Walking Tall


Not violent, drunk, or naked enough to be Swayze cult fave "RoadHouse," The Rock plays an extension of his WWE persona in this remake, with a small town twist. He walks tall and literally carries a big stick, one that breaks windows and bruises baddies. Like Mr. T, he's got a PG-13 ass-kicking message for the kids. And at a brisk 85 minutes, it's either the shortest preview ever, or the Cliff's Notes version of the original.
