5Pain & Gain (2013)

This action-comedy film was created by Michael Bay, and many consider it better than Transformers. The Rock plays Paul, a former convict who found God and want to live life accordingly. This character is in constant conflict between what’s he’s doing and what is the right thing to do. His inner struggle is one of the focal points of this film. He’s a lighthearted fool, involved in a serious crime, who wants to be a good guy.

There was no better person to carry out this role than Dwayne Johnson. His sympathetic, with a funny storyline. It’s not easy to play big dumb guy, but Johnson does it perfectly.
