'Snitch' Is Far From Rock-Solid

The Rock's latest film is showing at Regal Atlantic Station Stadium 16.

'Snitch' Is Far From Rock-Solid

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson plays a father whose estranged son is framed on a drug-dealing charge in "Snitch."

With his son facing a hefty sentence, The Rock pleads with the U.S. Attorney, played by Susan Sarandon. He soon learns that the only way to get his son's time reduced is to help them find a bigger fish in the drug world.

As you might guess, The Rock does just about anything to save his son. You'll be surprised to know that Johnson does more acting and less action in this movie. Nice try Rock… but the film seeks to make a statement about the futility of the war on drugs, only to take a back seat to its thriller elements.

It's not a great film but it's not bad either. The Flick-O-Meter gives "Snitch" a three out of five.

Despite a good performance from Johnson, "Snitch" takes an interesting story and renders it limp. Is it an action movie? A cautionary tale? A political statement? Or a domestic drama ? 

I really don't think "Snitch" has a clue of what type of movie it wants to be. 

That's just my take. Sound off on my Facebook page; it's called TheBrettside.

Location:

"Snitch" can be found in our Midtown Patch at Regal Atlantic Station Stadium 16. Daily Show times are at 11:45 a.m., 1:00 p.m., 2:30 p.m., 3:55 p.m., 6:45 p.m., 8:10 p.m., 9:35 p.m., 11:00 p.m., and 12:25 a.m.
