‘Snitch,’ reviewed by Marshall Fine


HollywoodandFine.com

In “Snitch,” Dwayne Johnson – still probably better known as The Rock – plays a normal guy pressed into action to help save his son from a 10-year stretch in prison because of the mandatory-minimum sentencing drug laws in Missouri, where the film is set.

And that injustice – the kid was a dupe, caught in a situation with the drugs in his possession by a hard-charging prosecutor – is the rather flimsy hook on which the entire movie hangs.

While this could nominally be considered an action film – because of a couple of shoot-outs and car chases – “Snitch” is more a dramatic thriller with violence thrown in.
