Snitch runs close to two hours, and it's a credit to Summit Entertainment that they didn't reduce it to 90 minutes of Mexican drug loons trying to run John's truck off the highway.

Snitch wants to be Breaking Bad. When the camera's on Johnson, it's just bad.

Good intentions are all but submerged in nonsense.

Spurious isn't the word. Po-faced anti-drug film based on the silliest legal loophole ever.

Neither clever nor stupid enough to work.

The film tries to paint in shades of gray with vague criticisms of the war on drugs, but the absurdity of its he-man Everyman plot ends up turning its moral palette a muddy brown.

In the end, this is a movie that lives or dies on Johnson's performance, and luckily, the actor is perfect ...

Yes, this is a film where The Rock Wikipedias "drug cartels." But somehow it works.
February 22, 2013
Despite its apparent compromises to noble finger-wagging (initially) and requisite fist-pumping (eventually), Waugh has fashioned a sturdy character-first entertainment out of Snitch.

Dwayne Johnson tries so hard to be taken seriously in the ponderous and preposterous drama Snitch that it hurts to watch him in much the same way it hurts to watch the weightlifting competition at the summer Olympics.
February 22, 2013
Ultimately, unfortunately, this is a property that probably would have been better as one of Johnson's old, less ambitious films - straightforwardly violent, and crammed with two-fisted revenge - than as this more polite, issue-oriented thriller.

What a pleasant surprise.

When the list of the year's most eminently forgettable films is drawn up at the end of 2013, "Snitch" will likely be near the top.

"Snitch" is protein-and-starch filmmaking at its utilitarian -- and belly-filling -- best.
February 21, 2013
The dialogue is preachy, the drama too earnest and the action kind of sluggish, though it's hard not to get a jolt when Johnson jumps behind the wheel.
February 21, 2013
Based on a true story, it has the weirdness of real life, which is good. But also like real life, it has that funny way of not making much sense or being all that enjoyable.
February 21, 2013
In its focus on an ordinary family facing a nightmarish scenario, Snitch is a terrifying but relatable story.
February 21, 2013
Mr. Johnson's screen presence, however charismatic, is out of sync with the rest of the movie.

February 21, 2013
Whatever lizard-brain fun might have been had in watching Johnson do battle against a drug cartel is weakened by the occasional hard tug at the social conscience. The film winds up divided against itself.

Someone please get director Ric Roman Waugh a tripod!
