“Snitch” stars Dwayne Johnson (“Fast Five”) as a father who goes undercover to help bust drug dealers in order to reduce his own son’s sentence.

Typically films with a “message” collapse under the weight of their own self-importance, but writer/director Ric Roman Waugh (“Felon”) keeps “Snitch” loose enough that while it’s not a great movie, it is indeed an entertaining one which just happens to have a point to make.

The movie is rated PG-13 for drug content and sequences of violence.
