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 an ever-changing battlefield, not only to halt a global catastrophe but to save the fearsome creature that was once his friend.

I'm just gonna say this up front...a gigantic mutant sheep would have been an awesome addition...just saying.

Went to see Rampage with my husband. It is pretty much what you think it will be. Generic and predictable action movie writing. But how can you not want to watch a gigantic mutant alligator, a gigantic mutant wolf (part flying squirrel and porcupine) and a gigantic albino gorilla with a sick sense of humor fight it out in Chicago?

The writers didn't even try to make the science fiction plausible. Basically they Jurrasic Park some animals, but thanks to gene editing and some fancy science stuff they made a virus that can make these animals turn into gigantic hybrids in 24 hours.

If you are going because of Joe Manganiello, don't blink.

If you don't have anything else to do and just love the movie-going experience, then grab a matinee. The first two scenes in the movie are fantastic...there are a few other scenes sprinkled throughout that rocked.

There are lots of special effects that look good on the big screen. But you can probably just catch this one on TV.

My husband I both give it 3 1/2 "Us Sheep got to stick together"



  1. Great review... I had planned on waiting for this one on Redbox anyways, but good to know my instincts were dead on.

    How about watching it for Jeffrey Dean Morgan? Does he last longer than a 5 minutes? :)

    1. Jeffery Dean Morgan is pretty funny and makes it to the end of the movie. He plays a goverment agent as a Texan cowboy!

  2. Thanks for the review! I was wondering about this.

    1. You're welcome :) It was pretty much what I expected but you hold out hope it might pull out some surprises.
