Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson often has mixed humor in with his physicality on-screen lately, but he plays it strictly for action in this familiar-feeling tale of a newly paroled convict bent on avenging his brother's murder.
He becomes a target himself, though, in the sights of both a soon-to-retire policeman (Billy Bob Thornton) and an aspiring assassin (Oliver Jackson-Cohen). Carla Gugino and Maggie Grace ("Taken") also appear. DVD extras: deleted scenes; alternate ending. ** (R: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray)Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
