Ashdoc's movie review---Rampage

Energyne , which is a genetic research company has sent a station into space . It's experiments of increasing the size of animals have so spectacularly succeeded that a rodent has grown enormously in size and destroys the station . It falls onto the earth scattering pathogens from it's research samples around , which infect a reptile living in water , a wolf and a gorilla named George . All three begin to grow enormously in size .

The caretaker of George is played by Dwayne Johnson , who is a primatologist with more love for animals than women , as a luscious babe who propositions to him discovers . But as George grows in size and becomes more ferocious , he is drawn into protecting the city of Chicago from catastrophe . For the owners of Energyne are emitting powerful radio signals from a tower in Chicago to call those animals infected with the pathogens to come . The owners have no plans to use their newfound technology for any good , but instead plan to use it as a biological weapon . That is what a rogue scientist ( played by Naomie Harris ) who once worked for Energyne says to the character played by Dwayne .

As the enormously grown ferocious creatures threaten Chicago . the military plans to use huge conventional bombs to destroy them . But that will flatten the entire city . It is up to the characters played by Dwayne and Naomie to stop the mayhem by unleashing some mayhem of their own . They are helped by George the friendly gorilla , who hopes that the couple will shack up in the end !!

The action is nonstop and so are the thrills . Armed helicopters , tank buster aircraft , automatic weapons fitted with latest scopes---all add to the action . But the hero of it all is Dwayne Johnson , who carries the film on his admittedly all too broad shoulders . He is helped by the character played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan , who struts about like a cowboy and has the drawl of from the western movies of yore .

Buildings and skyscrapers and boats are turned upside down in the mayhem created by the animals . And the huge animals have been recreated well by special effects . Their most frightening feature is their sharp teeth , which are shown to good effect in the movie .

Acting wise , the movie has some decent performances . Special effects are good and the movie looks good especially in the IMAX form that I saw it in . Photography is good and colours are okay . But the movie and it's action can't be taken too seriously and it is good only for some on the spot entertainment .

Verdict---Decent .

Three stars out of five .

Reminds me of something. In the mid 90s, Jurassic park was the first hollywood movie to be screened* in the small town in Orissa where i was. With Hindi version though. 'Speed' followed soon and the audience was clapping on that famous scene where the bus jumps over the incomplete bridge. One Bihari colleague watched Jurassic park saying, "Good movie, the kids were cute but there is no kissing"

* besides the 'morning shows'

Re: Ashdoc's movie review---Rampage

sounds boring.

Ashdoc, do the characters played by Dwayne and Naomi not have apparent names in the movie? or are they difficult to follow - which probably means so much happening on screen... I think I will skip this one.

All superhero or disaster movies are based on such retarded premises. Possibly Badriprasad is working on a chemical which could increase the size of ..

Have a theory on this. The guy wanted to develop the pill that would increase @ick size. But first wanted to test this on animals.
