Rampage

 

Rampage is a 2018 American science fiction monster film directed by Brad Peyton, loosely based on the video game series of the same name by Midway Games.

The film stars Dwayne Johnson, Naomie Harris, Malin Ă…kerman, Jake Lacy, Joe Manganiello, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. It follows a primatologist named Davis Okoye (Johnson) and George, an albino gorilla who turns into a raging creature of enormous size following a rogue experiment.


This film embraces its B-movie origins. It’s a very derivative plot, simple characters but a rather weak villian. However knowing all that, it pulls it off with competence. Technically there is little to fault. The CGI effects are well done, the monsters have the feeling of weight and inertia lots of other movies lack.

There is a surprising  about of humour, however most of it comes from the gorilla.
