And by all accounts he did. Welcome to the Jungle would have been a perfect vehicle for Schwarzenegger (if he was a little younger maybe), as it has all the ingredients of an `old school' Arnie action film. Yes, there are plenty of beatings and shoot-outs, but they're all pretty tongue-in-cheek and precede a witty quip or a dodgy pun.
The Rock (or Dwayne Johnson if we're being technical) plays a bounty hunter, employed to bring Stiffler back from the jungle. Sean William Scott seems to be stuck in his `Stiffler' mode from American Pie, but it's no bad thing. He provides most of the bigger laughs next to his long-suffering captor, Dwayne Johnson.
Plus the bad guys are exceptionally wicked and deserve everything they get. And there's a seemingly infinite supply of them, just waiting to be beaten or shot to death by Johnson.
Expect cheesy action and explosions and our heroes never to sustain so much as a bruise, despite being hurled through the air, landing down cliffs and in trees.
And pay attention for Arnie's `handover' cameo in the opening few seconds.
