Dwayne Johnson aka Rock, the WWE fighter turned actor, is commonly known for his part in Hollywood disaster flicks and weird/ crazy adventure flicks like GI Joe, Journey to the center of the Earth, even the recent flick, the blockbuster Jumanji. He has now reunited with his San Andreas maker Brad Peyton. to come up with another crazy disaster/ destruction setup project, Rampage. Here's team AP Herald's exclusive first on net Rampage Review.

A tech company owned by Megalomaniacs Malin Akerman and Jake Lacy develops a technology that changes animals into huge, gargantuan monsters, and due to unfortunate turn of events, it also affects the wrong set of animals other than the intended ones, and this includes Primatologist Davis Okoye(Dwayne Johnson)'s friend, a Gorilla, and now the whole world is at risk. How Davis and his friend rescue the whole world is what Rampage is all about.

Star Performance

Dwayne Johnson aka Rock is his usual self, as he thrashes things around, smashes animals that are this time huge, damaging anything and everything that hinders his path, and he exudes good chemistry with the VFX created Gorilla. To say the VFX Gorilla plays the major role in the screenplay would be an understatement, as the character with its bonding with Rock's character looks perfect on screen. The evil antagonists Malin Akerman and Jake Lacy are just about adequate and play loud caricatures. in their cliched roles.

Techinical Team

Rampage, based on the classic arcade game is a perfect adaptation of the game with interesting elements added to it and while the original Rampage had made use of Humans getting exploited by the company owning antagonists, in the latest version, the animals replace  humans, and Rock has a field day, walking around blazing guns and destroying stuff. Music by Andrew Lockington keeps the momentum going, and perfectly sets up the mood for an action flick, while Jaron Presant's cinematography makes sure each and every action sequence is a treat for action lovers.


Rock and Brad Peyton have begun from exactly where they left in San Andreas, and with a gripping screenplay, make what could have become another dumb destruction flick on the lines of Roland Emmerich flicks, into a fun watch, with its moments that provide popcorn entertainment. Rampage's success is that the movie delivers what it promises and what one can expect, and that makes it emerge yet another winner for Dwayne Johnson and Brad Peyton.
