Given the intimate scale that Snitch operates on, the movie may seem insignificant when compared to the brand of sprawling crime dramas in which the fate of a major city, or even an entire country, hinges on the outcome of some dangerous investigation involving all manner of covert government organizations.
Step back and consider how many families have been -- and are still being -- torn apart by antiquated policies that have been proven time and again to have a detrimental effect on society, however, and the true scope of the tragedy becomes almost too overwhelming to bear.
Kudos to Haythe and Waugh for not only breaking the mold, but actually delivering a film of true substance about a topic that affects countless more than just the convicted. It may not mean much in terms of action, but what Snitch lacks in explosions, it more than makes up for by delivering a message that needs to be heard.

Snitch – review 2 / 5 stars 2 out of 5 stars. It might well be possible to make a good, intelligent thriller about the US war on drugs – but this isn't it. Feb 21, · Watch video · Lucky for me, I am a huge film buff and am open to sitting through any movie of any type and I just look for something entertaining, and this movie did not disappoint in that regard.
The first hour and a half of it can legitimately be classified as more of a suspense-drama than a thriller/10(K). In my opinion, this is one of the best movies Dwayne Johnson has starred in. Most of his movies are bubble-gum or unrealistic action flicks. This one, however, was a gritty drama based on true events.
