All Dwayne Johnson Movies Ranked by Tomatometer

If we had known that The Rock was indeed cooking a biggest-star-in-the-world movie career, we would’ve stuck our noses up in there a lot sooner. Yes, we would have sniffed up those early stinkers Doom and Be Cool, because at least nestled somewhere in there was The Rundown, which featured peak Seann William Scott and a cameo from Arnold Schwarzenegger passing the action torch to this upstart, the man who would be Dwayne Johnson. And indeed Johnson was the action man of the mid-aughts, tacking on the likes of Walking Tall to his brawny resume. And like his action forebears, he made a curve into family comedy, releasing The Game Plan, The Tooth Fairy, and Race to Witch Mountain to the delight, we assume, of some people. On a scale between Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot to Kindergarten Cop, we rate Johnson’s comedy career detour Top Dog.

But things turned around in 2010. That’s the year he jumped face first off a building into the pavement. And thus was born a new action/comedy classic: The Other Guys. Meanwhile, ’70s-style throwback Faster showed a leaner, meaner Johnson back in a hard-hitting groove. He was invited into the Fast & Furious family, helping turn Fast Five into the franchise’s first Certified Fresh entry and a global phenomenon. San Andreas, Rampage, and Skyscraper turned him into the master of disaster, while Moana and Fighting With My Family, which he also produced, are among his highest-rated movies.

Central Intelligence was the first collaboration Johnson had with Kevin Hart, which was merely the opening for the main course: Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, the unlikely reboot-sequel that connected with audiences and critics worldwide. He, Hart, Jack Black, and Karen Gillan all came back for Jumanji: The Next Level, and we’re taking a look back on all of Dwayne Johnson’s movies ranked by Tomatometer!

Directed By: Brett Ratner

#15

Snitch (2013)

Rampage (2018)
51%

Directed By: Peter Segal

#18

Pain & Gain (2013)

Directed By: Michael Bay

#19

Skyscraper (2018)
48%

#19

#20

San Andreas (2015)

Directed By: Brad Peyton

#21
#21

#22
Adjusted Score: 49456%

Directed By: Brad Peyton

#23
#23
Adjusted Score: 48414%

#24

Faster (2010)

Gridiron Gang (2006)
42%

#25
Adjusted Score: 45985%
Critics Consensus: The role of probation officer Sean Porter fits Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson like a glove; however, the execution is so cliched, the youths' stories (based on real events), fail to inspire.

Directed By: Phil Joanou

#26
#26
Adjusted Score: 44408%

#28

Red Notice (2021)
36%

#29

Be Cool (2005)
30%

#29

Directed By: F. Gary Gray

#30
#30
Adjusted Score: 35394%

Directed By: Jon M. Chu

#31

Directed By: Andy Fickman

#32

Walking Tall (2004)

Directed By: Kevin Bray

#33

Planet 51 (2009)
23%

#33
Adjusted Score: 26224%
Critics Consensus: Planet 51 squanders an interesting premise with an overly familiar storyline, stock characters, and humor that alternates between curious and potentially offensive.
Synopsis: When astronaut Capt. Charles "Chuck" Baker lands on Planet 51, he thinks he is the first life form to set... [More]
Directed By: Jorge Blanco

#34

Doom (2005)
18%

#34
Adjusted Score: 23657%

#35

Baywatch (2017)
17%

#35
Adjusted Score: 35753%
Critics Consensus: Baywatch takes its source material's jiggle factor to R-rated levels, but lacks the original's campy charm -- and leaves its charming stars flailing in the shallows.

Directed By: Seth Gordon

#36

Tooth Fairy (2010)
17%

#36
Adjusted Score: 21210%
Critics Consensus: Dwayne Johnson brings the full force of his charm (and his appropriately pale chompers) to the title role, but flat direction and a committee-written script render The Tooth Fairy unacceptably dull.
