    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Not the usual action movie. It's too odd for that. Based on a true story, it has the weirdness of real life, which is good. But also like real life, it has that funny way of not making much sense or being all that enjoyable. show more

    In its focus on an ordinary family facing a nightmarish scenario, Snitch is a terrifying but relatable story. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Directed by veteran stuntman Ric Roman Waugh, Snitch is shot with a mix of nervous close-ups and weirdly vertiginous angles. show more

    Snitch is like watching an elephant on ice: inelegant, but you admire the effort. show more

    Todd McCarthy The Hollywood Reporter

    Unusual for this sort of thing, Snitch is a film after which you remember the characters and actors more than the big action moments. show more

    Scott Tobias NPR

    Whatever lizard-brain fun might have been had in watching Johnson do battle against a drug cartel is weakened by the occasional hard tug at the social conscience. The film winds up divided against itself. show more

    Michael Phillips Chicago Tribune

    It's an entertaining picture — pulp, coming from a place of righteous indignation. show more

    Rick Groen The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    Pleasant because, instead of the usual hero-and-mayhem jive, Snitch is an honest exercise in workmanlike craft. This is to film what ceramic is to floors or Billy is to bookcase or what a third-line centre is to a winning hockey team – hardly great but good and solid and functional. show more

    Who would have guessed Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson would deliver the best work of his career playing a guy who squares off against a pack of small-time street thugs. show more

    Tom Russo Boston Globe

    Snitch gets a decent amount of drama (and action, of course) out of the argument that there’s paying for a crime, and then there’s overpaying. show more

    This is a well-measured thriller that had me squirming in my seat and aching for the success of its protagonists. This movie needs to be seen. Best of 2013 so far - no joke.

    I loved, loved, loved this movie. Best acting from The Rock. I was pleasantly surprised. Great performance. Would love to see him again in these type of serious roles.

    Give credit to the screen writer and director on this one. They made it believable. They did not make \"The Rock\" invincible. I bought into it as there was nothing to laugh at that looked too Hollywood. It is worth seeing.

    Great movie, lots of action, and worth the price of the ticket to see it.
