    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.

    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. Full Review »

    A cheesy action film starring the Rock? How good can it be? You'd be surprised. It's funny and surprisingly clever. The actions scenes are good and very well filmed (think the exact opposite of the Bourne Supremecy). It's cliched and unamazing, but it's a well done, high quality action film. If you're looking for a really good, deep thinker of a movie, then you know better to not look here for it. If you're looking for a throwaway action film, this is it, and you will be surprised at how good this one turns out to be. Full Review »

    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. Full Review »
