Not a fan of The Rock but with his latest disaster movie, his portrayal is believable. He played as Chief Ray Gaines, a Los Angeles Fire Department rescue-helicopter pilot who saved lives but his own life is quite not good. His estranged wife has just moved in with his boyfriend and his daughter is going…
