Het nieuwe Dwayne Johnson-actiespektakel Rampage is in Los Angeles in wereldpremière gegaan. De eerste reacties van de pers spreken van een ‘entertainend maar hersenloos’ avontuur. Recensenten prijzen het zelfbewuste kantje van de videogameverfilming, de vertolkingen van Johnson en Jeffrey Dean Morgan en de relatie tussen The Rock en de gorilla George. De bad guys krijgt wel kritiek om zijn over the top-gehalte.
#Rampage certainly doesn’t break the video game movie curse and has some of the worst villains I’ve seen on screen this year (and I saw Ready Player One) but it’s enjoyable in a disposable sense. I cared more about the Rock/ape relationship than I did the city smashing.

Rampage is ridiculous and fun!
It's a big movie, kind of like Transformers, back in the days when they were pretty good, but with giant monsters.

RAMPAGE was a mindless, popcorn action flick, in all the best ways. the VFX looked great, and watching the creatures destroy a full city was pretty awesome. Jeffery Dean Morgan steals the movie, only negative I have is the villain is a little to over the top.

#Rampage: This movie is exactly what you think it's going to be. Afterward, a guy near me said to his friend, "That was great. You didn't have to think AT ALL!"

RAMPAGE is the ultimate guilty pleasure. Brad Peyton has created a big budget B movie & Dwayne Johnson delivers his most outrageous performance to date. #Rampage is the ultimate monster movie and is non-stop campy fun. Did I mention that Dwayne Johnson fights a giant flying wolf? pic.twitter.com/0aFNqnxRl7
