You can’t turn your head without seeing Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in some sort of film. The guy is everywhere, and to be honest, he deserves it. He’s hardworking, he’s charismatic and now he’s going to be the star in yet another video game movie. Yes, you heard me, another video game movie.
Some of you may remember the old Midway game, Rampage. Where you played either George the gorilla, a reptile named Lizzie and a wolf-like create called Ralph. In the game, you were tasked with destroying as many locations as possible in the world, before the military took you down. It looks like the movie is going more or less, follow the original game. In fact, Dwayne Johnson gave a short summary of the movie’s plot.
“I head up an anti-poaching unit out of Rwanda,” Johnson wrote. “My best friend is a rare albino gorilla named George. Very bad people infect George, an alligator and a wolf with a serum. All three animals grow at an unprecedented rate. Their size, speed, agility and violent aggression is off the charts. They go on a deadly rampage and want to destroy the world.”
Judging from the trailer, we’ll definitely see a whole lot of destruction and thanks to those monster-sized beasts. If anything this movie should be brainless fun. And let’s be honest, those are some of the best kinds of movies.
I love and enjoy Dwayne Johnson as much as the next person. Though, I still haven’t forgotten how much of a stinker that DOOM movie was. Here’s to hoping that Rampage does much, much better.
Rampage will be released in theaters on April 20, 2018.
