If you enjoyed Kong: king of Apes of 2016 and Skull Island 0f 2017 then you would most likely enjoy this new movie titled Rampage. It features Dwayne Johnson as the lead actor and it has a funny yet interesting storyline. Davis Okoye as he was called in the movie was a man who was more affiliated to animals than he was to man, although women found him so attractive, he was in no way interested as he spent more time with animals.
The movie was directed by Brad Peyton who had a very good movie, the movie was written by Ryan Engle and 3 others, and they did have an imaginative mind to come up with this concept. It was obvious that the movie was staged, but they made it look so real. The highlights of this movie was towards the end, when the controlled gigantic animals all had to make their way to the city and in the process destroyed everything they came across, they made it look so scary and real. The movement from the smaller cities, forest, deserts and water to the city was kind of intriguing. I would say that the production and scripting was quiet impressive.
The first scene in the movie was quiet funny as they displayed the Davis skills of speaking and controlling the Apes in the home, they have created for them. It functioned like a mini zoo, where people could come watch the animals leave like they were in the real jungle. Davis knew everyone of their names and communicated with them so seamlessly and easily. Most humans couldn’t really understand how he did and why they listened to him, but the truth was that he spent more time with the animals than he did with any other human, making it so easy for them to understand and communicate with him, the ape “George” also had a great sense of humor and he communicated so well, you would almost forget he was an animal. The main movie started when the scientific experiment of an evil company went bad, some of the samples from out of space fell on earth and corrupted some animals. They began to grow in skills, strength and attitude. Getting an antidote for them became a real struggle and that was the entire action of the movie.

To my verdict, I would score this movie 7/10, I did enjoy the movie a bit, but kind of felt that some scenes were unnecessarily prolonged, I was also shocked with the twist at the end, didn’t see that coming and felt it couldn’t have ended in another way. I still take my stands that the most important thing in a movie is a strong compelling story and this one wasn’t as compelling as I would have thought it would be.
It’s a 70% recommendation for all the adventure and animal movie lovers.
