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!

#35

Tooth Fairy (2010)
17%

#35
Adjusted Score: 20634%
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.

Baywatch (2017)
17%

#34
Adjusted Score: 28936%
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

#33

Doom (2005)

Planet 51 (2009)
23%

Directed By: Jorge Blanco

#31

Walking Tall (2004)
26%

#30

Directed By: Jon M. Chu

#28

Be Cool (2005)
30%

#28
Adjusted Score: 36254%

Gridiron Gang (2006)
42%

#25

#24

Faster (2010)
42%

#24

Directed By: Brad Peyton

#21
#21

#20

Skyscraper (2018)
48%

Synopsis: Former FBI agent Will Sawyer gets framed for a blazing fire in the world's tallest building. Now a wanted man... [More]

#19

San Andreas (2015)
49%

#19
Adjusted Score: 59684%
Critics Consensus: San Andreas has a great cast and outstanding special effects, but amidst all the senses-shattering destruction, the movie's characters and plot prove less than structurally sound.
Synopsis: When the San Andreas fault triggers a magnitude 9 earthquake, a search-and-rescue helicopter pilot (Dwayne Johnson) must navigate the destruction... [More]
Directed By: Brad Peyton

#18

Pain & Gain (2013)
50%

#18

Directed By: Michael Bay

#17

Get Smart (2008)
51%

#17
Adjusted Score: 59656%
Critics Consensus: Get Smart rides Steve Carell's considerable charm for a few laughs, but ultimately proves to be a rather ordinary action comedy.
Synopsis: A newly promoted field agent (Steve Carell), partnered with veteran Agent 99 (Anne Hathaway), blends inexperience, enthusiasm and ineptitude as... [More]
Directed By: Peter Segal

#16

Rampage (2018)
51%

#16
Adjusted Score: 66029%
Critics Consensus: Rampage isn't as fun as its source material, but the movie's sheer button-mashing abandon might satisfy audiences in the mood for a brainless blockbuster.

Directed By: Brad Peyton

#15

Snitch (2013)
57%

#15
Adjusted Score: 62787%
Critics Consensus: Though it features one of Dwayne Johnson's more thoughtful performances, the presentation of Snitch's underlying message is muddled by lackluster storytelling and some tonal inconsistencies.

Directed By: Ric Roman Waugh

#14

Hercules (2014)

#13

Jungle Cruise (2021)

Directed By: F. Gary Gray

Directed By: David Leitch

#10

The Rundown (2003)
