Peyton reunites with his San Andreas lead Dwayne Johnson in Rampage, an over-the-top movie about monstrous animals destroying the city of Chicago. Run of the mill premise but the execution is pretty over-the-top. Everything you expect in a monster vs monster movie is here, and then some. There's a flying giant wolf for crying out loud. Yes, it has wings and it literally flies. Then there's this Godzilla-like giant crocodile against an albino version of Kingkong. It's basically a preview of Kong vs Godzilla.

Rampage is an entertaining movie for sure, that is almost doesn't mind the stakes of the concept. It literally destroyed Chicago but all they care about is defeating the monstrous animals, and when they did, grins are all over their faces like nothing happened. Their not even apologetic. It just knows it's there to entertain, and doesn't want you to further contemplate of its logic. How they included the relationship of human to animals is pretty commendable though but when you ponder upon it, which you shouldn't, it's still feel a bit wacky.
