      Adi 1 The Rock is an entertaining action flick which features good performances, a good storyline, and great action. You are definitely missing out as an action fan if you haven't checked this film out. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/27/24 Full Review Sebastian L Bay really likes cool movies, so he makes cool movies. It's just that in the meantime he completely forgets about character motivation and what lines actually mean. The end result is an audio visual thrill ride that pretty much resembles a long music video without good music and has the depth of a puddle of water. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/05/24 Full Review Cody W I am literally mind blown. THE ROCK is absolutely one of Michael Bay's best movies, thanks to its off the charts action sequences and incredible performances by Nicolas Cage and Sean Connery. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/15/23 Full Review Rami A A Bond type of film that doesn't feel like a Bond film! Sean Connery and Nicolas Cage make an excellent team. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/26/24 Full Review Jean D Sean Connery quase sempre entregava filmes incríveis! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 10/19/23 Full Review Zach T Nicolas Cage and Sean Connery provide a thrilling action film set in Alcatraz.

      Jonathan Rosenbaum Chicago Reader Very entertaining action hokum that benefits hugely from the uses made of the three stars. Jun 14, 2022 Full Review Gene Siskel Chicago Tribune There isn't a shot, scene or sequence in The Rock that doesn't move furiously, typically with colored lights flashing into our faces or onto those of the actors. Rated: 2.5/4 May 27, 2014 Full Review Doug Thomas Seattle Times You might need to take Dramamine before entering a Michael Bay movie. The one-time music-video director has an annoying habit of finding the tightest shots, editing the heck out of them and scoring the works to loud music. Rated: 2/4 May 27, 2014 Full Review Zita Short InSession Film The Rock still feels generic and lacking in any of the flourishes that distinguish hacks from legendary auteurs. Rated: D+ Feb 2, 2023 Full Review Rob Gonsalves Rob's Movie Vault Much of the action feels thin and inauthentic. Rated: C Sep 1, 2022 Full Review Sheila Reid Women in the Life The special effects are reason enough to check this one out. May 31, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
