The Rock: Can he be an action star again?

Posted on

Introducing Faster, the latest action-packed thrill ride from the star of…The Tooth Fairy? Remember when Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson used to make action movies? Well, he’s at it again, judging by the teaser for his upcoming fall release. It has all the requisite ingredients for a testosterone-heavy flick: guns, cars, a leather jacket, and a strip club. But once a guy has made The Game Plan, can he still be believable as an action hero? Or will The Rock always be The Rock, no matter how many kiddie movies he’s made? Take a look at the trailer — embedded after the jump — and let us know if you’re still willing to smell what he’s cooking.
