Rampage Review

Let me just start by saying I've played the arcade game this movie is based on, and I can say that this movie is as faithful an adaptation of the source material as a video game like that can get. That aside, I didn't love this movie, but I didn't hate it either. It's a C- movie, and if it told its story better, I'd give it a solid B, but it is what it is. If Ready Player One proved anything, it's that direct video game adaptations are not the way to go, so a C- movie I wouldn't recommend unless you really like The Rock and/or want to kill some time in a movie theater with a nicer atmosphere.
