    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.

    The Rundown has great scenery and brilliant action. The movie was filmed in Hawaii, Brazil and California. The cast is as good as you'll see for an action comedy and the movie is epic in every way. The Rock rocks in the movie and there isn't a flat moment in the movie. If you're looking for a clever action comedy, the rundown is for you. 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

    The Rundown is a suitable action comedy for the family. You can watch the movie with friends or family
    and you'll be raving about the movie.
    The Rundown is one of the best action movies of the last decade. Expand

    The Rundown is one of the greatest action packed movies of all time, and it is probably my favorite movie from The Rock. Dwayne Johnson and Sean William Scott are great together in this movie. This movie is full of action, humor and of course thunder and lightning, The Rundown is truly a classic and is one of my favorite movies of all time. Expand

    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

    The Rundown is not especially clever or engaging when it comes to storyline. In fact, it's fairly simple. But when you put The Rock and Christopher Walken and Seann William Scott in an action movie together, you certainly can't go wrong. Here is proof. Expand
