The Rundown
The Rundown mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When the Rock finally starts using guns, there is one shot where the three holes in his tee shirt are on the right side of his chest, because it is a flipped shot. The holes are on the left side of his chest in every other shot. (01:23:20 - 01:24:40)

Continuity mistake: Beck walks into a bar in the middle of a jungle and soon engages in a conversation with Mariana who is sitting at the end of the bar nursing an orange juice/soda while reading a book. She almost finishes her drink when Beck complains to her that where he comes from "there are bartenders." She then moves over to the bar, taking the almost empty glass with her, and proceeds to serve Beck a beer. When the camera switches angle and zooms in to Beck, slowly cutting Mariana out of view, she's seen taking another sip of orange drink, but now the glass is about half full. (00:21:00)

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)

Continuity mistake: When Beck walks up to Brian and says "Excuse me", Brian looks up at him. When it cuts, he is still talking with his friends. (00:02:40)


Continuity mistake: As the shelf falls over Harvey, he falls on his side. When it cuts to the shelf landing on him, he is suddenly on his knees. (00:25:10)

Continuity mistake: When Beck gets to the bar, Mariana is sitting while holding a newspaper with both hands. When it cuts, she is suddenly grabbing her glass. (00:20:15)


Factual error: The monkeys that are threatening The Rock when he is hanging in the trees are baboons which are native to Africa, not to the Americas. In a magazine interview about the movie The Rock mentions "howler monkeys" (which are from South America)

Continuity mistake: When the miner grabs the gold pieces from the weight, he leaves 3 pieces on it. When it cuts to another shot there are only 2 pieces left. (00:16:50)

Continuity mistake: When Billy hands over the envelope with the new mission to Beck, Beck is holding an ice bag to his head. Beck then lowers the bag and is about to throw it on the counter when it cuts to a close-up of Beck where his shoulder is perfectly still like he isn't placing the ice bag on the counter at all. (00:09:35)


Deliberate mistake: When Beck and Travis dive off the road and roll down hill, their stunt doubles are quite noticeable in many of the shots down the hill. (00:26:35)


Continuity mistake: At the end of the rebel fight where Beck gets beat up by the rebels, he kicks Manito (the main rebel in the fight) on the ground and puts a knife to his throat. As soon as he does this, the knife in his hand is upward, when the shot switches, the knife is being held downward. (00:47:55)

T Poston

Continuity mistake: When the guy cuts the table in two with his whip, the table lands on the floor behind him. When it cuts to a close-up of him, the table is still in the air behind him. (00:25:40)


Continuity mistake: There's a scene after the bar fight where Beck is leading Travis through the jungle, his scar on his right side disappears then reappears near the end of the scene.

Continuity mistake: After Beck drop kicked Harvey, he tries to get up on his feet while he is lying a foot away from a shelf. When it cuts to the shelf falling over him, he is lying right next to it. (00:25:10)


Continuity mistake: When Beck and Travis plunge into the water after their tumble, one shot shows the Jeep rotating numerous times as it falls towards the water, but then in the next shot, it shows the front section of the Jeep splashing into the water. (00:28:35)

Continuity mistake: Earlier in the movie when the "Konlabos" fruits are first introduced, they have a light green skin with little spikes or bumps on them. Later in the movie when Beck gives them to Billy and the bodyguards, the fruit is dark green with smooth skin. (01:05:30 - 01:34:35)

Nicole Sheldon

Hatcher: I feel like a little boy who's lost his first tooth, put it under his pillow, waiting for the tooth-fairy to come. Only two evil burglars have crept in my window, and snatched it, before she could get here... Wait a second, do you understand the concept of the tooth-fairy? Explain it to them... Wait. She takes the god damned thing, and gives you a quarter. They've got my tooth. I want it back.

More quotes from The Rundown

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.
