(mx) wrote: Slightly anti climactic ending but all together a very unique and interesting concept all together. Another great Supernatural Horror
(gb) wrote: A very confusing, yet still interesting movie. There are a few problems with the film, but still the cast is very good and as a big Bob Dylan fan, you can't help but love it. Sure, it's hard to find the meaning of the film, but I wasn't necessarily bored at any parts. The pacing was fine, the acting was good, and there are some neat shots. Overall, if you like Bob Dylan a lot, you'll like this a lot whether you find meaning in it or not.

(it) wrote: Woah - what a stinker of a movie - yet curiously watchable, if only to see how not to make a film. Dreadful dialogue and in some cases even worse acting - see Nas and Chilli is two truly awful cameos. Thank heavens i've written this review - it'll remind me never to watch this film again!

(br) wrote: The Rundown is a mildly amusing, pretty average action flick that is straightforward, a little goofy and a little too conservative. Although its tone is solid as a goofy, light adventure, its thematically inconsistent. It can't decide whether it's an Indiana Jones treasure hunt, a story of poverty and rebellion in the jungle or a run of the mill, shoot em up standoff. The one thing this film does very well are the action scenes. In this movie, the fighting is very creative, stylish and fun to watch even if its exaggerated and totally unrealistic. The Rock systematically and brutally takes out bands of people by himself. For a film with so much violence, there was barely any bloodshed or graphic gore. It played it very safe. The film doesn't have much at stake and doesn't develop the characters enough for you to care if they live or die. It's thin and its light, but its down with some style and well-meaning charm.The Rock actually had considerable charm and gave his performance some surprising dimension. His mercenary was tired of fighting, but really fucking good at it and also an aspiring chef, which was a nice break from cliches, even if it was thinly developed. Sean William Scott and the Rock have some amusing exchanges, but Scott's eccentricity is mostly unfunny and very odd. He does succeed in adding some humor though. Christopher Walken is a very creepy and talented actor, which makes me wonder why he involved himself in such an average film and spouted some very weird lines. Maybe they were meant to be funny or chillingly ironic, but they didn't really land for me. Rosario Dawson is solid as the rebel leader, but the character isn't developed much.

But I this film was different for me; maybe it was that my expectations were somewhat lower, but I liked this film quite a bit. Greta Gerwig is great in this and I'd love to see her be in some more major films. I liked the side characters quite a bit as well and the weirdness of the final climax scene. Overall, this was a really good little film that I enjoyed more than I usually enjoy Baumbach's works.
