Rampage Movie Review
Rampage:It is also an end-to-the-world movie
Rampage is a science fiction movie but it is said to be based on a video game series of the 80s. The movie starts with a happy note where a primatologist is seen in a humane relationship with an albino gorilla. The primatologist saved the gorilla from poachers when it was a child.
Science In The Movie
There is a research space station Athena -1 owned by a gene mutation company Energyne. The company is involved in weaponizing animals with genetic manipulation. But a project results in total failure when a mutated rat runs havoc in the space station. The company wraps up its project and throws the genetic material to the earth. George comes into contact with the toxic material and becomes a weapon. Similarly, a wolf and an alligator also turn into beasts.
George attains an enormous height and gains massive weight after coming into contact with thegenetic material. A confused George breaks his cage and goes on a rampage. The other two animals also start moving towards the civilization to test their physical power. New York City is under threat from three monsters. But there is one hope that is the primatologist. He can try controlling the gorilla.
While killing the animals seems the best option but the movie has a message that is to save the planet and not only the civilization. Rescue operation starts with the primatologist teaming up with a geneticist to secure an antidote that can reduce the impact of gene mutation in animals. But there is a long way to go before the drug is made and the animals are controlled.
The Man And The Ape
Primatologies Davis Okoye rescued the silver back albino gorilla George as head of an anti-poaching unit. George remains with Okoye and they both develop a never-before relationship. When George becomes a monster, the government wants Davis Okoye to control his pet. But Okoye needs help for taming his animal and others.
Dwayne Johnson as Davis Okoye, a primatologist is the biggest star in the movie. And the next attraction is George, the silver back gorilla. They both have a good understanding; they respect and care for each-other. The close bond between a human and an apeis the highlight of the movie.
