"I'm not going to let either side dictate our fates."
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has been busy taking part in action movie franchises like Fast Five, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island and the upcoming G.I. Joe: Retaliation, but his latest movie, the action thriller Snitch, mixes action with a more personal story of a father trying to protect his son.
Inspired by a PBS Frontline special about changes to U.S. drug policy, Snitch follows Johnson as a suburban father who makes a deal with the DEA to go undercover in order to infiltrate a drug cartel after his teenage son is falsely arrested on drug charges. Johnson teams up with an ex-con (The Walking Dead actor Jon Bernthal) to bring down the cartel, and risks himself and his family to save his son's life, as revealed in the movie's recently released Super Bowl ad.
Snitch was directed by Ric Roman Waugh (Felon), who also wrote the script. Benjamin Bratt (Traffic), Barry Pepper (The Kennedys) and Susan Sarandon co-star.
