like a Rock Star

photo from The Rock's next film, Faster

When Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock retired from pro wrestling to become the next action star, I was really excited, especially since he had the blessing of the Last Action Hero Arnold mother effin' Schwarzenegger. Since then, the Rock's movie career has been spotty at best, but showing signs of good things to come. Disappointing films like The Mummy Returns and The Scorpion King only helped make Be Cool, Walking Tall and Get Smart look even more awesome. Only his apparent addiction to lame family movies (has Eddie Murphy taught us NOTHING?) seems to be holding the People's Champ from his signature breakout performance. But maybe the wait is over...
Faster has the Rock playing an ex-con looking to avenge the murder of his brother. Billy Bob Thornton (Bad Santa, Eagle Eye) will be one of the detectives on The Rock's trail... but he'll hafta get in line as there'll be mad folks chasing your man from both sides of the law. The hot but unfortunately-named Moon Bloodgood  (Eight Below, Terminator:Salvation) will be playing the Rock's girlfriend, so hopefully director George Tillman Jr (Notorious, Men of Honor) doesn't run from the R rating, and can make up for lost time, dropping the bloody, sweaty masterpiece that the Rock's millions (and millions) of fans deserve!

FINALLY!!! i've been so disappointed with Johnson's choice of movies since those earlier action flicks he did, so i hope this one's awesome. he really needs to do this action stuff. he needs to do a movie where the plot is "The Rock kills EVERYONE" and it looks like this might be it.

Moon Bloodgood is "unfortunately-named", are you crazy?! such an awesome name!!! XD
