By now you’ve seen the promotional clips for the film “Rampage” which comes care of Warner Brothers Pictures and opens today in theaters everywhere. Let’s give a glance to the official poster, premise and casting to start you off right in determining if you want to check this one out.
The Plot: Primatologist Davis Okoye (Dwayne Johnson), a man who keeps people at a distance, shares an unshakable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent, albino silverback gorilla who has been in his care most of its life. But a mysterious genetic experiment mutates this once gentle ape into a raging creature of enormous size. To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered that a wolf (Ralph) and crocodile (Lizzie) have gone under similar changes. As these newly created apex predators battle each other for supremacy and tear across North America, destroying everything in their path, Okoye teams with a discredited genetic engineer (Naomie Harris) to secure an antidote, fight his way through the ever-changing battlefield, and not only to halt a global catastrophe, but to save the fearsome beast that was once his friend.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: In my trailer posts I pointed out that I felt this might be a lot of fun on the big screen but I don’t think I am going to get to see it anytime soon. These last few weeks have been VERY busy here at the PiercingMetal Media Command HQ with so many things to attend and to talk about. I mentioned being behind on seeing “Pacific Rim: Uprising”, “Ready Player One” and now this film “A Quiet Place” (the latter two have been getting rave reviews and that makes me sad that I am so far behind but I cannot be everywhere). I’m a big fan of The Rock and think he is great in these action movies with a dose of humor. What about you readers? Are you planning on seeing this film during the theatrical run or maybe even digging the original video game out of your storage closet to see if it still works?
