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 ...

Goofs

A Los Angeles Television station has call letters beginning with a W. Only Television and radio stations east of the Mississippi River start with a W. West of the river, stations start with a K. However, prior to 1923 there were numerous W stations west of the Mississippi River and these were allowed to keep their W call sign. An example is WOAI in San Antonio, Texas (which is still operating both TV and Radio) So, it would be possible for a station in California to have a W call sign. See more »

Appreciate this film for what it is: fun, mindless, action-filled entertainment.
15 April 2018 | by Top_Dawg_CriticSee all my reviews

Appreciate this film for what it is: fun, mindless, action-filled entertainment. No need to dissect, analyse or compare this. My only few complaints are that the writing was too loose and should have been edited down by 15-20 mins to keep the pace more elevated throughout. Also, not a fan of the Energyne CEO sister and brother characters - they were way too cheesy and annoying and cheapened the film. All other actors were cast and performed great, and Dwayne entertained as always. The SFX/VFX were also great. A fun and well deserved 8/10 from me
