Rampage, the feature film based on a 1980s-era arcade video game, hits theaters next week and, like many horror fans, I’m curious but skeptical. It certainly looks like a big-budget, kaiju-themed flick, but it also looks like a bromance between The Rock and a giant albino monkey. I’m just not sure whether it’s something I should consider spending my dime on, you know what I’m saying?

Official Synopsis: Global icon Dwayne Johnson headlines the action adventure “Rampage,” directed by Brad Peyton. Johnson stars as primatologist Davis Okoye, a man who keeps people at a distance but shares an unshakable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent, incredibly rare albino silverback gorilla who has been in his care since he rescued the young orphan from poachers. But a rogue genetic experiment gone awry mutates this gentle ape into a raging creature of enormous size. To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered there are other similarly altered animals. As these newly created alpha predators tear across North America, destroying everything in their path, Okoye teams with discredited geneticist Kate Caldwell (Naomie Harris) to secure an antidote, fighting his way through an ever-changing battlefield, not only to halt a global catastrophe but to save the fearsome creature that was once his friend.
