5 Best Movies with The Rock Streaming on Netflix in October 2023
The one and only Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is among the most prominent action stars in the world. Dive into his adventures on Netflix and get ready for a huge adrenaline boost!
5. The Jumanji series
It was always just a matter of time until someone attempted a remake of the classic Jumanji movies, and it just so happened to be The Rock. Johnson’s take on the films is definitely more action-packed and adult-ish, and if you enjoyed his first reboot installment, Welcome To The Jungle, you should totally give the second part — The Next Level — a shot. These are classic The Rock action comedies.
4. Gridiron Gang
Let’s be real here: who wouldn’t have wanted to have Dwayne Johnson as their coach back in their teens? But don’t be jealous of the Gridiron Gang’s football team just yet — sure, they're trained by The Rock, but they also belong to a juvenile detention center. Luckily, Johnson is one very determined coach, so he’ll surely get through to these kids and place them on the pedestal!
3. Fighting With My Family
What’s an even more fitting role for a former professional wrestler to play if not a coach? A fictional former professional wrestler, of course! The Rock’s character and his family retired from the major leagues and now travel around the country participating in smaller fights. Life is somewhat stable…until the daughter decides to follow in her father’s footsteps and become a pro herself.
2. The Rundown
If you are down for some more old–school action comedies, The Rundown is the perfect option. An almost-retired bounty hunter — Dwayne Johnson himself, no less — needs to retrieve his boss’s son from the jungle where he got allegedly lost, but his curiosity gets the better of him and he joins the younger man in search of a treasure. The Rock’s humor accompanied by Stiffler’s unique style? Give us that pie!
1. The Fast & Furious series
While the F&F franchise doesn’t feature Dwayne Johnson in every movie, he is in quite a decent chunk of them: Fast & Furious 5, 6, 7, and 8 all have The Rock, and that’s not even including his own spin-off — Hobbs & Shaw.
The actor truly shines in these action-packed films, and they are rightfully some of his most commercially successful entries. Definitely worth your time if you like watching a bunch of cool bald guys brutally explode a bunch of expensive cars.
