I still can’t get over the fact that The Rock is playing a character with a teenage son in “Snitch”. It just feels … weird somehow. He’s actually old enough that this could very well be true in real life, but still, in the movies it kinda feels wrong for some reason.
Anyways, here’s a new trailer for “Snitch”, in which The Rock takes on some bad guys in order to free his son from prison. Personally I think the better movie might be if The Rock busted his son out of prison. Or went undercover in the prison to protect him. You know, sort of like a big-screen version of “Prison Break”. Maybe they’ll go in that direction for the sequel…
Dwayne Johnson stars as John Matthews, a businessman hit hard when his teenage son is wrongfully ensnared in a drug bust and threatened with a terrifying 10-30 years in federal prison (under the US government’s draconian minimum drug sentencing laws). The only option to reduce the sentence is to “snitch.” A desperate Matthews makes a deal with the politically ambitious federal prosecutor (Sarandon) and infiltrates the operation of a violent drug dealer (Williams). When his amateur undercover work unexpectedly exposes a major player in the Mexican drug trade (Bratt), the rules suddenly change and an already dangerous venture turns decidedly deadly.
Also starring Nadine Velazquez, Jon Bernthal, Susan Sarandon, JD Pardo, Harold Perrineau, Barry Pepper, Michael Kenneth Williams, Benjamin Bratt, James Allen McCune, Melina Kanakaredes, and directed by Ric Roman Waugh.
