    There was a time when guys would grab a six-pack and watch this kind of flick at a drive-in. I mean that as a compliment. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    The movie itself is just a routine showcase, modest in its aspiration and effective within its limits, entertaining in the moment but, in the end, faintly silly. On the plus side, it's only 86 minutes long. show more

    Mike Clark USA Today

    Though there's something mildly disarming about a movie this unpretentious, a few more like it might end up turning The Rock into a TV actor. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    The movie itself is neither a catastrophe nor major. show more

    A dull, drab and pointless rehash, Walking Tall ironically manages to diminish the Rock's stature as both a leading man and an action star. show more

    The only thing to be said for it is The Rock. I've never seen the guy wrestle, but as a movie action hero, he's the real deal. show more

    Sheri Linden The Hollywood Reporter

    The cast acquits itself well, with the Rock evincing a quiet balance between humor and brawn. show more

    Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald

    It's blunt, to the point, aggressively manipulative and, at 86 minutes, not a minute longer than it needs to be. show more

    Jonathan Foreman New York Post

    Exciting stuff in its primitive, predictable way. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    Johnny Knoxville, famous for "Jackass,", in fact, completely convincing and probably has a legitimate movie career ahead of him and doesn't have to stuff his underpants with dead chickens and hang upside down over alligator ponds any more. show more

    This is a POS. Walking Tall was about Buford Pusser a White man. The PC crowd had to put a black guy in there what a joke
