Rampage (2018)

rampage_ver2_xxlg

When three different animals become infected with a dangerous pathogen, a primatologist and a geneticist team up to stop them from destroying Chicago. (IMDb)
Given its wild concept and expectedly undercooked plot and characters (the villains’ motives and the opening supporting cast end up MIA), the film’s at its best when it aims for camp (see Davis in the helicopter: “It’s coming back to me”) and at its worst when it takes itself too seriously (sorry, you did *not* earn the slow motion and mournful strings post-climax). Good destructo-action, mediocre everything else (even poor sometimes–what was with that awful parachute selfie camera angle?)
6/10 (Mediocre)
