A pointless fun which while not a true remake - it steaks the title, and very (VERY!) little more. After serving the U.S. military, Chris Vaughn returns to his hometown,? Looking for work. The local mill was closed several years earlier, and in its place; a casino (owned by his former friend, Jay Hamilton), which is the main source of jobs and income; and problems. Chris quickly realises the town's rotten to the core; with mobsters, and a corrupt sheriff, After being elected sheriff, is up to him to clean up the town. Soon,he's fighting against the mobsters to keep his promise.Written by

What makes Walking Tall such a good movie, in my opinion, is that you really want The Rock to beat the bad guys. Obviously, in these type of movies the good guys always have to win, so it's really important that the director make sure the good guys come out looking much better than the bad guys so that when the good guys win, the audience is satisfied. This movie does that perfectly having The Rock have something extremely cowardly done to him near the beginning of the film. Johnny Knoxville adds a lot to this movie as well with some good humor. Overall it's just good entertainment the whole time.
So check this out some time because it's a prime example of how a slightly more adult feel-good movie should be done.
