored a big hit with this action-comedy about a retrieval mission couched in a treasure hunt in the Amazon.
