Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is a superstar of a certain vintage. He got his start as a wrestling great on the WWE circuit before crossing over into the world of movies on a huge scale. Now he's headlining blockbusters with incredible legs and potentially ending co-stars careers with Instagram beef. Johnson's bigger than big-time now. 

As likable and magnetic as his onscreen persona can be, even he's started to develop a formula over the years. Brolic dudes with a mission and a mostly monochromatic fashion sense seem to be his stock in trade, whether they're backpacking around the world or running through the streets of Florida in a drug-induced haze, and his two latest Rampage and Skyscraper don't really look to be shaking things up too much. We love The Rock with all of our hearts, but here's a list of The Rock's cheesiest action movie moments, in chronological order. Long live our future president.
