There was some great parts in the movie, The ROCK did the best acting ever!

No doubt the Rock gives his all in this part. Rock is becoming the next Arnold Schwarzenegger only better in the dramatic department.

For me, this was the best acting by the ROCK in the movies so far.

Was better than I thought it would be. Happily surprised!

Surprisingly enough, this is a pretty good movie. Glad to see Jon Bernthal (who played Shane in The Walking Dead) hit the big screen. Watch this film and you’ll understand that dealing drugs is not worth it.

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. Not too bad---good performance.

A bit slow for an action thriller as it had to establish and reinforce the feelings of a father who would do anything to free his jailed son; also nice crash special effects on cars trying to stop a semi-trailer truck in the freeway chase scenes -- no contest though a bit absurd that anyone tried.

Dwayne Johnson is getting better with these dramas and he was particularly good in this movie, He held his own with the likes of Susan Sarrandon and Barry Pepper and he also brings the action! Great movie.

Pleasantly surprised, the Rock did a pretty good job of acting and I think what helped, he didn't play the macho guy beating someone up every 10 minutes.

Barry Pepper was also very good, a fine actor.
