Dwayne Johnson plays a tough dad forced to drive for a ruthless drug cartel to save his son in the gritty action-thriller Snitch, on DVD and Blu-ray June 11, but in this exclusive clip for ETonline, The Rock shows his softer side by explaining that the tears came naturally for an especially emotional scene -- and it was almost ruined by a continuity error!

Based on a true story, Snitch finds Johnson as a concerned father faced with a dramatic choice after his teenage son is wrongly accused of a drug distribution crime. With his boy facing a minimum prison sentence of 10 years, the desperate and determined Johnson makes a deal with the U.S. attorney to work as an undercover informant and infiltrate a dangerous drug cartel (whose key player is played by Benjamin Bratt). Willing to risk everything to free his son, can Johnson make it out alive?
