Athena-1, a space station owned by gene manipulation company Energyne, is destroyed after a laboratory rat mutates and wreaks havoc. Dr. Kerry Atkins, the lone surviving crew member, is ordered by CEO Claire Wyden to retrieve research canisters containing a pathogen. Atkins is able to flee in the escape pod when the station implodes, but due to damage from the rat it disintegrates upon re-entry, killing her. The falling pieces leave a trail of debris across the United States, including the Everglades in Florida, where a canister is consumed by an American crocodile, and a forest in Wyoming, where a gray wolf is exposed to the pathogen. Primatologist Davis Okoye, a former US Army Special Forces soldier and member of an anti-poaching unit, works at the San Diego Wildlife Sanctuary. He has befriended a rare albino western lowland gorilla named George, having saved him from poachers, and communicates with George using sign language and hand gestures. At night, one of the canisters crash-lands in George's habitat, and George is exposed to the pathogen..


This film far exceeds my initial interest.
I have watched this at least 20 times and plan on watching it another 20.
Right now, its one of my favorite movies and so far, everyone I have talked to that has seen it loves it.

It just 'works' on so many levels.
I have so many points worthy of discussion.
If there isn't a movie series done, it will be a crime!
Waiting with anticipation for Rampage 2!

My rating: 4.995 out of 5 rampaging giant mutant animals!

Noteworthy:
Pay attention to Dr. Kerry Atkins when she attempts to 'save' the canisters on the station.
Note that there are 8 canisters and she only save 3.
Also note that said canisters are designed to survive reentry.
There are 5 other canisters that went down with the station.
This leave the option for an additional 5 more films that could continue the story.
I don't think we have seen the last of George and Davis.

There are a few people that haven't seen the film that think it will be bad because it is based on a game.
All I can say is "give it a watch"
Everyone, and I do mean everyone I know that has seen it, likes it.
I just watched it again tonight.
I'll watch it again before the end of the month.
Its well made and entertaining.
But, hey, I also liked Battleship (2012)

I watch a lot of bad movies, really bad movies.
When I see one that has good production values, likeable characters and a story that makes sense (in the scope of the film) it is refreshing and entertaining.
I don't make movies.
I watch them, this one is worthy of watching.
