Plot – Spoilers:
Having stocked himself with money following his Rampage, Bill has been lying low, planning his next outing. This time, his target is a TV station and its popular anchor, to help get his message wider viewership.
There are several things unclear here. Such as – why does he need mainstream viewership when he evidently has a mass internet following. How long has be been in hiding – the number of years mentioned keeps getting muddled. The numerous contradictions in Bill’s worldview, which is fine if you accept him as a sociopath.
There are Rampage 1-type moments like when he sits his ass down in an alley and knocks off passerbys, one by one. But overall, Rampage 2 is a notch below the first one, with enough in it to be a decent successor.
Great low-budget film with plenty of great points. “Two thumbs up”. Thanks EUM for uploading this. I also liked the first Rampage. Awesome website!
Slightly less cringy than the first one – at least here he says some true things about the US – and better pacing. Boll may never atone for his cinematic crimes, but at least he made somewhat decent background noise while I cleaned my apartment. Thanks EUM!
There is certainly a message in this film but the way of solving it is not by killing innocent people. There really is no solution, everyone is a slave to the system in the end. Controversial subject, some good acting and the tension was palpable. I liked this one more than the first film, it had a bit more thought put into it. A good series, looking forward to the next one. Cheers.
They made Bills points too rational, I feel like this movie is going to inspire another shooter.
