A man fights to bring decency and the rule of law back to his hometown in this action drama. Chris Vaughn (The Rock) left his home in Washington State's timber country to join the Army, where he distinguished himself as a member of the Special Forces. When his hitch is over, Vaughn decides to return home to help run the family business, a sawmill, but he soon makes the unpleasant discovery that things aren't what they once were. Vaughn learns that the town's lumber industry has all but dried up, and an old high school buddy, Jay Hamilton (Neal McDonough), has turned the city into a den of vice, running a large gambling casino and strip club while selling drugs and women on the side. Angry at this turn of events, and frustrated by local law enforcement officials who are willing to ignore Hamilton's crimes in exchange for kickbacks, Vaughn decides to run for sheriff, and with the help of another old friend, Ray Templeton (Johnny Knoxville), he wins the election. But Hamilton doesn't take kindly to Vaughn's attempts to clean up the town, and Vaughn discovers Hamilton's henchmen are willing to target his friends, his family, and the woman he loves (Ashley Scott) in order to have their way. Walking Tall was based on Phil Karlson's 1973 action hit of the same name, which was in turn inspired by the true story of Buford Pusser, who was sheriff of Tennessee's McNairy County between 1964 and 1970 and gained fame for his tough tactics against the local criminal element.

one very lousy remake!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I didn't like all of his other movie that he was in, but this movie I think fit him. It was ok, I guess. Buy it, if its on sale.
I just love this movie i have seen it a lot of times and will recomend it to any fan of the rock.The rock is so aswome of how he takes this small town of his and brings it back how it was befor he left to go fight. The reall chris vans is who the movie is about i will not say any more than you have to see this movie it's one of my many #1 movies and i can't waite to buy it the rock is sooooooooooooo good in this movie.joanna.
It`s nise to see that there are still people with principles.Mr Dwayne Johnson was perfect,for this role.Just like someone who has had seen to mutch but is still disciplinary and loving.Sir....please stay so.
The Rock is not expected to be a great actor but even this crappy performance astounded me. The poor sheriff is always outnumbered against the evil casino. I don't find that in many casino towns.
This abomination is a sad commentary about the state of affairs in moviemaking today. This just may news to you all, but the original Walking Tall that starred Joe Don Baker was based on a TRUE STORY! The real life Buford Pusser actually did serve as Sheriff of McNairy County, Tennessee and did in fact barely survived an ambush that killed his wife and half his face blown away. Let's call this version for what it really is, plagerism and theft.
