I don’t think anyone would go into this movie expecting very much. And they wouldn’t be disappointed! It was entertaining, but also pretty ridiculous along the way. It seemed to be based almost completely on the old “Rampage” video game where a giant gorilla, a huge lizard, and massive werewolf try to destroy a city while the military tries to take them out. The gorilla is named George and grew up with Davis Okoye (Dwayne Johnson) and they are best friends, communicating with sign language and even joking around. A secret experiment goes wrong and changes George into a creature that is growing in size and strength along with being angry all the time. Others are affected the same way, too, including a wolf and a crocodile! As they all come together, it becomes an all out battle to save the city. Lots of action and corny dialogue for sure! I liked it, even though I didn’t think I would and it was actually kind of fun if you don’t take it all too serious.
