What Paul Constant does not say here in his review of Snitch is that he truly—almost romantically—loves The Rock. He was being angsty in the newsroom about the potentially problematic real-life aspect of this new addition to The Rock's ouevre before he went to see it; his disappointment here is all too real.
So which film by The Rock should a Rock-virgin see? On Paul Constant's recommendation, I have added The Rundown to my Netflix—apparently if you want rock-solid The Rock, that's your film. Paul Constant has even said that if he could only watch one movie for the rest of eternity, The Rundown (or, you know, To Have and Have Not) would be it.
