Rampage is pretty stupid, but overall isn’t boring, it’s entertaining at some points and has pretty great visual effects, but i wouldn’t recommend it, as of now, I’m kinda getting sick of these big Dwayne Johnson movies, not that i blame Dwayne Johnson at all, cause he is good, but they all just fell like schlock movies just made for money, but i will give the full movie some credit that it’s not awful. But i don’t feel like watching this movie ever again.
But not even Dwayne Johnson in all his muscle-glory nor Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s charmingly sassy presence are enough to give sense to this uneven and dumb kaiju blockbuster, and while one could argue these sort of focus doesn’t need that much dedication or production, but taking itself way too serious and lacking the proper logic behind its dull concept makes for a film that, thankfully, doesn’t lasts that long, but that possess its best part towards the third act. Now i will admit that i free downloaded Rampage from Filmxy. This is just a good old fashion 80s style action movie to watch online. Funny interactions, doesn’t take itself too serious and doesn’t get political.
The unlikable characters make this low stakes caper based on actual events difficult to watch at times. It's inter-spliced with interviews of the real life characters which you'd think would make the movie more appealing and dynamic but it just slows it down from it's already sluggish pace. This film is produced in part by Movie Pass which was involved in spiking positive reviews on RT for Gotti and may have done the same with this one. I only watched American Animals due to the high RT score (88% at the time) and it seemed like it should be in the 60 - 70% range at best.

A strong, if cliched (sometimes by nature, as with the fantasy Oceans 11 sequence) heist film that is really anchored by an adherence to the messy, unpleasantly violent, and grim reality of grand theft rather than the fun and glamour other heist movies traffic in. It is also led by an excellent young cast, even if it is a little weird to see Barry Keoghan playing a 'normal' kid after watching Killing of a Sacred Deer. There is a nice, ratcheting intensity to the film as well...by the time it boils over it is absolutely gripping and delivers on exactly what you'd want from a thriller like this

So I LOVED this. I loved how it's seamlessly edited together. The way the short interviews with the real guys is added to the mix, is done in a way I haven't seen before. This doesn't surprise me, because I had the same feeling when I first watched The Imposter. I had never seen a doco done in that style before. The Imposter was a Doco/Drama. American Animals is basically flipped and is a Drama/Doco..The true elements to this really pack a punch. Being reminded all the way through that this is a true story (not 'based' on a true story) just gives it that little extra. I was hooked from the opening, and found myself on the edge of my seat by the finale..Everyone is great in this and the soundtrack is fricken awesome! Highly recommended!
