...a passable yet forgettable action extravaganza.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
December 29, 2010
OK as a WWE grudge match, but not as a movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 29, 2009
Dwayne Johnson scores another fun action adventure with competent acting, great fights, and good direction.

Like the hicksploitation genre from which it was spawned, Walking Tall is long on violence and short on police procedure.

It is not quite violent, drunken, or naked enough to be as trashily entertaining as the Patrick Swayze cult favorite Roadhouse.

The Rock does Billy Jack, and the director catches an early flight home.

It's not a mammoth of filmmaking, that much is true, but The Rock proves he knows what he's doing and crafts a genuinely entertaining hero.

Although morally dubious and unpleasantly brutal, Kevin Bray's film is a decent enough showcase for its leading man's low-key charm and bone-crunching machismo.

The Rock's fans may buy anything he's in, but he's already shown that he's better than this type of material.

O roteiro apresenta diversos defeitos que provavelmente só foram agravados pelo fato de nada menos do que cinco roteiristas terem feito suas revisões particulares.

There are movies of uncomplicated simian enjoyment and there's Walking Tall, in which a stirring courtroom defense culminates with the dramatic ripping open of a shirt.

April 24, 2004
It's not a bad story at all, but the filmmakers strip it of any meaning or purpose. The film is merely a series of set-piece montages.

This contemporary remake of the 1973 grassroots classic retains and updates the basic plot points while losing much of the original's heart and soul.

if it weren't for the thematic undercurrent favorably depicting fascism and summary justice as the solution to all of life's little problems, it would be laughable.

...so rote it doesn't just feel like a tired genre piece--the movie actually feels like it's aspiring to be a tired genre piece!

A passable action-revenge film.

A lot happens in this movie, but much of it is unexplained.
