In Snitch, that likeable lunk Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson puts his serious acting hat on. Just like you, I never knew he owned one. What's more, it doesn't seem to fit so good.
August 30, 2018
The pieces for a competent action drama are there, but they never come together.
September 5, 2017
This frowning, mostly funless effort logs the action with bluntly defined secondary characters.
October 25, 2016
The latest project from stuntman-turned-director Ric Roman Waugh valiantly attempts to serve two masters and manages to come up a bit short in both genres.
April 17, 2016
"Snitch" is passable thanks to a sturdy second act and a decent performance by Dwayne Johnson, but it's never captivating.
July 13, 2013
A pseudo-serious hand-wringing action drama that uses social importance to disguise its unoriginality.
June 22, 2013
Snitch wants to be Breaking Bad. When the camera's on Johnson, it's just bad.
June 22, 2013
Teeth are gritted, shaven-heads stroked, families hugged, moist-eyes blinked - but it's the sight of big things getting smashed to pieces that endures, and ultimately bores.
June 21, 2013
Its smaller, quieter moments instill hope that Johnson can stretch even further and become worthy of much stronger material.
June 20, 2013
If Snitch ultimately perishes from over-ambition, at least it's an honourable death.
June 20, 2013
Good intentions are all but submerged in nonsense.
June 20, 2013
Spurious isn't the word. Po-faced anti-drug film based on the silliest legal loophole ever.
June 20, 2013
Neither clever nor stupid enough to work.
June 19, 2013
The script can't quite decide whether it's a serious emotional drama or a pumped-up action flick and it ends up disappointing on both counts as a result.
June 17, 2013
What's undeniably credibility-cracking is the idea of The Rock as an Ordinary Joe in jeopardy.
June 11, 2013
[Director Rick Roman] Waugh is self indulgent in his approach to the material, and the dialogue occasionally bogs in preachy rhetoric. Once one moves beyond these annoyances, Snitch works as a simple and enjoyable action thriller.
May 22, 2013
Snitch should have been called Bait and Switch.
May 14, 2013
An unbelievable tale of a good dad who has to work with the bad guys to save his son from jail.
March 29, 2013
Part of the problem is that Waugh, who comes from a background in stunt work, can't keep his fingers out of the cookie jar of macho action clichs.
March 6, 2013
I haven't decided whether Mr. Waugh is actually on a fool's errand or merely charged with a thankless task, but the film doesn't really work in either intended capacity.
