    Content : Nothing really new here, just another action movie like any other really....apart from this one stars WWE Wrestling star The Rock. Beck ( The Rock ) is sent to a small town in the jungle to bring back Travis ( Seann William Scott ) who is the son of Becks Boss. The town is run by Hatcher ( Christopher Walken ) who runs the local Gold Mine and pretty much owns the town, and will not let Beck take travis home because he wants Travis to lead him to some lost treasure. So when Hatcher`s men try to take Travis it leads to lots of fighting. Thats the basic story, as i said nothing new, but what makes it worth watching is The Rock. He is perfect for the role and he brings something fresh to the part. Walken and Scott as always do a fine job also.

    As far as Action/Comedy Movies go, while adding nothing new, its good fun to watch and thats what this movie is all about.

    Video : 2.35:1 Anamorphic widescreen Picture quality is very good, not the best i`ve seen but with the amount of extras on the disk it aint bad at all.

    Audio : Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack sounds great. It delivers clean dialogue and kicks in with plenty of bass and the surround speaker get a pretty good workout during the more explosive scenes. No dts though which is a shame.

    Extras : 2 audio commentaries - One with The Rock and Director and the other is from the Producers, `Rumble In The Jungle` featurette (11 mins) `The Amazon, Hawaii Style` featurette (5 mins) `Appetite For Destruction` featurette (8 mins) `The Rundown Uncensored: A Rock-umentary` featurette (6 mins) `Running Down The Town` featurette (4 mins) `Walken`s World` featurette (6 mins) Deleted scenes (14 mins) 6 theatrical trailers (12 mins)

    Overall : Great movie with a great set of extras on a great DVD
