Huh. Are we seeing the return of the muscle-bound hero archetype? I miss the old Schwarzenegger and Stallone films... Well, some of them.

No, The Rock has an insane work ethic and is maximizing the cachet he's built as a next-generation Schwarzenegger. He's also probably having one hell of a fun time doing these films. If you look at Kevin Hart, he's doing something similar but with comedy and film.

Unlike Schwarzenegger, Dwayne Johnson has a wholesomeness about him that Schwarzenegger never did during his hey day. I don't expect to hear about a sex scandal from him; he seems far more humble.

The Rock's superpower is the same as Samuel L Jackson's in that he can be in any film, good or bad, and not have its failure or success affect his brand in any way. I guess it's because of his wrestling cache in having built a durable character that he can defect to if he ever needs it. Guys like "The Rock". So they are perpetually willing to give him more chances.

Seen a bunch of these films:

Jumanji - Fun, but the sophomoric humor taints it a bit. Home video.
12 Strong - A capable paint-by-numbers tale of heroic soldiering. Really not terribly special. Home video.
The Greatest Showman - A fun film that has a really warm undercurrent on the importance of family and friends. Modest recommendation for theater viewing.
Paddington 2 - I'm dumber for having seen it. My kids liked it, but I think they're dumber too. Burn the video.
The Commuter - Loved it. Nice little action thriller. THEATER VIEWING!
Star Wars: The Last Jedi - PoS. Burn the video, flush the ashes.
Ferdinand - I love my kids, so I take them to this dreck. Burn the video.

Except The Rock is a passive aggressive bitch.

The Rock has charisma though. Some people have it and some people don't. He's got a ton of it though and it's a potent tool in Hollywood and in politics.

I thought Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was trash, anyone else?

I found it to be funny, if uneven. Definitely not a film that you need to go to the theaters to see, but I would recommend it as a rental.

And business and social life. And religion. Charisma is the most important ability one can have in life.
