Snitch ★★½

Wow, Snitch is the first real movie I've seen Dwayne Johnson attempt. I won't be doing that again anytime soon.

Thoughtfully slow, utterly pedestrian, fairly tense, the limited action is dull as ditchwater and the story is without surprise. As always though The Rock just about saves the day. His stellar performance as a loving father with just enough cahoonas to Narc up is charming and believable enough. I can however regretfully confirm that not a single soul gets choke slammed, piledrivered or clotheslined into blissful oblivion.

While I applaud Dwayne for his relatively cerebral performance and efforts in tackling a troubling subject, the lack of meat on this turkey was a real disappointment.

Trucking lame!
