I did not request a Blu-ray of Snitch. I would not have done that because I think Snitch is the worst movie of the year, and one of the worst theatrically released movies with a legitimate star I have ever seen.

The first strike against the crime drama “Snitch” is that it casts Dwayne Johnson as a middle-American businessman. Johnson, of course, is a former pro wrestler with two movie modes — gunslinging action hero and grinning action hero.

SNITCH is a perfectly serviceable action movie and Johnson continues to take chances as an actor. He may not be doing “Hamlet” any time soon, but he keeps trying to stretch himself, which may be why he is the most interesting of the current action stars.
