I liked it when there was an air of tension between them because Brian was/is a cop. When they're bros, it's nothing interesting.

He was ok in Running Scared though.

I thought it was a fun buddy dynamic in Fast 5, and you always get the feeling Dom is one scene away from being mad at him.

I bought that from a bargain bucket years ago but never got around to watching it.

It's not bad, but not great. Very energetic. But the overuse of swearing was like the gangbangers from End of Watch. It got grating.

I also don't like how they try these over the top silly wrestling moves in movies like Dom carrying the guy on his shoulders while Rock clothes lines him...it's just stupid to me. It's like they are trying to get more over the top each movie. Next time it's gonna have Stallone and Schwarzenegger and they will hijack a car shipment to Mars.

I think Dwayne is a phenomenal actor. He has so much charisma. Just because his lines were bad doesn't mean he is

Haha, my thoughts exactly.

And unlike other wrestlers who've tried to act, the Rock has actual charisma, so I don't mind him at all.

The Rock is not an awful actor. The guy has great charisma, most of his lines in the last movie were funny because he was turned all the way up. And yes they are trying to go bigger with each movie, the fact that they bring down a plane should say so.

I wouldn't necessarily call Arnold or Sylvester Stallone "great actors" either - they're 'action heroes,' the only one I recall who is primarily (has been in more action movie than any other genre) an action hero in the 'classic action film' and a legitimately good actor is Bruce Willis (maybe more that I'm forgetting, I didn't count Liam Neeson since I'm pretty sure he's just become an action hero more recently in his career). More recently another actor that seems to be 'classic action hero,' but also not the best of actors - Jason Statham. Basically, they get the job done with charisma and seem like bad asses.

Name the best movie Rock has been in. Sean Williams Scott has a ton of charisma. So does Johnny Knoxville.

I find a lot of oddities here.

1) When has this series ever had the best of actors?
2) When have "just action hero" actors been the best of actors?
3) I'd say The Rock has been in entertaining movies, but not the "best" if looked at critically like it seems you are. But I'd say the same for every "just action" hero movies outside of the 80s. These are fun movies, not academy award nominee movies.

We need a gif of the plane being taken down with Vin flying out of the cockpit. This movie looks like Fast Five on steroids...great thing!

The best thing about all these absurd stunts so far is that you can easily tell that they are all mostly practical. They all look stunning

I am totally fine with action heroes and action movies but my complaint is that this series is becoming more and more over the top and it seems like franchises such as this one for whatever reason are dying to get wrestling stars in lead roles when they are usually always the weak links in movies. I do not know why people get so excited over Rock. I am also not a huge fan of Ahnold and my favorite movie of his is the one where he plays a stiff robot with no emotions. I have no idea how Arnold still gets work. It's movie studios trying to cash in on nostalgia. We can get great action movies with great casts. There are plenty out there. You don't have to watch WWE to find the next action star but I think that is what some of these producers are doing.

Do you not think you are the minority in thinking Dwayne Johnson is a terrible actor with no charisma?

I don't know why you're surprised they're trying to go bigger.

As far as I know the only wrestler is The Rock and he started appearing in action movies -- way back in 2003. He isn't a "new wrestler becoming an actor" that they just pulled in out of nowhere. He was in the last film, so with a building cast like this franchise - it would be a MASSIVE let down considering the pull his character had in the previous film and connectivity these movies now have. They've kind of become like kick ass soap operas for dudes in how drawn out the story is. Alright, so - you're saying you're not even an Arnold fan outside of 'Terminator' even of his earlier work, that says all that you need to in regards there. We DO get great action movies with great casts, this is more of an "action hero" actor type cast - which it seems you have a problem with, thus obviously these films aren't made for you. Go watch one of the action films that revolve around the cast's acting abilities, that's your thing. And again - your last sentence makes absolutely no sense unless another wrestler was brought in and there it would have nothing to do with The Rock since he's had movies for 10 years now. I would hardly call an action hero actor who's been in movies for 10 years as them trying to "find the next action star" - since he's been in movies for quite some time now...
