The Rundown

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.

Continuity mistake: When The Rock and Seann William Scott are tumbling down the big hill, Seann William Scott is handcuffed as they start but throughout the scene is uncuffed and then cuffed as he tumbles. (00:27:30 - 00:28:25)

Hatcher: I suppose now we have a conversation where you enlighten me. How many more of you are out there? Enlighten me. Where are the rest of your compadres? Enlighten me.
