Storyline

Athena-1, a space station owned by gene manipulation company Energyne, is destroyed after a laboratory rat mutates and wreaks havoc. Dr. Kerry Atkins, the lone surviving crew member, is ordered by CEO Claire Wyden to retrieve research canisters containing a pathogen. Atkins is able to flee in the escape pod when the station implodes, but due to damage from the rat it disintegrates upon re-entry, killing her. The falling pieces leave a trail of debris across the United States, including the Everglades in Florida, where a canister is consumed by an American crocodile, and a forest in Wyoming, where a gray wolf is exposed to the pathogen. Primatologist Davis Okoye, a former US Army Special Forces soldier and member of an anti-poaching unit, works at the San Diego Wildlife Sanctuary. He has befriended a rare albino western lowland gorilla named George, having saved him from poachers, and communicates with George using sign language and hand gestures. At night, one of the canisters ...

Now this is some good old fashioned dumb fun!
11 April 2018 | by Darth_OsmosisSee all my reviews

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!
