Rampage ★★★½

More entertaining than it really has any right to be, and proof that The Rock can lift almost anything by his presence alone. But it also revels in some glorious city destruction that is visually clear and carries heft in a way few similar sequences in other blockbusters fail to convey, with a big CG gorilla imbued with a level of emotion and character more likely to be found in the Apes reboot trilogy. Kudos too for its slimy villains straight out of the 80's, appropriate given its source material.
