Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's new monster movie "Rampage," based on the 1980s arcade game, crashes into theaters this weekend, but it will have to fight off some dismal (and hilarious) reviews if it wants to succeed.

Critics aren't being kind to the movie, where Johnson plays primatologist Davis Okoye who has a strong bond with George, an albino silverback gorilla that Okoye rescued as an infant from poachers.

It sounds like a cute friendship - until George is mutated by a chemical and goes on a (you guessed it) rampage. There's also a giant wolf and crocodile.

Business Insider's own Jason Guerrasio said in his review that the movie "is a CGI wonder with little plot and a whole lot of awful cliches and bad dialogue," but Dwayne Johnson's charisma "proves why he's making millions of dollars a movie."

Johnson and co-star Jeffrey Dean Morgan seem to be the only silver lining in the movie among critics, but not even they can't save what they call a surprisingly bland monster movie with a horrible, unfocused script.
