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.

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.

What makes it stand out is the fact that there's some subversive politics happening beyond the fighting that is refreshing.

Is this a dumb movie? Yes. Is it rich with character? No. But is it fun? Yes -- thanks to The Rock's Bam-Bam antics, agreeable demeanor, and natural screen abilities.

Walking Tall is nothing great. It's also not bad -- fast-moving, efficient, with plenty of surface energy, if you don't care about The Rock's Ashcroftian disregard for the rights of evildoers.

Exciting stuff in its primitive, predictable way.

Yes, it's all astoundingly dumb. But it's also surprisingly effective, largely due to Johnson, a charismatic, likable screen presence who displays none of the arrogance and vanity of a Vin Diesel or Steven Seagal.
