The Rock will always hold a special place in my 15 year old heart. Glorious, silly violence, memorable one-liners, and countless moments of action bliss make this thrill ride continuously fun to revisit, and maybe even more impressive considering the timid dreck Hollywood calls action nowadays. It’s by far Michael Bay’s best film and another shining example of the wondrous Blu-ray transfer (although the Criterion disc from many moons ago matches it punch for punch).
Exhausting, lazy, and completely derivative. What do you expect, it’s a Michael Bay film. Could be notable as the potential launching pad for star Shia LaBeouf, who’s presence resembles the only sign of life in an otherwise frantic and uninteresting action film.
