The Rock is Good The Film is Basic

The Rock certainly has a future in film. His natural character seems to flow very nicely in his role as Chris Vaughn, a man determined to bring his town back to the good people from corrupt Casino Owner played by Neal McDonough.

Whereas the pacing is fairly fast, there are a few moments that are glossed overy quickly. The one that stands out the most is when the Rock goes from almost being thrown in jail to town sherrif. Any sense of realism goes out the window with the trial. At the moment, the movie turns into another oridinary Stephen Segal action movie which is long on action and fighting and short on brains and creativity.

Don't get me wrong, The Rock's personality does light up the screen. He has a style and certainly has a future in motion pictures outside of the slam bam action thrillers. However, this film is a basic slam bam action thriller with little else to offer outside of its main star.
