The rock

CBS Films

Who doesn’t love The Rock? He’s a shining example of the modern day action hero, absolutely dripping with charisma and charm, while also being built like a house and able to lay the smack down, so to speak.

Moving from the squared circle of the WWE to becoming the most profitable actor of 2013, Dwayne Johnson’s journey has been a mostly smooth one, albeit with a few missteps here and there, but those who claim that he might very well be “the next Arnie” are probably not far wrong.

Boasting the self awareness to mock himself a little, excellent comic timing and tremendous physical presence, it’s time to go through The Rock’s major films from worst to best, charting the course of his astronomical success.

And if you disagree with me, you can shine it up real nice, turn it sideways, and stick it straight u- I think you get the point.
