Welcome to the Jungle (The Rundown) (2003) movie review

Cooking up a Chase

Continuing his run as an action-adventure hero, The Rock stars in a jungle-based action-adventure complete with beautiful feisty girl and morally-questionable heir-to-a-badguy.

As a twist, The Rock plays a bodyguard / Mr Fixit who wants to run a high-end restaurant.

Expect the usual running gags, good guys, bad guys, battles and comeupance.
