“The Rock” Dwayne Johnson stars in this action adventure as Beck, a bounty hunter who has been sent to the Amazon to retrieve the son of a wealthy underworld kingpin, who has been hunting for treasure there. But when Beck meets his quarry, Travis [Seann William Scott], he realises he's not the wayward good-for-nothing he'd been warned about, and he ends up joining forces with him to hunt for a priceless idol. But the powerful owner of the mine in the area where they have been searching, Hatcher [Christopher Walken], insists that anything found on his land belongs to him, and Beck and Travis end up having to fight their way out of the jungle. The film boasts an uncredited cameo appearance by Arnold Schwarzenegger.

John is Beck, a "retrieval specialist", sent by his boss to the Brazilian Amazon jungle to recover his errant son, Travis (Seann William Scott). Trouble is, Travis doesn't want to leave - he's too busy tracking down an artifact of native treasure, a solid gold statue hidden in the jungle. This trinket thrusts Beck and Travis between battling armed nationalists, led by bar-owner Mariana (Rosario Dawson), and the stereotypic Evil White Man, Hatcher (Christopher Walken), whose empire is an enormous open-pit gold mining operation worked by downtrodden locals kept in line by whip-wielding thugs.
To my mind, THE RUNDOWN is saved by the likeable Beck and a strong performance by Walken. Otherwise, it's just a series of confrontations, mostly kung-fu action sequences, with a gun battle and a vehicle chase thrown in for variety. Mariana simply serves as eye-candy.
Is The Rock destined to be the next generation Tough Guy action hero? Perhaps. In a blink-of-an-eye cameo at the beginning of the film, Arnold Schwarzenegger passes Beck on the way out of a nightclub and says" Have fun!' Arnie is off to be Governor of California, leaving the heavy lifting to his successor.
This isn't a bad movie, and is an entertaining introduction to The Rock as a leading man of the genre. I just hope the plots of his future releases are a little more focused and, um (dare I say), intelligent.Read more ›
Low down it has some wrestling moves in it like he rock bottom in a table near start
High flying kicks too
Watch if you like the rock
Welcome To The Jungle is a fun "brain-off" movie that delivers action, adventure, one-liners and some impressive stunts. Adding the anti-gun storyline was a smart move as it benefitted the fight scenes as well as hyped up the inevitable showdown at the end. At 1hr 40mins this movie could have done with an extra 15mins or so to give some of the characters a fraction more depth. Christopher Walken takes on the "bad guy" role, although sadly isn't given much time to make the audience really dislike him. His exit from the movie is a classic overacted-badguy-death-sequence and Walken performed it perfectly. Seann William Scott played well against the Rock although I was left wondering whether it would have worked better with a "tougher" comedy actor instead (still can't watch him seriously after all the Pie/Dude movies). With a good supporting cast (although exactly WHICH accent was the pilot trying to do?) the film deserves all the credit it has received.Read more ›
