great movie lol
Check your Oscar movie mentality at the door...And enjoy this movie what it is...A fast paced humor filled action movie...Grab some popcorn and enjoy...a soft 7/10...
Its a stretch to give this movie an 8, even in my self-imposed 'don't-rate-any-junky-less-than-7-movies', but it did some things that got my attention that a 7 movie wouldn't. The opening sequence is done really well. I just love watching one guy kicking a bunch of other guys' asses, and he was so nice and polite about it, trying to avoid hurting 'the team'. The supporting actors were all good or better. The Rock has talent and screen presence. Good effects. So its an 8. Its barely an 8 because the plot is mostly formula, there's no wild baboons in South America and Native South Americans don't have a unique indigenous highly developed martial arts style. So let's say its an 8-rated action movie because its fun to watch. You know the hero is indestructible and just like in 'WWF' will get up and dust himself off after being half-beaten to death or falling off a cliff.

The DVD has some good stuff on it. The crew had fun making the movie and there was a lot of joking around in the featurettes rather than a bunch of self-congratulations. The Rock has a double that could be his twin. Audio and video are adequate without being exceptional. The DVD is a 7.5/10.
I've been meaning to review this for a while, but I kept forgetting so... yeah. Anyhoo, The Rundown is just a roller coaster ride of fun and excitement, nothing more. The Rock truley redeems himself in this movie as for he was horible in The Scorpion King and Sean Willaim Scott does his funniest performance since the first American Pie, but the best actor in this film is none other than, Chris Walken. He played the role of the villian very well.It's plot though is a little meh, but still, that doesn't stop this movie from being as fun as hell. Overall, if you can avoid lack of plot, The Rundown will be one helluva ride. This movie gets a 8/10.
:fresh: The Rundown was a brutal movie. But brutal can be good. I loved the Rock in this film. The plot wasn't the best but also the movie has a completley different beggining and end. In the begginging its a whole different style. Its a club brawl. At the end its a jungle setting. I loved this movie and should be enjoyed by all.

This is one of the Rock's best film yet. With Seann William Scott doing his comedy performance. With Christopher Walken as the Villian, and a short cameo by the Governator.

Don't miss The Rock's next movie, Doom (2005). Also staring Karl Urban. Based on the hit video game. Coming to theater's in August 5th 2005.

And Spy Hunter (2005) Also staring The Rock. Directed by John Woo. Based on the hit Video Game. Coming to theater's in September 2005.

I Give The Rundown 10/10:fresh:

(PETER BERG, 2003)
Just saw The Rundown with The Rock. I must admit that he and Sean William Scott make a good team. I liked the movie, thought it had a lot of good action to it. Not too long. So why the 5? Well, I just wasn't that impressed. Didn't hate it, just didn't really have any feeling toward it. Doesn't mean it was bad though. Funny moments. Maybe its the head cold I have. Whatever....
The Rundown (2003) - "Oh shit, what was that? Monkeys!" - Seann William Scott.

The baton has been passed. In the opening scene of the film, the Rock, a "retrieval" expert, passes Arnold Schwarzenegger coming down the hall and out of the nightclub that contains Rock's target: a quarterback with a big gambling problem. As the Arnold passes the Rock, the former King of kick-ass movies nods and says, "Have fun." And so he does. And so did I.

I'm not going to kid you. I didn't spend much time trying to benchmark this film to some of the really fine stuff I've seen lately. I was done with my review the second the fight started in the nightclub. I put down my pen, grabbed my pillow, and started hooting and hollering. And that's pretty much the way it was until the movie came to an end. What a ride!
