People act like Kids films are all the guy is good for or why he has success and thats silly talk. Hes already shown that he can tackle more than just kids flicks. Im not saying hes the greatest thing ever but hes more than just a guy from kids flicks.
How did they not make him? His kids movies are what made him a star because most of his action movies didnt do squat that he starred in. His kids movies are what makes over 100m except for something like the fast and furious which was already a big franchise before her joined and even in that he is just a supporting actor, just like he was in GI Joe. But you take an action movie where he stars in like Drive, and it didnt make a lot.
The rock makes all his money staring in kids movies, or being a supporting star in action movies.
The point is, Austin could never star in a kids movie like the rock in make millions. The rock can make a kids movie and also be in action movies and make some money as well. All Austin can do is star in crap action movies that go straight to DVD.
No one is saying all the rock can do is kids movies. What I am saying is kids movies are why the rock can make money and Austin cant. You can claim what you want but kids movies are what made the rock a huge hollywood star and where he made all his money in starring roles.
