Primatologist Davis (Dwayne Johnson) shares an unshakable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent silverback gorilla who has been in his care since he was young. When a greed-fueled corporation's genetic experiment goes awry, George and other animals across the country are mutated into aggressive supercreatures who destroy everything in their path. In this adrenaline-filled ride, Davis tries to find an antidote, not only to halt a global catastrophe but also to save the fearsome creature who was once his friend.Written by
The mutated rat, seen towards the beginning of the film, is likely meant to be Larry from the Atari Lynx version of the 'Rampage (1986)' video-game. The character was a special inclusion who only appeared in this version of the game. See more »
When Dr. Atkins is escaping from the space station at the beginning of the film, she is seated in the escape pod/module facing toward the station. The thrust of the pod leaving the station should therefore have jolted her forward in her seat, and not backward as depicted. See more »
Inspired by the classic Arcade and later various other systems game of the same name, the movie boasts a predictably simple premise and let's just say the characters are not too complex.. yeah. But this is OK! Nobody will see this movie for compelling characters and dramatic scenes. The cast is mostly just passable, with the exception of Johnson(who always rocks!) and Jeffrey Dean Morgan who turns in one hell of an entertaining government agent, and of course George the gorilla is also one cool dude.
It is like a live action Saturday morning cartoon! It's fun, high octane action with some pretty sweet scenes and solid effects. If you want to see a popcorn flick then look no further, if you remember the games nostalgia might be included!
