The story is pretty good, the acting isnt bad and the effects are awesome.
Tomas Rodriguez
The key to a film like this is the buildup; we have to emotionally connect to both the main character and his situation.
Michael A. Mccullough
If, however, you like movies that make you think for days after you saw it, you'll most likely enjoy this.

Yes, the apocalypse is upon us! Finally, a good film from Uwe Boll! :) I say that in complete jest. Mr. Boll's work has been surrounded by a lot of contentious debate regarding its quality, in which even he himself has been involved - and I don't want to get into here. With that said, I can truly say this movie was a huge surprise, surpassing all of my expectations - and then some! I heard good things about the film quite some time ago, and eagerly rushed out to rent it when I found out it had been released.

The plot is quite simple: a trouble young man (early 20s) is taken to the limits and beyond by various stressors and goes on a bloody rampage. (The title may have clued you in a bit!) While the plot is simple, the story contains some very interesting twists and turns, which I'll leave to the viewers to find out for themselves. The film is powerful, gripping, ultra-violent, and, in some ways, thought provoking. It's partially shot in what can be described as "documentary style" - i.e. shaky cameras, chase footage, etc - but not entirely. Some of the film is more traditional in its approach to capture the on screen events, and does so with a fairly high level of production. Even the documentary style shots don't come across like the "Blair Witch." They're much more polished. There is no "rock" soundtrack or catchy theme music, and the film doesn't try to portray the seemingly mindless violence that is at its core as entertainment. Rather, the film is more of a documentary of a trouble person, who on the outside seems lost, but inside is revealed to be quite clever and calculating. The overall filmmaking approach makes for a truly powerful film. From scene to scene, the suspense is tangible and you'll hold your breath waiting for events to unfold - at least, I did.

Every once in awhile a film comes out of nowhere and seems to blister the screen. Rampage is a simple story that engages the viewer with a harsh acuity that is impossible to disregard. If you're addicted to danger, this is awesomely brutal and all too real. It's not based on a video game, Director Uwe Boll gets serious here and takes absolutely no prisoners.

It's the story of a young man named Bill. He's a bit of a slacker, floating around through life with little direction or motivation. His parents are getting leery of his lackluster drive, putting pressure on their son to grow up and start showing some initiative. One day, Bill finally reaches his breaking point.
After being dissatisfied with the service from a coffee shop employee, Bill is bound and determined to get revenge. Not only on the worker, but the entire town. With a couple of machine guns and a full body suit of Kevlar armor, he goes on a killing rampage. It's a harrowing display of controlled but psychotic madness. Pretty difficult not to get immediate flashbacks of Columbine or Virginia Tech.

Reasons? The violence seems pretty senseless. Frustration, indifference, mental instability? Or maybe like the P.O.D. song, maybe Bill just needed to be hugged. He seems to be a bit introverted, without too many friends. He resembles countless other young people in society today. Could be your son, your neighbor, your classmate. That makes this all the more frightening. He brashly claim to be on some sort of mission because much of the world's problems come from overpopulation. Not to mention the ineptitude of the mass majority (this coming from a total deadbeat). Anyway, time for him to start cleaning house, and it's survival of the fittest.

Final grade = A.

This is the second film by Uwe Boll I have seen, the other being Stoic, the very dark and unsettling prison film where cellmates systematically torture and murder one of their own. That film was a very unforgiving and very depressing story with hardly a happy ending. In this film the same holds true. A demented young man masterminds a scheme to go on a killing rampage murdering most of the people who live in his town. Indeed he kills about 75 percent of the people he comes across in a horrifying 40 minute killing spree. He feels justified by what he does. He feels no remorse what so ever. And worst of all he gets away with it. The sheer unthinkable horror that takes place in this film seems like some awful dream that could never happen in real life, but it already has, many times. People have already done things this brutal. Mindless, sickening rampages that boggle the imagination. This film is totally heartless and horrific in its story about a truly disturbed individual doing something that is so vile and ugly it makes you wonder what is wrong with the human race. Boll has been called the Ed Wood of modern day films having created apparently some very bad movies. Well I haven't seen any of his other films, but Stoic and this movie are both very good films. Some people felt the actress who played the main characters mother was a bad actress. I don't agree. She seemed naturalistic to me, meaning very real to life. An average person. She seemed human, normal, therefor her acting was good in my opinion. This is an ugly film to watch but its very well done and very sobering in its content. Its also a social commentary and a dark reminder of what some humans are capable of. Riveting movie making.
