How bad? I'm talking about a ten-foot gorilla who smashes everything.
If you're under the age of 13 and might enjoy seeing The Rock swap crude jokes with a CGI gorilla - or if you're over the age of 30 and have an inexplicably intense connection to a niche video game series - then there's a chance "Rampage" is for you.
Either you'll batten down the hatches and fully embrace just how flat out ludicrous the film is. You call me The Rock, you can call me Dwayne Johnson, you can call me daddy. His guns (both arms and arms, if you get my drift) are just as big as those of Stallone and Schwarzenegger in their heyday, but he doesn't have the sneer or the cyborg amorality.
Listen, this is a film where The Rock doesn't change shirts for the majority of the film.
The same accident plays out twice more elsewhere in America, on the plains of Wyoming and in the Florida Everglades: anyone who has played the game or seen the trailer will already know the results, but the film has so much fun unveiling them it would be a pity to give them away in print. He's the unbreakable freak of nature among other bigger freaks of nature.
But the only performance really of note in "Rampage" is by Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who plays an agent for an unnamed government agency with wild-eyed, cowboy abandon.
Dwayne looked dapper in a coordinating silver chequered suit, with a tight white t-shirt underneath.
Dr. Kate Caldwell (Naomie Harris) follows Davis (Dwayne Johnson)'s lead. An evil corporate executive (Malin Akerman) has been experimenting with for-profit pathogens that alter DNA and cause runaway growth and aggression. Neither seems to have a long-term plan for Project Rampage, but since when did evil need a reason?
Brad Peyton directs a script by Ryan J. Condal, Carlton Cuse, Ryan Engle, and Adam Sztykiel.
It's not likely Rampage is going to launch any major franchise universes but if there's any justice in the world, we'll see Morgan and Johnson come together again in some sort of buddy-cop story somewhere down the line.
What does strike you early on though is just how violent the filmmakers have made this movie. He is a guilty pleasure in films like these. He runs the wildlife sanctuary in San Diego, where George makes his home.
I am always impressed with motion capture and the actors who portray various creatures and Liles does a terrific job of emoting through facial expressions. You can tap the friends button on the upper left of the home screen to discover people, add friends and make new connections.
Without peaking, what kind of animal do you think Lizzie is?
Let's have some fun and best of luck.
Yeah... I had to take a minute and sit down on that one, too... It'll put a smile on your face even if it disrupts your stomach later.
