Rampage review - dumb action makes up for bland characters and story
Share This Article:
Adapted from the relatively small video game series, Rampage sees Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson face off against giant mutated animals causing chaos across America. Whilst the film does live up to its name in terms of action, the mixed pacing along with some terrible characters make it hard to love. After an explosion on a space station causes three research pods to crash land on Earth, Davis Okoye (Dwayne Johnson) is left wondering what to do with his friend George, an albino ape, after he is exposed to the toxins from within one of them. Rapidly growing in size and become noticeably more aggressive, George is one of three affected animals who begin to storm through America towards Chicago for reasons unknown. With the help of genetic researcher Dr Kate Caldwell (Naomie Harris), Davis follows the creatures across the country in an attempt to put a stop to their carnage and save his friend.
