From professional wrestler to action hero to leading man, he's become one of the most beloved stars currently working in Hollywood.

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).
