All these characters make for a movie that never slows down, but among all the mayhem, Johnson is completely lost. He doesn’t get a chance to truly show his comedy chops or acting skill, and his character is the least developed. He is, in fact, dwarfed by George, and every other hammy performance on screen. As a stupefyingly silly throwback monster movie, “Rampage” romps, but as a Johnson vehicle, sadly, it flops.
Starring Dwayne Johnson, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Naomie Harris. Directed by Brad Peyton.
Rated PG-13 for sequences of violence, action and destruction, brief language, and crude gestures. Check listings for theaters. 1 hour, 47 minutes.
Bottom line: It's fun as a silly throwback monster movie
