The Rock, as if bidding for another appearance at the Republican National Convention, stars in this parable of neo-con justice.

A cartoon of retribution and revenge.

April 3, 2004
The film is comprised of four violent action scenes tied together by nearly 50 minutes of alternately hilarious (unintentionally, of course) and dull filler.

April 1, 2004
The original 1973 movie teetered on the brink of vigilantism. This remake produced by World Wrestling Entertainment unhesitatingly dives in with a triple gainer.

OK as a WWE grudge match, but not as a movie.

April 1, 2004
Remake of the '70s vigilante smash is a low-grade meat-and-potatoes action flick with The Rock and Johnny Knoxville providing a little gravy.

April 2, 2004
A dull, drab and pointless rehash, Walking Tall ironically manages to diminish the Rock's stature as both a leading man and an action star.

Walking Tall's one-note vigilante action won't serve The Rock's star ambitions.

The miscast Rock never comes close to matching Joe Don Baker's sweaty, ungainly, force-of-nature hick heroism.

This is a classic example of a film assuming we will be on the side of its protagonist just BECAUSE he's the protagonist. In fact, he behaves like a big, dumb animal.

Cheap, ludicrous, and sloppy.
