Walking Tall

Jays Rating:

If you’re a fan of The Rock you will definitely want to see the movie based on the 1973 film Walking Tall. The Rock plays a military man who has just spent 8 years in Special Forces and has come back to his small town where a new casino has been built. When he finds out the sheriff is crooked and they are selling drugs and involved in prostitution at the casino he takes the sheriffs job and proceeds to clean up the town with a big stick. This film is full of action. In fact at one hour and 20 minutes there is very little time for dialogue and it was almost finished before I found my seat. The Rocks performance was pretty good but I’m not sure if I was watching a movie or the wrestling program Smack-down. This is an enjoyable film if you don’t expect an integral plot and I’m giving it a C rating.

This movie has been given a PG-13 rating by the MPAA
