Movie Review: Rampage

Movie Review: Rampage

Rampage teaser film poster.jpgRampage is a movie loosely based on a video game of the same name. Energyne, a company, is experimenting in genetic mutation. When their space ship holding their research canisters containing a pathogen crash into various parts of the city, one make George (an albino gorilla) grow in size and aggression. Two more canisters change a wolf and a crocodile in the same way.

Dwayne Johnson plays a Primatologist who uses sign language to communicate with George. The two have a unique relationship. When George goes on a rampage, Dwayne’s character must team up with  Dr. Kate Caldwell, a genetic engineer, (played by Naomie Harris). She created the formula that has changed the animals and wants to at least help George by taking away the anger and aggression side of the change. Unfortunately, nothing can be done about the animals’ huge sizes.

This was an action-packed movie that I liked more than I thought I would. The CGI was pretty good and the script interesting. I also loved the diversity of the cast including the two leads.

 

 

My rating 4.3 stars out of 5

Andrea R. Cooper writes fantasy, paranormal,  and historical romance.

Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.
