Snitch
What it's about:

Businessman John Matthews (Dwayne Johnson) is devastated when his 18 year old son Jason (Rafi Gavron) receives a mandatory minimum 10 year sentence in federal prison when is caught with a package he received from a friend which, unbeknownst to him, contained illicit drugs. When Jason turns down an offer from politically ambitious US Attorney Joanne Keeghan (Susan Sarandon) to reduce his sentence by manufacturing evidence against someone else, John begs Keeghan to let him go undercover instead.

John infiltrates a violent gang led by ruthless drug dealer Malik (Michael Kenneth Williams), but in his efforts to save his son, he compromises another innocent man (Jon Bernthal). And when he unexpectedly exposes a major player in the Mexican drug trade (Benjamin Bratt), the already dangerous venture turns potentially deadly.
 
What the critics said:

"Dwayne Johnson tries so hard to be taken seriously in the ponderous and preposterous drama Snitch that it hurts to watch him in much the same way it hurts to watch the weightlifting competition at the summer Olympics."
- Mary F. Pols, TIME Magazine


"Unusual for this sort of thing, Snitch is a film for which you remember the characters and actors more than the big action moments."
- Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter


"This movie executes two missions: A) to entertain us; and B) to put some big exclamation points on a couple of messages about certain drug laws in this country in need of a thorough re-examination."
- Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times

How far would you go to save your son?
