The Rock finally gets the role he deserves.By Ozor (92 reviews) from Essex , 10 Dec 2010
[Highly rated reviewer]This movie isn't anything groundbreaking, it does nothing unique and it doesn't try to. It's an action movie with a fairly decent plot.
The main attraction to this movie will no doubt be The Rock, he plays an ex-convict looking for revenge and stopping at nothing to get it. This is the role he has been in need of, none of the usual gimmicks of his make an appearance, no wrestling, no eyebrows and no cheap quotes. In fact The Rock doesn't say much in this movie at all, which adds to the character and makes him more believable.
This movie is a break The Rock so desperately needed. It isn't an all out action movie so don't go in expecting The Expendables type fights, it's bloody, gritty and tense.
I would give it a good 4/5 as like I said before, it doesn't do anything new or original, but what it tries to do it does well.

The rock rocks but the story not so much!By Nene89 (35 reviews) , 17 Jun 2013average film. The rock is great in it, the story is so so, not a film i'd want to watch again. Good action scenes. But definatly not the best of the rock's film.

Dwanye entertainsBy Bodds (29 reviews) , 13 Jun 2013This is just a action revenge movie and is well shot not that bad acting and nice fast pace. Look it Dwanye has the lead so you should know what is coming. Just enjoy it is not going for an Oscar
