OF COURSE IT CAN FLY
24 August 2018
Well, this in truth is around 100 minutes of mindless fun, very much a tongue-in-cheek monster/disaster movie which tells of three creatures being infected by a gene-manipulation drug which survives a space-pod explosion upon earth's re-entry causing three capsules containing the substance to fall to Earth.
The creatures, a crocodile a gray wolf and George an albino gorilla who had been saved when very young by Primatologist Dave Okoye played by Dwayne Johnson...........the two having had a special relationship being able to communicate by sign-language.
The drug causes all three to grow larger and larger very quickly also making them increasingly aggressive.
The three will join forces to wreak havoc on the city of Chicago which the authorities struggle to evacuate in time.
Only if Dave joined by Dr Kate Caldwell a genetic engineer played by Naomi Harris who had played a part in the development of the drug reach the office before the three creatures and obtain a anti-serum Kate knows has been developed to hopefully calm aggressive elements of the drug the three had been exposed to.
Can Dave appeal to George's friendship to advert complete destruction of the city or is it just too late ?
A fun-ride based on game (as many are) with some good special-effects to enjoy along the way....a film to maybe catch on the movie-channel.
Footnote - Seems to me Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson is in an awful lot of action movies these days....just hope they arn't gonna re-make a film about the D-Day landings starring Dwayne, they'd have him storming the beaches single-handed lol
