Rampage, the review

Take two top movie ingredients: The CRISPR,  one of the most intresting cospiracy theory in this period, and a classic videogame of ’80…give them to acclaimed film making duo Dwayne Johnson and Brad Payton (San Andreas & Journey 2: The Mysterious Island) and you get a good film, not a masterpiece, but an ejoyable one that make you spent two pleasent hours.
The story start, like a fairy tail, far far away….a space station with a little problems with its experiments, and then moving in San Diego zoo, where George, a snow albin apes, saved by primatologist Davis Okoy, lives safe from poachedes that kill all his family.
Action, gags and some easter eggs (take a look in the villanin office 😉 ) for the perfect action film, even if there’s little room for co-protagonist and many times the story and the dialogue became too much tearful.

“Last night George was 2 meters and 13 and weighed 226 kilograms. This morning is 2 meters and 74 and weighs 450 kilograms “- Davis

Global icon Dwayne Johnson headlines the action adventure “Rampage,” directed by Brad Peyton. Johnson stars as primatologist Davis Okoye, a man who keeps people at a distance but shares an unshakable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent, incredibly rare albino silverback gorilla who has been in his care since he rescued the young orphan from poachers. 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 discredited geneticist Kate Caldwell (Naomie Harris) 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.
