5 Times In Movies That Proved The Rock Is Actually A God Amongst Men

In honour of the man, the myth, the legend, we’ve picked out 5 famous scenes from his muscular body of work that pretty much confirms what we all have secretly suspected for many years now: He’s a superhuman in disguise.


San Andreas

In a movie where a massive earthquake has the potential to crack San Francisco into two pieces, the only thing more astonishing is this scene where Johnson has to find a solution to his approaching tsunami problem. Solution: Imbue his speedboat with anti-gravity and extraordinary speed.


Technically, Hercules is a demi-god in classical mythology, but in this 2014 movie, Johnson plays a mortal leading a band of mercenaries. Yet, he proves in this scene that superpowers are not necessary especially when you have arms built like cannons.

The Rundown

Although it was Johnson’s first big role in 2002’s The Scorpion King that established him as an actor, The Rundown was the movie that established as a bona-fide leading man. In this scene, he demonstrates that in his hands, a shotgun can be a sniper.

Fast & Furious 8

There are many things that Johnson does in the Fast & Furious franchise that make guys question their masculinity, like ripping off a concrete bench to do a bicep curl, but it’s this scene that shows him moving your average 2,700-kg torpedo while dangling off the side of a car that really takes the cake.

The Other Guys

So far, we’ve selected scenes that highlight Johnson’s remarkable physical attributes, but everyone knows that willpower is equally, if not, more crucial. Like in this scene, when he decides to jump off a building to try and catch the bad guys even though he has no chance of surviving. It takes some serious mental strength to stare death right in the face like that.
