Dwayne Johnson is one of the more versatile actors in Hollywood ranging from Disney family movies to comedy to over the top action flicks with ease. He’s back on the big screen in “Faster” which promises lots of big guns, fast cars, Johnson’s big guns back in action with scads of fight scenes and plenty of action.
In “Faster”, Dwayne Johnson (The Rock) plays an X con who is after the guys who double crossed him and killed his brother. His plan is to find and kill them all, no forgiveness. “I’m angry and I have a big gun”, Johnson quipped during an ET interview that’s included in the attached YouTubes. Billy Bob Thornton, Carla Gugino and Maggie Grace are all on the case to find and stop Johnson in his violent quest.
In the ET interview Johnson talked about taking time during the last several years of acting in the family and comedy genre to take lots of acting classes to improve his acting overall and feels like doing all sorts of roles has helped him immensely in his journey to be a better actor. He’s certainly come a long way since “The Scorpion King” and I found him very enjoyable in “The Run Down” and “Walking Tall”.
