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 ...

Trivia

Ralph is a wolf with bat ears, porcupine quills and flying squirrel membranes, while Lizzie is a crocodile with boar tusks, fish gills and gecko toes, as well as pangolin-like armor and a spiked tail club. George is the odd one out, as he's basically just an albino King Kong. Technically speaking though, due to the genetic editing, this trope applies to all three, since they're also imbued with the indeterminate growth of a great white shark, the growth rate of a blue whale, the strength of a rhinoceros beetle, the speed of a cheetah, the tissue regeneration of an African spiny mouse See more »

Goofs

George is said to be imbued with the strength of a rhinoceros beetle, except that's only so strong because it's just an insect. Although doubling the size of a creature quadruples its strength, there's also an eight-fold increase in its weight. This consequence of the square-cube law means that a giant gorilla a Thousand times larger than the beetle would be a Million times stronger than the beetle - but also a Billion times heavier than the beetle, so would just go squish under its own weight.

Mission Controller: Athena-1. Athena-1, come in. Athena-1, this is Control. We have negative copy on that last transmission. We are showing LOS in the command module. Please verify. Over.
Dr. Kerry Atkins: Mission Control, this is Atkins. Something went wrong with the test. The crew is dead. Athena hull integrity is critical. I'm headed to the escape capsule.
Mission Controller: Negative, negative. Reroute to the lab and secure the canisters before departure.
Dr. Kerry Atkins: But the test subject is loose.
Mission Controller: Doctor, the test subject is a rat.
Dr. Kerry Atkins: Not anymore.

Excellent, but do NOT watch the trailer!
20 April 2018 | by Stig-12345See all my reviews

A lot better than expected. And on IMAX 3D this was a winner.

Recommended!

I hate trailers, and tried to watch the trailer after I watched the movie.. well, it shows EVERYTHING! If you want to see the movie without knowing what's going to happen, do NOT see the trailer.

I'm not sure why the trailers are so long and so revealing. They ruin everything for me. And in cinemas I have to watch a whole bunch of them!
