Film: Rampage Click for more info

Ah, Rampage. It's one of the first games I remember playing with excitement - the characters! The destruction! The ability to play with three players! So yes, I will fully admit I went into this with some expectation of a nostalgia fix.

But it turns out that Rampage manages to balance precisely on that fine line between flagrant fanservice and having a decent identity of its own - yes homages were paid, but the good (and bad) of the film were wholly owned by it.

Other than that, Rampage is an action film with CGI and Dwayne Johnson, so you don't actually need a review to tell you what to expect. It provides exactly what is promised, and so whether that's something you'll want or not is for you to decide. I for one really liked it so it receives a hearty recommendation from me.
