Do you like big, fun and really dumb action movies? I know I do; and if you do too, then Rampage, starring Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, is right up our street.
The Rock plays Davis Okoye, a primatologist and former soldier who’s more comfortable around animals than humans, so much so that his best friend is George, an albino gorilla.
So what do you get with Rampage? Well, the usual flexing of giant arms from The Rock and a trio of massive animals who are impervious to all human weapons.
Rampage mostly focuses on The Rock and his mate George, but a side story of a team of boilerplate mercenaries getting their arses handed to them by a giant wolf is a nice addition to the big, dumb action movie.
It’s not until late in the movie that the giant crocodile reveals itself, taking our tally of gigantic, mutant animals to three.
To be honest, this movie is dumb as hell, but I’m fine with that. It is, after all, an adaptation of a 1986 arcade video game.
I suggest you sit down with a box of popcorn and be entertained for 2 hours. You’re welcome.
