Rampage 2018 Review IMDB. Let’s begin. Rampage starts with an intriguing opening sequence but cheesy. The fact that the film has to have a love for George shows where we are today in cinema and the economy. Everyone knows this film is based off of the video game of the same name. In the video game, you play 1 of the 3 monsters and the objective is too destroy as much of the city as possible. But in the film you are meant to love George(the gorilla). One huge aspect about the film that I have a problem with is, how come Ralph(the wolf) and Lizzie(the crocodile) both get physically altered, and their appearance change, but George stayed the same. This to me is just a cop out to still love George. Another cop out is the ending. I honestly would’ve preferred what they were going to do and how the film was going, but then, boom, cop out. Watch rampage online free now.
With that being said, the ending could also be a good thing because through-out the film, we build and feel this emotional connection with George and feel for him. So really it goes on preference. Other than the nit picks I have, the CGI was very well done, the action was intense, and most of the characters are likable. There is one scene with Ralph that was fantastic in my mind. Well done, suspense and very chilling way to introduce Ralph. Lizzie didn’t get a huge introduction till third act, but Lizzie was a badass. The story itself is generic but enjoyable. All in all, the film is an enjoyable action fun fest with cheesy moments and acting. Seeing it on the big screen is a plus as well. Not great but a fun film to check out.
‘Rampage’ is a brainless summer blockbuster. Its big, dumb, but also kinda fun. While I clearly didn’t have a ball, I didn’t really mind the film either. Its, at best, a very watchable film, that works in parts. ‘Rampage’ Synopsis: When three different animals become infected with a dangerous pathogen, a primatologist and a geneticist team up to stop them from destroying Chicago. ‘Rampage’, which is loosely based on the video game series of the same name by Midway Games, has some fun to offer. Watching the animals become abnormally giant and destructive, along-with superb visual-effects & the fast-pace, never turns boring. Dwayne Johnson adds muscle to the goings-on, giving the film the heft is strongly needs.
But, The Screenplay settles for laziness. Despite some crazy loud action, the Writing is overall, soulless. You don’t really feel for any of its characters, be it the humans or the animals. You watch them in chaos, but never end up rooting for any. Also, the supporting characters (particularly Naomie Harris & Jeffrey Dean Morgan), aren’t given with much to do, and hence, don’t add much to the narrative. A Stronger & more Consistent Screenplay was needed, for sure. Brad Peyton’s Direction is passable. Cinematography, Editing & Background Score, are decent. On the whole, ‘Rampage’ is fun in parts. And Dwayne Johnson delivers once again. Go in with limited expectations & chances of being letdown will be minimal.
