Rampage

Director Brad Peyton's San Andreas and Journey star Dwayne Johnson leads this sci-fi action adventure based on the classic 1980s video game.

Primatologist Davis Okoye (Johnson) 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.

Watching it, you can imagine the creative team straining to adequately acknowledge the source material, but they would have been better off starting from scratch.

Morgan's performance is a gem of comic timing and audience-directed winks. He elevates a movie that’s mostly about watching stuff get stomped down.

As for Mr. Johnson, one hesitates to level a charge of "phoning it in" against him. He's a generally reliable performer, but I have to say it seems he had less fun here than he did in the recent Jumanji.

It is entertainingly over the top, although perhaps the CGI work isn’t quite out of the top drawer.

It's King Kong with the mutation ideas from the rebooted Planet of the Apes, scaled up like Transformers and Godzilla so the creatures can trash whole cities.

Not that you would anyway, but it doesn't pay to think too hard about "Rampage." Sure, it could be improved (shorter would have helped), but it gets the job done in a more or less acceptable way.

It’s not a movie for critics, that much is clear. The problem is that it’s not for anyone else, either.

As much fun as it has with the idea of animals stomping cities to rubble, it seems shy of going completely over the top, and it’s the poorer for it.
