Rampage is the film adaptation of the famous video game. The story is about Primatologist David Okoye (played by Dwayne Johnson) who works at the San Diego Animal Rescue where he take care of animals that lost their families to poachers like David’s best friend George, a silverback gorilla that David saved from poachers at a very young age. One night a mysterious objects fall down from space in different locations; one landing in the gorilla enclosure. George investigates the object and a strange gas comes out of the object infecting the gorilla, George. The next morning, George has grown at a enormous rate and no one knows why. That’s when Dr. Kate Caldwell (played by Naomie Harris) who works for the company that created the mysterious object that infects George visits David. George is then taken away by Harvey Russell (played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan) who works for the OGA, to be studied. While on the plane, George escapes and runs away to Chicago along with a wolf and a crocodile. So it’s up to David and Kate to stop the rampaging animals and save Chicago.

Rampage has a dumb plot, but does have some decent action and characters. The relationship between David and George is strong and has some funny moments. The action is cool and entertaining seeing the huge monsters fight each other. Dwayne Johnson and Jeffrey Dean Morgan helps make the film fun with their performances and the little quirks they add to their characters. The weakness of the story is that the villains are lame and that their plan doesn’t make a whole lot of sense.  Rampage gets a 6.5/10 stars.
