It wouldn’t be a summer movie season without Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson pushing out at least one film. Last year he hit with Fate of the Furious, but missed with Baywatch. In 2018, he brings us Rampage. A rogue genetic experiment gone awry transforms a gentle ape into a raging monster. As these newly created monsters tear across North America, destroying everything in their path, his caretaker since birth Okoye (Johnson) teams with a discredited genetic engineer to secure an antidote, not only to halt a global catastrophe but to save the fearsome creature that was once his friend.
Our Take: Trailer has potential for this to be a combination of old school King Kong, Godzilla fare meets Independence Day. If they get it right this could have franchise potential. If they get it wrong, perhaps Johnson will be at the Razzies and not Oscars this year.
