Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has been keeping busy lately, appearing in comedies like Baywatch and Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, video game adaptations like Rampage, and his most recent DC movie, Black Adam. He has also starred in big blockbusters like The Fate of the Furious.
We decided it was time to rerun our list of Johnson’s 10 finest movies because his resume has grown to be larger than his enormous biceps. These are the best movies to get your Rock on, including Moana,The Fast & Furious series, and The Scorpion King.
Fast and the Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw (2019)
Since The Fast and the Furious movies are so popular, I could probably load most of this list with them if I wanted to, but I’ll save it to just this one and one more from the series to highlight Dwayne Johnson’s versatility. Hobbs and Shaware unique because of how much of Dwayne Johnson’s personality is visible in the film. Hobbs and Shaw may not be the best film in the Fast and the Furious series, but it is unquestionably one of the best Dwayne Johnson films because of the action-packed ending in Samoa and the general humor of it not taking itself too seriously.
San Andreas (2015)
When it comes to his parts, Dwayne Johnson is like Super Mario in the variety of roles he plays. He is capable of taking on the roles of a sports agent, bounty hunter, and even the tooth fairy. He portrays a first responder following a seismic earthquake that shakes California in this disaster epic. Additionally, he portrays a divorcee who spends most of the film trying to save his ex-wife and their estranged daughter while abandoning countless others to perish below. The role played by Dwayne Johnson can be deemed selfish. But I only believe that he is acting as a minor cog in the much larger wheel that is the doomsday scenario.
Get Smart (2008)
Anyone aware ofJohnson’s career as The Rock in professional wrestling may recall that he initially began as a heel, playing the evil guy in his early matches.(Just watching his haughty strut made you want to yell at him.) However, Johnson hasn’t had many opportunities in his filmography to recreate that bad guy swagger, so it’s especially amusing to watch him become evil and kidnap Anne Hathaway.
Johnson is a multitalented individual, and voice acting is one of his strongest acting strengths. The best illustration of that might be seen in “Moana,” one of Disney’s top animated features from the last ten years. Johnson plays the shape-shifting demigod Maui in “Moana,” who can be a little annoying and has a self-centered obsession. Maui and Moana go across the ocean in the 2016 movie to deliver an artifact to a goddess. Johnson sings the song “You’re Welcome” while doing voice acting as Maui, which flawlessly captures Maui’s persona and demonstrates Johnson’s unexpected singing ability.
Working in family films is one of the finest ways to establish oneself in Hollywood, even though Johnson was occasionally made fun of in the wrestling industry for making this movie. As an actor, Johnson was beginning to find his voice when the 2010 movie “Tooth Fairy” came out. He portrays Derek Thompson, a hockey player who, as retaliation for shattering his girlfriend’s son’s aspirations, is made to become the tooth fairy. This film demonstrates how comfortable Johnson is with making a fool of himself by donning a pink tooth fairy costume complete with wings.
Central Intelligence (2016)
“It takes a little Hart and a giant Johnson to save the world.” The subtitle of the 2016 film Central Intelligence was that. And that’s all we have at the moment. This buddy comedy, which might not have made everyone laugh, made enough people laugh that the movie generated money at the box office. It brought the unusual duo of Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson together for the first time.
