While all moviegoers currently in the anticipation to watch Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War tomorrow, I had to watch this movie twice for accompanying a friend who bought me the ticket earlier. Thank you buddy!
Adapted from Bally Midway’s 1986 video game-based adventure , Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is generally a reliable performer, however I have to say it seems he had less fun here than he did in the recent Jumanji.
When a gorilla 🦍 (an albino gorilla to be exact), a wolf 🐺 and a crocodile 🐊 are mutated into a giant beasties, it’s up to The Rock to stop the rampage. Or thing for sure, Hollywood moviemakers never cease to amaze the audiences with massive scale of CGI and largely The Rock plays his role well, as usual we all know his trustworthy face, reassuring voice and his ability to fly a chopper, and calmly parachuting from a burning plane are pretty much go over the top.
Nonetheless, Rampage has been proclaimed as the highest-rated video game movie ever made. That doesn’t mean much in terms of critical approval, since the movie is currently sitting on a 50% Rotten Tomatoes rating. But given the very low standards associated with video game adaptations, and The Rock’s claim that Rampage may have “broken the dreaded video game curse,” the actor’s latest vehicle for muscle-flexing and zinger-delivering has some kind significance, even if it is simply to trigger a conversation about greatness and video game adaptations.
All in all, I must say Rampage is still able to standout as one of the most entertaining and fun monster movie (referring to the appearance of a gorilla) compared to the likes of “The Jungle Book”, “Mighty Joe Young” or even “Kong: Skull Island”. #rampage #rampagethemovie #therock #dwaynetherockjohnson #bigmeetsbigger #moviesynopsis #tgv #tgvau2setiawangsa #avidmoviegoer #blessed
