3.0 4.0 from 1 reviews

Amusing buddy/action comedy works because of the Rock's self-deprecating charm (and physical abilities) and Scott's insolent exuberance. Bounty hunter Beck (Johnson) takes one last job--that of retrieving the wastrel son of his boss. Travis (Scott) is an archeology student who's in the Amazon seeking a priceless golden artifact, which is also sought by his ex-girlfriend Marianna (Dawson), who wants to use the treasure to free her people from the inhuman working conditions imposed by manic mine owner Hatcher (Walken, who's obviously having a good time playing another crazy bad guy). The action (and there's lots of it) is briskly paced, and Hawaii's rain forests and the San Gabriel Mountains provide appropriate substitutes for the Amazon. Watch for the scene with the Rock and some amorous monkeys.
