Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson In The Criminal Underworld - Trailer For Snitch

Patrick Dane writes for Bleeding Cool

You know your childhood is definitely over when the Rock starts playing the father of young adults. I suppose it is now normal to have a man in his forties built like the Hulk.*

This new trailer for Snitch, which i supposedly ‘based on true events’, shows Dwayne Johnson and Jon Bernthal as two fathers getting involved in Cartel-y, druggy, underworldy happenings in order to save their families.

Thanks to Yahoo for the trailer.

Directed by ex-stuntman Ric Roman Waugh, it isn’t really a surprise that the film seems to center around manly men doing manly things for manly reasons.

There doesn’t seem to be a lot of new ideas in here, but hopefully the film will focus on making the convicted son an interesting character that we can actually invest in. Usually where ‘these kinds of films’ fall down is having the son type just act as a catalyst for the main character to get involved in the nasty things.

Am I hoping for too much? Probably.

*Brendon’s note: I was an adult before there even was a Rock. Patrick not seeing beyond the edges of his own little generation there. Bless.
