I already knew I'd not like The Rundown, because it's again just not my type of genre. I don't like this - huh, I'm more brutal than you, let's have a try, beat me, shoot me, burn me, squeeze me. Boring. I saw this actor called The Rock has quite some fans that think he's the new Arnie. That's what I read AFTER watching the movie. WHILE I was watching the movie I just thought - doh, this guy is trying hard to come along like Arnold Schwarzenegger. I mean, if there was anything new about that kind of character, I'd say fine, so he's a new brutalo type. But to me he's just a bad copy of bad Arnie. So whatever. Just as pointless as the whole movie. But Seann William Scott rocks.
My rating: 2/10
One of my friends said he disliked it so much that he'd want to have a refund.
TRAILERS from IMDb
SYNOPSIS from Rotten Tomatoes
In the always rough, have-to-be tough urban jungle of Los Angeles, there are men like Beck (THE ROCK)…well, not exactly like Beck—a man who uses whatever means are necessary to retrieve whatever he is paid to bring back. A marker, a late payment or a Super Bowl ring from a quarterback with gambling debts—Beck doesn’t differentiate and simply relies on his wits, his “let’s get this over with” attitude and his devastating physical prowess to get the job done. For him, it’s a simple, multiple-choice world: (A) Beck’s way, (B) Beck’s way with force, or (C)…there is no “C.”
Beck doesn’t go looking for trouble, and he doesn’t like making trouble for anyone, either. Unfortunately, trouble is what he’s hired to clean up, and there’s one final mess he’s got to get out of before he can leave it all behind. And this one just keeps getting more and more tangled, like the Amazon jungle he’s been sent to in The Rundown.
