    Snitch (***)

    Snitch is one of those films that you go in expecting one thing and get those judgments and preconceived notions blown to bits by a sharp screenplay, fantastic acting, and confident direction. A fascinating character study wrapped in the thin shroud of an action thriller, Snitch, starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is a powerful statement...
