Walking Tall DVD

Walking Tall is a remake of [[ASIN:B000VDDDWI Walking Tall]. This time the Rock stars as an Army Officer who has come home to find his hometown full of vice and corruption. In this movie he finds a 4X4 versus an axe handle to use as a "helper". I think I'd prefer the axe handle. Highly recommended for fans of the Rock and for people who think Wrestling is real, but the moon landing was fake.

The Rock returns in his latest action film, "Walking Tall", that's supposedly based on true events, but, isn't (names, events, and places have been changed, so, what's so true about it?). Its also a remake of the original "Walking Tall" (that starred Joe Don Baker as Sheriff Buford Pusser and THAT film was based on true events). "Walking Tall" is an easy enough timepasser and overall decent film that, hopefully, will encourage fans of "The Great One" to be curious enough to check out the original "Walking Tall".
The Rock stars as Chris Vaughn, a retired member of the Special Forces, returning home to be with his family and settle down. But upon his return, Chris finds out that his hometown has changed quite a bit since he left. Drugs have been rampantly sold throughout town, the mill has been closed for five years, unemployment is way up, and the only true moneymaker in town is a casino owned & operated by an old highschool football buddy of Vaughn's, who is crooked as he is corrupt & runs the town with an iron fist. After a gruesome fight at the casino & an even worse beating at the hands of the casino's henchmen, Chris Vaughn won't stand for anymore of the town's monkey crap and before you can say, "You smell what "The Rock" is cookin'?", Vaughn runs for election of the town's sheriff (he, of course, wins the position), walks tall and carries a big stick and proceeds to lay the smacketh down on all who have destroyed the town & attempt to bring him and his family down.
The outcome is pretty predictable. I like The Rock in his movies, but, it's the movies themselves that I have a hard time with. With this one it seems everything happened rather quickly (especially when he wins the job as the towns sheriff. Did anyone vote?

This movie is great, and full of action. I was never a fan of wrestling and knew very little about the Rock. I rented this movie last night for my boyfriend and I to watch. Since I was strictly informed not to get any chick-flicks, I figured this was the best choice. It is based on a true story about a guy named Beauford Pusser (gross name) who after comming home from the millitary notices a great deal of change in his home town. The mill he and his father once worked at is now closed and the main source of income for this small town is the casino/strip club owned by his former friend. Things turn ugly whe Chris Vaughn (The Rock) notice the casino is cheating their customers. He tries to go to the police and they are just as crooked as the casino, so the Rock takes matters into his own hands. Great movie choice for ladies wanting to please their boyfriend with a non-chickflick. But don't worry ladies even if you don't like the story line, you will still enjoy it, because the Rock is very nice to look at!! Enjoy.

Walking Tall is a remake of the 1973 film, which is in turn a "semi-biopic" of Sheriff Buford Pusser. Ironically enough, Pusser was a former professional wrestler-turned lawman in McNairy County, Tennessee. For those of you keeping track, the Buford Pusser was renamed to Chris Vaughn (in the world of macho movies, this is understandable) and his background was changed from wrestling to Special Forces. Which is funny, because Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, who plays the role of Vaughn, is a former professional wrestler turned actor.

In this action movie, Vaughn returns to his hometown of Kitsap County, Washington (instead of Pusser's actual McNairy County, Tennessee) from a stint in the Special Forces. We're not sure what Vaughn did, but it must have been ugly, because he never speaks about it and answers questions about people he killed with a sad stare. Unfortunately, Kitsap County has gone downhill since the local lumber mill closed. His father, Vaughn Sr. (John Beasley) is out of work. Vaughn's sister Michelle (Kristen Wilson) has become a cop, but her son Pete (Khleo Thomas) hangs out with the wrong crowd. Heck, even Vaughn's old girlfriend Deni (Ashley Scott) has become a stripper. All these sins can be blamed on Vaughn's old high school rival, Jay Hamilton (played with sneering arrogance by Neal McDonough).

Vaughn's return is cause for celebration by his friends, including the recovering alcoholic Ray (Johnny Knoxville, of all people), who treat him to a night of gambling and debauchery at Hamilton's premiere casino. But the whole place is dirty, where gamblers cheat and drugs are given to kids. It's at this point that Walking Tall flirts with cartoonish levels of evil. Even Hamilton points this out: "Why would I sell drugs when I own the entire town already?

"Walking Tall" is a remake of a much older movie, which is based on a true story. After seeing this version, I am not so certain that I would want to see the older one.
The Rock had a hit in his last film last September, "The Rundown." He was even good in that movie, and I felt that he would become the newest action star. The actor that will make many action movies, they will all hit number one, and make tons of money. After watching "Walking Tall," I am starting to doubt that. It wasn't really that good of a movie, but it was good for what it was. I wouldn't recommend seeing it in the theatres unless you are a true action buff.
The main problem with "Walking Tall" is that it is about 81 minutes, but with credits and all it probably only hits about 75 minutes. The lenght is not the problem, but it is the content inside of it. There are many scenes that are just useless, and I have no idea why they are even included in the movie. It took a while for the plot to open up, and after thinking it would be more exciting, they throw in more useless scenes. I kept waiting for those scenes to influence the rest of the movie, but it did not.
The Rock stars as Chris Vaughn. Chris comes back to him hometown and he finds that everything is changing around him. The successful lumber yard has been changed into a casino that is run by his rival Jay Hamilton. He sees his parents, his younger sister, and her son Pete. He sees his friend Ray, and the two then go check out the casino. Chris sees a striptease from his ex-girlfriend Deni, leaves embarrassed, and then sees a craps dealer using a pair of dice that are fixed. Chris tells the guards, but it turns into a physical fight that leaves Chris wounded.
