From the director of battleship. In order to settle a debt a Chef-turned-bounty travels to Brazil to capture his quarry, a wannabe archaeologist on a quest for a gold idol and both become caught up with a ruthless mine operator with plans of his own.

Only Walken shows some real acting unlike The Rok, who always has the same impressions. The action was decent and direction fair. Somewhat coy in the conclusion. The Rundown tried to be an Indiana Jones type flick but drugged up.

Retrieval expert "Beck" (Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson) is hired by a Kingpin to go to the Amazon to bring back his son (Seann William Scott), who is in search of a priceless artifact. The two slowly become partners to fight a heartless gold-mining corporation owner (Christopher Walken).
The action scenes, especially the fighting scenes, are simply amazing. They are well done and are shot very well. The director was on his game when setting up these scenes.
The direction in other scenes are well done as well. They are nicely shot -- especially shots of the Amazonian jungle.
Most of the acting is near perfect, and the chemistry between "Rock" and Scott is really good. The only poor acting is done by the veteran actor, Christopher Walken. In my opinion, Walken's performance is …
