Details Release Date: Feb 22, 2013; Rated: PG-13; Length: 112 Minutes; Genre: Action/Adventure; With: Dwayne Johnson and Susan Sarandon; Distributor: Summit Entertainment

You can't get blood from a stone, but you can get tears from the Rock. In Snitch, Dwayne Johnson contorts his stoic, moai-statue features to express more emotion than usual as a father who infiltrates a drug cartel to save his son from jail time. The film tries to paint in shades of gray with vague criticisms of the war on drugs, but the absurdity of its he-man Everyman plot ends up turning its moral palette a muddy brown. C-
