All Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson movies, ranked from worst to best

  • Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is a global movie star and former legendary pro wrestler.
  • When looking back at his filmography you can see he didn't start out his career in movies on top.
  • Here we look at the evolution of stardom for The Rock by ranking all his movies.

1. "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" (2017)

The role is everything Johnson wants to get across when in a movie. He plays off his tough rep, shows he can do comedy, and is vulnerable. He captures it all here and gives a multi-layered performance that by the end you hate to see fade away once the kids leave the Jumanji game.

2. "Moana" (2016)

With the magic of Disney and the songwriting talents of Lin-Manuel Miranda, Johnson voicing the character of Demigod Maui is perhaps one of his most beautiful performances to date. All those years of trying to get into the family market finally paid off. And pulling off the singing is the icing on the cake.

3. "Fast Five" (2011)

This movie didn't just push Johnson on the path to the top level of superstardom that he's enjoying currently, but his casting also gave new life to the "Fast and Furious" franchise. Hobbs' intimidating force was the element the franchise needed to get out of its slump. But also, after a string of roles that went against type, Johnson dove in head first to a part that focused on his tough guy strengths. The audience responded. The rest is history.

4. "Central Intelligence" (2016)

There's so much to love about Johnson in this movie. His comedy is perfect and is fueled by working opposite Kevin Hart. And audiences thought so too, as the movie was one of the biggest box office hits of 2016.

5. "Pain & Gain" (2013)

Johnson is really unbelievable in this movie. Starring alongside Mark Wahlberg and Anthony Mackie as bodybuilders who get caught up in an extortion and kidnapping scheme, Johnson is the highlight as the coke-snorting, born-again loose cannon Paul Doyle. The performance director Michael Bay gets out of Johnson is one of his best ever.
