    Once in the jungle they have all sorts of harrowing adventures, and I enjoyed it that real things were happening, that we were not simply looking at shoot-outs and chases, but at intriguing and daring enterprise.
  2. An action-adventure flick that could turn into this generation's "Raiders of the Lost Ark."
  3. The screenplay is laced with wit and sharp dialogue, and the supporting cast more than makes up for Johnson's inexperience and occasional stiffness.

    Doesn't break any new ground, but it doesn't leave you wishing you had stayed home, either. Considering the state of action movies today, that's something.

    Is he (Rock) the next big thing? After seeing The Rundown, one of the most joyfully silly genre films in recent history, he has my vote.
  6. The Rock deserves better than The Rundown, a brisk, good- hearted but predictable and uninspired - not to mention bone-crunchingly violent - action comedy.
  7. 30
    To call this action gambit formulaic is to sell it short: The Rundown runs down more formulas than a month's worth of complimentary premium cable service.

    Suprisingly good. Sean W.S. and The Rock actually work well together, and Walken's lines were funny. This is a treat to the MILLIONS [and millions]...etc. Expand

    This was fun, really entertaining and probably deserves a sequel.

    Engaging chemistry between The Rock and Sean William Scott.

    Kudos also to
    Ernie Reyes, Jr. who provided one of the most memorable action scenes - his best performance since Ninja Turtles 2 and Ninja Surfers. Expand

    A phenomenal action movie with great jokes, a popular cast and cool visuals, the movie is set in Brazil.

    The Rundown has plenty of original comedy and action. The movie has talented actors and they all add
    their personal touches to their
    characters. The Rundown is an underrated action gem. Expand

    The Rundown has fantastic comedy, thrills and adrenaline fuelled action scenes.

    An awesome action movie with touches of genuinely funny humor. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is awesome in this movie, Christopher Walken makes an awesome villain, and Seann William Scott does a decent job as the comic relief character but I couldn't help but feel like the writers didn't add enough humor for him. The action packs one heck of a punch. I frequently found myself saying something out loud when someone got punched because of how brutal it looked. All in all it's a fantastic action movie that I highly recommend watching. Expand

    Good action film, but also flagrantly disposable.
