The movie is excellent, inspirational, and the Rock is, as always, fabulous. It was a bit "gritty", but still excellent. The lack of special effects gave that much more feel to the fact that it was a true story. I did not even mind the fact that I paid $15.99 and two weeks later got an email from Amazon that it was down to $9.99. Still worth every cent. This film should be mandatory viewing for social studies classes; let's teach people to live a good life, protect our world, and "Walk Tall".
