The Rock has been taking acting lessons. He almost made me cry. The subplot of this movie is well done. I felt it, and the urgency, which is rare. Other than that, it is exactly as billed. Non-stop action, adventure, and chaos. Two separate love stories, plus a tangent of loss holding the main romance back, keep enough romantic involvement that your girl won’t notice that you’re hypnotized by the action and Alexandra Daddario‘s many, I mean MANY cleavage shots. (Thanks camera man!) Still, it is good for anyone old enough to handle the shock and mayhem of a city being destroyed and people dying. Highly recommended. – MR
