Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock, has transitioned from pro wrestling to Hollywood. He is arguably the greatest wrestler of all time and was cast in great movies.
Some of his movies have been big hits, like Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and Fast Five, while others have been disasters with critics and at the box office. Here are his five flops in Hollywood:
In "Faster" (2010) Johnson stars as a man released from prison and making the people who killed his brother pay for their crimes. It was the beginning of Dwayne's journey to became an action star.
"The Scorpion King" (2002) this movie was from The Mummy franchise and flopped due to terrible CGI. Johnson plays a strong role, rich in charisma. It's a combination of drama, comedy, and action.
"G.I. Joe: Retaliation" (2013) was better than the original movie. He had earned the nickname "Franchise Viagara" since his involvement in the Fast and Furious franchise had helped him.
The movie made more money than its predecessor and made Johnson a bigger star. Although the critics might not have liked it, people praised it.
"The Game Plan" (2007) is a Disney film that was a hit, but overall it was a flop. The film is about a football player who finds out that he has an 8-year-old daughter and breaks loose.
"Baywatch" (2017) is a remake of an old TV show from the 1990s. Dwayne was the charismatic one in this film. No matter how bad the film's reviews are, he always has a connection with his audience.
