The Rundown (2003)

Plot summary

In order to get out of debt with mobster Billy Walker, restaraunteur-turned-"retrieval expert" Beck (The Rock) has to go down to Brazil and retrieve Billy's ne'er-do-well archaeologist-wannabe son Travis (Seann William Scott), who is searching for an ancient gold idol called the Gato del Diablo. This idol is prized by not only the local population as the path to their salvation, but by Cornelius Hatcher (Christopher Walken), slavedriving operator of the Helldorado mining town who oppresses said population in the name of profits, and Hatcher just won't let Beck leave with Travis.

Trivia

California Govenor and former action star Arnold Schwarzenegger makes a special guest appearance in this movie. When Beck first arrives at the night club, Arnold walks right by him and tells him to "have fun." Arnold had just become Govenor and knew he would not be acting for awhile so this was his way of passing the torch to someone he felt would take his place as the future of action movies.
