I'm not a soldier anymore, sir. The day we took hostages, we became mercenaries - and mercenaries get paid. I want my f--king money!
~ Darrow's mutiny against Gen. Hummel.

Captain Darrow is a supporting antagonist in the 1996 action film The Rock.

He is a greedy, traitorous U.S. Marine who serves under the film's main antagonist, General Frank Hummel, and aids him in taking hostages at Alcatraz. Unlike Hummel, however, Darrow's motive is not a misguided, but genuine, sense of patriotism and honor, but pure and simple greed.

He was portrayed by Tony Todd, who also voiced The Fallen in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Zoom in The Flash TV series and Darkseid in the DC Animated Film Universe.
