Movie Reviews

  • unfortunately for the audience, this involves a lot of stunt driving and weapons fire - which would be OK, except that like all the violence in this PG-13 movie, the results are sanitized and bloodless
    2 of 4 by Lou Lumenick [New York Post ]
  • the storytelling is slick - we sort of need DEA agent Barry Pepper's random, mangy biker beard to offset all the upscale gloss - but as thrillers go, this one is pretty lean
    2.5 of 4 by Tom Russo [Boston Globe ]
  • surprises with how effective this mixture is
    Review rate : B by Emanuel Levy [EmanuelLevy.Com ]
  • Snitch wants to shine a light on heavy-handed sentencing laws and the absurd lengths necessary to reduce time, but it's too big a movie for that story
    by Scott Tobias [NPR ]
  • Johnson is a consummate entertainer, and he's adept at giving audiences what they want, even if it's ultimately to his film's detriment
    Review rate : B- by Nathan Rabin [A.V. Club ]
  • it's nice to acknowledge that The Rock can act - he's got some thespian talent to go along with the brawn and one-liners. The problem is, Snitch isn't the best option to showcase what he can do with more serious, less cartoonish material
    2 of 4 by James Berardinelli [ReelViews ]
  • isn't a great film. But after the run of brawling, over-the-top shoot-em-ups/drive-em-ups that have cluttered Johnson's resume it's good to see him try his hand at acting, even if he is just as over-matched as the fellow he's playing
    2.5 of 4 by Roger Moore [Movie Nation ]
  • in its focus on an ordinary family facing a nightmarish scenario, Snitch is a terrifying but relatable story
    3 of 4 by Claudia Puig [USA Today ]
  • for all its violence and road rage, "Snitch" doesn't disintegrate into noisy popcorn nonsense. It keeps a shaky finger on the domestic turmoil caused by the decisions of John and Daniel
    by Stephen Holden [New York Times ]
  • designed to make empathetic citizens question the system, this strangely compelling issue pic plays less to auds' hearts than to their craving for testosterone
    by Peter Debruge [Variety ]
  • a serious-minded, well-made yarn of a father's risky descent into the drug underworld to save his son
    by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter ]
