Few celebrities have had a career trajectory quite as interesting as Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. From professional wrestler to action hero to leading man, he's become one of the most beloved stars currently working in Hollywood. That doesn't mean, of course, that critics have always enjoyed smelling what "The Rock" is cooking. His films are more crowd-pleasers than awards magnets, which is why it wasn't too hard to cobble together a list of the worst movies "The Rock" has ever made.

We consulted Rotten Tomatoes' ranked list of every Dwayne Johnson film, and focused on the movies with "rotten" ratings (under 60 percent). Note that the ranking is based on an algorithm that takes into account the number of reviews and the critics surveyed, so you might see some higher-scoring movies ranked below lower-scoring ones. Either way, these are the movies "The Rock" made that earned the worst reviews, from the disappointing to the truly abysmal.
