The movie was pretty bad.. giant monsters roaming the U.S. and the military has a colonel making decisions… not a general or the president. A colonel… terrible

As someone who loves to watch Monster Movies and someone who has never liked the Rampage games, I absolutely loved this movie. It was everything I could ever really want within a movie about monsters fighting and destroying cities. I also like how it both took itself too seriously and not seriously at the same time, having a very mature tone for it's action sequences but still having it's sense of fun. As for boring human scenes, I've seen every Godzilla movie, I think I'll be fine.

Woah Yvette Jeremy, I think you were way to hard on this movie. This movie deserved a buy on blue ray rating in my opinion and a spoiler review

Wayward Martian says:

Harsh bro, nothing touches the level of sharknado, ESPECIALLY THE ROCK!

Julio Bonilla Jr. says:

I saw it last night.

Tj Lee says:

I thought it would’ve been cool to see the monsters rampage across America instead of just Chicago

Ty-zaan44 says:

You don't have any subs , in Chicago. NO FUCKIN SHIT. XD

God Of Destruction Geene says:

This motherfucker… Just review the movie and get straight to the point nobody wants to hear your cheesy jokes and input.

QUEENDOM says:

This movie should bomb. But this is a weird culture of enjoy trash movies lol

xXOnline RatXx says:

I was expecting nothing out of this movie but damn I really enjoyed this flick. The last 20 min had me smile and laughing ….great

XenoKaiju says:

Why do I get the feeling critics just automatically decide to hate monster movies without giving them a chance? I mean it feels like it a majority of the time. Not to praise the movie higher than it is but that's so insulting to call it a Sharknado movie.
Sharknado required no thought and was made for the cost of a new pair of shoes. Rampage has talent behind it that knows what movie they're making and deliver the best possible experience. I'll admit I'm a little bias to monster movies but I can't deny the fun I had! You shouldn't expect Arrival out of a movie with a flying wolf.

Bullion9999 says:

I was able to immerse into this story. It kept me interested. I agree with your assessment.

Lastjustice says:

Rampage was alright, but it made a clunky concept of something inheritly simple. There was too much effort to ground the movie when it's not something that needed to be done. Right away there's this paragraph of infodumped before the movie even started. They went thru such painful lengths to justify the science and tactics being used to counter measure the monsters with all the jargon. Plot device substance makes mutant animals…done. Stuff happens because bad science…Done…it's what was going happen, over explaining it doesn't make it less the trope.

The movie doesn't give us much of the monsters till end in chicago, as they are on route till then, and implied people dying and destruction is off screen till then. The finale is entertaining enough, but it just takes too long to get there. I could envision people being bored and not very much invested long before this comes along.

The Rock is only character that has any stakes in this The movie ultimately could focused on being more straight forward and not jamming the story up with so much unneeded fat. I get there be alot less movie, but I feel they could put something else there or gave more meat to the characters that actually stuck around. Like had a conflict between The merc leader Burke and the Rock in both views and coming to blows as a constrast to the Doctor trying be the better person and connecting with the rock. Ultimately everyone agrees the monsters need to die except George, so there's little conflict outside of the physical one.

I agree the monsters just being giant animals was a miss, as I feel like there could have been a more interesting movie dealing with that. I feel like the Rock, his nerdy coworker and the girl hitting on him might been the original planned trinity, but that plan got scrapped as this movie has a vibe of rewrites along the way.

On a side note, the Rock calls the two guys he knocks out on the Airforce base MPs…they are not called that. His character was in the army, and their miltary police so still would make sense that he in particular would say that, but the Air force refers to their police as Security police or security forces. SP or SF for short. As an Airman that sort of thing jumped at me, but I imagine no one else would notice that detail.

It was fun, I’d give it 4

Tyra Jeneen says:

Big trouble little China is my favorite cheesy movie 😊

mark5009mark5009 says:

Lol Chicago is not the world. Chicago is the anal dingleberry of the United States It's. Lol

MrDoug41 says:

I liked this movie. It was mindless fun.

orange9280 says:

I may be in the minority for this but the Netflix’s Game Over Man is ludicrous fun. It’s a really bad movie but it was my guilty pleasure and I was entertained and I like the 3 guys together since I’m a fan of if their Workaholics.

Mattia Berti says:

Personally it's the best movie based on a videogame untill now… even though it's far from perfection.

I hope in a sequel.

Drixenol86 says:

I was expecting The Rock to transform into a giant ape.

Diadlo says:

George is friggin funny though

Eduardo Sanchez says:

I thought the movie was pretty good I had a good time. 8.5 out of 10 for me.
