Construction company owner John Matthews learns that his estranged son, Jason, has been arrested for drug trafficking. Facing an unjust prison sentence for a first time offender courtesy of mandatory minimum sentence laws, Jason has nothing to offer for leniency in good conscience. Desperately, John convinces the DEA and the opportunistic DA Joanne Keeghan to let him go undercover to help make arrests big enough to free his son in return. With the unwitting help of an ex-con employee, John enters the narcotics underworld where every move could be his last in an operation that will demand all his resources, wits and courage to survive.

A decent storyline inspired by actual events. I thought that this movie would have a lot more action scenes in it but it wasn't like that until the end. At the end the action scenes are pretty good. This seems more like a drama than anything. The Rock's acting while not horrible definitely left something to be desired. The Rock just can't pull off emotional scenes like a really good actor would. He shows little emotion that he tries to make up for by just yelling. Definitely didn't work for him. Nadine Velazquez will always be the stripper from My Name Is Earl. A decent flick to see but I wouldn't pay theater prices for it. 6/10
