Writer/Director Ric Roman Waugh’s Snitch has Dwayne Johnson as its star and a lot of people like Dwayne Johnson.  In fact, the “regular-people” audience with whom I saw this film applauded at its end.  And, no, it wasn’t just because it was over.

There is some good action, but the story demands too many leaps of faith.  A lot of people have their lives disrupted and/or die because a spoiled teen has been spending too much time being indolent instead of working for a living.

The standout performance is Jon Bernthal, who plays an ex-con, who is trying to go straight.  I look forward to seeing him in something more interesting.
The greatest leap of faith is to believe Dwayne Johnson’s character could go into the Witness Protection Program without fear someone of his size wouldn’t be recognized in a few hours, if the cartel just put the search out through social media.

Snitch gets a 3 out of 5 for the fan base.
