The Rock is not too believable as a pussy ass bitch

This is passable thriller fare that almost has a DTV air to it. Yet the two lead actors Dwayne Johnson (his muscles and intimidation factor completely blanketed here) and Jon Berthnal display some solid acting skills here, keeping the story focused on the characters' families and the consequences that lie in the wake of their dangerous choices. I enjoyed the film enough to warrant a recommendation.

The poster to your left makes it look like The Rock and his truck are going to provide some snitches with some sorely needed stitches. Instead you get The Rock playing a desperate, scared man trying to save his son in the wake of the damage done by mandatory minimum sentencing brought about by the dismal failure that is the War on Drugs. It's pretty good. Bonus points for literally having a card at the end saying "this is why this shit is bad, in case a whole movie wasn't enough for you".

Now, I wouldn't consider myself a scholar in the finer details of American criminal law, but isn't what the DEA does to The Rock's kid entrapment?... and thus fairly easy for a good defense layer to get him off the hook for?... without his father going on a murderous truck-based rampage?... Something tells me the "based on a true story" is fairly loosely applied here...

The Rock is a bit of a pussy in this one. Still, he is charismatic enough to carry a film without much action, which puts him above most of his peers in what is left of the genre.

Wait, so the Rock doesn't lay the smackdown on any jabronies in this film? A surprisingly deeper film, with some pretty good performances. Nothing outstanding but better than I expected. Also nice to see Barry Pepper prepping to join the next season of Sons of Anarchy.

Watching the rock doing what he has to to save his son even though his son is a dumb ass for messing with drugs and I'm starting to like the rock more as an actor.

Snitch is a messy film that is never better than mediocre in any way. The screenplay feels formulaic with the plot often feeling contrived or just dumb. The rhetoric about minimum sentencing is contradicted by the theme of "for the greater good", making the film inconsistent rather than thoughtful. The dialogue and characters are punishingly one-dimensional and sleazy. Johnson disappointing turns into the hero (again). Bernthal and Bratt were decent, but the film remains underwhelming.

Although essentially an action flick, it has a script the target audience of which is not, in fact, idiots. Once I got over that shock, another one came hard on its heels: The Rock does quite a creditable acting job. No subtlety here (that shock would have finished me off), but not bad at all.

Good storyline but The Rock was potrayed strong willed but at the same time vulnerable family man in this film which was something new. Story was a little longer than it needed to be.

The Rock should start looking for more roles (know your role, jabroni) like this, rather than his usual ass-kicking or family-friendly nonsense. Was expecting a loud action movie and instead got a smart crime-thriller, and I wasn't disappointed in the slightest.

It's nothing incredibly groundbreaking, but Mr. The Rock gives a pretty good performance, and it was cool to see a movie where he isn't some unbreakable tank of a man, but actually pretty damn fragile and human. There were some pretty shots and nice color stuff too. And Michael K Williams out of nowhere was a nice surprise. I want to watch more pseudo-neo-noirs starring Mr. The Rock.

It was good to see The Rock try something different in this film. Instead of the hardcore action hero character he usually plays he has gone for a more dramatic role and someone who actually shows some emotion. The story is quite well told and all of the cast put in decent performances. Jon Bernthal is the star turn throughout and is the only one who has some form of character arc. This is definitely worth a watch and as its inspired by true events makes this even more engrossing!

This plays out like a dramatized version of a Dateline or 20/20 segment about a father's quest to exhonorate his imprisoned son who falls victim to the drug war's mandatory minimum sentencing. Heartfelt at times but also a bit contrived. Refreshing to see Dwayne Johnson actually act though...

Jon Berthal is so good in this (no surprise there), he makes you wish his character had been the lead instead. The poster for this thing is almost as bad and misleading as the covers you see on those Chinese bootleg dvd’s.

This is a good thriller. Dwayne Johnson is good in the lead role. The screenplay is not ground breaking but the film is still interesting. The supporting cast is also good in this movie. Overall I would recommend this film.

Kudos for the Rock for trying something more serious and against type. I don't mind it didn't fit my expectations of being your standard high adrenaline action movie. I just wish he picked a better movie to do so. Cause as a serious drama based on real event, it's an obvious unsubtle morally simplistic Hollywoodization of such a story. On top of that the direction and music is of the most uninspired cliched ridden kind, inc. the mandatory overuse of shaky handheld camera.

An everyday average joe must make a major drug bust for the DEA to reduce the prison sentence of his son. The movie is actually quite solid as a crime/family drama if it weren't for the fact that said normal guy is played by The Rock, whose intimidating physique makes his whole character unbelievable. Apart from that I expected the movie to be far worse. But I also expected that I get a typical Rock centered action flick instead of a serious drama.

For once, the Rock doesn't feel like a superhero. Dwayne Johnson and Jon Berthnal are two of my favorite actors today, and they both do pretty damn well. Snitch may seem pretty generic based of its premise, but there is a lot to like here. As mentioned before, the film is very grounded from his typical flick, it might be one of his better performances, as it's very story driven and features very few action sequences. Very underrated.

It's almost its own trope to have The Rock play a wimpy guy at the start, as if your average crook isn't going to take one look at him and piss their pants. The plot is filled with holes and inaccuracies. Generic story; good soundtrack.

To its credit, it's far more thoughtful than it needed to be; but the lazy heart of a Dwayne Johnson action movie still rots away the core a tad.

Surprisingly solid and NOT what I thought (expected another Rock ass-kicking vehicle). That's not to say it's bad, because it's really not. The Rock gives a great performance as a fragile man willing to do anything for his son. Snitch moves along at a good pace and is pretty intense as things spiral out of control. Well crafted all around, though by no means original or groundbreaking. But does every movie need to be? Nah. This is just a lot of fun.

Roman Waugh makes some bad choices in order to fill the film with a political agenda -- there is a disposable scene in which Jason's father defends him for not snitching his outlaw friends; and there is even a post-film message about these kids that go to jail without a record -- and his choice to film everything with a shaky camera also makes this a pretty average crime drama. But it's nice to see Johnson approaching a fragile role as a big guy that doesn't know how to fight or fire guns.

Not what you expect - and although it tries really hard to have an agenda about the drug laws in America, you can just sit back and watch The Rock do the best acting he's ever done, until Pain & Gain. I assume.

It should have been called wuss. I guess it is sort of refreshing to see Dwayne Johnson (The Rock) not be a total butt kicker but it's also pretty unbelievable that he gets pushed around by so many people due to his size in this movie. My biggest complaint about this film is that there is nobody to cheer for. I disliked the son he was trying to save and the bad guys weren't even that cool. Plus, this movie was just politicizing mandatory sentences for drug crimes and how bad they are.

I am not so much a fan of Dwayne Johnson as I am Jon Bernthal, who just so happens to be the bread and butter of this film. Bernthals honest and driven performance is the only real reason to tune into this film. He kept the hope alive, the pacing fresh. Other then that it crumbled at the roots, it was pretty typical stuff for an action thriller. Check it out if you dig Jon Bernthal and action flicks, other then that you have probably seen this before.

The Rock doesn't have to play the ultimate ass kicker for me to enjoy his movies. Just as long as he stays away from the horribly family movies he did for a few years.

Honestly thought The Rock, like pretty much everyone and everything else in this film, was completely flat. Apart from the last 10-15 minutes which are relatively decent, this is a turd. The music is possibly the worst I've ever heard in a film.

I'm sure folks will grumble about Dwayne's performance in this but....they're wrong, it's the direction. While he's a bit unbelievable early on when he gets jumped the other grumbles I'd have are down to being TOO reigned in. That's the director, another take up a notch and he'd have nailed it.

Could have been crap but the acting is way beyond my expectations. Great pacing and intensity. Dwayne Johnson's best performance yet, while Barry Pepper, Jon Bernthal and Michael K. Williams are on top form as usual. Surprisingly strong film.

I was expecting The Rock to bring the peoples elbow on a bunch of drug dealers, but instead it is a decently paced thriller about the failed war on drugs. Solid film!

The Rock's such a naturally charismatic good guy that you're with him all the way, even though he doesn't get to kick much ass here, and even though his son's sort of an unrepentant idiot. The movie's okay, but would be a whole lot better if it weren't so cluttered, and didn't give off such an aggressive early-90's TV movie vibe. Diehard Rock fans'll be pretty into it, though.

I'm starting to really like Dwayne The Rock Johnson as an actor. Solid performance, however it kind of strikes me when I see him as a scared pushover.

The opening 20 minutes felt kind of poor, felt like a long PSA against mandatory minimum sentencing (which I'm not going to take a stand on in a movie review), and the emotional conveyance just didn't feel genuine to me, up until the visitation scene. The final score is buoyed by a strong third act, but the fact that the whole movie turns out to be what I had a bad feeling it was (based on that opening 20) sinks it once again. It is what it is, but, what it is isn't overly strong or memorable.
