The Rock and Seann William Scott work up some nice comic chemistry, but it's the dependably warped Walken who steals the most scenes. The frenetically edited fight sequences will satisfy the blood lust of the target audience.

A tolerable alternative when everything else playing at the mall is sold out on Saturday night.
September 27, 2003
The Rundown, like many recent action movies, is aggressively adolescent.
September 26, 2003
The Rock ... has a special quality.
September 26, 2003
Will probably make a star of the Rock.

If Arnold Schwarzenegger had made a movie this tepid in his Commando/Terminator heyday, burned fans would be suggesting that he pursue some tenure as a Fresno alderman.
September 26, 2003
Too often brings guffaws at all the wrong moments, when it's not being simply too stupid for words.
September 26, 2003
While you won't exactly walk out humming the plot, The Rundown should go down quite decently with popcorn.
September 26, 2003
A witty, fast-paced action film.
September 26, 2003
The film vacillates between balmy stabs at humor and milking its sodden social conscience. Meanwhile the script devolves into people yelling 'Shut up!' at each other.
September 26, 2003
A fun ride.
September 26, 2003
Don't expect new horizons in the annals of odd-couple, comedy-action flicks.
September 26, 2003
A brisk, good- hearted but predictable and uninspired -- not to mention bone-crunchingly violent -- action comedy.
September 26, 2003
It's more fun than most of what passed for popcornsellers this past summer.
September 26, 2003
Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson's decision to pursue a movie career is good news for anyone who believes that one Vin Diesel simply isn't enough.
September 26, 2003
The Rundown doesn't break any new ground, but it doesn't leave you wishing you had stayed home, either.
September 26, 2003
The Rundown offers everything a good movie of this sort should: plenty of suspenseful action, a few good laughs, and a share of obligatory 'reluctant buddy' bonding.
September 26, 2003
The Rundown wants to stand out in a movie market gorged with action. But it regurgitates commercial dictates rather than carving a new path. At least it relies on a diverse, charismatic cast, rather than on spectacular carnage.
September 26, 2003
Connoisseurs of Christopher Walken, and there are some hard-core addicts lurking about, will have good reason to take in The Rundown -- they can add a few more riches to their treasure chest of Wonky Walken Moments.
