Default 'The Rundown' - High-Def Digest Review

Peter has reviewed 'The Rundown.' He says The Rock makes this movie a lot of fun while poking fun at the genre. This Blu-ray has good video, upgraded audio, and plenty of extras. Worth a look.

I really enjoy Dwayne Johnson, he is a very nice screen presence. I'll get The Rundown at one point.

I saw it at the theater, loved it. I bought it on SD DVD, and I hated it.




It's weird.



PASS.

Enjoyable flick, I thought Rock had a great presense for someone so green(at that point) in his movie career... I also liked the little wink wink passing the torch cameo from Arnie...

I must have missed that. I'll have to look for that when I get my Blu-ray copy. Fun action flick. Walken is hilarious as the bad guy. Day one buy for me.

I wonder if this is different to the Sony release in Australia.

Actually 100% agree with Peter on this one. Could have been much worse but Johnson and Berg turn it into a rather enjoyable better-than-average actioner with humor.

It's at the beginning as Rock is walking into the nightclub. I won't say more, but keep your eyes peeled, it's a quick 5 second cameo.
