Alright I’ll admit it. When The Rock was in the process of doing his first couple of films I thought him as a leading man would never fly. I was wrong. The Rock has that old 80’s style macho hero thing going on and it works really well. I’ve actually enjoyed him in everything he’s been in so far. His newest flick is called Walking Tall and will co-star Johnny Knoxville (why oh why?). Anyway, here’s a little write up on the film from Rope Of Silicon:
In Walking Tall, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson plays Chris Vaughn, a retired soldier who returns to his hometown to make a new life for himself, only to discover his wealthy high school rival, Jay Hamilton (Neal McDonough), has closed the once-prosperous lumber mill and turned the town’s resources towards his own criminal gains. The place Chris grew up is now overrun with crime, drugs, and violence.
Enlisting the help of his old pal Ray Templeton (Johnny Knoxville), Chris gets elected sheriff and vows to shut down Hamilton’s operations. His actions endanger his family and threaten his own life, but Chris refuses to back down until his hometown once again feels like home.
Oh come on now folks√¢‚Ç¨¬¶ who knows√¢‚Ç¨¬¶ it could be fun. For a look at a bigger version of the poster click here
