This looks like it'll be world's better than Rundown. He's playing someone a little more human.

Did you see The Rundown? I thought Rock was pretty funny in it and it was a decent enough action/comedy. I never looked at my watch, which passes the worth the price of admission test.

Walking Tall looks good enough from that trailer. I recognize a lot of the places in the scenes especially that field. (They shot it here.)

I doubt Rock is ever going to be an "Oscar-type" actor but he's already shown he can carry a film and will have a good long career in Hollywood. I also don't know what people expect from him or movies in general.

From all accounts, he's thrown himself 150% into acting and trying to improve and be really good. It's not just a cash grab, show up, read the lines, and go home deal.

I wonder who they chose him over for these roles. I'm guessing it's people like Vin Diesel, who will hopefully fade off into B-Movie Oblivion.

Damn that looks good and even Johnny K looks cool. I didn't see Rundown so I can't say anything there, but looks good.

For the curious, the Walking Tall trailer is expected to be on...Return of the King.

I just saw the trailer today went I went to see The Last Samurai. Looks interesting, I guess. I might go see it.

Has anybody who's seen the trailer seen the original movie? I'm curious if the remake looks to be at all similar. (I'm on slow dialup and live nearly an hour from the nearest theater, so chances are good that I won't see the trailer any time soon.)

I wasn't implying Rundown sucked. It was pretty good. I just think this looks worlds better. It didn't make money though, by which I mean it didn't gross what it cost to make. Scorpion King did okay. Still, Vin Diesel's not bad. A Man Apart was fairly good, and XXX, while retarded, was a smash that Rock may have trouble touching.
