The Rock: Every Movie Ranked From Worst To Best

35. Longshot (2001)

Longshot Dwayne Johnson

It's somewhat fitting that Dwayne Johnson's second movie role is also in his worst ever feature film. 2001's Longshot was created primarily to promote a number of late-90s and early-2000s pop bands such as NSYNC, Lil' Kim, Britney Spears and numerous other, lesser-known acts.

The Rock mercifully only has a cameo appearance in the film, as a mugger who attempts to rob two women, but hilariously gets his a** kicked without much fuss.

The film never even made a fraction of its $20 million budget back and went straight-to-TV in most countries, so at least all but The Rock's most hardcore fans have never even heard of it. Things only got better for Dwayne from here, thankfully.
