The Rundown is a comedy action film with an award-winning cast including Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Christopher Walken and others. The Rundown begins with Beck (The Rock), who acts as a bounty hunter. He wants to get out of the business and open up his own restaurant, but his handler gives him one last job. His son, Travis, has run away to South America, and he wants Beck to go and retrieve him. Beck agrees, and that's when hijinks ensue. Beck arrives in El Dorado and finds Travis without much difficulty in a local bar. Travis tries to explain that he's on the verge of finding a particularly important item, the O Gato Del Diablo, but Beck is indifferent, and just wants the job done. As they're leaving, the unwilling duo runs into Hatcher (Walken), the man who runs the town. He wants the MacGuffin that Travis is about to find and tries to take Travis from Beck. Beck defeats Hatcher's goons and starts driving Travis to the air field. Travis causes an accident, though, and he and Beck are stranded in the jungle. The two men are found by a resistance camp trying to break Hatcher's hold on the town. Beck is persuaded to let Travis find the Gato and to help the resistance, and in exchange Travis will go back home without a fight. They go and find the Gato but are double-crossed by the resistance leader who uses a fruit that paralyzes Travis and Beck. At the airfield, after the fruit wears off, they find out that she was captured, and Hatcher has the Gato. Beck and Travis assault Hatcher and his men in the town, leading to Hatcher's death and to the return of the Gato to the people. Then Travis and Beck return home to the States, where they deal with Travis's father.
