Reactions to RAMPAGE Say The Rock Delivers a Fun Popcorn Flick

Of course the wolf flies.” “I was just thinking the only thing that’s missing right now is a giant crocodile.

The trailers for Dwayne Johnson’s upcoming action movie Rampage, based on the video game series, wasn’t shy in its trailers about embracing its ridiculous concept. When you’re going to have The Rock team up with a monster-sized gorilla to save Chicago from a giant wolf and huge reptile you obviously aren’t trying to make the Citizen Kane of the animal kingdom, you’re promising moviegoers a super fun, entertaining experience. So did it deliver on its promise? Based on the first reactions to the film after it’s world premiere in Los Angeles it certainly sounds like it did.

Our Dan Casey was in attendance and he got the movie he wanted and expected to see.

He wasn’t alone in having his popcorn-flick expectations filled either, because it sounds like this is one of those times where calling something “mindless” is a huge compliment.

Harambe died so that Rampage could live?

Jeffrey Dean Morgan was also singled out for his performance by many in attendance, although the film’s main villain seems to have left a lot to be desired.

Even the harshest criticism, which came from /Film’s Peter Sciretta, had praise for The Rock’s relationship with George.

Sounds like despite getting its villain wrong, Rampage offered up a fun time at the movies. And when your film prominently involves a giant flying wolf, what more could you ask for?

Rampage soars into theaters on April 13th.
