      THE RUNDOWN       I have always been a fan of the Rock or should I say Dwayne Johnson especially in villain roles [film and wrestling], but what ever I have always been a fan. This movie in particular was really the first time Dwayne shined, I know the "Scorpion King" and all that was out first but that really was in his wrestling/action realm. This was the first time he was put a little out of his norm [although there is a lot of action and …

The Rock plays a bounty hunter out to get his bosses kid out of The Amazon and out of the hands of the wicked Hatcher. Full of action, humor and fun. Not the greatest movie of it's kind, for that you'll want to see Midnight Run.

It certainly lacks depth and basically was written as a vehicle for The Rock to show if his wrestling moves and stunt man abilities. There are other action thrillers that succede on both levels(story and action). …

Pros: Good action and some funny stuff.     Cons: Story is rather basic,     The Bottom Line: A very nice surprise and a pleasant time at the movies.     In life, it is often good to have a career that combines your talents and interests as there can be nothing more frustrating than not being able to utilize your talents to their full extent. For Beck (The Rock), his talent for finding people who do not want to be found has made him a very …
