I think you can smell what the Rock is cooking: a dish that'll fatten your head but pleasantly plump your gut. [Blu-ray]

If, like me, you dismissed The Rundown as just another stupid action vehicle for Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson - get in the apology line behind me

It's Midnight Run with added insects but with only a twentieth of the humour and a hundredth of the charm.

It's slick, it's loud, and it's catalyzing--a gadfly of a film from a subversive filmmaker approaching the mainstream but not quite there yet.

O diretor Peter Berg e sua equipe foram assaltados quando estiveram no Brasil à procura de locações. Pois bem: eles se vingaram - e este longa é a prova disto.

It's a fun ride and a throwback to the kind of action movies that were popular in the 1980s, the days before ... special effects dominated every frame.

[T]he plot and the characters and the action set pieces all have to be built around an action star. The Rundown... indicates that the Rock is ready to be that star.

Worth the chase, the Rundown is simple entertainment at it's best.

One of those failed adventure yarns in which the character interaction is forced to make up for other shortcomings.

The Rock is the action star of the new millennium, and his charismatic presence in The Rundown solidifies that.

Not a single character behaves with any logic at all, but at least they're colourful and energetic enough to keep our interest.

It shows potential for a new franchise and a new star, or stars, in the genre.

If you can smell what The Rock is cooking, then get a sensational whiff of his homemade cinematic snack known as the giddy and glossy executed The Rundown
