      Passable action nonsense

      Posted

      Time for yet another Dwayne Johnson action vehicle. He does at least a dozen a year these days. This time around, the subject-de-grace is Hollywood’s latest attempt at a movie based on a video game, and we all know what powerhouse films those things are. This is Rampage, based on an arcade classic from the 80s and 90s, wherein giant monsters wreck a city and eat people. It was as basic as they come for game in those days in terms of plot, and this film follows in much the same vein. That’s not to say this movie is terrible by any means. In fact, it may be the best video game movie to date, if only by virtue of being “least bad” and “most watchable.” Rampage is able to succeed, at least as much as one can hope, because it is aware of what it is and doesn’t venture too far from expectations. Everything is kept very simple, so this movie isn’t going to win anyone over looking for depth or challenge, but it does satisfy those looking for a dumb action movie dumb action and big effects. Like many other video game movies based on properties with little to no plot, Rampage has to make up most all of it, including premise and all the human characters. The premise is your basic evil science makes giant monsters because… science. The villains seem like they were pulled from a Saturday morning cartoon. And there are the standard army guys who don’t listen and just throw missiles at it. Nothing significant deviates from the standard tropes. Because of this, when actual emotion and drama are attempted with some characters’ backstories (only through expositional dialogue, no less), it falls flat because it’s not found anywhere else and it too is pulled from the box-o-clichés. It is minor and infrequent enough not to distract too much. Most actors do well enough for what they are and what this film is. The villains overact with their weaseliness and blatant corporate evil, but the script doesn’t demand more from them than that; their demises are both fitting and funny. The scientist lady is also passable for what she is, but she is sidelined and incidental at best. What carries this film is obviously Dwayne Johnson and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. They are charismatic, funny, and their charm here stems from that they clearly know that this movie is absurd and dumb but they also run with how fun and ridiculous it can be. Sadly though, Joe Manganiello was wasted here. He got better treatment in Justice League and Spider-Man. The pacing is problematic, but that’s mostly because this is a feature-length movie, and that requires a plot. The psudeo-science, character motivations and relationships are quickly set up, but then the plot meanders for almost an hour until it gets to what everyone came for: giant monsters wrecking a major city. When it does finally get there, it does quite well. But here, it was definitely the destination and not the journey. I personally don’t take issue with the departures made from the game in terms of character design or plot; here, it makes more sense for the purposes of film and at least partially grounding what is a ridiculous scenario. Overall, Rampage was an okay film. And that’s the best I can say for it. It knows that it’s a mindless popcorn flick that will be quickly experienced and then done with. It takes that absurdity and runs with it, but it can only run so far with what it’s been given. Final grade: C+

      The Rock on Autopilot

      Rampage is the happy meal version of a movie. It's cheap and easy and you walk away mostly satisfied even if there was no nutritional value whatsoever. It's a strange world where Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson can still be seen in theaters in his last big-budget action adventure that involves a jungle and then the first time we see the chrome-domed former wrestler in Rampage he just so happens to once again be making his way through a similar environment; it’s as if the star is guiding us out of one movie and into the next. As we are welcomed into this new world of Rampage by The Rock himself we are introduced to his Davis Okoye, a primatologist AKA someone who studies nonhuman primates, who works at the San Diego Zoo and has essentially fostered one of the last remaining albino gorillas to be his own. George, as played through motion capture not by Andy Serkis, but by Jason Liles, is a seven foot tall, five hundred plus-pound primate who can communicate with Johnson's Davis with as much ease as a deaf child might be able to communicate with their hearing enabled parent and who also has a good sense of humor about himself and his circumstances. The one thing Rampage does better than it has any right to do is develop this relationship between the two biggest stars on screen meaning Johnson is really just that good at making audiences believe he is the coolest guy around. Not everyone could make befriending a monkey cool and inspiring as opposed to the weird and off-putting looks most would get, but the guy does it; acting as if it's the most normal thing in the world and oh yeah, he was also part of an anti-poaching military force once upon a time too, so stick that in your pipe and smoke it. And sure, the fact it’s The Rock that is both this intelligent and extremely fit guy who clearly has a streak of compassion with an especially soft spot for animals is part of the appeal in Rampage as it is the ability The Rock brings along with his presence that makes a movie as ridiculous as this work as well as it does…even if it probably shouldn't. That said, and having never played the video game on which this is based, I expected the latest from director Brad Peyton (Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, San Andreas) to be a little more fun than this ends up being. Yes, there are moments of pure outrageous bliss, but they are too few and far between to make Rampage feel like the large-sized combo it was advertised to be. Rather, Rampage is drenched in that Happy Meal feeling from its quick and easy delivery to its processed if not convenient conclusion.

      Fun 3D movie, great disconnect from the real world

      The rock cracks me up! His movies are all basically alike - hero saves the day with fun comedy with serious action! Fun to watch with great picture and sound and this movie achieves that! Great disconnect from real life. The Rock makes the movie. The CGI is A++ and the 3D is perfect! The plot was typical to these type movies, everything flowed with all the elements needed to make an action packed movie.. Really worth it in 3D!!! I will watch this film over and over again its that fun to watch. The 3D version was not in stock on the first day of release on the best buy site????? It was several days later when it became available, i kept checking. Local stores did not get any 3D versions and that's 3 stores, they all push 4K. Ever thought people may want both? I know 4K has no 3D and probably never will, but with modern advances to high end projectors they upscale HD to 4K and the movies look just as good in my opinion and 3D looks just like I see in the theaters so come on! 4K looks great but so does 3D Blu-ray! Some movies you have to watch in 3D and this is one.

      Lots of action in this film, and I found the CGI work to be very good. I liked the interaction of Dwayne Johnson and "George" the albino gorilla. The storyline was interesting and there were other actors in the film who did a good job with their parts. Watch for the Texas agent who moves from antagonist to an interesting helper. Also, the special features are very good. They explain and show the tremendous work involved in bringing things to "life" in the film. The 3D is also good and complements the film very well. I recommend this film to those who like lots of action, monsters, and Dwayne Johnson. It held my attention throughout and was exciting.

      This movie was pretty cool! I'm not the biggest fan of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, but I really enjoyed this good old video game turned movie. I think a lot of people will complain about this movie and how bad it was, but once again you can just read the title and see the cover picture and know it's not going to be an Oscar winner, but rather a really fun, mindless, action movie. I also thought Jeffrey Dean Morgan was pretty funny in this movie as the comic relief. I definitely recommend this movie to those who like movies like this and don't need a big hard to understand story line to enjoy it. If you're gonna watch this and complain about it, then you're definitely an idiot. I love good disaster movies!

      It's not an awful movie, but it's no Oscar winner either. Based off the 80's arcade game of the same name, it's a decent attempt at making a story out of a very simple premise: monster creatures destroying city. It's fun in that sci-fi B-movie sense, entertaining with a pencil thin storyline. Teens should enjoy it, adults.... well, that's a tougher call. Action is good, acting (especially some certain accents) is pretty bad. Antagonists are unremarkable cardboard cut-outs with nearly laughable motives and nearly as bad acting. Overall, fun flick if you want to see big creatures tearing up Chicago, just leave your thinking and rational part of the brain in the other room.

      Awesome Action & Adventure, Drama, Science Fiction Film!Primatologist Davis Okoye (Johnson), a man who keeps people at a distance, shares an unshakable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent, silverback gorilla who has been in his care since birth. But a rogue genetic experiment gone awry mutates this gentle ape into a raging creature of enormous size. To make matters worse, it's soon discovered there are other similarly altered animals. As these newly created alpha predators tear across North America, destroying everything in their path, Okoye teams with a discredited genetic engineer to secure an antidote, fighting his way through......lots of fun.

      Fun Movie, Good 3D

      From all the bad thing I heard about this movie, I was quite surprise it was actually pretty fun to watch. There was good action involved, and the special effects were good. The 3D effects were actually pretty good even the intro. One thing that was definitely bugging me was the bad acting of Naomie Harris, even when she tried to be funny it was bad acting period. This version comes with 2 Disc, 1 3D the other is the BD version. Overall this was a fun movie to watch with good 3D effects, for 3D fans it worth to have in your collection. Note: This film was viewed on a 2016 LG OLED (OLED65E6P) and Oppo UDP203.
