Snitch Review: Dwayne Johnson Goes Undercover

by at .  Updated at . Comments

What makes Snitch is that Dwayne Johnson is playing an everyman who does the extraordinary to save his son. Is it heavy-handed in its mission? Sure, but that thud is felt by Johnson himself and the force of nature that he inhabits. But our Snitch review has to state that the film is let down by a script that brings its action with not quite enough heart.

I hadn’t heard much about Snitch before this weekend. I am interested in seeing it because I like Dwayne Johnson, but I don’t think I’ll have time to go see it in the theater. My job at DISH keeps me pretty busy and my weekends are usually packed. I’m planning to add it to my Blockbuster @Home queue through my DISH account. That way, when it comes out on DVD, it’ll arrive in my mailbox and I won’t have to go out of my way to track it down. It’s much easier because I used to always forget to go rent the movies I missed in the theater, but now they always come to me.
