Snitch takes viewers down a dark road as Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson plays a father that is faced with very tough decisions after his son is arrested and threatened with a ten-year sentence after being set-up for delivering a package of drugs. The DEA turns the table and wants the son to set-up members of the drug cartel in order to earn his freedom, but the boy is hesitant, so the father steps in his place offering his services.
Of course, the police ride the father like a rented mule as he gets deeper and deeper into the drug game.
Eventually the father has enough as both sides begin to push him to the breaking point. Snitch looks like a typical action movie once you get past the plot. There are lots of explosions, guns, and of course The Rock laying the smack down with a tractor-trailer.
It’s well-crafted backdrop with a drama-filled situation room that offers viewers an exciting glimpse into just how far a father would go to protect his son.
Snitch is set to release in the US on February 22nd and stars Susan Sarandon, Benjamin Pratt and the lovely Nadine Velazquez.
