Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson might just be the busiest actor in Hollywood. This week, he is headlining a movie for the third time in the past seven months; first there was Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, then there was Rampage, and now there’s Skyscraper. He is also attached to at least 10 films in development right now, according to his IMDB page. The Rock’s latest is Skyscraper, which is now playing in theaters.
If you’re in the mood for more of him after seeing Skyscraper, or you want to get your fix of The Rock without heading out to the theater, let’s take a look at some Dwayne Johnson movies that are available for streaming right now.
Get Smart (Netflix)
Some early evidence that The Rock could excel in a comedy came in 2008’s Get Smart, based on the popular TV series of the same name.
Johnson plays Agent 23, a ridiculously cool operative who Maxwell Smart idolizes, although it turns out he’s a bit of a jerk. The Rock is hilarious in the role of a tough guy who everyone is fearful of, as in one cringe-worthy scene where he staples a piece of paper to a man’s head. Lest you think this is just a supporting role for Johnson, though, his character winds up being crucial to the plot.
Get Smart is now available to stream on Netflix.
In 2016, Johnson lent his voice to one of the finest Disney animated films in recent memory, Moana. He plays the role of Maui, a demigod who Moana goes off on her adventure with.
Johnson once again has the chance to flex his comedic muscles in this film, and he even gets an entire musical number; yes, as WWE fans will know, The Rock can indeed sing.
Moana is available to stream on Netflix.
Over on Hulu, one of The Rock’s most recent movies, Baywatch, is currently available to stream.
Based on the TV series of the same name, Baywatch stars Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron as two lifeguards who uncover a criminal plot their Florida beach.
Unfortunately for The Rock, this was not one of his most well-received movies; it got a low Rotten Tomatoes score of 18% and bombed at the box office. If you’re curious to see The Rock in a raunchy comedy, though, Baywatch is up there for streaming now. Just keep your expectations in check for this one.
The Rundown (Hulu)
Looking for some earlier Dwayne Johnson work? If so, The Rundown would be worth a watch.
Released in 2003, this was The Rock’s first major film that was not a part of the Mummy franchise. He plays a bounty hunter and aspiring chef who goes on one last job to rescue a mobster’s son from the Amazon.
The film earned pretty solid reviews from critics, with a Rotten Tomatoes score of 70% and with critics praising the chemistry between The Rock and Seann William Scott. It’s now available for streaming on Hulu.
The Tooth Fairy (HBO)
One of the weirdest movies Johnson has made would definitely have to be The Tooth Fairy.
In this 2010 comedy, Johnson plays a minor league hockey player who, after telling his girlfriend’s daughter that the tooth fairy doesn’t exist, has to become the actual tooth fairy himself.
The movie received mostly bad reviews, although critics noted that Johnson was charming in the role. Purely for the novelty of seeing The Rock with wings, the movie might be worth checking out. Somtimes, you just need to see it for yourself.
Race to Witch Mountain (STARZ)
Moana was not The Rock’s first collaboration with Disney; he was previously in the studio’s 2009 live-action kids film, Race to Witch Mountain.
In this fantasy adventure, Johnson plays a cab driver who has to protect two children with paranormal abilities from being captured by an evil organization.
The movie received mixed reviews overall, although many critics felt it was relatively satisfying family entertainment. The film is currently available on STARZ.Read the original article from The Cheat Sheet
