Athena-1, a space station owned by gene manipulation company Energyne, is destroyed after a laboratory rat mutates and wreaks havoc. Dr. Kerry Atkins, the lone surviving crew member, is ordered by CEO Claire Wyden to retrieve research canisters containing a pathogen. Atkins is able to flee in the escape pod when the station implodes, but due to damage from the rat it disintegrates upon re-entry, killing her. The falling pieces leave a trail of debris across the United States, including the Everglades in Florida, where a canister is consumed by an American crocodile, and a forest in Wyoming, where a gray wolf is exposed to the pathogen.

What do you expect?

Ok, let's see. A movie based on an incredibly simple video game about monsters climbing buildings and eating people.

Do people go in thinking it's going to be Oscar material?

I love Godzilla. I love Kong Skull Island, Pacific Rim, you get the picture.

It's a giant monster movie with The Rock and Negan in it. And it is a barrel of fun.

The humor is good, the effects are great, the story is interesting, the pace is fast, the characters are fun.

If you can turn off your brain and just have a good time, you'll love this.

For people saying they hated it, I have to question their reasoning for spending money on a movie that is clearly laid out by the trailer and premise alone.

If you didn't enjoy it, what on earth did you expect?????

Accept the film for what it is

A movie about an old arcade game starring the Rock? Count me in. I went in with my brain shut off, and got a couple chuckles and, for the most part, everything I expected.

Gloriously Terrible

Every single cliche of an action/horror/adventure flick rolled up into one. The charisma of the two big guys (Dwayne and George) carry the entire movie. This movie is not going to change your life, but it will keep you mildly amused.
