Film overview: Global powerhouse Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson once again leads in the new action-adventure film, Rampage. Rampage also stars actors Breanne Hill (Amy), Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Harvey Russell), Naomie Harris (Dr. Kate Caldwell) and Malin Akerman (Claire Wyden).  This film is definitely one to watch if you enjoy sci-fi thrillers with intense action.

Directed by Brad Peyton, Johnson stars as primatologist Davis Okoye, a man who keeps people at a distance, but shares an unshakable bond with George an extraordinarily intelligent and incredibly rare albino silverback gorilla who has been in his care since he was rescued as a young orphan from poachers. However, as a rogue genetic experiment gone wrong, this gentle ape mutates into a raging creature of enormous size. If things were not bad enough, soon after Johnson discovers there are other animals like George.
