If you're ever thrown in the slammer for a drug deal you had nothing to do with, you'd better hope your dad is The Rock.

Dwayne Johnson (who's apparently now old enough to have a teenage son, which kind of freaks us out) stars as a construction worker who volunteers to go undercover into the dangerous world of drug trafficking in order to reduce his son's prison sentence in "Snitch" (which obviously isn't the sequel to "Snatch," as you may have thought upon first hearing the title).

Johnson's aces at turning completely preposterous premises into solid pieces of popcorn entertainment thanks to his super-earnest acting style and just all-around awesomeness. "Snitch" looks like it's going to benefit greatly from the presence of the "Fast Five" star, especially when the main villain (Benjamin Bratt) is a guy who apparently just goes around firing automatic weapons into the air whenever the mood strikes him.

You also get Barry Pepper mumbling stats as Johnson's handler, Harold Perrineau bringing his usual brand of class to the proceedings and Susan Sarandon looking rather amused by it all. We're there.
