On this week’s episode of Film Club, A.V. Club film editor A.A. Dowd and staff critic Ignatiy Vishnevetsky take a look at the latest Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson vehicle, Rampage, loosely based on the arcade game of the same name. The Rock stars as Davis, a primatologist whose best friend—an orphaned albino gorilla named George—is transformed into a building-size monster by an experimental mutagen, along with a gray wolf and an American alligator. The resulting combination is a bizarre mix of over-the-top death and destruction, vaguely family-friendly comedy, and dick jokes.
