Beck (Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson) is a Bounty Hunter who wants to quit the business and open a restaurant, but his boss Billy sends him on one last assignment: Go down to The Amazon and bring his wayward son Travis (Seann William Scott) back to Los Angeles. So Beck heads down to the Amazon, where he meets eccentric Irish airplane pilot Declan (Ewen Bremner) and finds a totalitarian regime run by Hatcher (Christopher Walken), who double-crosses Beck shortly after he finds Travis.

Beck and Travis flee to the jungle where, after some obstacles (including a run-in with wild baboons), they join up with a rebellion led by Mariana (Rosario Dawson), an acquaintance of Travis', and go on a search for an ancient artifact Travis has been searching for.


This film contains examples of:

 Beck: Booze...on the grind? What?

  • Unorthodox Reload: And how! Flipping akimbo shotguns upside-down by the trigger guard and racking the action held between arm and ribcage. Holding both shotguns in one hand, pumping both slides at the same time with the other. You will never see a shotgun used like this anywhere else, nor look at them the same ever again after this movie.
  • Utopia Justifies the Means: Hatcher fully believes he's making a better place for the natives.
  • Warrior Chef: Beck.
  • What Could Have Been: That "Tooth Fairy" speech? It was supposed to be a Winnie the Pooh speech. "I WANT THAT BEAR'S ASS OUTTA MY WINDOW!!!"
  • Whip It Good: Hatcher's three toughest goons, including The Dragon.
  • Why Don't You Just Shoot Him?: Lampshaded. When Beck first storms the town and starts taking out Mooks, The Dragon watching via camera feed says, "Why doesn't somebody just shoot him?" Three Elite Mooks later go after him with whips, all of whom are killed by the guns they have holstered on their waists.
