    I HATED it.
    TLDR; it's a cash grab, and because of it the franchise can't come back, and it missed every highlight the games provided.

    Not only did it completely ignore the canon from literally ALL of the games, but the characters to an actual rampage fan such as myself are nothing like the characters from the game, they don't even look like themselves. Plus it ignores the rule of them being equals, and of course George is made the star, and main character just like in Total Destruction not allowing the rest to get a spotlight. I was surprised that Ralph even got in the picture, not even to mention the other roughly 42 monsters who don't make an appearance. This movie is now the soul reason Rampage can never come back, and i'm positive that the only reason it even came out is because Midway liquidated, if they were still around I highly doubt they would allow a film of that stature to be made about the game, if any at all. This movie is a cash grab on a nostalgic trend and nothing else; as Critic would say, FUCK THIS MOVIE!

    If I were to film it, a huge fan of the franchise, it's my favorite after all and I've played every game including puzzle attack I would have made it very differently. I would've utilized DeMonic and Scumlabs, there already was a story arc that was very good, it was about greed, not just in the form of cash but also in the form of technology and creationism. I'd have kept the monsters relatively the same, I definitely wouldn't have done it in live action, i'd have used animation and copied some of the style, but even if I was going to use live action I'd present the characters as they already were. And you can be damn sure I'd cram every single monster into the movie that I could. also it should be noted that the series isn't about the people, it's about the monsters and you feel some sympathy for them.
    okay, since you seemed a bit confused I'd also like to point out that they have names! the guerrilla is George, the wolf is Ralph, the Lizard is Lizzy, and Rhett the rat(possibly Curtis) also makes an appearance for like three seconds.
    now will you people please stop praising it.
    thanks for reading.

    I didn’t enjoy this movie it was over the top the cgi in the beginning through me off the battles while cool to me were dragged out the villains were stupid setting up the one thing that would subdue the giant monsters in the middle of the city I thought the wolf having wings was stupid I couldn’t even remember the names of characters they were so bland

    In my personal opinion this movie was just terrible, especially the part where they fed that person to the giant gorilla, it feels like they deliberately are trying to tick people off. But you're not wrong for having an opinion.

    How would Tamara react if she saw her apartment building in an Action Movie? Or being demolished in said Action Movie? lol it's like knowing your home town is the live location of a movie production and you see all the camera crews, actors and directors doin their thing, or when your town is the name or story behind a song. A certain level of cool right there.

    I haven't seen the film, though I don't think I need to. The trailer shows pretty much all the flaws with the film. In the video games, the monsters were originally humans. The way they were transformed has changed between the original series (George by an experimental vitamin, Lizzie by a radioactive lake, and Ralph by a food additive) and Rampage: Total Destruction (All of them were mutated by scum soda.) None of the games had them mutated by a space rock, nor did they start off as normal wild animals. Plus, Lizzie is not a crocodile cause crocodiles are not lizards. Lizzie, to me, looks more like an iguana. The games, after awhile, were also comedic at times. This movie, going by the trailer, doesn't seem to have the same amount of humor value. This movie wouldn't really appeal to fans of the game as it takes too many liberties with the source material. If you were going to take liberties with Rampage, then it should have been that the monsters were the (unintended) end result of a super soldier serum called scum and what should have been people with animal attributes growing no more than four meters tall become giant out of control monsters, or the monsters were animals that were part of animal testing for the addictive quality of Scum Soda which mutated them into giant monsters. Either way, the movie should have been cg animated in my opinion. Seriously Hollywood. There is nothing wrong with making a cg animated movie that's rated either "PG-13" or "R".

  • Meowhausen & Friends

    You are right, Tammy. The Rock is a modern day Midas. He manages to stay fresh and clean despite the occasional dud. I didn't enjoy San Andreas, for instance (talk about cheese!) but, Jumanji was really fun, I thought. I am heavily into story writing for my channel, so I've read and deconstructed many screenplays and the latter was a refreshing take on a fun concept (without the noir drama of Existenz, for example).

  • bobelobalopalis
    bobelobalopalis Year ago

    Loved this movie it was a ton of fun. I feel they really missed out on an end credit scene with like some poachers in the jungle has a gorilla cornered the rock shows up. He tells the poachers they shouldn't be doing this, and they're all "what are you going to do about it" pointing guns at him. And the rock all calm is like nothing but he won't be to happy as he points to George coming out of the foliage. Also this movie needs a sequel, Mcguffin us up some more evil science pods from the space station and have the rock and George travel around the world fighting monsters. or terrorist using the evil science gas to make monsters to sell on the black market.

    • bobelobalopalis

      Hell if it goes well enough create some new monsters and make another rampage game. Its a simple but fun concept.

    Rampage is an odd choice for a film adaptation in 2018..... but, still. it's a cool premise, that Hollywood cant seem to pull off. We just don't ever seem to get GOOD Godzilla v king kong style movies. they're all dogshit. If the reviews are stellar, I'd consider it.

    Scientists that became monsters - Correct! I'm kinda disappointed they took out that the monsters were originally human. In the old games when you ran out of health you'd fall and revert back into a human and start walking to the side of the screen (had until you made it all the way to insert another quarter or continue). If you were playing with someone else they could eat you for a bit of health.

    Sorry Tamara, but I just wasn't feeling this one.
    -The Rock was on autopilot.
    -The villains were cartoonish.
    -Naomi Harris was given nothing to do.
    -Characters from the beginning of the film disappear halfway through.
    -Joe Maganello is in the film for only a short amount of time and he does nothing.
    -Time to feel for or get to know George wasn't implemented properly.
    -The ASL was poorly executed.
    It did have some good action scenes and anytime Jeffrey Dean Morgan is on screen, he steals the show magnificently. 6/10. Only slightly above average.
