TL;DR – Today I take a look at the world of Rampage and all the rampage they did in Rampage
Now in my review of Rampage (see review) I mentioned that I really liked the film, and that it might be the best direct adaption of a video game that we have gotten so far. But one aspect of the film that I liked that didn’t mention in my review is how much of America we jump through before we hit Chicago.
While I was quick to write everything down I did miss where in Colorado the Private Military Base was so I had to estimate that. As well as this, there are some locations which are vaguely mentioned like the East Coast of the Gulf of Mexico, and others you just had to guess like the plane crash site.
However, in the end, we get a film that actually charts across most of the United States of America and also shows that Lizzie sure can swim fast.
TL;DR – Rampage knows what it is and leans into it hard, with giant monsters crashing into buildings and Dwayne Johnson being his charismatic best
Score – 3.5 out of 5 stars
Post-Credit Scene – There is no post-credit scene
Now, this is the point at the start of the review where I talk about how there has never been a great movie adaption of a video game so far, and I talk about the problems about adapting and trot out examples like Assassin’s Creed (see review) and Tomb Raider (see review). However, this time around I don’t think I have to do that because while this is by no means a masterpiece I think it is the first film to really crack that adaption puzzle or at least the one who has got the closest to it. With that in mind, today we are going to enter the realm of giant monsters crashing into buildings, and who doesn’t love a giant monsters crashing into buildings.
