Snitch: Dady -O-No
Desperate dads do desperate deeds.
Oh dad, poor dad, someone's got your son and you're feeling so mad.
Well, dear readers, you've got the picture.
What we have here is one of those movies in which we're not supposed to care about how many random lives are lost, how much human collateral damage is done in order for the main character to save someone he (it's usually a he) loves.
Having said all that, this film wasn't as bad as it could have been. And if Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson wasn't as distractingly steroidally pumped, it could have been even better.
As it is, even Susan Sarandon, as the hard-nosed district attorney who pushes Dad into this awful scheme, couldn't save this flick, which was supposedly "inspired" by real life events.
In short, don't bother spending hard-earned $ to see this disappointment unless you're suffering from the late-winter, gotta-go-to-the-movies blues.
