  • 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

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

  • 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
