you know this or not, Dwayne "The Rock"
Johnson is one of the finest actors of our time. Let
me explain...have you ever seen those so called real
"actors" try and fake their way through
a night of SNL? Most of them are pure crap! The Rock
kicked most of their asses in terms of acting, delivery
and comic timing each time he appeared on SNL and
it only stands to reason why he would. Wrestling is
nothing if it's not about acting, delivery and timing.
So where am I going with this? Well, The Rock will
be appearing in the upcoming movie adaptation of Midway's
"SpyHunter: Nowhere To Run" slated for a
later 2006 release. He'll also be appearing in the
game of the same name.
the video game has most likely been around much longer
than you, dear reader. It debuted in arcades in 1983
courtesy of Midway/Bally and was an instant hit for
years thanks to its addicting gameplay and catchy
Peter Gunn music. After many years lying dormant,
Midway resurrected the series in 2001 and gave it
a complete 3D makeover for the GameCube, Xbox and
PS2. In 2003 another sequel was released, imaginatively
titled SpyHunter 2.
this 3rd SpyHunter goes where no SpyHunter has gone
before, is in it's use of legs. More accurately the
polygonal legs of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.
Johnson plays Alex Decker who can get out of The Interceptor
(the car) and kick bad guy butt with his intense melee
Nowhere to Run, the evil NOSTRA organization returns,
this time with a plan to steal the latest government
technology including the worlds most sophisticated
spy vehicle, the Interceptor, and its up to
Alex to stop them.
promise to have more coverage of this title in the
upcoming months. Stay tuned.
