Hey 3.5 readers. BQB here.
When I was a kid, I loved the “Rampage” video game. It was popular as an arcade game and later they made console versions. You played as your choice of a giant ape, lizard, or werewolf and you made your character climb buildings, bash them, eat people, complete mayhem and destruction. It was all very cartoonish with humor, i.e. you could eat people while they were sitting on the toilet. Your character was usually a human that turned into a monster, so if you were injured, you’d turn into a human without clothes and slink away embarrassed.
With the occasional exception, video game based movies usually suck. So, when I heard they were making a “Rampage” video game, I thought Hollywood was really scraping the bottom of the barrel. I mean, the game was fun, but it was pretty mindless and devoid of any plot whatsoever.
Then I saw the trailer and I have to admit, it looks pretty awesome. Partly because they went all out with the special effects, but mostly because of the Rock. From GI Joe to Fast and Furious, The Rock saves all.
What say you, 3.5?
