Fact is acting like Dwayne is an A-lister is laughable. He is above WWE Studios, however. We can all joke about that cinematic abomination The Tooth Fairy, but I'm going to assume he made a shitload of money for appearing in that steaming heap of... yeah.
The term "A lister" covers more than just a dozen people. It's not Tom Hanks, Johnny Depp, Tom Cruise, then everyone else is a B lister. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is a big name who grosses a lot of money in every film he's been attached to for the past few years. Even guys who usually get co-starring roles are A-listers. Morgan Freeman for example. The Rock has factually been on that level in terms of drawing and earnings power at the box office for awhile.
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson was listed as the 8th most bankable star of the year last year. When you're top 10, you're not B list dude. You put The Rock in your movie, and it makes a shitload.
He's an A list actor now. He wasn't always A list, obviously, but he has been for a couple of years now at least.
It's not an opinion, it's a fact! Most of his movies are generic action films poorly scrypted.
Actually, that is an opinion. Not a fact at all.
What's up with everybody bashing the Tooth Fairy, Game Plan, & Journey 2?
They were good for what they were, which is a kids film.
It's one of the "cool" geek things to do on the forum, apparently.
