For a genre that’s been considered “cursed” more than once, Hollywood has shown no signs of abandoning video game adaptations. However, there is a school of thought that believes that the best examples in the history of the genre are not based at all on any pre-existing source material, namely that of Dwayne Johnson Rampage almost fits that bill by making major departures from its button-breaking namesake.
Casually taking the broadest stretches of the “giant monsters pooping on a destructive citywide scale” premise and turning it into a groundlessly stupid $140 million creature feature has worked very well over the long run Rampage Ranked the third highest-grossing entry in the history of the genre after earning $428 million at the box office.
It proved about as polarizing as you’d expect from a film that focuses on The Rock and attempts to save the world from mutant animals as well, with the film’s 51 percent Rotten Tomatoes score falling from a 72 percent user rating was blown out of the water. Rampage is big, loud, silly, and kinda fun when you need to relax and turn off your brain, which is possibly why it’s in the midst of its latest on-demand revival.
According to FlixPatrol, the harmlessly entertaining epic was on the… well, you get the point… by earning a spot on the world’s most watched charts on HBO Max, Prime Video and iTunes at various spots this week. Maybe fans are diving into the Johnson back catalog to tide them over until they see it Black Adamor maybe there’s never a bad time to watch gigantic monsters bare their fangs and throw themselves down.
