As my title says, I don't expect much. I wasn't disappointed. Predictable, a not very good supporting cast and bad dialogue. A bit like some of the older Schwarzenegger movies, only with 2018 special effects. Don't be put off with reviews that contain spoilers. They won't spoil much as it's all predictable what will happen next. Exciting? Not in my opinion. Worth the price of admission? Definitely not.

When I think Dwayne Johnson + movie, I don't expect much.Reviewed byotter-stlVote: 2/10
Coming from someone who wants to show The Rock support in all that he does,this movie is just pure boring.Even going in with the idea that it really won't be good,and accepting it as pure popcorn fun and entertainment,it's an absolute snoozefest.There's nothing memorable,no holy sh*t that was cool moment,zilch.Negan is in full Negan character his whole time here as well.The movie is boring to the point where I had no issue with walking out if the others with me agreed to as well (only after it ended did I know that walking out was on the table for all of us).Side note,how is it that they give DJ the same 1 shirt to wear in every movie? The 1 white tshirt that's bloody,turned grey and has random holes has made it through The Rundown,Walking Tall,San Andreas,Jumanji,now this,and with an upcoming appearance in Skyscraper
Rampage (4.5 out of 5 stars).
Video game adaptations into films have been ongoing with a curse from missing a specific target audience. Resident Evil's are not great films but have been entertaining with its action. The new Tomb Raider reboot was surprisingly good but could have been more. And there are other lacklusters like Prince of Persia, Doom, Silent Hill, ect. A movie about three giant monsters of a crocodile, gorilla, and a grey wolf causing a mass destruction in a city. Yes, that is what the arcade games are about and that is exactly what you can expect in this Rampage film. At least, it is one hell of a wild ride of fun. So don't expect any award winning script with great dialogue, a long developing story, or logic with characters choices in the movie. If you leave all the critical thinking out before watching the film, you will find the film to be what it is. And it does its job, which is entertaining and being a lot of fun.
The plot follows after a science experiment gone wrong in space leaving three canisters to fall on Earth. A primatologist Davis (Dwayne Johnson) notices one of his gorilla friend George is infected with and a lot bigger. After his agitation and escape from the Zoo. The government agent Harvey (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) captures George and tries to take him into a more secured location. Meanwhile, a corporation that was in charge of the space station experiment of genetic editing led by Claire (Malin Akerman) and her brother Brett (Jake Lacy) tries to send a signal to bring in the giant gorilla and the other two infected beasts of a giant grey wolf and a mutated crocodile.
The film is a lot of fun. It has a lot of action and big set pieces. It is loud, big, and dumb. But it is definitely a film of escapism of watching three giant beasts destroying a city. While the military are giving everything they got to stop them. And Davis and Dr. Kate (Naomie Harris) are trying to find a solution to get George back and to have the giant gorilla stop the other two beasts. The visual effects are awesome. There may be some cheesy cgi with the military jets or watching Dwayne Johnson running through falling buildings and avoiding a lot of heavy debris while the monsters are battling it out.
Dwayne Johnson is becoming one of the actors you enjoy watching on screen. If you either like his big tough attitude responses or enjoy him facing the impossible with the action sequences. Naomie Harris was okay playing a sidekick character with Davis. Malin Akerman and Jake Lacy play cheesy villains of a cliché corporation on wanting to create deadly experiments for there own personal gain. Jeffrey Dean Morgan was a lot of fun playing a cowboy attitude government agent. (Almost feels like he was playing the same character as Negan from The Walking Dead series).
Director Brad Peyton created a wild ride with San Andreas film. He does the same with Rampage. It is big and loud and action packed. From an exciting sequence with mercenaries fighting with a giant wolf in the forest to George's escape on the plane. And the final half hour climax of three monsters causing mass destruction. Also, there is some fun humor. And George and Davis friendship does try to build an emotional connection with the gorilla that tries to have you rooting for the beast.
Overall, Rampage is a really good film. It is action packed throughout. The visual effects are awesome. The characters are fun and cheesy. The plot and concept is everything you can expect for a blockbuster fun of monsters causing destructions.
I recommend seeing this film on the big screen in theatres. If you are looking for a blockbuster escapism of big action and mass destruction. And seeing Dwayne Johnson battle through this destruction. This would be the film to check out. It is a lot of fun.
