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.

Magic Mike XXL

I did not see the 2012 installment of “Magic Mike”. I thought it was cheesy, so I decided to skip it. After seeing an extended trailer I decided to give “Magic Mike XXL” a look.

All I can say is “Ooh La La!!! Eye Candy, Six-Packs and G-Strings Galore!!”

Mike (Channing Tatum) has given up the Stripper Life and owns his own Furniture making business in Florida. His old stripper friends come calling. They want to do one last blow-out show. With great reluctance Mike (Channing) agrees to join them, so they hit the road for Myrtle Beach.

What keeps “Magic Mike XXL” from being a 4 or 5 star movie is that the first 40 minutes is BORING!!

In comes Rome (Jada Pinkett Smith) and wow! The story picks up! From that point until the end you do not want to leave your seat!

Its sultry eye popping moves and G-Strings flying. The enticing dances are smooth and slick. “Magic Mike XXL” works really hard to keep it “R” rated, but with a little imagination it’s all “X” rated.
BTW…For you NFL fans, former NY Giants player Michael Strahan is in this movie. You will see him like you have never seen him before. I was shocked!!

“Magic Mike XXL” is definitely a “Chick Flick”. It’s all for the ladies. It’s definitely worth seeing even though the first 40 minute are a drag. The music is awesome!

I anticipate that “Magic Mike XXL” will do better than the $40 million opening weekend its 2012 predecessor enjoyed.
