‘Snitch’ Trailer: The Rock Battles a Drug Cartel to Save His Son

Snitch Movie

What would you do if your son was facing a ten-year mandatory minimum drug sentence for a crime he swears he didn’t do? You’d probably make a lot of road trips to the prison with cigarette carton gift baskets over the next decade, but if you’re Dwayne Johnson, you kick everyone’s ass and help Susan Sarandon take down a kingpin.

The thing to look for in Snitch will be the stunts. The trailer gives a glimpse of 18-wheeler and fist-fighting action, but director Ric Roman Waugh started out doing stunts for flicks like Lethal Weapon 2, Total Recall (1990) and probably close to a hundred others, so it’ll be exciting to see what he pulls out of the ammunition box.

Plus, as hard as it is to believe a former wrestler did this, Johnson has emerged as a truly charismatic, aggressive lead who’s shown some real range. He’s a hell of a lot of fun to watch, especially because he’s believable as a badass, so even in what looks like a straightforward action movie with a slightly unbelievable (yet based on true events!) story, he just might make it shine.

Apparently this characters has never seen The Wire.

Snitch is in theaters February 22, 2013.
