Rampage in 3D

A Space and Science project involving DNA goes all wrong. That is the premises for Rampage.

A gentle Silverback Gorilla named George who resides at a zoo, a wild Coyote in Wyoming and a Crocodile all become the unwilling recipients of a DNA sample that crash lands in various parts of the US from a Space Satellite Shuttle that was heading to Earth but exploded upon entry to Earth’s atmosphere.

Primatologist Davis Okoye (Dwayne Johnson) has a bond with George and can communicate with him. Davis attempts to calm George when it’s obvious that something has gone terribly wrong. The Authorities sedate George and attempt to transport him to a secure facility. Davis is also brought along.

The company who is involved with the DNA project attempts to cover their tracks once it’s determined that the DNA samples have crash landed back on earth. They have their own military personnel at their disposal and dispatch them to find and kill the Coyote.
But things go terribly wrong. The story unfolds from there…

Every year these types of movies make their way to the big screen.
This one is actually pretty good. Dwayne Johnson always does well in action movies. “Rampage” will appeal to the younger set because there are large animals running wild in the big city and Dwayne Johnson and the military are coming to the rescue.
The cinematography is great. There was even some comic relief.

If you like these types of movies, check out “Rampage”.

Miss Sloane

I love Jessica Chastain and she does not disappoint in “Miss Sloane”.

All eyes are on Washington as a campaign ensues. Miss Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain) is a highly sought after lobbyist in D.C. whose record of success is unmatched.

As the power brokers in Washington make their moves, Elizabeth Sloane is down-right ruthless and she is right there doing whatever is necessary to win even if the price for winning costs her. The story unfolds from there…

“Miss Sloane” is a gripping, powerful Political Drama. The story is moving and gets better as it progresses. The movie definitely will make you look at the political landscape in Washington, D.C. with wide open eyes.

It would have been nice if the character “Miss Elizabeth Sloane” had been a bit more in-depth. There is a lot of under-current that is not explored and this keeps the movie from being 5 stars.

It was great to see Sam Waterston who was the long time “DA” in the original NBC hit Law & Order.

“Miss Sloane” is definitely worth seeing and is worth the price of its ticket.

This is a 4 Star Movie!
