The Rock has come a long way from the days he spent grappling with other large sweaty men while wearing a speedo and elbow pads, so far that nobody even calls him The Rock anymore. Now that he is a respected actor he goes by Dwayne Johnson. Dwayne Johnson has tried his hand at action films such as Doom, Walking Tall, and The Rundown. Being a former professional wrestler, he was a pretty good action star. It is fairly believable that a man of his stature could beat the crap out of other men. Then something changed.
Dwayne Johnson, the man known for kicking the asses of others, made the transition from action star to the leading man in kid’s movies. Now we see him in movies like The Game Plan, Race to Witch Mountain, and Tooth Fairy. For testosterone laden men like myself, this is a bit of a disappointment. Still, he has made quite a name for himself in Hollywood and looks as if he will continue his trend of starring in kid’s movies. His next project is the Journey to the Center of the Earth sequel, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. One thing that can be said for certain is that Dwayne Johnson will be better for action scenes than Brendan Fraser. I expect Journey 2 will do well, but personally I am looking forward to Protection more. Protection features Dwayne Johnson as an American Special Forces operative who goes up against a Mexican Cartel. That is the Dwayne Johnson I want to see!
