The Rock for Governor of California

Tomorrow night, Walking Tall is released in theaters. Now I know you all are going to run out and see it, right? But wait, it’s actually good! I swear! And it’s only 86 minutes long. You’ve got that much time to spare, don’t you?

It’s based on a true story about an ex-military type who comes back to his logging town in Washington State to find the main job-producing mill has been closed and a crooked casino has taken its place. The Rock plays our hero, who is determined to turn his now drug addicted town back to the way it was when he was a child. Johnny Knoxville plays The Rock’s best friend and inserts some much needed comedic relief to an otherwise nail-biting, action packed movie. On a side note, I think I’ve now developed a crush on Johnny Knoxville and wish I would have seen this movie before my trip to Austin so I would have been much nicer and less annoying towards him when I saw him in Texas. On another side note: The Rock is a good actor. Really.

All this movie is missing are some zombies.

And I swear I’m not being biased.
