Speak Softly But Carry a Big Stick. Only Don't Speak That Much, We're Pressed For Time.
Walking Tall (2004) - Starring The Rock and Johnny Knoxville - Written By David Klass, Channing Gibson, David Levien, and Brian Koppelman - Based on the 1973 Screenplay By Mort Briskin - Directed by Kevin Bray - MPAA Rating: PG-13 - 5/10
Why it was necessary to make a film like this so short, I have no idea. Walking Tall could have been, SHOULD have been much better than it was. I was especially worried when in the beginning credits, "WWE Films" was given company credit. Since when does WWE have a film division? Whatever. I didn't let that bother me too much until I saw the film itself. It was just a bunch of fight scenes strung together. Any storyline thrown in there was only thrown in to justify a fight scene. In fact, it was just LIKE watching the WWE. No disrespect intended towards the WWE, I myself have a soft spot for sports entertainment. But it has no place on the silver screen. Considering what this film was based on, it could have done so much more. The Rock was a good casting decision, it had some fun and witty lines, and that kept Walking Tall from being a total waste of money. But in the end, it was too short, and I expected much more from it.
Smitty's evaluation: 5/10 - Worth a rental.
