When it comes to laying down the law with a vengeance, one man can make a difference.

Johnny Knoxville (Jackass: The Movie) co-stars in this "bone-cracking, adrenaline-pumping" (Arizona Daily Star) ride inspired by the true story of a man who decided to take a stand and take back his town.

The Rock is shocked...shocked! that in the wake of the ol' mill shutting down his once pastoral hometown is a hotbed of vice (the PG-13 variety), gambling and youngsters hopped up on meth. Not to mention corruption At The Highest Levels of Power - the sheriff is in cahoots with the villains. How the unemployed can pay for kicks in this newfangled Sin City is not explained. (I was under the impression that a Vice Emporium could only exist by separating working men, say millworkers, from their paychecks. No mill, no paychecks.)
Of course this clocks in at eighty-something minutes. (Though we should be thankful, I guess.)
This could've been an okay knock-off of Roadhouse, if nothing else.
When his young nephew nearly dies of a drug overdose from drugs made and sold by the town's casino owner, Chris (The Rock) single-handedly (with the help of a cedar beam) demolishes the casino and its security thugs. After enduring further abuse by his former childhood friend, the casino owner, Chris becomes the new sheriff. He then fires the corrupt cops and permanently puts the evil club owner out of business and into jail.
Of course this movie is replete with great fist fights and a gun battle. And the story bears a striking resemblance to the 1989 movie ROADHOUSE, in which the club owner was a "good guy". Other than that, the similarities are obvious. And both movies have deservedly become cult classics.
TRIVIA: There were 3 previous versions of Walking Tall starring Joe Don Baker and Bo Svenson. So far, worldwide, the 2004 Walking Tall movie starring The Rock has earned a profit of 11 million U.S. dollars, and has spawned two sequels starring Kevin Sorbo. The global success of this franchise is strong and encouraging evidence that the new generation vigorously embraces the timeless principles of honesty and fair play.
An afterthought...the "run time" includes 14 minutes of credits :)
That means this movie is 1 hour 12 minutes long :) Remember those movie days ? Now you get 3 hour movies heh
It is just the feature. Thats it.
One star for bad advertisement and having to drive out to return it.
He's one man who will always walk tall in life no matter how bad it hits. THERE'S A NEW SHERIFF IN TOWN, AND HE'S NOT BACKING DOWN!!!
